I can't remember the exact name, but its Yamaha strings. Yamaha phosphor bronze medium's, rust proof. That's all I know.

That's not what your mother said.

That's right. You aint the only one working with cows.


I doubt that Yamaha makes their own strings. The fact is, there are only a few companies who make strings. Most of them get rebranded for PRS, Yamaha, Takamine and others. Try some D'Addario acoustic strings. Chances are, that's who made the ones used by Yamaha.
Right i get what you mean...I have heared D'Addarios are good..maybe ill try them... ive looked online can get Yamaha string but then its the what size int it...Im having a blonde moment lmao x
wait a few days. even coated strings need a break in period, and most strings sound bloody awful at first. wish i could help, but i haven't found a coated string i like.

btw, yamaha does make their own strings. personally i hate 'em, and i'm not sure they sell them.
