Listen up tone junkies...there's a new string in town! We are now stocking the brand new Santa Cruz Parabolic Tension strings.
When it comes to strings, it’s all about tension. While gauge is simply the measurement of the string’s diameter, the tension of a string determines its relative volume to the other strings (EQ). Santa Cruz Strings are engineered to do what others cannot, to put the exact tension on each individual string to create the appropriate download pressure. Santa Cruz Strings require precise core to wrap ratios and precision fit and finish for unprecedented tolerances of one half of one thousandths of an inch. This accurately determines the tension/volume of each string to the exact EQ that your guitar was designed for.
In short, Santa Cruz strings come in different tensions, not gauges. We recommend the Mid-tensions for a dreadnought or jumbo and the Low-tensions for a small body. Come on in and give them a go! $25 each.
