  • 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.

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.
