what makes the difference?

One string does NOT fit all.

YOUR GENRE

What genre do you typically play?

The style of music you play, and the WAY you play depending if you're lead guitar, rhythm guitar, or otherwise should definitely be considered. If it varies, then consider something that fits the bill, and that works for you!

YOUR TONE

Still on that tone quest that all musicians seem to always be on?

Consider the tuning your guitar is set to, pick ups, amplifier, and pedals you are using. The material composition, the type of treatment applied to the strings such as coatings can impact the tone you're trying to achieve.

yOUR STYLE

What style of playing do typically play?

This one is important regardless if you're laying down tasty riffs or chugging along, you might reconsider the thickness of your strings.

YOUR SETUP

How is your guitar typically setup?

How your guitar is setup can dramatically change the result of your playing. A general rule of thumb to follow, is if you play harder keep your action higher to compensate for the raddle of your strings. If you tend to play lighter and more precise then keep your action lower. If you're unsure, our in-house tech can setup your guitar to fit your style.
