OVERVIEW

Bronze acoustic guitar strings with crisp, bold sounds ideal for recording.

The D'Addario EJ13 acoustic guitar strings are an 80/20 Bronze version of D'Addario's popular EJ26 Phosphor Bronze Custom Light guitar strings.

80/20 Bronze, commonly referred to as brass, is the original acoustic string alloy selected by John D'Addario Sr. and John D'Angelico in the 1930s. 80/20 Bronze acoustic guitar strings are popular for recording due to their crisp, bold, and projecting tone and appeal to many traditionalists for their historical significance, unparalleled longevity, and vastly superior sound.

    Comments about D'Addario Daddario EJ13 80/20 Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I tend to experiment with different brands, especially when finding the right set for a new acoustic, so along with D'Addario, over the years I've tried Martin, John Pearse, Elixir, Ernie Ball, DR, Dunlop, Newtone, GHS, La Bella, Mangun, Dean Markley, Adamas, Thomastik, Ken Smith, Wyres and Cleartone. There might be one or two I'm forgetting.

    I've tried most every material offered, whether phosphor bronze, 80/20 bronze, nickel, silk and steel, silk and bronze, bronzed steel and the latest 'monel', 'nickel bronze', 'aluminum bronze' and New York steel.

    From time to time over the years I've given the EJ13s a try. I've put them on dreadnoughts, 000s, a J-45 and a Martin M size (0000).

    As far as breakage and the like, they seem to be a quality string. Performance wise, regardless of which guitar, they've been very, very consistent. Unfortunately, in my experience they've consistently under-performed.

    With the EJ13s (and their phosphor EJ26 brothers) I find the bass string consistently dull with a weak, short sustain. Fretted at the 12th fret, it is the weakest low E of just about any brand I've tried.

    My experience with the rest of the set is similar. They're quieter, less dynamic and less lively than most any other brand I've used. Most every time I've strung up a guitar with the EJ13s I've found myself thinking "How does D'Addario keep their reputation when making this string without improvement over so many years?

    With most strings, if I don't care for the performance I tend to think "These simply don't like this particular guitar." But since these have been so consistent on different instruments and over such a long span. I plan to never try them again.

    You may hear them differently on your guitar.

      Comments about D'Addario Daddario EJ13 80/20 Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      Went with lighter 11-52 set than original 12-53 on my Ibanez PF28 to see the difference. Didn't notice any discernable difference in sound. But love the sound of these on my guitar more than any I have tried so far. Tried the phosphorus strings last time and the sound was not as bright and clear.

        Comments about D'Addario Daddario EJ13 80/20 Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I had tried using Nanowebs, due to their publicity, and was very disappointed after the G string quickly wore out on 2 different guitars. I put these D'Addario's back on both guitars and they sound fantastic. I could not ask for a better sound!

            Comments about D'Addario Daddario EJ13 80/20 Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

            I would recommend these stings to any acustic player who plays more than a couple of nights a week
            really like these strings, I've been playing for over 40 years and these strings hold up for more than a couple of nights ringing out loud and clear. I play as a soloest as well as in a couple of bands and i don't think theres a much better string out there.

            Ive tried lots of strings. I was hooked on martin custom lights bronze till I tried these. These are loud and clear. I play strickly fingerstyle blues.
