Kirk Hammett of Metallica Custom Set
Assembled by stringsdirect using Ernie Ball RPS Slinky Strings

A patented winding of bronze wire is tightly wrapped around the lock twist of the ball end of plain strings. String slippage and breakage are minimized at the ball end where these most often occur.  RPS strings last longer and stay in tune better than conventional plain strings. Wound strings are the same used in Slinky Nickel Wound Sets.

Kirk Hammett says: "So what I use is the three top strings from a 10s set and then the bottom three strings from a 48 set.  And the reason for that is, you know, as a lead guitar player I need to be able to, like bend out the light strings.  If I have 11s on I notice that over the course of a tour my hand gets fatigued.  But if go to 10s it's okay over the course of a tour.  It's bizarre, and it only took me 10-years to realise that!  Obviously, the bass strings I want a heavier gauge so that it sounds heavier.  You know, it sounds fuller when I play."

Whether you play electric, acoustic, bass or classical guitar we understand that not every stock set available is exactly the right gauge for you, so we've gone that extra step further to help you guys out.

We'll put together a bespoke set of strings based on the gauge and brand of your choice.  We'll then make this set available to only you via a private link on our website which you can come back to every time you need to restock.

Gone are those days of strenuously adding all the specific gauges you need - let us do the hard work.
