abunda_amazon_reviews I haven't used Augustine Blue in 30 years. Back in the day, when Rose Augustine was alive and ran the company, she used to give these to me for free. That being said, they were okay, certainly better than okay since they were free. At that point, their only competitor was D'Aaddario Pro Arte EJ46's, which were usually only a little better. Today, I can say this is the worst set of strings I've ever used. The fifth string is completely dead, makes an odd *thunk* sound when struck, and fades instantaneously. The basses are all different lengths, with the 6th string being the shortest. The trebles are no better. Untuneable. They're so unevenly cut that you can feel bumps along the length of 3, 2 and 1. I'm really disappointed. The next day, I removed them and tossed them in the trash. Total waste of $10. Who knows, perhaps these are not the genuine article.

Volume is definitely stronger than my D'Addario composite strings. With regards to pitch sensitivity, I struggled to keep intonation stable as I went higher on the fretboard with the treble strings when using the D'Addario composite strings and the Augustine Golds. Now that I have tried the Augustine Blue Label I think I managed to find that perfect match for my favorite guitar and all of my intonation issues have gone away. I only have two complaints about the product: - The G string feels a little dead compared to the other strings (a common issue with nearly all strings in my opinion) - The D string that was shipped with my second pack of Augustines was cut a way too short which created additional difficulty in stringing the guitar. There was literally nothing left to trim when I was done stringing the D string. My other Augustine Gold strings did not have this problem so I suspect this was a one-time issue.
