  • NB1356 Nickel Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings, Medium, 13-56
    +More Info

From my extensive practice as a touring and studio acoustic player, D'Addario Phosphor and Nickel Bronze strings provide greater tuning stability and the longest life of any uncoated string I have used on the road. They also have much less 'squeak' when compared to other uncoated competitors under my fingers. Ideal for studio situations when tone is of paramount importance.

A D’Addario Fretted player since 2008.

Mike Dawes is an English Fingerstyle guitar player known for composing, arranging and performing multiple parts simultaneously on one instrument using unique extended and micro-techniques. His debut record with CandyRat Records gained strong critical acclaim and spawned a variety world tours and singles, notably a viral virtuoso arrangement of "Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye. The lead single on Dawes' second release ERA, an arrangement of "One" by Metallica, went viral with over 30 million hits in its first week of release. Dawes is also lead guitar player for Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues featuring heavily on multiple DVD and PBS releases, notably Spirits...Live which debuted at #2 on the US Billboard chart.
