It's a real likelihood that stringed instruments are the most popular in the world. Every region, every culture and every musical style has at least one instrument in this family - and in many cases (Latin music comes to mind), there are multiple kinds. As many stringed instruments as there are, one thing that they all have in common is the need for a great set of strings to sound their best. There are plenty of varieties to choose from, and if it's uncoated strings that you're looking for, you're in the right place.
There's no substitute for an uncoated string when it comes to authenticity. Without a coating on the outside to affect their vibration, these strings deliver completely unbridled, natural tone. They also give you the complete feel of the string, whether you like the coarseness of a roundwound or the smoother touch of a flatwound. Uncoated strings are the undisputed champions for guitarists and other stringed instrument players in search of classic feel and sound.
You would be hard-pressed to find a pair of instruments more widely-played than the guitar and bass guitar, so it's no surprise that they make up the lion's share of uncoated strings available here. That doesn't mean other instruments are left out in the cold, though. If you play the banjo, mandolin, ukulele or even an exotic instrument like the bouzouki, you can find strings for it here. There are solid selections of folk and Latin instrument strings as well.
One of the best parts of playing an instrument is choice. Whether that means choosing a unique instrument to learn, or simply choosing a unique set of strings for the ultra-popular guitar, it doesn't matter. What matters is that this section's range of options is sure to satisfy, with an assortment of uncoated strings ready to take on any musical genre or playing style.
