  • What buyers say about DAddario NB1253 Nickel Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings, Light

    They are easy to tune, and hold the tuning well, which is why they are often compared to a soft strum or finger picking.

    I will definitely put them on my resonator because I love the way the nickel bronze sounds, but I probably won't use them on my Breedlove any more.

    I was pleased to try the DAddario nickel bronze strings, they are clearly good quality, but they do come with a vacuum pack, which was a surprise to me.

    I think they are all hype and that they are better strings for less money than the ones you get from a bunch of names.

    The acoustic tone is 80% hands and you have to articulate melody or drive the rhythm to create texture.

    Common Questions


    Is there a ball at the end of the string?


    Yes, they're made for steel string acoustic guitars.


    What light is it and what medium is it?


    The width of the strings is light and medium, while bass strings are harder to hold down.


    Is the 3rd string wound related to the 2nd string wound?


    Yes, these are my favorite strings.


    Do you think these d'addario nickel bronze strings are better than d'addario phosphor bronze?


    The Elixir "Polyweb" strings are coated with a coating which protects the windings of your strings.


    What is the quality like?


    The strings are great and the sound is great on a large body acoustic. I do get the set with the larger 53 6th string as it adds a bit more depth to the low end.
