We will not waste time telling you how guitar strings affect the sound quality of the instrument: it is obvious to every musician that the choice of strings is almost crucial in shaping the frequency characteristics of the output signal.
Below we will try to briefly and succinctly tell you about which guitar strings are better to buy, if you have already decided what sound you want to get at the output.
It doesn't matter if you have a 6-string instrument or more strings installed on it: the production technology is generally almost identical. To date, among the owners of electric guitars, the most popular sets with a core made of steel and nickel-plated braid (in our catalog, the "Alloy" filter is marked with like & laquo; Nickel \ Steel & raquo;), less popular are sets made of pure steel, the third most popular are guitar strings made of pure nickel. What is the difference:
Now a few words about the types of winding: flat winding of guitar strings is best shown when you need to get a thick and as soft as possible sound with a minimum number of sounds. The perfect choice for combining with pure nickel sets for blues and jazz lovers, lovers of vintage sound.
Round winding: the most common, has a bright and sonorous tone, when moving your fingers on the string and when playing with a pick, there are a number of unnecessary sounds, which, however, are not bad to nullify with noise reduction.
Semicircular winding: of the guitar strings – is a reasonable compromise between brightness, depth of sound and the number of sounds. It is a winding on the core of a round winding, the outer part of which is then ground to a flat state.
If you still do not know what strings to buy for a bass guitar, then the previous point will help you: in the case of the production of bass guitar strings, the same rules apply regarding the types of winding and the materials used.
Pay attention only to the length of the beaker that a particular set is designed for: to clarify this information before placing an order, you can contact us in any convenient way, specified in the section "Contacts" or just write to our online chat in the lower right corner of the screen.
By analogy with the production technology of strings for electric guitars, we have a choice of several types of winding: in the case of acoustic instruments, this winding is made of Bronze 80/20 (Bronze 80/20) and Phosphorous bronze (phosphorus-bronze, Phosphor Bronze).
Their differences are generally very clear and noticeable: Bronze 80/20 is distinguished primarily by its crystal clear sound, it makes the guitar sound as bright and sonorous as possible. If you are looking for a powerful attack and a clean cutting sound, then Bronze 80/20 is perfect for you. A more compromise version with a less aggressive and slightly more voluminous tone – alloy bronze 85/15.
Phosphorous bronze is more suitable for purely accompanying musicians and those who play mainly with a pick. This alloy includes copper, zinc and phosphorus (in proportions of approximately 92%/7.8%/0.2%), providing a deeper, more voluminous and softer sound.
Classical guitar strings are represented by a fairly wide variety of types:
Contrary to popular rumors, we should clarify that the silver coating of copper hardly changes the sound of the strings: it is used to give the set a more attractive appearance, as well as to protect the musician's fingers from staining when playing on copper strings. The biggest disadvantage of copper as a winding material is the rapid wear due to its softness. Today, nylon kits with a winding made of nickel silver, phosphorous bronze, brass and other alloys are also popular-they not only increase the service life of guitar strings, but also make the sound of the instrument softer and «velvety ».
