Gabriel Tenorio String Co. - Nickel Steel - UK10s (Heavy Bottom) w/STD twists
Steel Round Core strings with nickeled Steel wrap. Handmade & custom wound for a better fit by Gabriel Tenorio in Los Angeles, USA.
This set of GT Rounds is a 10-52 gauge. Gabriel developed this set after a few requests for a lighter top/heavy bottom style. We tested and loved them so they became the 'UK10 Heavy' set. These are specially formulated to work well with Fender Strats and Teles, and also great on Les Pauls. So a great hybrid set here.
Gabriel's strings are now available with three 'twists', STD, SHORT & TREM.
The twist at the ball end is extremely crucial to the performance of the string. Gabriel has adapted longer and hardware appropriate twists to his matrix of formulations.
This set of Nickel Steel UK10s is spec'd with STD Twist - This is the important part to note prior to order. These are specially formulated for most through body builds including strats, also for use with stop bar/tuneamatic setups (approx. 1.125” twist length).
This string set will NOT fit wraparound tailpieces, top loading bridges like Tele for example.

How they're made
Each string in each and every set is hand wound by Gabriel Tenorio, in his workspace in LA, California. Each component of the string specially chosen over years of development for consistency, tone and reliability, from core, to ball end to wrap. These strings are hand wound, IE, Gabriel ultilises a string winding machine and individually guides the wrap and twist by hand, not a guided machine like others are, one by one around the central round core until the set is complete.
