D'Addario pioneered the use of 80/20 Bronze (sometimes referred to as brass) for use on acoustic guitars. 80/20 Bronze provides crisp, extra-bright tone along with deep lows and tons of volume. These attributes make them ideal for recording.
Gauges: .012; .016; .024; .032; .042; .053

If you like 80/20 then you likely can't do better


I have come to prefer 80/20 strings over the more popular 92/8 Phosphor Bronze strings. While 92/8 sound "richer," there is a certain clarity I prefer with 80/20 strings. I was using Martin MSP-3100 and find the EJ11 Daddario very subtly clearer with a slightly more defined bass E string response. The Martin MSP-3100 are good strings and the bass is .54 vs Daddario .53, which may explain the difference. I play fingerstyle, often fairly complex tunes, and find with a 000 size Martin that the EJ11 gives a very even response and good clarity. I am now experimenting with the Daddario EXP11. And hey, stings are nicely priced from Sam Ash so why look further?

Lasts a long time and the quality is consistent for half the price of strings that are half as good!
