    I found them to be a bit muddy when fingerpicking, but these strings sing when you’re doing some old fashioned campfire strumming. Recommend them for that specifically.

    • Woodtone Strings

      Excellent, glad you like our Country Series strings for when you’re using a pick! For a little brighter tone when you’re fingerpicking, you might want to check out our 80/20 Bronze Naturals — we have them in light and medium gauges… we’d probably choose light for fingerpicking. We’re also building our custom light strings now and we’ll have those ready in a few weeks. THanks again for your feedback! We appreciate it.

    I’ve tried a lot of brands. I’m sold on Woodtone. These strings are the sound and feel I’ve been looking for! If you own a Martin give these a try!

    I’m enjoying the new strings on my Sigma Martin. I like the sound and the softness of them. The only thing I found wrong was the packaging.

    • Woodtone Strings

      Thanks Larry! Glad you’re liking the strings! If you have a minute, can you let us know what you didn’t like about the packaging? We’re pretty proud of our packaging and we’d like to improve it where we can. Thanks!

    The good:
    I ordered two each of the Country & Bluegrass series and put them on a Martin, a Furch, a Larrivee and a Taylor. Great projection and tone and they played nicely. The Country series was my favorite of the two. They’re comparable to the Santa Cruz strings and, at $5.00 less, I would choose them over the Santa Cruz any day.
    The bad:
    One set looked like it hadn’t been washed before packaging. After just a few minutes of playing my fingers were filthy. The other three packages were fine. In addition, the shipping could be a little quicker.

    I will definitely be buying more of these in the future.

    I just put the first of the two sets I purchased recently (first-time user) on my 1970 Guild D-25, and they sound wonderful! Rich, full tone! I am very pleased and I may have found a new go-to brand!

    Excellent! I decided to try Woodstone Country to see if I could get a little more richer tone from my base strings. I installed them on my Alvarez and was richly rewarded. While not as easy to play as my extra lites, they gave my the booming rich sound I was looking for. I’m now going to install a set on my 55 year old Yamaha red Label. Can’t wait! Great strings!

    Got the banjo strings for my 5 string and the Country’s for my 6 string Guild D-55 and can’t say enough good things about these strings. Durable, Vibrant, continuous crisp and resonant, and dependable. The string worlds best kept secret! Give ‘em a try and get the word out!!!

    Along with the ease of playing, which is very important, Woodtone strings have a resonant and bright tone. This is wonderful for finger style players’ expression and range. I used them also for my lap style guitar and got great results.

    The strings sound really good. I bought two packs and put them on my guitar and the G string broke so I got the G string out of the second pack and that one broke too. I can’t say that I don’t like them because I havnt tried them out yet. I was disappointed to not be able to play my guitar.

      Sorry the strings broke on you there! We’ll get some replacement strings sent out to you.

    Jeff Steinberg (verified owner)

    I’m really liking these strings, I’ve always used light gauge uncoated strings, the times I’ve tried mediums I felt they were too stiff and hard on the fingers. These strings seem like a perfect compromise between the two. I’ve always hated coated strings as they felt slippery but I don’t feel that with these strings. If they last longer then regular uncoated stings they’ll definitely be a home run. Already ordered a couple of more sets to try on my other guitars.

    Joseph H Sipavich (verified owner)

    I’ve been trying several new strings over the past year. Woodtone is the hands down winner. On all other brands, the low E string sounds muddy very quickly. Not Woodtone! I find myself practicing more because the tone is so pleasing. Well done guys. Highly recommended.

    Clint Rawlings (verified owner)

    Love the strings. They are the best all around strings i have found. Only one small issue. They are packaged with 2 strings to an envelope, 1 (E) & 4 (G), 2 (A) & 5 (B), and 3 (D) & 6 (e) which is not a problem but it is when strings 3 & 6 are in the envelope labeled 1 & 4. Not paying attention I opened the envelope labeled 1 & 4, installed string 1 and trimmed it only to realize it was string 3 and now it was too short to put it where it was suppose to go. So basically that complete set was done. Luckily I ordered 3 sets. Those sets were also labeled incorrectly. Still get 5 stars from me. I should’ve caught that before i installed. Great communication from staff during my order. My new go to strings

    Carlos Lizarazo (verified owner)

    I went from light to medium on my Sigma. Slightly better tone but hard on the fingers. I was going back to light but decided to give the Country a try first. GREAT sound and not to bad on the fingers. More ordered!

