Nice Warm Smooth Tone
February 17, 2017
I have a very early Taylor 810 that has a HUGE presence, tried almost everything, and had settled on Phosphor Bronze, and still was getting complaints from jammers that the guitar was too much. I tried the Vintage Bronze strings and was really pleased by the much more tasteful sound that my Taylor produced, they work well on my other guitars as well, producing a smooth warm tone that has excellent sustain and volume without being overwhelming. I play or practice daily, under this relatively heavy use they last at least a week if you wash your hands first and wipe down the strings before putting the guitar away. I love the sound and playability, they are not too expensive either.
Pros:Warm vintage sound, smooth and open. easy to play.
Cons:If you don't keep your hands clean and don't wipe down the strings when you put the guitar away, they are good only for 3-4 days.
