Why would I want to play a custom set of strings?
Every guitarist knows there’s a big difference between playing a set of 9s and a set of 10s (or 11s, 12s, or 13s, for that matter). But for most of history, only the pros had the luxury of designing their own string sets, optimized for their exact gear and playing style. We changed that.
Customizing your string sets opens up a whole world of possibilities:
- Every guitar is different. We’ve found that slightly increasing the tension on the bottom end of a Les Paul can bring out even more depth in the tone. Tele’s get even twangier with slightly lighter strings on the bottom end. Whatever your gear and your needs, we can design a set just for you.
- Have you been using standard strings to play in alternate tunings? Let us create a set that’s designed with that tuning in mind.
- Want a wound 3rd that you can bend like a plain string? What about a heavier 6th string that won’t feel floppy in Drop D? We’ll work with you to find the perfect set for how you play.
