Ah, so you like a set of strings that packs a punch, do ya? You like to pick heavy on the bottom but still want to be able to bend up top? Well then, our Heavy Bottom 10s are just the strings for you.
This set addresses the two tension issues that arise in typical 10-52 sets: the 2nd string is too light, and the 5th string is too heavy. We fix the top end by subbing in a .0135 for the typical .013, bringing perfect balance to all the plain strings. Then on bottom, we drop the gauge of the 5th string to a .040 (from the typical .042) to pull everything evenly together down there.
These two tweaks give our Heavy Bottom 10s great balance on both the plain and wound strings, with extra tension on the bottom for heavier players—or just those who are after a thicker bottom end sound.

Typically, it takes 1-2 business days (M-F) to process your order, regardless of the shipping option selected at checkout. We run on a lean manufacturing model, so when you order strings directly from us, they were made fresh just for you. In rare cases we experience extremely high demand and it may take a few extra days for your order to ship. We ship Monday through Friday, excluding weekends and holidays. You will receive a confirmation e-mail with a tracking link once your order ships.
Almost certainly. We make our strings longer than just about any company to ensure that they will fit on all guitars. All plain steel strings are 43″, wound guitar strings are 46.5″ total with a 39.75″ winding length, and bass strings are 54″ total with a 48″ winding length (or 45″ for short and medium scale bass strings). Bass strings and guitar strings heavier than .060 have varying taper lengths, for full details please see “How long are your strings?” on our FAQs page.
Yes, we make all our strings in our shop in Nashville, TN. We know that many brands do not, but we’ve never wanted to be like the rest of the string brands out there. It’s our mission to make the best strings in the world, and we couldn’t do that unless we could own and master every portion of the process ourselves. We obsess over every single detail of our strings, and we believe that once you install them, you’ll immediately be able to tell the difference a quality string makes.
