Hi friend,I have fender squire sa105 guitar, can I use fender dual coated custom light 80/20 strings for my guitar ?
Amazing content! You deserve more subs! I recommend you google SMZeus!!! It’s a great tool to have when your trying to grow your social media or promote your videos!!
Wow mukhang maganda yan string na yan boss, balak ko din mag re string to my yamaha, any recomendation string,,cheers
Well done, but for acoustics I use strings - twisted nylon bronze strings E, A, D, G and B and thin E spiked - metal. Fendr doesn't fit me!
They are comfortable, soft and have more harmonics.
Great presentation Vincent 👏👏👏
I'm sorry that I couldn't make it The Tudor Rise on Tuesday, hopefully next time I will be able to visit.
I would be most grateful if you could keep me informed of the schedule there, or anything else musical that's happening please 😀👍🎸
Strings....as an experiment last week I put a set of Rev Willy 7's on my electric guitar. They're the thinnest I've ever tried and are used by Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. The full set go:
7, 9, 11, 20, 30, 38
They don't sound as thin as you might expect...in fact they are rather bright.
I usually would use 8s or 9s.
I am also hunting for a set where the fattest string is less than 38 as I'm looking to make a hybrid set.
Catch you later Vincent ⭐
Does String Gauge on Acoustic Make a Difference? 10's vs. 13's:
I love Supro
EXCELLENT review. Thank you very much.
I think the next acoustic set that i will try will be the phosphors... Thanks Alex
which of them do you recommend for a beginner? i really need some help HAHAHA
big job!!! Great!
The Phosphors sound richer and fuller, like more folk or country, the 80/20's sound more cutting and brighter, more kinda bluegrass...
So, it depends: If you play purely acoustic, even with other instruments, have a dark or budget guitar, want a bright sound or stuff, you might wanna try the 80/20's, at the other side, if you have a brighter guitar, want a warmer tone or play plugged, the phosphors... Greetings man. Thanks for making the vid.
Unrelated but do you have an arrangement of that version of comfortably numb?
80/20 - for bass sounding guitar. Phosphor is for tiny guitars as for me.
the 80/20 sound to tinny in my o
How often do I switch out my strings if they are 80/20 bronze?
Sometimes 80/20 is better and sometimes p.b... Hard choice for me
PB all day long.over 80/20.
I’m a phosphor guy but dude that guitar sounds amazing with 80/20 like absolutely amazing!
Looking at the comments, it just goes to show that both of these sets of strings sounded fantastic and I I think the only thing that divides them Is personal preference in the end.
They both sound very good, naturally the 80/20 is way brighter and the phosphor warmer and fuller. I have an 80/20 set now and i think the next i will put on will be a phosphor. And of course is all in the taste of each person, if you play purely acoustic, no amplification, and you need to cut through, use 80/20. If you don't need that much cut and you need a warmer sound, get the phosphor. Also the instrument's voice is key in deciding which strings you will use. For dark instruments the 80/20's can do miracles, and for brighter guitars, you can pretty much balance it out with the phosphor strings. Great vid man, thank you.
It's been my experience after over 30+ years of suffering from what I call Obsessive-Compulsive Hyper-Critical Guitar String-Blaming Disorder (OCHCGSBD) that it indeed comes down to Phosphor/Bronze and 80/20. In general, Phosphor/Bronze strings can be considered the "Great Equalizers". On a "modest" guitar (less than $1,000) the Phosphor/Bronze can work wonders at helping the instrument sound pleasing. They have a generic sound that can cover over a cheaper guitar's imperfections. Also, it is very true that they last longer than 80/20s. It's when you get up into the high-end of the acoustic guitar world that the 80/20's begin to make more sense. The 80/20s, short-lived though they are, are the strings that make a Martin, a Gibson, an old Westerly Guild F50r, sound completely unlike each other; and completely like themselves. In short, if you want to hear what your guitar really sounds like, use 80/20s.
Sounds like you have an easier time with the phosphor
Excellent version of yesterday!
