    I purchased 2 of the Country Series and 1 of the Bluegrass Series. I restrung my Takemine with the Country’s and I believe it improved my tone! I have not used the Bluegrass yet. For the money I believe they sound great and will continue to use from now on.

    Killer strings , a great match for my. ‘69 Guild D40. And the service is also first class. I accidentally clipped the #2 string on the wrong side of the tuning post. I emailed the company for a replacement and a new string was on its way the next day, no questions., no charge.

    I love the sound of my Country set. However as a beginner they are a little hard to fret. Should I be starting with extra lights and move to these once I don’t hurt so bad or should I continue to use these and be patient for the sound to get there.

    I am very pleased with the tone from these strings, and the ability to bend the strings. These strings have been on my guitar for a month now and still sound fresh. I have always used Martin medium strings but now Woodtone is my new brand a little more expensive but last longer. Give the a try I think you will be pleased,, I am

    Got a set of the Country Series strings for a friend who just put them on his Martin. He told me he likes how they feel and sound. The next test is how long they sound good.
    I have a set of the Bluegrass Series that I will comment on after my next string change and I have played them for a while.

    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.

    Bought both.
    Country on my D28 and bluegrass on my D15.
    All I can say is awesome!
    What a difference.
    I have always used Martin 80/20 bronze forever.
    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!

    Doug (verified owner)

    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!

    James Price (verified owner)

    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.

    Kevin Wray (verified owner)

    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!

    The quality, sound and feel of the strings are great..unfortunately on my Zager guitar, full medium strings have the best low end sound.

    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…

    John Durso (verified owner)

    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.

    Alex Martinez (verified owner)

    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.

    Hunter Johnston (verified owner)

    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.

I will certainly recommend woodtone country strings to other guitarists. Great product.

    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 https://www.guitaranswerguy.com/breaking-guitar-strings/. 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.
