12-16-24w-32-42-53 Length 43 inches. 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. It took several years of trial and error to develop a proprietary string coating that resists tarnish and corrosion without compromising tonal quality. Phosphor Bronze provides nice highs and lows with pleasant subtle overtones. Phosphorous is used to help reduce tarnish and corrosion.

    First coated string played that does not feel coated. Tuning stability right out of packaging. Tone and feel of uncoated sting. Great strings!!

    Slinky bottom...

    Love these. I was a user of another coated string brand for many years, and these are a tad warmer, sweeter, stay in tune better and feel more natural to me. A very worthwhile switch.

    I repair and re-sell broken guitars, and I need strings to sound AND look great until the guitar sells. These Mangan Coated PB strings sound great and look new longer than any I've ever used.
