I've found that the non-phosphor bronze strings are harder to find, but I like them better than the phosphor bronze strings, or at least the way phosphor strings were years ago when I used to use them. I found that the phosphor strings were extra-bright when brand new, which is not necessary since new strings are bright anyway -- perhaps *too* bright. Then the phosphors seemed to go dead almost immediately, at least with my string-deadening sweat chemistry.
