D'Addario Phopshor Bronze Acoustic Guitar strings are acclaimed worldwide for their great, long-lasting tone. Phosphor Bronze was introduced to string making by D'Addario in 1974 and has become synonymous with warm acoustic tone.
D'addario pays more to have their ball ends precision turned from solid brass stock. The edges have radii that prevent the ball end from cutting into wooden bridges or guitar tops. Each string is twisted to perfection right down to the three neatly wrapped "lock twists." And those lock twists help keep their plain steel strings from unraveling or breaking prematurely. Each and every spool of precision drawn high carbon steel wire D'addario uses goes through three quality control tests before it becomes a set of D'addario strings. Pioneering innovative string design has been a D'Addario family tradition for nine generations. Most guitar players don't realize that the inner core wire in ALL D'Addario steel strings is made from carefully drawn, hexagonally shaped, high carbon steel wire. The six "edges" of the core wire bite into the softer wrap wire, securing it all along its length. Environmental Package.
Gauges: .012; .016; .024; .032; .042; .053

Comments about D'addario Ej16 Light Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

"Daddario's are used by many professionals such as Tim Reynolds, Barenaked Ladies (at least they used to) and quite a few Emo bands. I used to only enjoy the sound of Martin SP mediums on my DR-1 but now I quite enjoy the playability and tone of the Daddario's. I'd reccomend highly trying them out especially if you're using elixirs there is a noticeable tone difference. My only complaint is that they don't last very long especially for the price. [...]
