What strings are you using on your D-28? Phosphor Bronze? Need a suggestion from other finger stylist if you don't mind

I play finger style a bit and mostly flat pick. I've had my custom shop D28 since '92 and of all the strings I've tried,I much prefer John Pearse.

I play fingerstyle without picks and recently strung my Martin with D'Addario EXP-19 PB Bluegrass strings. I like some zing on the high strings and some crispness on the bass strings...

d'addario EJ160's for years and I recently switched to cleartone 12's and love them. They seem to stay fresh for about a month if I do not leave my guitar in the case after playing heavily (that kills any strings with my perspiration).

I flatpick 90% and changing between tortex and nylon picks changes my tone more than strings honestly

D'Addario EJ-19. Though called "bluegrass gauge" (i.e., 12-56), they're super versatile for fingerpicking too.
