Low tention, great sustain

By Marc Scordato

from Boynton Beach FL

Comments about DR Strings Sunbeam Phosphor Bronze Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

As advertised these are round core , low tention strings with great sustain. Most strings I've tried range from good to very good. These strings however are superb. Easy on the fingers and very pure and clean sounding. Some strings will brighten or warm the tone of your guitar. These strings will enhance the natural sound of your guitar. The 12's are so easy to fret I might try 13's next time out. I am happy my local Guitar Center now stocks these strings, they really sound terrific!

HORRIBLE!!!!

By Rass

from Murrieta, CA

Comments about DR Strings Sunbeam Phosphor Bronze Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I really dislike these strings. I play a Mitchell 100-S dreadnought acoustic, these strings are way to light on my guitar and if u strum any note past 6, they buzz and it sounds horrible.

    Comments about DR Strings Sunbeam Phosphor Bronze Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I bought one set based on other reviews, as an alternative to the Elixir Nanowebs that seemed to work best on my Australian Cole Clark.
    Sticking with the same gauges, I wasn't that fond of them for a day or so, but now with about 4 hours of play, they sound fine to me.
    I'm generally not a fan of Elixir's, although they do last long.... and I usually use Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze on my other acoustics but for this guitar, they worked well.
    These DR Sunbreams, to me bring out more of the natural & woody sound of this guitar ( Spruce top, Rosewood B/S), and are easy to play, ( not as slick as Elixir's but more so than other phosphor bronze I've tried.)
    Only time will tell how long they'll last, but if it's more than a month, I'll probably order them again.

      Comments about DR Strings Sunbeam Phosphor Bronze Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      I've now put these strings on my ; Cole Clark Angel, and Breedlove Oregon Concert, since November 2016, and have been impressed enough to not use anything else.
      I have preferred their ; clear, natural ( subjective to me) tone, as compared to the Elixir, and Ernie Ball aluminum bronze I had previously used.
      More importantly, I like the soft and supple ( easily bendable and playable), feel they have right after stringing them , and haven't experienced the stiffness I've felt from other phosphor strings - although some of that may be due to my playing more often.
      They have also lasted longer than my previous, non coated strings, in both tone and corrosion, and to me have rivaled Elixr's in longevity.... Iv'e gone 2 months between string changes.
      Re: tuning peg unwinding mentioned by other reviewers ; I have simply bent and curled the end of the string at the tuning peg and have not experienced problems with going out of tune.
      They have also held their tuning well !
      On the two guitars mentioned, they've worked great , but can't comment on their use on other guitars.

        Comments about DR Strings Sunbeam Phosphor Bronze Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I have a 2003 Taylor that I have used Daddario EXP, John Pearse and Elixir HD strings on in the past. All of them sounded good but my guitar has really come alive with the DR Sunbeams. I have only had them on a couple of weeks so I don't know how their longevity will be compared to the coated EXP and Elixir strings.
