Product Reviews for D'Addario Acoustic Guitar Phosphor Bronze Environmental 12 String Lite, .010 - .047, EJ38

D'Addario Acoustic Guitar Phosphor Bronze Environmental 12 String Lite, .010 - .047, EJ385Steve AdamsApril 28, 2010After trying many brands and types, I've settled on D'Addario Phosphor Bronze for my Seagull S12+ cedar top 12 string. Top four reasons I like these strings: 1. They sound great. Nice balanced tone. Not too bright, not too 'boomy', not at all muddy. 2. I play pretty hard and I used to break other brands of strings all too frequently. These D'Addarios *never* break on me. 3. I find they settle in quick and then hold tuning much better than others I've tried. 4. These last way longer than others. I continue to enjoy the tone after weeks of steady playing where others just go dead after one or two nights. I've tried 80/20s, coated, etc, in many brands, but keep coming back to the D'Addario Phosphor Bronze because they sound great and stay alive for a long time. This is especially nice on the 12-string because changing out dead strings every other day is a PITA and a drain on the wallet.

"In 1974, D'Addario pioneered the use of phosphor bronze wire for the winding of acoustic guitar strings. D'Addario phosphor bronze strings were an instant and enduring success. A more costly alloy, phosphor bronze was widely known as a durable, long-lasting material used in machine bushings and bearings. After months of searching, a wire company was located that agreed to make sample wires for testing on music strings. The results made history. D'Addario phosphor bronze strings are bright sounding and retain their brilliance longer than other bronze and brass alloys.

Round wound phosphors are available in 6 different gauges for 6 string guitar, 3 gauges for 12 string, and 4 gauges in the Flat Tops series. Flat Tops are round wound phosphor bronze strings that are lightly polished to reduce finger noise and fret wear, and are an excellent choice for noise-fee recording. Phosphor Bronze strings are available in both environmental and standard packaging."
