Brighter, dynamic sound with lots of clarity.

The 2003 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Medium Light Acoustic Strings are designed for musicians seeking a balanced tone and effortless playability. Handcrafted in California using high-quality 80/20 bronze and hex-shaped steel cores, these strings produce a crisp, bright sound with pleasing overtones. The medium light gage offers a versatile tone that works well for most playing styles and acoustic guitars.

80/20 Bronze Alloy for Optimal Tone

Made of 80% copper and 20% zinc, the 80/20 bronze alloy used in these strings provides a rich, ringing tone with shimmering high end. The blend of copper and zinc offers an ideal balance of warmth, clarity and projection. These strings settle in quickly and just get better with age as the bronze oxidizes, mellowing the tone while enhancing the midrange.

Hex-Shaped Steel Cores Reduce Finger Squeak

At the core of each string is a hex-shaped steel wire designed to enhance stability and reduce finger squeak. The shape of the core wire allows the bronze wrap to adhere securely, preventing slippage that can lead to unwanted noises. The steel also helps maintain string tension, allowing for a consistent, resonant tone.

Medium Light Gauge for Versatile Playability

With a gage of .012 to .054, these medium light strings offer a versatile tone and feel that suits most acoustic guitars and playing styles. The balanced tension makes barre chords and bends easy to execute while still providing enough projection for ensemble playing. Whether you prefer a lighter or heavier touch, these strings accommodate a range of dynamics. Included string sizes are .012, .016, .024, .032, .044 and .054

High-Quality Materials and Construction

Earthwood strings are handmade in California using the finest materials under strict quality control standards. The 80/20 bronze is carefully drawn to the proper gage for each string before being wrapped around the steel cores. The result is a set of strings that delivers exceptional tone, feel and longevity.
