Ah, so you like a set of strings that packs a punch, do ya? You like to pick heavy on the bottom but still want to be able to bend up top? Well then, our Heavy Bottom 10s are just the strings for you.

This set addresses the two tension issues that arise in typical 10-52 sets: the 2nd string is too light, and the 5th string is too heavy. We fix the top end by subbing in a .0135 for the typical .013, bringing perfect balance to all the plain strings. Then on bottom, we drop the gauge of the 5th string to a .040 (from the typical .042) to pull everything evenly together down there.

These two tweaks give our Heavy Bottom 10s great balance on both the plain and wound strings, with extra tension on the bottom for heavier players—or just those who are after a thicker bottom end sound.

Sound good? Rad. Hit the red button below to add these to your cart.

 

Gauges: .010 – .0135 – .017 – .030 – .040 – .052





What should you expect from Stringjoy Signatures?

  1. Present, focused tone that brings out the true voice of your guitar and the details of your playing style.
  2. Modern, reconstructed gauges aimed at balancing the tension, tone, and feel of the strings across the fretboard.
  3. High-mass winding, leading to higher output, fuller tone, and improved longevity.

How do we make our strings?

  • Stringjoy Signatures electric guitar strings are made by a small team in Nashville, TN, USA, out of all-American materials: our top quality Nickel-Plated Steel, wound around a high-carbon hexagonal steel core wire.
  • The combination of better materials and more careful craftsmanship creates a more natural-sounding, longer lasting string, without the tone-deadening effects of string coatings.
  • We’re known for our quality control. Our strings are wound in small batches, and we use real human beings at every step of the process: the winding, the coiling, the packing, you name it.
  • Every string is inspected individually before it goes into your set. If anything is wrong with a string, from the way it’s secured around the ball end, through the entire winding, it doesn’t make the cut.

What does all that mean for you?

✓ Better tuning stability for the life of the string ✓ Longer string life and less breakage, when cared for properly ✓ Smoother, more balanced playability across the neck of the guitar
