    I am an average, at best, guitar player- playing with friends and at our little church. I really like the tone your strings produce. I have given several sets away to friends and for me, these are my “go to strings “. Great product!! I will add I have the Country strings on another guitar and really enjoy them as well !

    I just reordered but still playing on my first set of the bluegrass strings! After 2 months strings sound great. I play a Collings D3 custom and use a Blue chip Tad 50 pick that plays so smooth on these strings. The coating on the string best ever! I reordered 2 sets of the country and 1 bluegrass for some friends so they love the sound as much as me.

      Hey James – Glad you like the strings! Really sorry about the delay on your order. You won’t see delays like that on future orders…we were a bit behind there for a month or so, but we’ve increased production and we’re back to shipping all strings within 24 hours. If you send us an email when you place your next order, we’ll hook you up with a free pack to make up for it. Cheers!

    I’ve been using regular lights for some years and I’ve forgotten how much tone my Larivee had! These strings are good quality.

    The bluegrass set sounds great on my ’68 D35; they’ve been on a couple of weeks. I tend not to change strings all that ofter.
    The country set I put on my ’55 000-21 sound a bit thin. I strung both guitars up at the same time. We’ll see how both sets last. So I’d give the country set 3 stars and the bluegrass set 5 stars. I have another set of each. Perhaps I’ll try the other country set on my D18…

    Great sounding bluegrass strings! A louder tone than my old country strings. Quality product, great company and I’d highly recommend Woodtone strings to others!

    Definitely different sound. Balanced and loud for bluegrass. Seemed to tune quicker and stay in tune with only minor adjustments

    baby taylor and ovation balladeer both stronger solo guitars going from 10’s to these wound 11’s. Parlor guitar is probably next. If I like a string, I don’t keep looking.

    Loaded country strings on Gibson blueridge, clear and warm sound , easy on fingers. Play time will tell, but I think I may have found a keeper. Have not had chance to try bluegrass strings yet .

    Just put them on my Yamaha jumbo, and they added volume and test tone. Will certainly buy them again.

    Grandy (verified owner)

    Put them on my Gibson AJ last week and so far am pleased with the sound. I was using light strings before and can feel the difference in these stings being a mix of light and medium strings. No sure if I like the heavier strings, but will give them a fair trial. So far I’m satisfied.

    I have the Bluegrass strings on my 2006 D18 Authentic 1937. So far they are great. Hopefully they have good longevity. I’ve always used Elixir Nanoweb Med.

    It’s rarely I string up my Huss & Dolton DRH and feel instantly connected with such clear sustain and tone. These strings are a revelation.

    A+ strings. Instantly improved my guitar tone. Will definitely buy another set whenever I need more.

    I ordered 2 sets of the Bluegrass strings to try on my Martin HD-28 and D-15. I’ve been playing them for several hours everyday for 3 weeks now and they still sound great. I like the intermediate size between the lights and mediums too.

    These I like WAY better than the country strings. Good projection and clarity. The feel is much better as well. It never occurred to me the the core plays a significant role in string making. These I put on my OM-21, and was/am loving the sound I’m getting.

    These Bluegrass strings are awesome! I bought 2 sets. I put one on my Collins D1H and a set on my Martin HD28V. They stretched in quickly and are solid. The tone is wonderful, balanced and clear. This is the first set of lighter strings that I am happy with. I will order again.

    Ben Goff (verified owner)

    I’ve tried alot of strings over the years but these are by far the best. Once I tuned my guitar, there was very little stretching. That’s what I like about these strings. Like the old saying goes, you’ve tried the rest, now try the best.

    Christopher Williams (verified owner)

    After tying multiple brands in my quest to find the strings my Guild D-55 felt most alive with the search may have ended. The Woodtone Bluegrass gave my guitar more projection, balance, warmth, and bell-like trebles with great sustain. I never thought I would find a real contender with Elixirs PB but we have a real heavyweight contender with Woodtone at a better price point!!!!

    Put them on my Martin and they sounded great. Love the feel of them as I went up and down the fret board. Very happy with the tone in generated. I like them a lot. I plan to buy more after I test the Country set. I have a feeling it’s going to be hard to choose between the two. Are you planning to make any for 12 string guitars?

    • Woodtone Strings

      Awesome, thanks Trip! Glad you like the Bluegrass Series! You can’t go wrong with the Country Series either… they’re pretty similar but a little lighter to the touch because of the lighter tension. I think you’ll like them also. Yep, we’ll be manufacturing some strings for 12 string guitar fairly soon — probably will have them available within a few months or so. You’ll find them on our website when we have them ready to go. Thanks for the review!

    I put the bluegrass series on my Martin. I think these strings were made for this guitar! Best tone I’ve ever gotten. Will be using these strings for a long time. If you play Country/Bluegrass, you gotta get a set of Woodtone strings

    Been playing bluegrass for decades and have tried a lot of strings. This is by far the best I’ve tried. sounds great right when you put them on, keeps sounding better as the days go by. I highly recommend it.

    I’ve just stung my Matin Custom Dread with these to try out. I have found my new favorite string. It crosses over to any other genre besides country/bluegrass. Fine for soft finger style.
