Product Description


About This Box of 3 String Sets

D'Addario EJ Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings offer a warm, well balanced acoustic tone, with bright intonation and a "fret-friendly" round wound feel that made them D'Addario's most popular acoustic guitar strings. D'Addario received worldwide acclaim in 1974 for introducing Phosphor Bronze to string making, giving their strings such superb, long-lasting tone.

For even longer lasting tone, try D'Addario EXP Coated Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings.

All D'Addario strings are precisely wound around a hexagonally shaped high-carbon-steel core wire by computer-controlled machines guaranteeing clear intonation, rock-solid fundamentals, and incomparable consistency in every string. The tight core tension produced through this rigorous quality-controlled process results in a harmonically rich, longer-lasting string. Anti-Rust 80/20 Nanoweb Coated Acoustic Guitar Strings. These strings provide the sound of traditional strings, but with a Nanoweb coating so thin you can barely tell it's there!

Strings for travel guitar

Purchased these to try out on my Yamaha APXT2 travel guitar. So far I'm very happy with the tone and tuning stability ....much better than the factory strings that came on it. Delivery was quick and the tracking worked well Cheers Peter

I could not believe how quick my order was delivered and so was enjoying 6 strings on my 6 string sooner than expected and sounds great

Great strings, great price!

Is there anything better then putting a fresh set of D'Addarios on your favourite guitar? Maybe the love of a good woman (or a bad one), but that's about it.

Artist guitars are always the cheapest and the delivery is always prompt. I don't purchase string anywhere else. Next time I will be buying the bulk pack of ten sets. A great deal and a time saver. Ken McBeath

Good quality strings well priced at Artist. The fat low E string sounds nice and beefy if that's what you like.
