The legendary Adamas Phosphor Bronze strings, now available again as a Historic Reissue in the original specifications from 1980.

They have long been considered the high-end standard for acoustic guitars.

The special alloy with a higher copper content ensures great sound, enormous flexibility and pronounced sustain. Stably held by a solid brass ball end, they sound much fuller than conventional strings.

The composite gauging makes them ideal for fast playing, but retains the rich, full sound expected from a quality acoustic instrument.

In the Historic Reissue RC versions, a round wire is used as the string core instead of a hexagonal one. This means that the winding is fully in contact with the core wire, which produces a longer sustain and a more balanced sound, richer in overtones.

The lower string tension with the same wire thickness improves the playing feel and makes it enormously comfortable.

The Adamas Historic Reissue series includes strings for (electro)acoustic guitars and basses as well as for mandolins.
