What do you call mid level? Washburn,Alvarez.Yamaha,Epiphone, Cheap Martin 500-800 dollars ,Ibanez
Try Dadarrio E26 Phospher Bronze !They are very warm and start at .011 1st string.AJ
I second that, the EJ26's are great strings, been using them on my Carvin AC275 for 6 years now and love them!
They are the only strings i will use on a acoustic Guitar.Have them on a stratacoustic as well!
