Searched Red Strings Copper Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings ight in Reviews


They do what they say they do.

Comments They add lows. I was skeptical, but they definitely add low end. I threw a set on my Taylor 414ce Tasmanian Ltd and they noticeably expanded the bass response.

Liked about it Very full sounding with strong low mids and a nice bass rumble. Neat looking strings, too. Reddish/coppery color that stands out. They don't have a standout feel, one way or the other, so I guess that's good. I'm seeing that Martin players are loving these strings. If you're looking for a boomy, woofy sound with a lot of bass, not much treble and a quick decay, these are for you.

Didn't like While they added a lot of bass to my Taylor, they also seemed to suck all the highs out, which shocked me. I then put a set of them on an Ibanez EW20ASENT we have in stock and it seemed to wake that guitar up. I've saved the worst for last: The one really big drawback with these strings is that since they have such a high copper content, they tarnish and go dead very quickly, and being that they're so bassy already, once they do go bad the whole guitar sounds dead as a doornail. For the price, that can be hard to swallow. I really didn't like them on my Taylor, and was impressed with them on the Ibanez until they went dead not even a week later.

All that said, they're a purpose-built string that will probably work wonders on some guitars, but they definitely aren't the ultimate string for every guitar. For that reason, I'm giving them an average rating.

Overall satisfaction:
