I have been saying on here for a long time- I play fingerstyle and want warmer tone on my RainSong I don't put bronze on it at all. Martin retro or other good quality nickel strings take the metallic sizzle right out. I still need to try the D'addario NB's on the Shorty but if those strings don't perform better than what I stated above than I'm right back to monel or nickel. YMMV

RainSong makes bright guitars but they are very good at capturing string character, 80/20 did not work for me either.
