Ok, basically, i've never restrung my acoustic and just snapped the high e, at the moment on my electric i like ernie balls regular slinky, so preferably similar feel but more importantly the sound. it is quite a sharp sounding acoustic so a nice whole sound aswell

Sorry if im being to picky

Cheers.

Don't buy any Ernie Ball acoustic strings. They make good electric strings and that is all.


Mellow sound and flexibility sounds like silk & steel strings to me. Martin makes a set, but apparently the ones made by John Pearse are really something special. I've personally only tried a guitar with the Martin silks on it, and they were too flexible for my tastes, but they sounded excellent.

Stay away from D'Addario phosphor bronze .12's if you want a mellow sound.

The only thing that matters in music these days is money - genuinely talented artists are passed over entirely or corraled into making non-offensive, non-threatening average music that sells.

Yeah, D'addarios are pretty bright. I'm pretty sure most major string manufacturers describe their string lines as either bright or mellow. Just jump around to a few and find mellow ones.

I'd reccomend some bronze strings - i have them on my acoustic and if you get the right set they'll sound great.. My acoustic has some fender factory strings on cause I haven't changed them over on the acoustic - but steel are too sharp on most acoustics so go for some bronze - i'm sure the others on this thread will tell you a good brand
