One of the worst things that can happen is you are in the middle of a jam session and you are killing your guitar solo and BAM one of you strings breaks! You need quality, long lasting strings to keep that from happening. You need Cleartone Acoustic strings. The process of making these strings starts off with premium phosphor bronze construction and then the award winning and patented Cleartone Treatment is next. At only one micron thin, there is no flaking, no slippery feel or dampened tone. All of the strings in a set go through the Cleartone Treatment for a longer life and pure tone.
