Red Strings

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!

    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.

        Red Medium Strings

        By Jimmie Gregg

        from Texas

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

        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

        Not very good.

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

        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.