They both sound pretty similar when they're brand new. The big difference between 80/20 bronze and phosphor bronze is in how they age. 80/20 bronze maintains that brighter new string sound significantly longer than phosphor bronze. Especially if the strings are coated. Phosphor bronze loses it's brightness very quickly, within like a day or two of putting them on for me. Some people like the warmer sound of well broken-in guitar strings, but I personally prefer the 80/20 bronze for the same reason I just mentioned. Phosphor bronze's "warmth", as most would call it, just sounds like dead strings to me. Like they're not quite resonating as they should be. But obviously different people have different musical tastes, so if you like that duller, warmer sound, go with the phosphor bronze.
Sounds like your using chorus on the fingerpicking?
80/20 sound better but don't last nearly as long as phosphor bronze. 80/20 strings brightness quickly dulls after only a few weeks. While phosphor bronze will stay fresh sounding for months.
Give a like for those who like 80/20
And dislike for those who like phosphor
you can't do this on different guitars. Even if they're the same model, difference in their tone could overwhelm the difference due to the strings
thats a nice guitar it can handle both
The different in the sound is´nt big. But I like the golden color of 80/20 bronze.
Wow 80/20 is so much nicer. Thanks for the vid.
When will these people learn how to lift off from one chord to another without that painful screeching along the strings. Simple= play chord, lift, move, down and place.
Phospor bronze are Pretty loud love it...!
your video is most valuable and informative, thank you for this video.
Also depends on the brand. I have been using phosphorus bronze for years. My dealer was out of them so I am trying the 80/20s of the same brand. So far for my style of playing they're fine and they are coated. Only time will tell. I replaced Martin titanium $40 strings. Expensive experience. Not worth it for me.
Phosphor bronze had better warm and bass when they new but i found phosphor bronze only last for a month and the sound will get dull especialy on low E string
More slippery on the 18/20 ? You mean more sticky
I just wonder why nobody reviews the middle ground string - 85/15 bronze. They are basically the perfect blend between these two!
Are Elixirs also a phosphorus bronze alloy?
Elijah Wood got cancer!?
One note at a time goes to 80 20. Many strings goes to phos bron. You can send me a couple sets of each.
I like the 80/20s but their midrange is lacking... I've tried using 3rd and 4th string phosphor and 5th and 6th 80/20 because of their depth, I may try that again. My guitar is very rich with cocobolo and italian so it benefits
I prefer the sound of 80/20 on my guitar, but prefer the feel of the phosphor bronze. Guitar is Yamaha FG460
I have a cheap laminated mohagony baby taylor. Could the 80/20 works for that? Is the tone gonna be same.
Hi, which one is good 80/20 or P bronze elixir? for yamaha fgx800c dreadnought size
Love your style
That last song sounded like you were in an open tuning and gave me a little bit of a Goo Goo Dolls vibe. 🧐
Great playing as always though! It’s always hard for me to tell where you end and the guitar begins. You’re definitely one instrument. Many props!
I use elixirs on all my guitars; acoustics and electrics. Every once in awhile I go back to trying other brands, but they just aren't the same!
4:06 You sound great even when you're not fretting
Love the playing as always Jay
Which acoustic pickup you use in you OM Martin? Thanks
sir i have a tele fender japan 90s model i watched your vid you haved a lot tele can you give an advce what string guage recommended on tele
Great review, man! I just go here, play your reviews while workin' on Excel files and inventories. By the way, you haven't mentioned the tuning for this string after playing it with lots of bends and strumming. Do they go out of tune after a few hours of playing? Thanks!
I use these exact same strings and I love em. They were recommended by Taylor to use with my 414ce-R. Great and lasting-tone.
I have tried these but the PB ones, and thus far they have been my favorite strings on my guitar. I'm still trying out different strings to see which one the guitar likes best, but man, those Elixrs sounded amazing for 4 months and didn't start tarnishing until around that point. Other "coated" or "treated" strings from other places only lasted a month, month and a half tops, and didn't sound as good to me on my guitar. Average use is about 1.5 hours a day, 7 days a week. So, I see exactly why they cost more than other brands :)
Thanks Jay!! Everytime I watch you I'm inspired to play, and try to play better.
I put Exilir Bronze on my cedar acoustic months ago and it's still very bright.
I'm not sure if I'm dumb or something but I preferred the sound on the 1 month old clip over the 1 week old clip.
