Pros: Very crisp and clean sounding Very good tuning stability after a couple of days The strings themselves feel quite good and sturdy Cons: Does get untuned quite often for the first couple of days but does stop and hold its tone for a while after those first days Conclusion: Very stable and well built strings. The string size on these strings are ideal for anyone and any type of music. Overall really happy with this purchase so far. Perfect for people who don't change strings often.
