OVERVIEW

Don't pay too much for strings!

Gauge .013, Plain Steel - Acoustic or Electric

These are the same guitar strings Rogue uses in prepackaged retail sets. What's the difference? We package 12 strings of the same gauge in airtight vinyl bags with a packet of silica gel to protect against unwanted moisture, so they last longer than typical string sets. We also pack these bulk strings in big, loose coils to avoid compressing or stretching the windings, so they sound better than tightly coiled strings. Rogue Strings are made for us exclusively by a famous manufacturer, employing the finest materials and the latest manufacturing methods.

I can make whole sets of strings with my preferred sizes at home for my guitar collection. I learned this from my old guitar repairman. I can make custom sets for friends who buy a guitar and install them for free as a courtesy. The price is incredibly low! Keep them in mailing tubes with the size marked! You'll be happy you did!

Good value, one minor flaw

As for the "producer" who wrote "coUld havE a stronger tone." - duh! It's a plain steel string! Want more tone? Buy a thicker string!Read complete review

As for the "producer" who wrote "coUld havE a stronger tone." - duh! It's a plain steel string! Want more tone? Buy a thicker string!
I'm a guitar tech as well as a player. I've been buying these strings for years, and I notice the tendency of the ball end of these strings to break off. This a trait I've noticed with other mfr's strings too (exc. D'Addario). I suspect its because the strings are made in China, the home of shoddy engineering. Don't fret (ha!). Here's what you to do: grab your soldering iron, set up the whole pack of strings so the ball ends of all the strings are sticking out, touch the soldering for just a short time to each end and add a little dab of solder to each end. Problem cured. I do these for the .010 size as well, the other sizes don't seem to have this problem.
one minor flaw, string itself is fine
Great value

my Fender B Bender is a PITA - so I keep these handy - instead of ruining a whole pack of strings (in-between changes)

    Comments about Rogue P13 Bulk 12 Pack 013 Plain Steel Electric Guitar Strings:

    I bought these for spares and haven't used any yet but the strings look very good and should
    do fine if a replacement is needed. I haven't used this brand prior but the price was very
    good compared to ther brands. I haven't broken a string playing in ages but had a few mishaps
    installing on guitars so if that occurs will have these for spares.

        Comments about Rogue P13 Bulk 12 Pack 013 Plain Steel Electric Guitar Strings:

        I use the strings I have bought from Musician's Friend for pedal steel guitar which requires a lot of different gauges. They worked fine, were reasonably priced and had free shipping. I also liked being able to buy a dozen of one single gauge in bulk. In the past I have been able to get all the proper gauges I needed. Not so anymore! Musician's Friend has eliminated about half or more of the gauges I need so now I am very disappointed! For that reason only I have to bump down my rating.

            My guitar teacher recommended the Rogue strings when I mentioned that I had had to buy a whole pack of strings when I only needed one. I hadn't known you could buy individual strings in bulk so cheaply. I just wish you also sold acoustic strings like that.

                            i break expensive strings, so being the frugal minded working class musician that i am, i purchased these; i found that when the whole band is playing, any tone deficiency with this string was imperceptible. this was a financial decision and the right one.

                              Great strings to have at "the ready".

                              In case of breakage or early wear, these strings are a great help!

                              inexpensive, but maybe not even worth it

                              highly satisfied
                              I should have bought these sooner. I normally play 13-56 strings and I don't downtune so the 13 breaks often. Having a dozen around really allows me to play with more freedom and less worry about breaking a string. Truly worth it.
                              excellent, strong
