An integral part of your guitar sound is the strings. After all, the noise you are creating is the sound of your strings vibrating. Dirty and old strings will sound flat and lifeless, may not stay in tune very well and will feel dull to the touch. There are a number of factors that determine how quickly your strings age – how often you play, where you play and the pH balance of your sweat (This isn’t a joke: the finish on Rory Gallagher’s famous Stratocaster was literally eroded away by his unusually acidic sweat). Old strings are more likely to break as well & we all know how irritating it is to break a string ½ way through a song. If you favor a particular brand and gauge, there are advantages to buying strings in bulk – you can save a couple of bucks per set buy buying a 12 pack & we have them from all the top brands, including Ernie Ball Strings, D’Addario Strings and GHS Strings to name just a few. Our string section isn’t just limited to guitar strings, we also have Bass Guitar Strings, Banjo Strings and Mandolin Strings - in fact if you have a stringed instrument, we’ll have strings for it. As with everything we sell, all our strings are supported by our price & satisfaction guarantees and free standard shipping now applies to all orders over $25, including many heavy items.
