I hear guitars sometimes described as SWEET sounding, the other end of the scale from dry , I suppose.

What about strings ?
To my ear,  bronze strings sound very bright
phos / bronze sound bright

What STRINGS would be considered SWEET sounding ?  (same as mellow, deep , rich , warm ?)

I was afraid this might happen.
You guys have soured me on my sweet post

I remember seeing a chart one time that showed many of the popular strings rated according to brightness, less bright, etc
maybe I need to  search for that again.

Honestly Larry, I believe it's all up to your guitar. For example, I like usin' Elixir pb lights or D'Addario lights, but, I can have exactly the same strings on lets say my C-05, L-01 and LV-04e, you know what? My C-05 has the sweetest sound of the 3, come closely in second place L-01 and then the LV-04e. And they are all older models. Now in sayin' that, with the same strings on my newer LV-03SPe, no comparrison, she just don't have it like the older models. Now it's either, the older wood, different wood or different model that gives the sweeter sound but I doubt it is the strings. Maybe it helps a little more, but I do believe it's the guitar itself.
cheers
