OVERVIEW

Silky feel, brilliant tone, and incredible string life.

Gauges: 11-15-24-32-42-52

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

      Comments about Cleartone Phosphor-Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      I've been playing for almost 50 years (you'd think I'd be good by now...) and have tried every string out there in the search for great sound and long life. Other "coated" strings just didn't do it for me. Didn't like the tone and the coating always flaked. I went back to my regular untreated strings. Then I tried these Cleartones...out of the package they sounded great and felt great! treating the outter wire before it's wound is genius. Now, the big payoff is a set will last me TWO MONTHS!!!! When I wasn't playing out I used to change them every two weeks, when I'm gigging...two nights and I change them. Now...these babies just keep holding their own!!! As it stands I probably won't be changing brands for a long long time. 10/10

      These sound a little better than garbage crashing around in an alley. Do not waste your money on these. If you want good strings, buy Elixirs. I put these on my Martin, and they sounded horrible! Day 1: Garbage on a guitar: Day 12: Just garbage. Don't buy.

      buyer beware, Elixirs much better

      Comments about Cleartone Phosphor-Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      I've been using Elixir strings beacuse my hands sweat a lot, and I don't like changing strings all the time. I have a big guitar collection, so when I pickup a guitar, I want the strings to be decent. So I had an acoustic setup with these strings. I might have played it the first three days, and they were fine. I hung up the guitar. two weeks later I picked up the guitar and the G,B, and E strings were 100% rust. Totally unplayable. I couldn't believe it. I'm going back to Elixirs.

      Comments about Cleartone Phosphor-Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      I've used these one several different acoustics during the past year and still think they're the best you can get. Worth the price if you play enough and change strings often and the tone is amazing. They make my cheap guitars sound ten times better and my expensive ones sound unbelievable. Plus they don't flake off like elixers. They last longer and sound better too.

      Comments about Cleartone Phosphor-Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      For me these are a long-term bargain because I could easily get through an entire year on 5 sets of these strings, as opposed to at least 20 sets of a regular string. Three times the price to last four times as long = good value, accoring to my math anyway.I also like the convenience of not having to evaluate and most likely change strings every time I'm going to play an acoustic gig, which is at least twice a month. In my life that adds intangible value to the equation.Oh yeah, and one other minor detail - these are also the very nicest strings I've ever had my fingers on. Probably the best bending I've ever done on an acoustic guitar, and unlike some strings that make my fingers feel shredded I could play these until 3 AM.

      Very disapointed

      Comments about Cleartone Phosphor-Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      I started hearing about Cleartone strings on various blogs. People were raving about them so I ordered a set. Well maybe it's my ears, or my guitar, but they sound terrible to me. Very bright metallic sounding. No warmth, no subtlety no tone. Yuk. Quality may be OK, sound is not.

      these do not live up to Price

      By jibfreshie

      Comments about Cleartone Phosphor-Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      At the recommendation of my guitar manufacturer, Larrivee, I tried these strings out. Much to my disappointment, these strings don't live up to price or expectations. I was using snake oil brands strings, that have a great clear, crisp poppy tone. These Cleartones sound dull, and unresponsive. They look great, made well, and the guitar stays in tune no problems, but the tone stinks. I'm going back to the SOB's

      Nice, bright sound & long lasting

      Comments about Cleartone Phosphor-Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      Though they're a little too bright for my Martin, they are a nice sounding string that last twice as long as the Martin SPs (IMO). WAY too pricey vs comparable strings, but they're worth a try.
