Phosphor Bronze wound strings were introduced in the early Seventies and have become the most popular acoustic string. Phosphor bronze wire is made from approximately 92% copper, 7% zinc and 1% phosphorous. Phosphor Bronze provides nice highs and lows, as well as pleasant subtle overtones. Phosphorous is used to help reduce tarnish and corrosion.

    Phosphor Bronze

    Posted by David Newborn on 8th Aug 2019

    There is something about these strings no matter acoustic or electric. The tone they produce is phenomenal. I like played with 13's for a long time but I started using the 11.5's and they are a way more versitle than what I was using. If you are always searching for a better tone I promise your search will end here as did mine 6+ years ago when I discovered this brand.

    V. Good strings

    Posted by Michael Hart on 14th Nov 2016

    This is my first time trying these. I've also tried the regular light and medium light. Overall, the half-pipe strings are like a semi-light set of strings.
    The 0.53 is the same as a light E bass string, but the A (0.43) - is a tad heavier than the regular light A (0.42). Then the rest of the strings (D,G,B,E) are all 1 to .5 less than regular light. They still sparkle and have given my old Gurian guitar a different feel, achieving some good bottom end and a tad easier to finger pick on the top. I'm enjoying these half-pipe strings!
