Ernie Ball Acoustic Guitar Slinky Phosphor Bronze 12 String, .009 - .046, 21535alexander marotteNovember 15, 2009Man, these things are like elastic bands! The plus is that you can play for hours and your fingers would not even know it. They are good for beginners who often complain about their fingers hurting. My son is learning to play guitar and he plays longer because his little fingers don't hurt thus he plays more and thus plays better. The down side is that sound wise the "lightness and slinkyness" takes away from the tone.

Plain String

"Plain strings sound the higher pitch notes. Plain string is unwound. Made of specially tempered tin plated high carbon steel, but its shape is round, not hex. Used on electric and acoustic guitars, banjos, mandolins -- not classic guitars. One end has a brass grommet, called a ball, which is secured by a special lock twist. The ball is for attaching the string to an instrument.

Acoustic Guitar - Phosphor Bronze

Wound with an alloy of 92% copper, 7.7% tin, and .3% phosphorus. Its light orange-gold color provides a mellow, ringing sound, with excellent clarity.

Core Wire

Core wire is the center of a wound string. It is of specially tempered high carbon steel. The crosscut end view reveals a shape that is not round, but hex shaped. The points of the hex shape help hold the wrap wire securely in place. Hex core wire is used for the wound strings of both electric and acoustic guitars, banjos, and mandolins - but not classic guitars."
