Product Reviews for D'Addario Acoustic Guitar Phosphor Bronze Environmental Resophonic, .016 - .056, EJ42

D'Addario Acoustic Guitar Phosphor Bronze Environmental Resophonic, .016 - .056, EJ423Tom FrankeJuly 24, 2011These are usually considered the most popular reso strings, so I tried them on my Tut Taylor Virginian squareneck in standard GBDGBD tuning. I found them too bright for the all maple TTV. They also seemed harder to get and keep in tune than the SIT Stainless I had been using. They did have good volume, but that is not something I especially seek. There were no quality problems with the strings, and JustStrings service was excellent--just not the strings for me.

"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."
