Forged to withstand intensive use.

KQXS-1260, C# X-Xxtra Heavy NPS Electric Gauge .012, .016, .022P, .038, .048, .060.

Feeling a heavy gauge string under your fingertips gives you extra power while cutting through with an unmistakable growl and chunk. These tonal flavors are a necessity for hard hitting, drop tuned riffs and passion driven playing. Sinister Strings are seasoned by a patented process between minus 320F and plus 350F for 24-36 hours. The repetitive Hot/Cold Tempering process causes the metal to expand and contract, which reduces the microcracks that cause tonal loss and premature breakage. The result is a Long-Life Guitar String.

Give these a try. Order today.

    Comments about Kerly Music Sinister Strings NPS C# Tune Extra Heavy Electric Guitar Strings:

    Since most people would consider a .48 as heavy for a low E I expected this set to work great for Baritone and Drop A on my 24 3/4 scale 6 string, which isn't quite the case.
    The tension at B tuning works perfectly fine for 5 out of 6 strings, unfortunately the "G" string is completely dead and sounds very flat tuned to a D. If they just had a 24/25 wound string instead of a 22 it would be a great baritone set for a normal 6 string. The .022 is just barely thick enough to handle the E it was made for, at a D it sounds utterly terrible and pretty much unusable clean thankfully it's hard to notice through heavy distortion.
    I hate to give anything from Kerly less than 5 stars because they make THE BEST strings but this is somewhat of a confused set. My opinion based off these if they just made 13-17-24W/25W-39-49-62 it would truly be perfect for the tuning I'm going for but honestly just a change in that 3rd string alone would make ALL the difference. Get to it Kerly!
    I guess I'll have to go find my own D for now.
