    EJ16 is D'Addario's most popular set of light gauge strings for acoustic guitar. Since D'Addario introduced Phosphor Bronze guitar strings in 1974, they have been synonymous with warm and well-balanced acoustic tone.

    Pioneered in 1974 and still revered today, Phosphor Bronze has become synonymous with warm, well-balanced acoustic tone. D'Addario Phosphor Bronze strings are precision wound with corrosion-resistant phosphor bronze onto a carefully drawn, hexagonally shaped, high carbon steel core. The result is long-lasting, bright sounding tone with excellent intonation.

    String Winding Technology

    String winding equipment is designed and built by D'Addario's engineering team, guaranteeing a production range of 500,000 to 700,000 strings per day. Digitally-controlled string winding machines ensure productivity, accuracy, and consistency.

    Hex Core Construction

    Precision drawn hexagonal core was pioneered by D'Addario. This innovation allows the wrap wire to grip the core for superior dimensional stability, enhanced durability, and precise intonation.

      These are great sounding strings - ideally suited to jumbo or larger sized guitars.I used them on an archtop acoustic with f-hole and they still provided good tone and sustain, so would definitely buy again. They were a reasonable price from Rich Tone tpo with swift delivery.
