by | June 5, 2020

In this episode, Joe and Gareth break down everything you need to know about guitar strings. From half-round to flat-wound and round-wound, they cover all the different types and materials. Starting with string-gauge and its effect on tone and feel, they discuss some key things to keep in mind when choosing the right set for you.

Whether you prefer lighter guitar strings for snappier tones and easy bending; or heavier strings for darker tones and drop-tuned chugs. Either way, at some point you will have faced the question of how often to change your strings. Joe and Gareth offer some useful insights on this. They also discuss what some companies do to make their strings last longer and offer tips on how you can do the same.