    David R Yankee (verified owner)

    put a set on my Martin Gpcpa4. Had never played coated strings before, these felt “normal”, and there was no new string “quack”. They hold pitch very well. The gauges felt comfortable from the start. Sound really opened up after a good half hour of playing. I have had them on for three months, playing everyday, and there has been minimal decline in tone quality or dynamic range.
    The tone- rich, warm, and balanced. The balance across the entire set is truly remarkable. I had been building my own custom gauge sets, and struggled to achieve such balance.
    The treble strings sing, respond to vibrato and bending, while the basses are warm, with good definition.
    I play both flatpick and finger style, rock stuff, since the 1970’s. These are the best strings I have played.
    Looking forward to trying your bluegrass set on my D-18, will keep you posted.

    David Stein (verified owner)

    I like the size of country series, half way. Great tone. I find the wound strings to have sharp edges with lots of string noise when moving up and down the string. They are not very comfortable after extended play.

    • Woodtone Strings

      Glad you like the tone and the gauge of our Country Series! Our customers are usually really happy with the reduced string noise and soft feel of our strings compared to other brands out there… the micro coating we use is VERY thin so we don’t compromise the true natural tone of our strings. If you’re used to playing with some other string brands that use a much thicker coating, you might be more familiar with the slick feeling of the thick coating on their strings. Hope you can try out the Woodtones a bit longer and hopefully develop a feel for our thinner micro coating. Thanks for the feedback!

    Just put these on strings on my Seagull Maritime dreadnaught they sound rich and robust. I usually put Elixir strings strings on my guitars but they are not good for heavy strumming these Woostones strings fit the niche I was looking for.

    Ken Martin (verified owner)

    I ordered two sets of the Country Series strings for my 2013 Blueridge BR160ACE. The tone is really nice for that guitar, and I love the fact that I can bend the higher strings if I want. I’m considering putting the other set on my 1982 Sigma-Martin to see how they sound. I can’t speak to longevity, as I’ve only had them on for a couple weeks. So far, they’re holding their tone very well. I’ll be buying more of these, and I’m considering a set of the Bluegrass strings for my tricone roundneck.

    Patrick McGillen (verified owner)

    Thank you very much. The strings have a nice mellow sound on my Fender guitar. I like them. Do you have any similar strings for a mandolin, preferably for bluegrass style?

    • Woodtone Strings

      We’re working on our mandolin strings now — we’ll have light gauge and medium gauge. We should have them launched in about six weeks and you can find them on our website when they’re available. Hope you can try some out!

    Gene Ingram

    I bought 4 packs, to try on each of the following guitars: Guild D55, Guild D20, Guild D125, and a Masterbilt Epiphone EF-500. The tone is amazing. There’s enough boom on the top strings to move the tops around and made all 4 sound like cannons! The light side is equally perfect. You can bend, and still have your tone too. With a very light coating, these are the most comfortable playing strings in production. That matters because I play over 200 shows per year.. Goodbye D’Addario. So long Elixer. It’s Woodtones for me. Made In the USA!

    Hey WTS, I recently put a set on. Tone was great but I had an issue with the big E and A strings going dead after 2 gigs. I had recently purchased two sets so I put on the second set and played one set. They sound and feel great. For me the verdict is still out, but am looking forward to playing them this week. I play a j200 and tune down a half step. I will write another review after I play the other set.

    • Woodtone Strings

      Hi Cory – Sorry the E and A strings went dead on you. That normally isn’t an issue with our strings so I’m not totally sure what happened there, but we’ll send you a free bonus pack today to make up for it. Hope they work out better for you this time! – Rob

    I’m really liking the sound I’m now achieving. I like playing the classic country, American gospel and classic ‘cowboy’ songs. When I gave the strings to the music store I deal with, they understood the ‘sound’ I was looking for and paid more attention to the guitar set-up. I haven’t been playing for all that long, but I’m very happy with the sound I’m now getting from the guitar.

    I’ll be using these from now on.
    Wish you guys made these in a bronze instead of phospher.
    We’ll see how these hold up.
    Really nice to have an alternate.
    Keep up the good work!

    Received my set of country strings and installed them on my two acoustic/electric guitars and right away I noticed a great change in the tone of my guitars. The strings are very easy to play and easy on the fingers after playing on custom lights. I would highly recommend these strings and by the way, after playing on them for a week they just continue to sound better, yep, I have already ordered two more sets!

    I purchased these strings a few weeks ago, but I thought there was some life on my last set so I waited. Today, I cleaned my guitar, and put the new strings on…WOW! I know that strings don’t make you a better guitar player, but it sure feels that way. The strings are easy to play like lights, but have a clear, rich tone like mediums. They ring out and sustain sound. I think I’ve found my permanent strings. Wonderful!

    Very nice. Put them on my Collings D2H and they sing. The gauge weights make it easy to play while retaining the low end resonance without any buzz. Will definitely use them again.

