ChanteyMatt: If you like Phosphor Bronze, and want to keep your guitar in DADGAD permanently, try GHS True Mediums. These have the two unwound strings and the low E in what is normally medium gauge, and the A, D, and G the same as a light gauge set. The original idea was to create a set in which all six strings would be under about the same tension - in normal sets, either medium or light, there's more tension on the A, D, and G. But if you put a set of these in DADGAD, it's very similiar to a set of lights in standard tuning.
