La Bella Phos/Bronze 12 - 52
By chance I tried these and was extremely surprised. Excellent gauges and quite comfortable for the fretting hand. Quite a bight and loud sounding string. I noticed that for finger picking work they really respond to dynamics.
They definitely open up the next day after putting them on and last quite a while without tone loss or going "dead".
These would have to be right up there with the best. Some other Phos/Bronze makes sound quite dead next to these. From what the manufacturer has released, this is the set that the famous Don McLean actually uses; so you are joining company with Donovan and Willy Nelson in that regard. A really top quality string and really a lot better than some of the other big names we all know.

La Bella Acoustic Steel String

"LaBella's acoustic guitar sets are comprised of perfectly balanced strings and are available in a choice of many different gauges. Accommodating today's acoustic players and their instruments, these varied set designs present many options for stringing. Only the finest American-made materials are used -- high quality plain steel and superior bronze alloys. Handcrafted by skilled technicians, LaBella guarantees every string that leaves the factory.

Over the centuries, the problem of prolonging the life of metal strings has plagued both players and string makers. Today, some manufacturers have discovered a quick fix method to prevent oxidation from occuring. They coat the metal strings with a polymer or synthetic material. This process stifles the wound string's sound production and does not guarantee a longer life. Any surface treatment deadens the natural transmitting powers of the string and dampens the high overtones associated with a good wound acoustic guitar string.

 

Phosphor Bronze Wound

Strings made of phosphor bronze are extremely popular with today's acoustic guitarists. These Phosphor Bronze Wound sets offer a brighter sound and longer string life than any other bronze string on the market. Exclusively developed for LaBella, a unique metal compound is used for the phosphor bronze alloy."
