12 Sring versus 6 string

Is there a 12 string acoustic guitar made that has the mellow tone of a 6 string?I have both types,and find I can play a 12 string easier than the 6 string.The 6 string is much more expensive than the 12 string.I know,it depends on the type of material used,etc.The six is a new Zager Zad 90 Pro,the 12 is an Epiphone D12,both nice instruments.

frank"' i have owned a few 12s and still have one it seems to be the nature of the beast , i myself stick to 6s unless the tune i am going to play (try) calls for 12s but that being said ,, La Bella makes baritone strings for 12s you may try these and see what it does for you..
