I'll tell you everything I know about guitar strings (no need to get comfortable...)
1. I used D'addario strings in my acoustic when I first got it. Then I switched to CFMartin 80/20s or Phosphor bronze and they are MUCH better. Major difference in tone, and they last longer too. Both kinds are more expensive (like $8 per set or so, as opposed to $5 for the D'addarios) with the phosphor bronze being a buck or two more expensive than the 80/20s. I don't hear much difference between the two, both are good, I just get whichever the store has when I happen to be in there.
2. I got some free D'addarios some time back for my electrics, and once again, did not like them. I have been using primarily Fender super-bullets since then, which I will admit is largely because they make string changes much easier on the Schecter I have been playing (the bullet goes all the way up into the guitar body so it doesn't get caught on anything inside or outside the guitar, but slides right out when it is time to change the strings).
That probably helps you not at all, since you were looking for something other than D'addarios and all my review says is that I don't like D'addarios. Sorry about that, wish I knew more.
Mama Mama many worlds I've come since I first left home.
