Bronze wound strings 1 Year, 10 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hello, fellow enthusiasts of the alto guitar! I'm new here, and wondering if any of you have an opinion about bronze wound basses. I am using them primarily to give myself a visual reference point, by using standard silver basses on strings 4-6, and bronze (Aranjuez classic gold) on 7-11. That way it's easy to see where the diapasons begin.

So far the sound is ok. I could not find the individual basses in higher tension for the bronze, and they are a bit boomy rather than punchy. I think I will also try the reverse with strings 4-6 as bronze, since I'd be able to use whatever I like on 7-11.

I am anxious to hear anyone's opinion on this. On a side note, I have treasured all of the great advice I've already read on this forum, and am very pleased to finally be a part of it. I've played 6 string for 23 years, alto for 3 months. These last three months have been quite a challenge, but they've rekindled my passion for the instrument.
