Why String Drop?

Perfect Progressive Tension

Ensures low strings are tight, while bends on higher strings are easier. The feel is very comparable to fanned frets.

Enhanced Tuning Stability

Thanks to the use of progressive tension, your low strings won’t be knocked out of tune if you pick too hard.

The Freshest

Typical guitar strings are made, then shipped to a distributor where they sit until being shipped to a store, and then sit on a shelf for months until you buy them. Our strings are shipped straight to you, factory fresh which means they last longer. Like fresh baked bread (don’t eat them please).

FAQs

Do I have to subscribe?

No, it’s up to you! You can now purchase our strings without a subscription if you wish.

Can I cancel?

Yes, you can cancel whenever you want. To cancel, simply log into your account and cancel. It’s as easy as that. There are no fees charged for cancellation. In fact, there are no hidden fees of any kind. We hate fees, and you should too.

Are there any hidden fees?

There are no hidden fees associated with String Drop or Wired Guitarist. It’s not how we operate. We would rather earn your long-term business than make a small amount of money charging you an imaginary fee for doing nothing.

Can I skip months?

Yes, you may skip a month by logging in and doing so from the customer panel. Contact us if you need more help.

What gauges are the strings?

Our strings do not correspond with the tension you would expect due to the way they are wound, which is part of the reason they sound so clear!

The Regular 6 set will feel roughly like a 9 – 50 set, the Heavy 6 like a 10 – 58, and the 7 string sets are the same for the first 6 strings, with the 7th on the Regular 7 feeling like a 60 or 61, and the Heavy 7 feeling like a 62.

If you need more help picking a set, please continue reading the FAQ!

What string set is right for me?

6 Strings:
We recommend the Regular 6 set for tuning to standard, or up to a step down. They are usable in drop C as well if you are ok with a more slinky feel.

The Heavy 6 set will work well in standard if you prefer a tighter feel, and will perform well for tunings as low as C. If you are tuning lower or prefer more tension, we recommend a Regular 7 set. Just toss the high E. There is no additional charge for our 7 string sets.

7 Strings:
The Regular 7 set is ideal for those tuning to B standard or A if you’re OK with a looser feel. Any lower and we recommend the Heavy 7 set. We do not recommend using it to tune below G.

Wired Guitarist is the name of our guitar store & community, which you can visit here.

Yes! Just login and cancel your current subscription, then sign up again with the new strings you want. Your new strings will ship out immediately — we recommend waiting until you need new strings again.

Do you ship internationally?
