Note: I’ve decided to only do string review videos on coated string brands from now on. It’s just too much wasted time and energy promoting strings that don’t last and I have to keep changing within a week!

It’s time for another String Review video! In this video, I’ll show you the differences between coated and non-coated strings as well as 80/20 vs. Phosphor Bronze strings.

I’ve experimented with many strings over the years as seen in my Reviews & Gear Demos playlist here: and I can say without a doubt I’ve played and tested most every acoustic string known to man.

In this video you’ll get the rundown of how several strings I recently used look after various intervals (2 months, 1 month, & 1 week) of playing time. The evidence is in the video and now you can decide for yourself who is indeed the “Reigning Champ.”

Please check out my Amazon link below where you can purchase your very own guitar strings!

So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show. Here’s hoping you learn something new that will help you along your journey toward guitar greatness!

Coated strings are dead when you put them on, and dead when you finally take them off.

Skidrow 71 says:

Does all strings are coated? Or just only E A and D strings? Im confuse though pls help me

Watchman4u says:

Try Electa Coated Aco strings they only come in light. They look like a shinny penny but they are coated & sound great holding tune & I don't really use lite strings. I wish they would do a med gauge but you won't beat the price.
