Vibe Strings Light Phosphor Bronze/Steel Acoustic Guitar Strings (Discontinued)
Though not as well known as D’Addarios, Elixirs, or Ernie Balls, Vibe Strings are starting to gain traction among acoustic guitarists.
Vibe strings are made in smaller batches than their competitors which, while this does make them a bit more expensive, helps to increase their quality control. Each string in the pack is also vacuum sealed, which will help them last longer inside of the package.
Something to be aware of with these strings is that they’re more comparable to a custom light set. The difference isn’t going to be huge, but it will be noticeable. This also means that while they’ll be great for fingerstyle, they may not be the best fit for strummers.
- Gauge: Light (.011 to .050)
- Material: Phosphor Bronze
- Coated: No
Judging by the user reviews, these strings seem to be a bit brighter than other phosphor bronze strings.
Part of this could be due to the thinner gauge used, but the possibility exists that these strings are just particularly bright. This isn’t a bad thing, it’s just something to be aware of.
