Alloy 52 is 52% nickel and 48% iron. I love these strings on my L-5. Nice balance of acoustic tone with balanced electric output.

I use the medium gauge on my Epi regent, and it will put you through the wall it is so loud. They work fine through the pick up, but there is no acoustic difference that I can tell compared with bronze strings.

GHS White Bronze strings
I discovered these little beauties over 20 years ago and fell in love with their crisp, clean tone and extended life. Then, suddenly nobody carried them anymore. I actually thought GHS had quit making them. Thanks, Just Strings for bringing that wonderful sound back to my acoustic guitars!

The white bronze I like most through my pick up. Also for glass slide work. They also seem to break in tuning changes. They are still the strings of choice for me.

GHS White Bronze Strings
I use GHS White Bronze strings on my Taylor K-5. I have tried various brands and coatings, but I find that the White Bronze strings outlast anything else on the market. They remain brighter and resonant far longer than any other strings I have tried, and they stay good looking no matter how much I perspire. I have never had one go black and sound dead. They are my strings of choice for heavy playing. I recommend them to any guitarist. Only issue is that they are not usually found in the stores I shop, but Just Strings has solved that problem.

Alloy 52 White Bronze
"White Bronze" is just a name. Actually these strings are an aluminium alloy. Aluminum has outstanding musical tone. Try this test: Compare the tone of an aluminum windchime to a copper or brass one. The aluminum has a pleasent and sustaining ring to it. These strings are no different. For rhythm and lead work they "ring out" longer. Another benefit is they should last for years.

"GHS WHITE BRONZE ACOUSTIC/ELECTRIC guitar strings are wound with "Alloy 52Ô ", a special, magnetically active material, over a hex core that is ideal for all amplified or unamplified acoustic guitars. This non-tarnishing material delivers an extra-brilliant sound with a very long tone life."

GHS Strings

 

"GHS Corporation is one of the world's leading manufacturers of high quality strings for fretted instruments. GHS produces strings for electric, acoustic and classic guitar, electric bass, banjo, mandolin, and a wide array of specialty and ethnic instruments. From Battle Creek, Michigan, USA (where GHS was founded in 1964), fresh-from-the-factory strings and music products are delivered direct to retail stores in the USA and to distributors in over 70 countries around the world.

With over 200 standard sets and 700 single strings, GHS has a set that is right for you.

String Design

The string specialists at GHS bring a craftsman-like approach to each aspect of string design. From material selection to such intricate factors as core-to-cover ratio, winding direction, wire tension and alteration of the wire, GHS designs state-of-the-art strings that enhance the sound quality of all playing styles and instruments. And with ongoing research, GHS develops string innovations that anticipate music trends and instrument modifications worldwide.

String Manufacturing

To build a quality product, state-of-the-art equipment is a necessity. At GHS, all strings are made on machinery designed and built in-house. The GHS design engineers utilize the latest technology to develop computer controlled string making machines that monitor such intricate parameters as the number and type of twists on the ball end, winding speed and direction, core and cover wire tension, cover wire angle and wind length. Modern quality control methods ensure that the final product meets GHS's rigid specifications.

Factory Fresh

GHS knows that you want your strings to be as fresh as the day they were made. All GHS facilities are environmentally regulated to control temperatures and humidity. Sensitive raw materials and bulk products are further wrapped in protective bags for storage. Coiled strings are placed in string packets that, in independent laboratory tests, have proven to offer the optimum protection from humidity. Finally, the GHS swift order shipment (usually within 24 hours of order placement) guarantees that GHS strings arrive in your retail store factory-fresh.

How String Material Affects Tone and Feel

The hardness of common materials used in the cover wire of strings affects both the tone and "feel" of a string. Usually, with all else remaining constant, the harder the material the brighter the string. This relationship shows why stainless steel produces a very bright sound and nickel, a softer material, produces a warmer sound. However, a hard material can be abrasive to both fingers and frets. At GHS, our unique "Alloy 52", used in Progressives and White Bronze strings, is softer and less abrasive than a stainless steel but produces a tone almost as bright. Common cover wire materials include (ranked by order of brightness) stainless steel, Alloy 52, nickel plated steel, pure nickel, and for acoustics, brass and bronze.

The core wire for all strings and all plain steel strings (both acoustic and electric) are made from tin plated Swedish steel."
