Stringjoy 6 String Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings - Heavy Bottom Light Gauge (10-52)
Ah, so you like a set of strings that packs a punch, do ya? You like to pick heavy on the bottom but still want to be able to bend up top? Well then, Stringjoy Heavy Bottom 10s are just the strings for you.
This set addresses the two tension issues that arise in typical 10-52 sets: the 2nd string is too light, and the 5th string is too heavy. Stringjoy fix the top end by subbing in a .0135 for the typical .013, bringing perfect balance to all the plain strings. Then on bottom, they drop the gauge of the 5th string to a .040 (from the typical .042) to pull everything evenly together down there.
These two tweaks give Stringjoy Heavy Bottom 10s great balance on both the plain and wound strings, with extra tension on the bottom for heavier players—or just those who are after a thicker bottom end sound.
Gauges: .010 – .0135 – .017 – .030 – .040 – .052
To put it simply, fresh guitar strings, made with quality materials and genuine care just sound and play better.
- Stringjoy guitar strings are made by a small team in the USA, out of all American materials: top quality nickel alloy, hand wound around a high carbon steel core wire.
- The combination of better materials and more careful craftsmanship creates a more natural-sounding, longer lasting string, without the tone-deadening effects of string coatings.
- Stringjoy are known for their quality control. Their strings are wound in small batches, and they use real human beings at every step of the process: the winding, the coiling, the packing, you name it.
- Every string is inspected individually before it goes into your set. If anything is wrong with a string, from the way it’s secured around the ball end, through the entire winding, it doesn’t make the cut.
What does a higher quality set of guitar strings mean for you?
- Better tuning stability for the life of the string
- Longer string life and less breakage, when cared for properly
- Smoother, more balanced playability across the neck of the bass
