3 Guitar String Problems We Fix

3 Guitar String Problems We Fix

Guitar strings have remained largely unchanged for many decades, and there’s a reason. They got a lot right when they came up with the modern guitar string—nickel plated steel wrapped around hexagonal cores—but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement. And improvement is what we’re all about here at Stringjoy.

That’s the good thing about being a newcomer to the guitar string world. Because we’re not set in old ways, we’ve been able to approach our strings fresh, with no preconceptions—and in doing so, we’ve been able to improve upon some long-standing problems with guitar strings. Here’s three of the fixes we’re most proud of.

Problem #1: Strings still lose their tone too fast.

We’ve all strung up guitar string sets that lose their tone after a few days… Yet the only solutions available are coatings that kill the output and sustain of your guitar. Well, we’ve got another approach:

The Fix:

  • We use a high nickel content wrap wire in our guitar strings, which holds its tone better, for longer. Much the way Pure Nickel strings last longer than regular Nickel-Plated Steel strings, except you get that longevity without losing all your top end.
  • We ship our strings to you fresh. They don’t sit around on a shelf in a warehouse for months (years even!), they head straight to you. By the time you get them strung up, they’re typically not more than a few weeks from being wound.

Problem #2: Most string gauges are unbalanced.

I know it’s hard to believe, I mean everybody uses the same gauges. Well, they’re wrong. Okay, maybe not wrong, they’re just not perfect. Fortunately, there’s a solution:

The Fix:

  • Every guitar string set we sell is internally balanced for even tension and smooth playability. We approached every set of strings we make with a fresh eye and built them based on tension math, not tradition. The differences in gauges are minimal, but having a set that is perfectly balanced across the entire fretboard makes playing a joy. I mean, if you can have perfect balance, why wouldn’t you?

Problem #3: There’s no one there to help.

Who hasn’t broken a string, or gotten the wrong gauge on accident? When that happened, was there anyone there to help you? An email you could write to where someone would work with you to make sure you were happy? Doubtful.

But fear not friend, those dark days are over:

The Fix:

  • We work directly with our customers, so you have access to expert advice whenever you need it, you don’t have to go through a middleman that may or may not know what he or she is talking about.
  • We care about you, and we want to make sure you’re happy. We don’t make money from selling you a set of strings that sucks and you never coming back. Our business model is based on making you so happy that you choose to work with us—and to earn your loyalty we’ve got to take care of you. So, we do.

We’d love to have you in the Stringjoy family.

If all that sounds like something you can get behind, grab a set for yourself and join the Stringjoy family. We’d be proud to have ya. See all our string options HERE, or have a look at a few of our most popular sets:

  1. I have yet to try these strings.trying to do as much research as i can..I dont find changing strings on a guitar painful at all. Even on my 12 string guitars..i do all my own setups ,and repair other friends guitars.So im going to be nitpicky before i change guitar strings that ive become comfortable with .But ,i will try a set on my most cantankerous guitar.

  2. Thanks for the warm welcome Scott, I am a hobby Acoustic Guitarist mostly. I already am on about my fourth set, have ’em on all three of my Guitars. I think the difference is hard to miss, outstanding job. Frank
