Acoustic warmth is the pinnacle of your acoustic guitar voice. Without it, your guitar will sound tinny and soulless. 80/20 bronze has 80% copper. Phosphor bronze strings contain 90% copper and because of this, has a warmer, more pleasing sound. At RED Brand Strings, they asked the question, what would 99% copper sound like. The result is RED Brand Strings, the first and only brand of copper-bronze acoustic guitar strings. With the highest copper content of any string brand, RED Brand gives acoustic guitars precise articulation, louder sound, greater projection and a warmer, richer tone.

Comments about Red Strings Copper Bronze 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings Light:
I bought these Red brand strings for a cedar-topped Takamine 12 string that sounded a little too "tinny" for my taste. I wanted to compliment the warmth of the cedar. I had previously used Red brand strings on a Martin 6 string that I gig with on a regular basis. The strings seemed to come to life a bit slower than others, however, they seem to retain their sound almost as long as coated strings. Mine were full of fret nicks but still sounded good after two months of playing. You can read reviews of people buying these strings, putting them on a guitar and then removing them because they don't like the sound. My experience is that these strings develop their sound over the period of the first two weeks (depending on your frequency of playing), so be patient. The 12 string now has a fuller, warmer sound. GC doesn't carry these in the local Austin stores so I ordered them online and got them in just a few days, picking them up at the store.
