Electro-Harmonix has announced a new range of electric guitar strings.
These strings are custom designed: the wound strings are constructed from high-carbon, hexagonal steel cores that are precision-wrapped by round nickel-plated steel. The unwound strings feature the same core materials, too. These steel components are complemented by a computer-controlled winding process, allowing for more accurate intonation, resonance and sustain while ensuring tuning stability.
“We used our experience in sonic innovation to create strings that will please the most discerning guitar players. They’re long-lasting and deliver lightning-fast playability with great tone and intonation,” said EHX’s founder, Mike Matthews.
As a final touch, string ball ends are colour-coded for easy identification, and each set is packaged in a corrosion-inhibiting bag. EHX’s electric guitar strings are available in three common gauges: Super Light (09-42), Regular Light (10-46), and Medium (11-48).
Retails at $70 per 10 packs of strings. More information at ehx.com.
