The 2069 Earthwoods appeared on our recommended list for Nylon / Classical Guitar Strings from June 2017 until July 2019.

They made it back onto the list in August 2020 where they have remained since.

Ernie Ball’s 2069 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Folk nylon guitar strings are plated with 80/20 bronze.

The tone they produce is similar to La Bella strings.

Ernie Ball strings are available in just about any guitar store in the country, so you’ll be able to find these strings just about anywhere.

The set is a bit controversial, with some reviewers stating that when compared to more traditional nylon strings this set doesn’t have the projection required for classical guitar. This very well may be the case, but at the same time they do offer a good value to beginners looking for widely available strings that they can easily change.

Like the La Bella’s these strings do produce a unique tone. They’re a great choice for folk guitar, and their (relative) lack of projection pairs very well with singers.
