Because acoustic guitars don’t have pickups or amps to color their sound, their strings have a big role in the tones that they produce. The best strings to choose depend on the type of guitar you have, how often you play, and the sound you seek. At LAWK STAR Guitar, you’ll find acoustic guitar strings by:
- DR Handmade Strings
- Red Brand
- Ernie Ball
Acoustic Guitar String Buying Guide
- Guitar size: In general, smaller or narrower guitars use lighter-gauged strings. Bigger guitars use heavier gauges.
- Playing style: Lighter gauges are better for picking, while medium and heavy gauges are good for strumming.
- Desired tone: Guitar strings are made from a variety of materials and have different windings that affect their overall sound.
- Coated strings: Because the dirt and oils on your hands cause strings to wear, a coating gives them extra protection and a longer life. At the same time, coatings affect the sound of strings, which some players don’t like.
Take the guesswork out of finding the right strings for your acoustic guitar. Tell the experts at LAWK STAR about your guitar and the type of music that you like to play, and we’ll provide you with recommendations to help you achieve your signature sound.
