Above all, these strings are made for fingerpicking on acoustic guitar, which I do not play, so voila ...
Well, it's cool strings, because they are nice enough finger, because suddenly they gentleness, and not saturated with either a violent game stops. The upper strings in particular are slightly thicker than metal, and its a little more felt less slamming. Used on classic, it does not provide many improvements in terms of volume (a bit anyway), but it changes the sound.

I would not say it's between acoustic and classical, in fact, the disappointing side these strings, plus the fact that they are expensive is that they lack character, what they are neutral, they n have neither folk patch, or the resonance of nylon, do not be fooled. That said, used on archtop acoustic (an old harmony in this case), this side can appeal soft and neutral, but will default if you like the sound of this very traditional bronze strings. It would be a try with a well-built archtop or gypsy, with its very fine scratches rather suddenly made solid wood table and rather fine, well to reveal the wood of the guitar without imposing the ropes. Or with a scraper fragile, light and very vibrant. I tried with an old German parlor, all in solid rosewood, it was not too bad, but the pitch is shorter than normal, and I thought it lacked tension on the strings and the volume to react guitar. Finally, something fun, these strings can all be amplified with p90, thus probably also with a humbucker, but with little gain, slightly less than bronze strings. On an old gibson es 125, it sounds, but it loses the jazz. A try maybe with a good preamp, or a more recent micro with more potato. The lower set of John Pearse strings similar hybrids do not meet magnet pickups, but the treble yes.
