These strings are the absolute BEST I have ever used Adamas Phosphor bronze 1818E Light 12-53and I have been playing guitar for fifty years. They make my Ovation sing and bring my Yamaha alive. The price in the USA (Amazon.com) is eqivalent to £3.44 so why £9.33 in the UK?!

I've used these strings for 30 years 22 Nov 2011
By Ima Nonymous - Published on Amazon.com

I own an early Ovation Adamas guitar. Over the years I've tried every brand of string under the sun. Even the more expensive strings don't sound as good to my ear on this guitar as these strings do. None of my local music stores carry these strings so I have to order them on the web and have them shipped. Consequently, I have to think ahead and keep them in stock myself. To me it's worth the trouble.

When I started getting them from Amazon, I noticed that there are actually 2 different packages. I use the Light gauge. The Ovation numbers are 1818 and 1818E. The E stands for environmental packaging. The Environmental packaging only has 3 packets with 2 stings in each pack. The plain 1818's have 6 packets with one string in each pack. Amazon only carries the plain 1818's.

I had been using the 1818E's by default for a while because I never had a choice. I first thought that the ones that Amazon carried could be old stock because the 6 pack packaging was how they came years before. I took the chance and ordered the plain 1818's and found that there's no indication that the strings are old. They sound, perform and last the same as the 1818E's and I actually prefer to have a separate packet for each string.

Amazon now carries the 1818E's.

I prefer to buy items that Amazon carries so that they qualify for the Free Shipping on orders over $25. As of this writing, they're less expensive than the plain 1818's.

My favorite string ever since they came out. 22 April 2014
By Orinxpress - Published on Amazon.com
I've been playing almost 50 years, my main guitars right now are a rare Sada Yairi parlor (1970-ish), an Ovation Patriot (1976), and a Martin D35 (1970). I've tried all kinds of strings, having worked in a music store early on, and I've always loved these strings. A few years ago when they got scarce and I thought they had been discontinued, I was hoarding lights and mediums, and again started looking for an eventual substitute. Nothing stood out to me. The intonation and harmonics on these strings are true and wonderful, my Martin is so sensitive with these strings that if breeze comes through an open window, it sings spontaneously. If a car honks it's horn outside, the guitar honks back at it. Lately I've been favoring the medium gauge, as they still play easily and I've been using a lot of down tunings, sometimes as low as two full steps down. I play about 14 alternate tunings, so the strings have to work over quite a range - and I need an electronic tuner too! Anyway, I've really become an Adamas string snob. Sorry, other strings.

Nice volume and bass 29 Nov 2010
By JohnT - Published on Amazon.com

Very pleased trying these strings for the first time. They've provided more volume, sustain and bass than I've had with 4 different sets of strings on my Seagull Folk Cedar. Nice for fingerstyle playing. I really like the sound of the four wound strings (notes really sing out), but the B and high E strings can sound a little tinny if you don't hit them just right. Not as sweet sounding as D'Addario lights. Don't love the sound when strummed, but my guitar has never sounded great when strummed hard--the character of this guitar's smaller body and cedar top.
Going back to D'Addario 23 May 2014

In my opinion these sound dull compared to D'Addario on my Ovation accoustic. Wanted to try as these are recommended along with D'Addario's by Ovation.

Excellent deal on these strings. I've been using Adamas strings for more than 25 years, tried many other brands but always come back to these. Main Guitar: 1980 Ovation Legend Ltd.