    Ordered 3 sets. First set installed 3 days ago on an 1984 vintage Alvarez model 5022 acoustic dreadnaught guitar. I am totally satisfied….even amazed at how sweet the guitar sounds and easy on fingers. I have played acoustic guitar for 50 years (I am 67) and had settled in using nothing but D’Addario Phosphorus Bronze coated light gauge for years after experimenting with Elixers, Martins….etc. BUT I’m liking these new Woodtone strings. They have more of a natural “woodtone”. They are not quite a boomy BUT the tone and the even volume of each string is worth the trade. Of course longevity will be the test. Thank you Mr. Woodtone for making a high quality string at a fair market price. I will be ordering more. (I own 5 guitars 🙂 ~Kevin

    First of all, I just re-strung my Martin 000R guitar. I’ve been using light guage strings for some time now and these play a little harder. The sound is fantastic and I’m hoping I can adjust to the shall we say less flexible Woodtone strings.

    • Woodtone Strings

      Glad you like the sound! We’ll have light gauge strings available in a couple months — they are in production and on the way soon. We think you’d love the lighter gauge on your 000R since it has a smaller body. Our new light gauge strings will have light tension as well which is great for 000 body style guitars. Hope you can try some out!

    Giving a 5 star, as I was impressed from first strum. ’52 Southern Jumbo and ’50 J50 are sounding rich, woody and these strings bring out the ancient tones in that ol’ wood. Gonna do more trials…

    Excellent product, Exactly what I was looking for to use on my archtop. The gauges and the tension are just what I needed and the bronze mellowed out the maple guitar just enough. I look forward to these strings being available uncoated. I would certainly recommend these strings for any acoustic guitar.

    The woodtone strings are not too bright which I prefer, warm sound. I had them installed on my D28 modern deluxe. I hear a similarity to Sta Cruz light tension strings (parabolic) or Pearson strings but this one has coating which is a plus 🙂 . Still have to try the bluegrass strings on my D42.

    Great strings. Some of the best sounding I have used. However, one of the packs I ordered came with two high E strings and was missing the G string. I ordered three packs so it wasn’t a huge problem, but for the price, I would expect better quality control.

    • Woodtone Strings

      Glad you’re happy with the tone! Really sorry about the one pack that had duplicate E strings. We’re not sure how that could have happened since we’re really careful about quality control but somehow that must’ve slipped through the cracks! We apologize! We’ll send you a replacement set and a bonus set for your troubles. Thanks for the feedback Hunter.

    These strings were recommended by Devin at Country Guitar Online. As he’s been my video learning mentor for improving my guitar skills during the pandemic, I sent away for a set. I’m not disappointed. Really nice tone for strumming and finger-picking. They feel good under the fretting fingers. Others have noticed the difference in my sound. I would definitely get them again.

    First time I ordered from Woodtone, I ordered 3 sets so I would have extra, glad I did because when I changed my strings and got to the G string I got within a 1/2 note away in tuning and it snapped. I took another from the second set and same thing. So close then snap. Luckily the 3rd set the G string did tune. Had no other issues with the other strings just two sets short of a G string. With all that said I do love the strings and love the sound from them.

    • Woodtone Strings

      Hi Michael, Sorry those two G strings gave you trouble. Glad you like the strings though! We’ll mail you a few replacement G strings tomorrow so you have two complete sets and a backup G string just in case. G strings are the most susceptible to breakage because the core wire of the G string is the thinnest wire in a set of guitar strings, but if it happens again when you’re installing the next G string, you may want to check the tuning post for any sharp edges or burrs. The guy in this article shows an easy method for smoothing down sharp tuning post edges and how to check for issues in the nut slot Glad you’re liking the Woodtone strings! Let us know if you need anything else in the meantime.

    After a couple of weeks, I am SOLD on these strings!!! Had to really test them first! No question, they are very comfortable on the fingers after long stretches of playing, but the tone is wonderfully superb as well! Of course, this ‘in-between’ Gauge string set is PERFECT! I’ve been wanting this gauge set for years! Primarily a EJ-17 guy on my D-18, I definitely like these strings better! Super job to Woodtone strings! And like MANY other reviews mentioned, I ‘too’ had played so many different sets of strings over the years. Sure, the playability of ‘Lights’ were great, BUT lost some volume and tone. ‘Mediums’ – gave me more volume, but they would wear you out over a period of time. I also never really wanted more tension on the Bridge than was necessary. ‘Bluegrass’ set? Same issues. CONCLUSION: You WILL not be disappointed in these strings, in my opinion, if you are desiring that perfect blend between Lights and Mediums!

Hopefully there will be UK stockist within 6 months when I will be buying more!

    I usually don’t write reviews on products but I thought I should share my opinion. I’m so impressed with these strings. Been playing on them the last week and I’m ordering more strings for my second guitar.

    All I can say is that the tone is so great and it’s easier to play on the lighter gauge. I agree with the other reviews, these strings are legit.
