The D'Addario EJ38 12-String Light Acoustic Guitar Strings blend innovative design with the highest quality materials to achieve a tone that sparkles. D'Addario pioneered the phosphor bronze acoustic guitar string in 1974, and today these precision-wound strings are considered the industry standard for 12-string acoustic guitars. The phosphor bronze alloy wrap wire provides a warm, lush tone with bell-like overtones, while the hexagonal steel core adds stability and improved intonation. These strings provide tonal versatility for all 12-string acoustic playing styles and musical genres.

Premium Phosphor Bronze Alloy for Resonance and Projection

The phosphor bronze alloy used in the EJ38 strings retains flexibility and produces a rich, enveloping tone for hours of play. This material, combined with precision-winding, creates strings that sing with resonant, far-reaching projection ideal for the naturally wider range of 12-string guitars. Musicians will love the blend of warmth, clarity and sustain.

Hexagonal Steel Core for Stability and Intonation

At the heart of the EJ38 strings is a high-carbon steel core with a hexagonal shape, which provides more surface area to grip the windings. This design delivers greater stability under tension, improved intonation up the neck, and a longer lifespan. Players will appreciate how these strings hold tune through energetic strumming and picking.

Color-Coded Ball Ends for Convenient Changes

The EJ38 strings feature color-coded ball ends to make string changes fast and frustration-free. The color-coding allows for quickly identifying the correct string gauge, so musicians can get back to playing as soon as possible. These corrosion-resistant strings arrive factory-fresh and ready to install right out of the packaging.

Complete Tonal Control for All 12-String Styles

With a light .010-.047 gauge, including .010/.010, .014p/.014p, .023w/.008p, .030w/.012p, .039w/.018p and .047w/.027w, the EJ38 strings offer the ideal balance of volume, projection and comfortable playability for most 12-string guitars and playing styles. The set is versatile enough for fingerpicking, strumming and flatpicking in any genre from folk to rock. D'Addario, a trusted brand for musicians worldwide, these high-performance phosphor bronze strings will inspire new creative heights.
