When it comes to guitar string gauge (the thickness of a guitar string), everyone has their own preferences. With that in mind, guitar players who want a lot of sustain and volume usually go with strings on the heavier side of the scale and it's in these sets that you'll find the 013 gauge. In this section, you'll discover that today's top string brands each offer their own heavier gauge string sets with the 013 gauge, including D'Addario, Ernie Ball and Thomastik. Whether you're an intricate jazz guitarist who loves the feel of a flatwound string or a headbanger who wants their technical skills to ring with power, the set for you is waiting right here.

For those who are new to the guitar, you might be wondering why string gauge matters. Basically, string thickness has a significant impact on the sound and playability of your instrument. Generally, Super Light (and Extra Super Light) strings are easier to bend and hold down but produce less sustain, while Heavy strings produce more volume and sustain but require more finger pressure to fret and bend. Quite often, string sets with the 013 gauge (for the 1st string) are designed to be played in alternate tunings (ideal for metal genres). Need an example? Take a look at the Cleartone Monster Heavy Series Nickel-Plated Drop C Electric Guitar Strings. Made specifically for playing in Drop D, Drop C and Drop C#, these strings last 3-5 times as long as other strings and have all the extra tension you need to play hard and heavy.

While most of the sets in this catalog feature the 013 gauge string for the 1st string (ie: high-E), you'll also find medium sets that contain a 013 gauge for your 2nd string from the bottom (your B-string, in standard tuning). Many rock, blues and jazz guitarists opt for these sets because they're easy to bend but still produce a rich, fat tone for chords. An excellent example of a string set with this 013 gauge string is the LaBella HRS-R Nickel Regular Electric Guitar Strings. Bright and long-lasting, these best-selling strings are very flexible, and many musicians consider them to be the ultimate rock guitar string.

And there are many other sets here with 013 gauge electric guitar strings that deserve a closer look. For some serious punch, turn your attention to the Ernie Ball 2839 Baritone Electric Guitar String Set. Need another choice for playing metal? Try the DR Strings Drop-Down Tuning Mega Heavy Guitar Strings. The simple truth is that this catalog is overflowing with top-rated and best-selling sets, so you'll have no problem finding something to match your playing style and tastes.
