Guitar Strings FAQs

  • What strings are best for an acoustic guitar?

    Some of the best acoustic guitar strings are made by Ernie Ball, D'Addario, and Fender. The best strings for an acoustic guitar are those which are most comfortable to play and produce the best sound when you play them.
  • What strings are best for an electric guitar?

    Some popular electric guitar string brands include Ernie Ball, D'Addario, Fender, and Elixir. Choose your strings just as you would for acoustic - those which are most comfortable to play and that produce the best sound when you play them.
  • How do I know which guitar strings to buy?

    By trial-and-error is the only way that you will discover which guitar strings are best for you. Try out some different brands and sizes until one gives you a tone and feel that you like.
  • What gauge guitar strings are best for beginners?

    Beginners might prefer thinner guitar strings such as .09s or .10s as they are easier to hold down correctly when learning chords and scales for the first time.
  • What thickness guitar strings should I use?

    Use the guitar strings that feel and sound the best when you play them. Try out some different types until you settle on a favourite.
  • How often should I change my guitar strings?

    Guitar strings should be changed roughly every 3 months. This will depend, however, on how often you are playing guitar and how well-maintained your instrument is.
  • What's the difference between coated and uncoated guitar strings?

    Coated guitar strings feature a layer of polymer which is corrosion-resistant and should lead to strings which last longer. The coating does not allow for the build-up of dirt and grime from your fingers as quickly and they retain their sound over time.
