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 9.2-47.08 set, the Heavy 6 like a 10.15- 50.04, and the 7 string sets are the same for the first 6 strings, with the 7th on the Regular 7 feeling like a 59.3, and the Heavy 7 feeling like a 62.2. Our Ultra Heavy 6 set will feel like a 13.4-62.2 set and features a wound 3rd string.

What string set is right for me?
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 the Ultra Heavy 6 string set.
The Ultra Heavy 6 set provides enough tension to play as low as B standard, drop B or drop C if you prefer a tighter than what our Heavy 6 offers, and offers a wound 3rd string.
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.
