Gts.co round core strings, demystified

Gts.co round core strings, demystified

The most common question we get asked from players interested in trying Gts.co strings is, How come these sets are more expensive than others out there? It is a very fair question, especially in a guitar world where there is a lot of 'mystique' thrown around about the quest for great guitar tone, rather than nice details and firm facts. So I hope this blog post today will help with this! There's no magic here, just quality and a lifetime's knowledge. So let's dive in.

Project Offset Phase five! - Vintage 'Tort' and how Mark Townsend of Spitfire captured the magic

When you're lucky enough to be graced by a vintage guitar, perhaps a Pre-CBS Fender for example, and it's outfitted with an original Celluloid Nitrate tortoiseshell pickguard, there is undoubtedly a certain magic to it. It's three dimensional splashes of lava like yellows, glowing reds and rich dark browns. Each one different, each with their own character. For a vintage enthusiast, reproduction guards just don't even come close.

Refining tone & feel, a string gauge at a time - Gabriel Tenorio String Co explained - Pt.2

With Part.1 of the blog series spotlighting Gabriel Tenorio Strings that we released earlier this week, you'll have a good idea now on why the twists are so important. One detail you may have noticed if you've browsed the store looking at gts.co, is the more refined gauge choices available. With half gauges, refined specs and names like 'Super 10s', it's understandably easy to be lost amongst the choice, but it's all very much within reason, stick with it.

TREM Twist, SHORT twist, what does it even mean?! - Gabriel Tenorio String Co explained - Pt.1

We all stroll into our local guitar stores every few weeks or so, have a browse around lusting after new gear and end up just grabbing a fresh set of strings whilst you're in there. We know the gauge we like, perhaps the brand too if it's something we're used to and off we go to the counter to part with our pennies and treat out beloved guitar to a freshen up. These guitar strings are ready for any guitar, straight off the peg making life a little simpler. But is this simpler way the best way?

The response from fellow 'Guitarists Anonymous' members about my trusty No.1 Strat blog post was incredible. Thanks to everyone for checking it out. I figured it'd be nice to follow it up with a spotlight on another of my guitars which lies close to my heart, one that is continually a fighter for that No.1 top spot. My 1995 Heritage H535.
