I like the sound of the D'addario strings, but I've had three sets recently that the winding came apart very quickly on. I since switched to Martins for my acoustics (which oddly, now includes a...

It wasn't that long ago that I saw a piece on Martin guitars on a TV. There was a guy there playing one made over a century ago, and man what a tone.
