12 String Sets for Acoustic Guitar

10% back in Gear Card Rewards**

Twelve string acoustic guitars offer a truly distinct sound to the music world. To make sure your 12 string sounds its best, it’s important to have a great set of guitar strings ready to go at any given moment. With the wide variety of options available here, you’re sure to find the perfect set of strings to match your playing style.

It’s important to change your guitar strings fairly regularly. This will help maintain a crisp sound when you strum your instrument. One of the major benefits of buying a complete set of strings over individual strings is that it’s easy to do a complete re-string of your instrument. You just pop open a package and the strings are all there, ready to go. The process is relatively quick and you’ll be ready to play again in no time.

As one would expect, different strings are made from different materials, each of which bring their own distinct tone to the 12 string guitar. A string made of 80/20 bronze will sound different than a string made of phosphor bronze. Taking the time to experiment with these different materials will help you get the most out of you instrument.

The same can be said of different string gauges. Lighter gauged strings will deliver a crisp, bright tone, while strings with a heavy gauge will offer rich sustain and bite. Medium gauged strings can be considered a blend between the two ends of the spectrum. Different playing styles can benefit from different gauges of string, so taking the time to find the ones that work best for you will go a long way in enhancing your sound. Depending on the type of strings you pick up, your guitar can produce a variety of great tones. Whether you’re a casual player or a serious musician traveling from gig to gig, make sure your 12-string sounds its best with a set of new guitar strings.
