Your electric guitar without strings would be very quiet... even with that Marshall stack and MXR Distortion. But thankfully, here at Strings Direct (as our name suggests) we can help you with that. If there’s something we’ve learnt in the last 20 years it’s a thing-or-two about guitar strings. We’re happy to boast the UK and Europe’s largest stock selection of electric guitar strings from rock ‘n’ roll icons Ernie Ball and the discerning professional’s D’Addario through more obscure and boutique brands such as Pyramid and Optima.
It’s easy to underestimate how defining a set of strings can be to your playing. Your strings are what will make you heard, they’ll make you sound in-tune, they can be bright and jangly on a Telecaster or bold and powerful on a Les Paul; you may want a more vintage pure nickel or monel tone for your best Shadows impression or you could want it dark, smoky and jazzy on your big archtop. Whatever your tone we have the optimum string for you here.
Elixir Strings by GORE (yeah, that company that make GORE-TEX used in the harshest environments on the planet) are one of our top-selling brands having pioneered the construction of the coated string. The original Elixir Polyweb and Nanoweb coatings have won the hearts of hundreds of thousands of guitarists across the globe who want a string that sounds as good as the day you wound it on, gig after gig.
