Acoustic Guitar Community

Welcome to the Acoustic Guitar Community.

Still a very new newbie, but I do at least change my own strings. Been trying different strings out and would love some feedback from other Seagull owners about what you are using.

I'm playing an S-6 Original (Cedar top, laminate cherry sides/back) with a set of  D'Addario EJ Custom Lights. Like the tone and feel, but what do I know?

I've not tried coated strings yet.... opinions?

For my Seagull performer I use the Martin SP series and I'm happy with those. But I actually like the 80/20 Bronze ones more than the phosphor bronze. But that's when I play live. It feels like the tone is longer and a bit warmer somehow. On my 12 string I bought the Martin strings as well but the thin g string broke 2 times with new strings. I changed to Rotosound and I never had any problem with their strings.


Any suggestions what strings to buy for the warmest and most filling sound out there?
