D’Addario Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings For a Warm, Balanced Sound
History of Quality and Sound
The first metal guitar strings were invented in the 1920s and revealed to the world in the 1930s. Ever since then, guitarists have not looked back. These guitar strings are made from a Phosphor Bronze alloy that produce a warm balanced sound when properly strung. Each strum and pluck of the Phosphor Bronze string pulls the most sensitive, expressive tone that brings out the very best in guitars.
String Tension 101
Modern music has become so sub-divided and fragmented that there is no longer one turn-key string solution for every playing style or desired sound. At one point in time, there were no standardized string gauges, but John D’Addario Sr. changed all that in 1939 with the introduction of light, medium and heavy gauges for acoustic instruments.
