Aggressive sound for rhythmic playing!
Dean Markley GoldPhos Alchemy 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 GoldPhos are beautiful-sounding, with a warm and evenly nice rounded tonal projection with a very full-on sound. These work particularly well in my studio settings, as there is not much EQ to add or take away due to the character-landscape type of sound that they offer. They have a very balanced and even feel about them. Again -- with total voicing separation, and their quality of sound is total Inspiration..!!" - Amrit Sond, U.K.

These strings are the s**t! I have used the Markley Blue Steel strings before and liked them a lot...but these even blew them away. I noticed much more higher end AND lower end...it really brought out the sound on my Martin D-15....and the coloring on the coating even makes them look cool too! IMHO they are worth the extra couple of bucks.
i've used elixirs and martins for a long time before I found out about these babies. They may sound a little too bright at first but give them a few weeks to break in. they have a more clear tone than the phospor bronze elixirs, and are very resonant. the only bad thing i might say is that they don't last as long as elixirs, maybe 3/4 as long, but you really need to clean your fretboard and strings to make them last; dont expect any string to hold its sound if you dont upkeep
b twin these and the elixir i pick this, because they have a better tone, tuning, least longer, and the best part, they don't brake..if you clean them with "the string cleaner" before and after you use the guitar they will last you a very long time, i mean least time i changed string was way over a month ago, and the sound like new..definitely the best for studio..great tone..
I played the heck outta these bad boys and they were good to me till the end. Great sound: bright and full. They last forever and are easy on the wallet! Stay in tune well too.
These strings provide bright, punchy, and harp like clarity while keeping it warm (the bronze seems too twangy for me). Works great with my fingerstyle playing on cedar-top guitar. Good tone for 2 to 3 weeks compared to my Elixirs, which usually lasted about 2 months (2 weeks to get the fuzz). DM uses chemical coating (=no mess)! Give it a try if you want something more than a D'Addario or Martin strings.
When I first strung them on my guitar, they were the best sounding strings I have ever used. They had a bright and clean tone that was great for my style of music.It's too bad that the tone only lasted for 2 weeks.
I put them on a Rainsong AWS-1000. I'm in search of the perfect string for this fairly new guitar, so...I'm really picky.They look great but I have some reservations in that they seem overly bright and I get a lot of string squeak.
These strings have the strangest tint to them? Looks like someone took a cigarette lighter and held it to a copper wire (You know that flux look to them). Someone suggested these to me and I took them up on it. These strings are the best I have used versus EXP16s, John Pearse 600s, Elixer Nanos or any other coated or non coated strings. They sound great and last for a long long time. I use them on about 6 acoustic guitars ranging from cheap to very expensive. I even think the strange color to them actually is pretty cool. For the price and sound, and long lasting capability; these are must have strings. On one guitar I tune down a whole step to D, A, C, F, A, D with a solid cedar top and it just booms with sound unplugged or plugged in.
