  • E L I X I R! The deal you’ve all been waiting for is back. Elixir 3 for the price of 2. Limited stock. Link in bio!
  • H O Y E R Mandolin #whatyoustringing
Check out our customer @mandolinjack ‘s awesome electric Mandolin. “I fitted new tuners, made a new scratch plate, bridge and fitted the Almuse pickup.

Strung this beauty with Picato Ball End Nickel Mandolin Strings - gauge 10-34 light. To be honest the choice for strings was fairly limited. 11s are perfect for most acoustic mandolins and ring out nicely.
However moving to 10-34 allowed for a little more vibrato under the fingers so for the electric it’s better for both sound and playability” ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️ What do you guys think?

Want your guitar to be featured on our feed? 
Email us at info@stringsdirect.co.uk or tag us in a post, send us some photos, along with a description of your axe and what strings it’s string with and why. 🤟

  • Newtone’s are back!! We are delighted to be stocking @newtonestrings again! We currently have the full Heritage range. These strings are handmade right here in the UK and the combination of unique gauge choices, winding process and and round core give these strings a lower tension. This makes them super comfortable to play and also ideal for those more delicate vintage instruments.

  • *STRING TIP* Ernie Ball including some good advice on winding your strings in with their packs!! A couple of windings around your machinehead posts is all that’s needed. 
@ernieball say too many windings can reduce the strength of your strings by up to 50% 😦 .

  • **New Fender Strings** Fender have taken the plunge into the round core string world and we’ve just received our first delivery of their brand new Classic Core range. Round Core strings differ from the traditional Hex Cores often found on many of today’s sets. They give a bit more flexibility but also have a warmer tone to them too! Win win!! .

Welcome to Strings Direct

Hello!

Welcome to Strings Direct.  We’ve been supplying musicians from beginners to professionals since January 1997.  We pride ourselves on delivering the absolute best service and goods to our customers and this goal has taken us from a small, shoebox premises to a much bigger, customised office in Rochford, Essex that we now call home.

We are a small, family-orientated team of professionals who are totally dedicated to our cause.  We’re proud of our reputation for speed and reliability, on giving good, friendly advice and offering the same service to each and every customer.  We’re constantly refining and improving our services to make your experience with us even better; our new scan and pack system now means the time between placing your order and it being packed and ready for despatch can be less than 30 minutes.

Our website has been live for over 20 years and in that time we’ve managed to secure strong relationships with the world’s top strings brands and manufacturers meaning we’re able to boast a vast range of strings for guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin and many other stringed instruments unparalleled by any other company.

We’re not just the strings company.  Strings are our ‘thing’ but we also stock a huge range of accessories for musical instruments from plectrums, straps, guitar cases and capos to guitar effects, switchers, pedal boards and power supplies.

We will never knowingly let a customer down. We feel our policy of providing a service beyond reproach coupled with an extensive range of competitively priced products is a policy we will always standby.  We will never deviate from the standards we have set ourselves, but should the unthinkable happen and we make an error, rest assured we will always do everything possible to rectify any problems swiftly and professionally.

If you have any questions or feel we may be able to help you with your guitaring needs in any way, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thanks for visiting!

Stringsdirect.co.uk

P.S.  Feel free to drop in to our store – we may even make you a coffee!  No Azera though... that stuff’s expensive!
