EJ16 Light Acoustic Guitar Strings


D'Addario's most popular acoustic set, EJ16 delivers the ideal balance of volume, projection and comfortable playability.

Phosphor Bronze was introduced to string making by D'Addario in 1974 and has become synonymous with warm, bright, and well balanced acoustic tone.
