” I tried coated strings like everyone else; I didn’t like them.
Cleartone are so bright and responsive, I forgot they were coated.
Bend them in good health.”Tommy Emmanuel – Cleartone Endorsee
Coated strings you’ve played in the past use tone killing layers of material. The coating gets in between the winds and inhibit vibration. Instead, Cleartones feature the thinnest coating in the industry. At one micron, they feel and sound like traditional strings but with the added benefit of 3-5x string life. In fact, Cleartone strings were tested to be up to 36% louder than the leading coated string brand according to an independent sound lab.
These Cleartone Acoustic Strings feature the finest phosphour bronze available for the warmest and brightest resonance on acoustic guitars. A unique treatment called EMP coats the entire string with an ultrathin protective film. It’s the thinnest coating ever applied to guitar strings (less than one micron!) and will withstand more abuse from hard strumming than coatings 1000 times thicker! EMP ensures longer string life by protecting strings from corrosion due to skin acidity, salt, and moisture without compromising feel and sound.
Finally, a super-high tension winding over a hex-core is used to maintain tuning consistency throughout performance duration.
The wound strings in this set are made with a Phospor Bronze alloy. Phosphor Bronze contains copper and tin which imparts a warmer tone while retaining brightness and clarity. These are great strings!
