Your Guitar Strings can have a considerable impact on the tonality and tuning stability of your instrument. We recommend changing your guitar strings regularly, at the same time, to ensure your tone is consistent!
Guitar and Bass strings are supplied in packs of 5, 6, 7 or 8, depending on the number of strings you have on your instrument. Electric and Acoustic Guitar strings are usually manufactured with a metal or nylon wrap material like Bronze, Nickel, Steel or Cobalt.
As well as the material itself, the 'gauge' (or thickness) of the string has a profound effect on sustain and tone as they are plucked. Thicker gauges will provide a richer, deeper tone, whereas 'Light' gauges (between 7 and 9) provide a brighter, sharper tone.
We also stock a wide range of Nylon Strings for Classical Guitar - the perfect choice for new players (as they are easier on the tips of your fingers).
We stock a massive range of gauges, pack sizes and brands, covering Acoustic Guitar Strings, Electric Guitar Strings, as well as instrument strings for Mandolin, Ukulele & Banjo. With top brands like Ernie Ball, D'Addario, Fender, Gibson, Martin, Elixir and Rotosound. With over 200 choices of guitar strings there is only one place to string up and rock out.
Our in-store experts can help you pick out the most suitable gauge and material depending on your instrument, and how each type affects your tone and playability.
