OVERVIEW

Brings the true tone out of your guitar's top.

Gauges: 12-16-25-32-42-54.

Dean Markley Alchemy GoldBronze strings use pre-tuned mandolin wire cores and Diamond Drawn outer wraps electroplated with the exclusive MC394K Bright-Coat compound, an aerospace-technology derived substance with oustanding tonal response and durability.

"The GoldBronze are bright & powerful and they work particularly well in my live performances as the melody and chordal work are there right up front with the bass presence just nice, round & supportive - they also look great on the instrument, all the gold just adds a very nice cosmetic and contemporary touch and feel to strings (when was the last time you heard that said about strings?)...once again the voice separation and tonal balance is just SUPERB and I was hearing harmonic overtones and other hidden stuff coming out of Guitar that I didn't even know existed..!!" - Amrit Sond, U.K.

FEATURES
  • GoldBronze - 85% copper, 15% zinc
  • Diamond Drawn outer wraps
  • Pre-tuned core wire
  • Electroplated tinned mandolin wire core

Definitely the best coated string being made.

By John MacKinnon

from Canada

Comments about Dean Markley 2023 Alchemy GoldBronze Custom Light Acoustic Strings:

I have used the Alchemy strings for over 2 years now and have yet to find a coated string that even comes close to this one for tone and durability.

I have never broken a string, using the Custom Light strings. Great tone, and palyability. The average player should easily get 3-400 hours of playing out of a set of strings, so if you play 10 hours a week, that's over 7 months. If you are practicing 3 hours a day, 7 days a week, which is a lot, that's about about 4 months easily. The strings never corrode, and keep their tone very well. I would never go back to Elixir strings, there is simply no comparison if you like a bright sound without the deadening effect of normal coating methods.

Comments about Dean Markley 2023 Alchemy GoldBronze Custom Light Acoustic Strings:

Simply put,I've tried them all, and I liked them so much that I bought 10 more sets! They sound great and the tone really does last!Also, the Custom lights give a great balanced and loud tone especially with the GoldBronze which is supposedly a bit brighter that the PhosBronze. Here's the unexpected bonus. I can be a very hard strummer. I liked Elixirs, but those of you who are like me know that they are one of the easiest strings to break! That gets very pricey and inconvenient. I have NEVER broken an Alchemy string, and I've gone through 8 sets which typically last me about 3-6 months each! I don't know what makes them so durable, but these are awesome! I'm ordering 10 set of the PhosBrone next. Hopefully they'll be just as good or better.

All Around Great Strings

By HonestThievesBassist

from Southern NH

Comments about Dean Markley 2023 Alchemy GoldBronze Custom Light Acoustic Strings:

I bought these off a clearance rack . I went back to my dorm, put them on my guitar, and was absolutely BLOWN AWAY. These strings have brilliant note definition and are amazingly well balanced. Pure, bright, and perfect for my style of music. From Dave Matthews to Skip James to the Beatles to James Taylor, these strings have more than done justice to the music I I perform. The also have the added bonus of a beautiful gold coating that really adds to the appearance of the guitar.For reference, I went back and bought all 8 other sets that were on the clearance rack - these are now the only strings I will use.

favorite so far

By imbricated

Comments about Dean Markley 2023 Alchemy GoldBronze Custom Light Acoustic Strings:

I was trying a number of different brands for my McIlroy AC30. These have been the best so far: great volume, balance and richness of sound. They were recommended to me and I wasn't aware they were a coated string; they sure don't sound like it. Now I know why they still sound good after a month of daily playing.

Alchemy Shmalchemy

By Tommy-XUGp-

from washington dc

Comments about Dean Markley 2023 Alchemy GoldBronze Custom Light Acoustic Strings:

I bought these strings at a local music shop hoping to find an alternative to Elixir Acoustic Stings. I play my acoustic many hours a day and end up having to change strings about once a week. I wanted to find coated strings that would last longer and sound as grand. These strings have a great feel to them. And the color is quite interesting. But if I were to judge my decision on that, then I would be foolish. The tone is down right dreadful. I do admit they last longer than many other brands but I ended up taking them off because I couldn't stand the tone. So all in all, great color, great feel, and long lasting, but they just sound like poo. I think the manufacturers missed the mark. For all you die hard acoustic fans, stick to Elixirs. It?s the same price and they are just better. Unless you really fancy yellow strings, that is.

Great buy!

By Anonymous

Comments about Dean Markley 2023 Alchemy GoldBronze Custom Light Acoustic Strings:

I love these strings. They sound bright, have a long life, don't break, and look great. I'd highly recommend them for anyone looking for a brighter tone. They do settle down after the first few hours of play and can give an almost electric sound when plucking strings near the bridge.
