Ok I just bought a set of 80/20 Ernie Ball Earthwoods so I might put them on next time I change strings. The 80/20 Martins which I put on August 20th has lost most if its tone so I probably need to change again pretty soon. Seems like 80/20's lasts much shorter than Phosphor Bronze?

Inspired by this thread, thanks Loefgren, I decided to have a go at changing my strings, they sounded dead and I realized they were 9 months old oooops. I can usually be sure to mess up anything DIY or mechanical so I was expecting problems but it all went very smoothly. I watched Justin's video and 45 minutes  later the strings were installed and guitar tuned. I didn't even managed to break a string when stretching them!

The moral of this post is that it's not that hard to change strings so give it a go.

I can't say enough good things about Power Pins 2.0. Acoustic guitar string changes shouldn't take more that a few minutes with these. They add a bit of volume and a lot of sustain as well. Check them out:
