Hey Whats up everyone this is Jeremy and Invite to the string face-off where today the Elixir 80/20s will be pitted versus the Elixir Phosphor Bronze Acoustic guitar strings. Both sets will be Custom-made Lights for their gauge sizes and Ill be using my Taylor 812ce for both sets. Let me clarify what the name of these guitar strings in fact mean due to the fact that it was something I myself had to research study.

The 80/20 bronze name is a bit misleading due to the fact that these strings, which are 80% copper and 20% zinc, are in really brass. Brass by definition is a mix of copper and zinc.

Bronze is an alloy also consisting of copper, however instead of zinc it has tin. Elixir Phosphor Bronze acoustic guitar strings are a copper alloy with approximately 8% tin and a percentage of Phosphorous.

The wire that lives beneath the wrap wire is made of steel in case you were questioning.

These strings are covered with Elixir Nano web product. Now, These are various from polyweb product due to the fact that nano webbing is thinner. This finishing avoids the squeaks when sliding up and down the string. And it just typically makes the stings feel slick.

I mic ‘d all of these examples the exact very same way with a stereo spaced set of mictek c5 cardioid condenser mics pointed at the 12th fret of the guitar. I did not include any EQ or compression however I did adjust the volume of each clip so that they are close to volume relative to each other. As we understand, louder things sound better so I didn’t want that to influence the actual attributes of the timbre of the strings if I had one clip a little louder than the other.
