Stringjoy - Signatures - Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings - Balanced Light 10-48
I'm excited to announce the return of Stringjoy strings to the Home of Tone! I first stocked stringjoy back in 2017, then simply due to a transitional change in distribution and other commitments wasn't able to re-stock. But I'm very pleased to see these back on my shelves thanks to their new UK distributor whom has always been supportive of the Home of Tone which is great!
Stringjoy are a Nashville based string company and manufacturer established in 2014. They've since gained a huge following for both their quality of product and useful media content too. Many well established players and guitar makers have taken to Stringjoy as their brand of choice which has certainly also helped their following.
The Signatures are their classic nickel wound string, many feature some slight variations on the more common string gauge choices. Refinements made from testing, developing and in speaking with players too via their custom order processes. They often refer to these gauges as 'balanced' sets, but I'll list each below so you can see which is right for you.
I stock the Signatures in a variety of gauges, here we have the 'Balanced Light' 10-48 set.
Here's what Stringjoy say about the set! -
"I know what you’re thinking: 10 to 48? I thought Light strings went 10 to 46? Yeah well, let me explain…
We do a lot of experimenting around here with different string gauges — I 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."
