Why Gold-Plated Strings

Optima makes strings with real 24-karat gold! The German company has been manufacturing guitar strings for over 75-years, developing and producing their strings completely in their factory in Germany. They use absolutely the best possible materials, literally.

But why?! Gold is one of the densest of all metals, it’s malleable but also virtually indestructible. It’s a great conductor of heat and electricity, and gold is chemically inert making it impervious to tarnishing or corrosion where other metals could be… see where we’re going with this?



Yes, Gold strings offer potential for the best guitar tone you can imagine and unparalleled durability. In these sets the plain/non-wound strings are made from nickel-plated steel which are then coated in 24k gold. The wound strings use a tinned-steel hex core with a gold-plated braided wrap wire.
