Back in the mid-’50s to late ’60s, electric guitar string sets were almost exclusively wound using a pure nickel wrap wire and in some instances, you may have seen this referred to as ‘vintage nickel’.

Stringjoy have harked back to yesteryear and produced a string that not only nods to days gone by but also satisfies the demands of the more modern player too, ‘modern vintage’ if you will.

Their Broadways range starts with a thinner, round core wire.  Both of these elements help to give these strings a wonderful flexibility whilst still maintaining a healthy dose of durability and tuning stability.  They are then wrapped with a pure nickel wrap wire that contains more nickel than the typical ‘nickel plated steel’ sets that we most commonly see today.  Coupled with their very own unique string winding techniques, this produces a lovely full, warm tone. Whilst these may have vintage vibes they’ll be sure to please any player.

Here’s what Stringjoy say about their Broadway Pure Nickel Heavy Bottom Super Light Gauge Set;
“At Stringjoy, gauges are like our children. We love them all equally. But, like Orwell said, some are more equal than others. Our Heavy Bottom Super Light Broadways are some of the most equal of all of them.

The incredible flexibility of our Broadway wounds means that this set gives you loads of playability, and full, warm tonality. We’d recommend it to anyone, so if you’re reading this, then we’d definitely recommend them to you.

If you’ve ever played Pure Nickel strings before, these strings have even more nickel in them than the strings you’ve played in the past. That means more of that rich, full tonal character. It also means more flexibility, since the round core is thinner than it is in other sets. But these don’t sacrifice when it comes to strength or durability either, and they hold tune with the best of ’em.”

Who are Stringjoy?

Hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, Stringjoy are a burgeoning string manufacturer committed to great customer service and caring about putting quality products in their customer's hands.  Despite being a young company in comparison to some of the bigger brands, these guys are making big waves and really know their stuff when it comes to strings.

Formed in 2014, Stringjoy was first created after owner Scott Marquart began putting together his very own custom gauge sets.  Frustrated at not being able to create his own sets without having to buy several sets off the shelf and cherry-pick only a few singles from each set, Scott sought out a different solution and in the process created his very own string company, Stringjoy. 

Now, if you’re thinking that Stringjoy are just another string brand, you’d be wrong.  They are not in the business of creating as many sets as they possibly can.  Instead, their strings are made in small batches by a modestly sized in-house team dedicated and focused purely on producing the best quality strings they can possibly make.  Their mantra is “quality, not speed.”  

Each string is made one at a time under scrupulous supervision by a human being at every stage of the process - all the way from securing the ball end to the core wire to packing the strings in their boxes.  Stringjoy profess that making their strings relies on the skills of only the very best trained string winders insisting “winding a perfect string is an art.”

Not content with producing any old set of strings, Stringjoy have a very high-quality control with every string individually inspected from end to end before it makes its way into the box and onto your guitar.  Any slight imperfection and the string doesn’t make the cut. Simple as!

Their sets are already extremely popular over in the USA with highly regarded players such as Joey Landreth and Ariel Posen being big advocates.
