How To Build Your Own Custom Set

Thinking of ourselves as the 'strings guys' we definitely know a thing or two about guitar and bass strings, and with that comes the complete understanding of the frustration you get when trying to find a set of strings with the exact gauges you want. Some are so close, but just not quite there! The professionals get to define their sets and we think 'why shouldn't the rest us too?'...

Well, now you can!

Welcome to the Strings Direct Custom Gauge Set Builder.

We're delighted to give our customers the opportunity to create their very own custom gauge set of strings from our huge selection of single strings from the world’s biggest string brands.

Using the buttons above, you’ll be able to choose the type of set you wish to create. Once you've made your selection, simply follow the on-screen steps where you'll be guided through choosing each of the individual string gauges within your set.

If you are unsure of which gauges to choose for a specific tuning or need some help on matching string tensions across your set, you can always get in touch with us by calling us on 01702 540068 where we'll be happy to offer some guidance. Alternatively, you can always send an email to
