Does the guitar affects ? and also wanted to know that many of them are saying that when we are not playing the guitar untune (overnight) it but some refuses saying that the trust rod will imbalance so what is the correct one should l untune ? , For " Yamaha FS80C " which strings are better !!

Bhai Kadience ka guitar kon konsa acha rahega and the price is 6000 one
Well damn, those 13s sound dry and muffled af.
No sustain or clarity.
10s sound waaaaaay better
With your style or song choice the playabilty of the 10 outways the 12's.The sustain of the 12's is not required,go with the ease of playing and less tension on the neck.
Thanks I needed new strings wanted to move down a gauge wanted to hear the sound of the 10 first
13 is easier and better to play on a dread. However, you'll need to setup lower. But, if you don't play regularly enough, your fingers' going to hurt. 12 is reasonable for irregular play.
I think the 13s is more punchy. But the 10, i like the 10s. Thanks for this video, dude. 10s will also help your acoustic's bridge to have less tension than the 13s so it's safer than 13s, i guess.
10s sound brighter such as u can hear more of the g b and high e, the 13s are more even and more bass. I use 11s 80 20 bronze polyweb. The coated strings get rid of that scratching from the pick and they get rid of that bright ring sound if you know what I mean. If u listed for it you'll hear it. Its overly ringy, I hate that.
The 10s (they also make 9s in 85/15 Bronze etc) make your Acoustic feel like an Electric & the sound is more percussive too. 10s might work in a Bluegrass setting cause you know how much faster you can really play.
10s sound the best to me, better clarity
Bruh, you will not damage a halfway decent guitar by going from 13s to 10s lol. They are literally made to be able to handle it. Have you ever adjusted a truss rod? Its pretty easy.
I’m basically a new guitar player. I want to practice more but the strings kinda start to make my hands hurt after awhile.
I have heavier strings and I’ve been thinking about trying lighter strings. I have been afraid it would make my guitar sound tingly or shallow sounding.
Thank you for taking the time to make this video! I listened with headphones on. I hear a slight difference but not enough to make me not want to try lighter strings!
Thank you so very much for making this video! It really helped!
You went to a ton of work to put this together! Kudos! I didn't notice much difference other than the lower tones stood out more on the 13's. But then, I didn't have the volume on the video cranked, either. I'm playing some open tunings and getting buzzing with the 12's I have, so will try 13's. Based on your video, I think it will sound fine. Thanks! (Epiphone EJ-160E John Lennon edition)
To me the 13s -- warmer, thicker. The10s -- brighter , thinner. Both useful
Hey, after a year would you rather the .10 or the .13??
Only when you really observe it than, yes gauge 13 is crispier and better than 10 gauge. Gauge 10 rings a little bit longer and it ruins the clarity of the tones.
Thanks chief for your useful effort. Cheers from Indonesia.
10s all day.
I don't understand people who think there's no sound difference in string thickness. I'm a newer guitarist and even I can hear the drastic differences in sound.
If you want more volume and sustain, use heavier strings.
If you want better tone with a little less volume and sustain, use lighter strings.
I say this after using 13s on my dreadnoughts for over 15 years. I've owned Santa Cruz's, Larrivee's, Martins, Eastman, Taylors, and a few others. I currently own a Reimagined HD28 (love it) and I broke it in using mediums - and it needed it. It being a new guitar when I bought it, it lacked tone, volume, and sustain. After two years of playing it, it's opened so much, it sounds well over 5 years old. When strung with 13s, it - is - loud - and it has sustain for days. Too much of anything isn't good as this was distorting and overdriving the tone. I cringed at the idea of going down a gauge but I eventually told myself, why not try it and see what happens? Using 12s, its a better sounding guitar now than it was before. It still has plenty of sustain and the volume dropped just a hair, but the tone has improved tremendously.
Now for dreadnoughts, I will never use anything less than 12s because a top that big, you need tension to vibrate it. And you're not gonna get that dreadnought sound using anything less. All builders usually recommend 13s but state 12s are acceptable. And imo - they 100% are.
You have to find that balance between tone vs sustain and volume.
If you go heavier, you get more volume and sustain.
If you go lighter, you'll get better tone at a cost of sustain and volume. If you go too light, its pointless because your guitar will sound too thin - and Im talking about dreadnoughts specifically.
Ok, I'm going to buy some 10's now. I don't need my acoustic to be loud, but I want it to sound a little brighter.
