The D'Addario Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar String Set
This phosphor bronze set of strings from D'Addario is available in three gauges: extra light, light, and medium. The extra-light set provides a low tension string, ideal for vintage instruments and increased playability. The light gauge is D'adarios most popular set and is a staple for versatility and tone. The medium offers increased volume and projection as well as the ability to drop tune due to the increased tension.
The original string
Pioneered in 1974 and still revered today, Phosphor Bronze has become synonymous with warm, well-balanced acoustic tone. D'Addario Phosphor Bronze strings are precision wound with corrosion-resistant phosphor bronze onto a carefully drawn, hexagonally shaped, high carbon steel core. The result is long-lasting, bright sounding tone with excellent intonation.
Wound to perfection
String winding equipment is designed and built by D'Addario's engineering team, guaranteeing a production range of 500,000 to 700,000 strings per day. Digitally controlled string winding machines ensure productivity, accuracy and consistency.
Six sides of stability
Precision drawn hexagonal core was pioneered by D'Addario. This innovation allows the wrap wire to grip the core for superior dimensional stability, enhanced durability, and precise intonation.15 | 16 | 17
