OVERVIEW

Add some warmth to your sound.

This is the first brand of copper/bronze acoustic guitar strings. These strings contain the highest copper content of any acoustic guitar string-more than 80/20, more than phosphor bronze. Red Strings provide precise articulation, louder sound, great projection, and a warmer richer tone from the moment you tune them up. There hasn't been a significant new material introduced for acoustic guitar strings in 35 years... until now!

FEATURES

Try the strings with the largest copper content.

    Comments about Red Strings Copper Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings - Medium:

    If you want bright, snappy tone or extremely long life, then these strings are not for you. If you have a fine guitar, a good ear, and want the richest, fattest tone, then try these! Two warnings: 1) Do not stretch them when you put them on; just tune them up to pitch. Agressive stretching seems to make them go dead; 2) They're not long-life strings - the sound can flatten out after 6-8 weeks, depending on use. However, I have never heard my Gibson J-45 sound as great as with these medium gauge "Red" strings. If you haven't lost all your high-frequency hearing from loud music (leading to a craving for high, crackly sounds), and you appreciate rich tone, then by all means try them.

      Comments about Red Strings Copper Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings - Medium:

      These strings are dry and slow. They do not hold a tuning well or even sound particularly good once tuned. I'm guessing the extra % of copper is making the strings more soft as the G string buzzes like hell. Yes, the action is noticeably different. There's nothing wrong with the Taylor 414-rce I put them on, it's the strings. At this price point I definitely got taken, given the product I received.

          Like other who have tried these strings I found the D string to be off. Musician's Friend sent a replacement set which was just the same. Couldn't play them because the D was so different. It sounded OK at about C# then went dead when tuned to pitch. Also the string set seemed dicey to tune. Tone was masculine and edgy. The company hasn't figured out how to tension the windings I suspect.

          The low E and A and the B and high E are fine BUT the D was dull and the G was dead. I took them off and well never buy RED strings again.

          I just put a set of Red Medium Strings on my Taylor. So far so good. The sound is amazing. After all the years of playing Bluegrass and never straying from Martin Strings, I gave it a whirl and very impressed. But, guess we'll know more after the first show.
          Not very cheap

          I bought these strings just to try them out. I'm always trying new strings on my D-28. These were just bad strings. The G was dead from as soon as I put them on. The A string broke on the first gig, in the first set. The A string! Nearly impossible to break. I should just stick to my Martin SP's, I always come back to them.
