Can someone tell me the difference between phosphor bronze and 80/20 bronze strings as far as sound and durability?

Durability is about the same. It's hard to prove that either is more or less durable. Each person plays differently, and sometimes you just get lemons or gems.

As for sound, 80/20 bronze string have always seemed brighter to me.