This is videos are excellent and they take a lot of time; so much appreciated. There are other factors to consider when comparing gauges of strings. I feel the lighter strings will get knocked out of tune more readily than the heavier gauge strings. You already mentioned the difference in volume, but drilling down just in that factor alone means that it requires more pressure to play a higher gauge string and that’s harder on your fingers, yeah at the same time because the string is latter you don’t have to hit it hard with your right hand! Since all tone really comes from human fingers, the use of various fingerpicks and plectrums is also going to have an effect. I’m a big fan of heavy gauge strings, but after 50 years plus of plain mediums and heavies the arthritis in my hand is so bad that I basically can’t play professionally anymore. I bring this up because youngsters think they’re invincible, at least I thought I was invincible. So try to factor in your long-term play ability as well. Musicians are both artists and craftspersons because we need to use our body as our tool just like any carpenter or wheel right with use. In the meantime, keep rocking
By far, Pete Townshend is my favourite guitarist of all time. So...nice shirt!
very good idea tips bro thank you so much👍
Thank you for your demonstration I found it very informative. I did like the Martins the best again thanks!
This is a great video. The timestamps in the description allows me to quickly switch for one string demo to another. Very cool.
I also learned that putting too much tension (heavier strings) might cause issues with body and/or neck. I've used Elixir 13/56 on my Taylor but I'm considering going to 12/53 after watching this video.
The real question is what is the song you're playing. What a pleasure to listen to. Great comparison. Imma experiment.
Just wanted to say I enjoy watching your videos regularly thank you for them!
2:11 You're just yapping on and on. I'm switching off. I do wish people would just get on with things.
I liked the nickel bronze best followed by the phosphor bronze.
Another great review.
So enjoyed your playing.
great video, very informative
Good video. My conclusion is that there is very little to choose between the strings, any strings, some difference but very subtle. My choice is largely based on feel, for that reason I prefer a heavier gauge, and for duration of life. For instance Ernie Ball Earthwoods are probably my favourites but I find they go off and dull down quite quickly. I like D’addarios, not quite as much as the EBs, but I find they sound consistent for longer.
Snapped my OG Martin strings tuning to open A so I went with the Retros 😎
10 minutes talking😂
I've been watching a lot of videos recently about strings because I think it's time to change mine. A bit of backstory: the guitar i'm playing is about 30 years old and the last time it was played (before I started) was about 12 years ago. That is also the last time this guitar had brand new strings. So, it sat in the closet, unplayed for 10 years until about 4 months ago when I began playing. I think it's time to replace the strings, and I have spare strings, but they are also from 12 years ago. July 20th 2009 to be exact (it has the manufacture date on the box). They're phosphor bronze strings from the brand "First Act" and after looking them over, there was no rust or deterioration of any kind, they've just been sitting in the little paper packets in the box in a ziploc bag for 12 years. Are they still ok to use?
Short clips edited would be easier to compare but great video anyway. Thank you.
D'Addario Extra Lights sounded very nice and bright... Thank you!
You talk too much i have to fast forward almost everything
What kind of acoustic string comparison video does not include Thomastik Infeld John Pearse Folk strings or the Infeld Plectrum strings?
Concerning the comments on flat wound strings interaction with air ... isn't it the body of the guitar that is responsible for generating and amplifying the sound loud enough that you can hear it? Without the body wouldn't the strings sound just as useless and quiet as an unplugged electric guitar? I strongly suspect the difference in tone has less to do with interaction with air and more to do with the way the string vibrates as a result of it's construction, which would in turn change how the body sounds. This is because the body isn't amplifying the air around the string. The top is using the energy of the string and creating its own vibrations, which is what you hear after the body amplifies it. You don't directly hear the strings. You hear the guitar when it reacts to what the strings are doing. If air is a factor then it is an extremely small factor; certainly not a big enough factor to account for the huge difference you hear in a flat wound string. Or am I missing something?
I have been playing and changing my strings for many years, and have used a few different ways to measure the length of the strings and wind them, but this seems to be the best I have seen. Thank You so much!
This is great advice! Thanks! By the way, at the beginning of the video, what song was that being played?
Thank you for the help. High 5.
Thanks. I like the way you lock the strings. You can't blame any de-tuning on strings slipping.
Excellent! Thank you!
I always snip the strings before tightening lest they scratch the head stock, the neck, or sting the back of my hand! Awesome video, really informative.
totally helpful. Thank you very much.
thanks for the tutorial very helpful
very nice. i was always told to leave tension on the neck when removing strings but you didn't do that. Have I been mislead? My 12 string has a bow where the space from fretboard to string is much larger at the body. Does the neck need adjustment or will it correct itself once all strings are tuned? Thanks for the great video. david
I've just set-up and re-strung a 12 string using this method and it's so quick and easy! Brillaint! :D
First time restringing my 12 acoustic , thanks so much for your method
I play a 12 and nothing but a 12. Thanks for the tutorial. Great work!
Thank you so much for sharing with us your method, it is been a great help. Cheers from Madrid, Spain!
Truly excellent video - a really helpful guide. Many thanks.
You video was super helpful. I never knew the high G was placed in the middle of the strings or as you, stated on the top treble side of the guitar.
Thx Dave....You're a Doll ;-)
Mate been stringing my guitars all my life and you have educated me with your method of threading the string and wrapping it then bend it back over, *fantastic* thanks
