D'Addario Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Strings 3-Pack

D'Addario Strings manufactures strings for just about every instrument imaginable, and they've been doing it for over eight generations. Their strings are used on more stages by more professional players than any other, and their packaging is slick—D'Addario uses environmentally friendly string pouches, and intuitive colored ball ends for figuring out which string goes where when you're restringing your guitar. I've been playing guitar for 30 years, and after trying many, many strings on several different guitars, I often find myself coming back to D'Addario strings for their ability to hold tone, pitch, and playability.

Introduced by D'Addario Strings in 1974, phosphor bronze has become synonymous with great, long lasting string tone, and has become the stage and studio choice of top professionals worldwide. This string sets the standard by which all other strings are judged.

I’ve been using D’Addario strings on all my electrics for 20+ years and haven’t used anything else. I traded in my Les Pauls for acoustics now and wouldn’t think of using anything else. I put the nickel bronze acoustic string on my j200 and they make it sound so alive.

Always a good choice

These strings don't work on all my guitars--for some reason they don't sound as good on my Martin D-18--but I love the warmth they bring to my Lowden Sitka / Cocobolo F35. I also loved them on my Taylor 714ce. I find them to offer a rounded, warm sound without too much shimmer or too much complexity. I just wish they lasted 12 months in between string changes!

I love the custom strings! I put it on a epiphone dr-100 (a cheap guitar). It gave the guitar so much life. It sounds very different compared to before the strings. It was very dull before, and after, it was very bright (but also had good bass too). It basically took a guitar lacking brightness and made it more well rounded.

My Go-To Strings

One of my favorite things to do is try new strings. I like hearing what the different allows or coatings being (or take away) from my guitars. I'm always looking for the string that represents my guitars the best.

Time and time again, I end up coming back to D'addario EJ17 strings. They have the tone I hear in my head, the playability I lneed to feel, and the longevity that I expect at a fantastic price. No matter what strings I try out, I end up coming back to the EJ well after a little while. And it always feels like home.

Three times the goodness!

This is a great way to stock up on some great strings. It sounds like a contradiction in terms to say that these strings are warm and bright at the same time, but they are. I also find that the D'ADDARIO Phosphor Bronze strings feel nice under my fingers. Coated strings naturally last longer than the uncoated ones, but if you change tunings at all, you'll change strings more often, as well. Shoreline always has them in stock at a great price, so buy a bunch.
