Designed from the inside out for balanced performance in tone and feel, Phosphor Bronze wrap wire produces a rich, full sound with even tone throughout the harmonic range, while "Composite Gauging" provides for a set that is consistent in tension and amplitude from string to string.

Like 'em!


Never tried Adamas strings before, but was recommended for my 000-28 on Acoustic Guitar Forum. Wow! Beautiful tone and really brought my guitar back to life. Will be using these for awhile!

New to me!


Never tried these Adamas PBs before, but was recommended to me on acoustic guitar forum. I use them on my martin 000-28 and they have really brightened up the sound! I rarely use a pick, so brighter strings are a must otherwise I suffer from the mellows, as far as guitar tone. So far, so good!

I would buy this product again.


These strings are great. I have an Ovation Applause and love the sound I get with these strings. They are easy to play too.

My Ovation 1986 series uses nothing but 1717.


I have a 1986 collector series Ovation and I have used nothing but Adamas. My guitar stays in tune and rarely goes out of tune. I still use a tuner. I use the 1717 extra light guage. It's been hard to find them, but when I do I buy about 10 sets.

Adamas Strings the best


I've been using these strings for years and they are the best for country sound. Too bad they are discontinued by Adamas.

Hard to find elsewhere


Supposedly backordered until October, received them much sooner.

Acoustic guitar strings that play like electric


These stings feel as close to electric guitar strings as I've ever felt. Specificlly, they allow for more electric guitar style bending vs. feeling like your trying to bend an I-Beam. The only downside is the 3rd string used to not be a wound string like an electric guitar but now it's wound. Other than that, they're perfect for me. I also don't like other coated strings because they feel a little greasy as these have good finger resistance without being slippery. I've also tried D'Addario's (.011), Elixier's (.013), and DR's (.010)... FYI: Mine are the 1818E Light (.012 - .053).

Try just one set.....OH MY GOD


DR Strings reek!!!! I just put a set on my acoustic and they sounded so bad I had to call a Guitar tech ...who said that "sitar" sound was a bad string. Promptly removed said DR Strings and replaced with a set of Kamen "Adamas" by ovation. (Cmdr. Adama,he he he) Anyways, buy a set of these Lord they make the guitar 10x better sounding!
