Stringjoys Signatures sets are created using the very best American-made raw materials and feature a nickel-plated steel wrap wire wound over a hexagonal-shaped core wire.

Since their inception, Stringjoy have made it their goal to produce the very best strings they possibly can.  Their signatures are created using their very own specific manufacturing techniques that have been honed over the years and because of their obsession in perfecting this process, they are able to achieve a string with much tighter (closer together) winds.  This inherently makes the string smoother under the fingers.  It also helps increase output due to a higher mass and helps extend the lifespan of the strings as the tighter winds prevent any sweat and muck from permeating between the windings of the wound strings.

Stringjoy are not scared to buck the trend either.  Rather than resorting to creating sets using the run-of-the-mill gauges we’re all accustomed to, you’ll notice that some of their gauges stray a little from the norm.  Stringjoy place a big focus on balance and their sets utilise their own ‘modern, reconstructed’ gauges that aim to offer a much more comfortable, playable set from string to string, all the way up and down the fretboard.

Here’s what Stringjoy say about their Balanced Light Set;
“We know what you’re thinking: 10 to 48? I thought Light strings went 10 to 46? Yeah well, let us explain…

We do a lot of experimenting around here with different string gauges — We know, we’re nerds — and we love to run the tension math to see how certain sets perform. Through all that, we’ve discovered two inherent problems in a typical 10-46 “Light” set: there are big dips in tension on both the 2nd and 6th strings (.013 and .046, respectively). So, with our Balanced Lights, we fix all that by using a .0135 and a .048 instead.

The result is a set of strings that plays evenly across the entire fretboard and intonates better. So if you’ve been a classic 10s player, you have to give these a try. Seriously.

This is our most popular set of strings for a reason.”

Who are Stringjoy?

Hailing from Nashville, Tennesee, 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.
