OVERVIEW

A special deal on silky feel, brilliant tone, and incredible string life.

Gauges: 12-16-25-33-43-53

Cleartone Acoustic Guitar Strings feature the finest phosphor bronze available for the warmest and brightest resonance on acoustic guitars. A unique treatment called EMP coats the entire string with an ultrathin protective film.

It's the thinnest coating ever applied to guitar strings (less than one micron) and will withstand more abuse from hard strumming than coatings 1000 times thicker. EMP ensures longer string life by protecting strings from corrosion due to skin acidity, salt, and moisture without compromising feel and sound.

Super-high tension winding over a hex-core is used to maintain tuning consistency throughout performance duration.

FEATURES
  • Thinnest coating ever
  • Dramatically increases string life
  • Protects strings from corrosion
  • Withstands hard strumming
  • American made

This is high-tech you don't have to understand to appreciate. Order this 3-pack today.

Disappointing

I had high hopes for these strings after reading several reviews around the web. I play fast, intricate fingerstyle and the Elixir nano's that I've been using are just too slippery for the accuracy required. These Cleartones sound great at first, and they are very "grabby" so I was pleased... for about two days. They may have an awesome coating that protects agains corrosion, but corrosion is not the main factor that makes strings go dead quickly - it's the buildup of gunk between the windings. Since there's nothing to prevent that, they go dead just as fast as ordinary uncoated strings. Yes, you can take them off and wash them with ammonia and water, but you could do that with regular, inexpensive strings. In my opinion Cleartones are a huge ripoff for what you get. Now what to do? Elixir's ring like a bell even after weeks of very heavy use, and they're fine if you're just strumming a few chords, but that slipperiness is a real problem. Maybe the solution is to buy regular strings in bulk, wash them once or twice and then change them. I've tried every brand of coated string, and Elixir is the only one that doesn't go dead on me in short order.

Some guitars like 'em, some don't

Over the years, I've come to the conclusion that certain guitars just seem to like certain strings. My acoustics have all seemed to have a preference for Martin's Clapton's Choice strings, and they seemed to last longer, tone-wise, than other non-coated strings. I had tried Elixir Polywebs years back and didn't care for them; they felt coated and sounded dull to me. Then I bought a Taylor 210, that came equipped with Elixir Nanowebs and loved them. The Nanowebs didn't feel coated, had a great, broad sound spectrum with a nice full bottom end, and retained a clarity and quality of tone for far much longer than any strings I'd used.
I'd read some good things about the Cleartone strings, and took advantage of a sale at MF to try a few sets out on some of my guitars.
My Fender Sonoran, Epi Hummingbird Artist, Takamine 340TRF, and old '73 Japanese Delta all responded very well to the Cleartones. They even sounded good through Fender's (IMO) sub-par electronics when I amplified the Sonoran! I'd tried a myriad of strings on that guitar, but plugged in, I'd just never been able to get a good tone, and had all but quit playing it amplified until I tried these Cleartones on it.
The Epi, Delta and Takamine are all straight acoustics, and the Cleartone strings sound as good or better than Martin's Claptons or the Elixir Nanowebs, with the Takamine seemming to take a real shine to them. Finger picking or beating it with a flat pick, the Takamine just rings.
They didn't fare as well on my Taylor, however. All the other guitars are spuce/mahogony, while the Taylor is spruce/rosewood. The 200 series are rosewood laminates (plywood, to purists), but my 210 has a wonderful, complex tone with a nice, full bottom end. I lose that bottom end with the Cleartones, and while it's bright and articulate, it's not quite the sound I want from this guitar. So it'll be back to Elixirs for the Taylor's next string change
I do think you should experiment with strings to find the best fit for your guitar and the way you play, but 4 out of 5 of my guitars agree these are great strings. They don't feel coated, and they'll give your guitar a nice clear, full, and articulate tone for a good long while.
