Phosphor Bronze was introduced to string making by D'Addario in 1974 and has become synonymous with warm, bright, and well balanced acoustic tone. D'Addario Phosphor Bronze strings are precision wound with corrosion resistant phosphor bronze onto a carefully drawn, hexagonally shaped, high carbon steel core. The result is long lasting, bright sounding tone with excellent intonation.

These strings make my acoustic bass sound warm and a little louder than other strings. Very durable and, if properly maintained, they keep the same sound characteristics for quite some time with no degradation. A little too expensive, but as bassists it's nothing new to us.
