Fat Metals strings have that handcrafted quality for
players seeking premium performance on an affordable
budget. These strings are individually hand tested for
proper gauging and tone articulation. Each string is
individually labeled and packaged to ensure you get
outstanding tone without paying a premium price.
Real handcrafted strings? Yes!
Other companies claim to have "handmade strings" for guitar and
bass, yet, their factories are full of automated
machines making strings. Our strings are the real thing.
We do not have a large factory full of machines churning
out strings that nobody ever hears or tests before being
sold to you. People make our strings, and they are proud of their
craft. Our goal is to bring you the finest string for
your instrument. Period.
Tuned Core Process (TCP)
All Fat Metals strings are handcrafted with our Tuned
Core Process (TCP). The core wire of our
wound strings is tested for tone, pitch, and
clarity...by human ear! Unlike mass produced strings, we
do not rely upon the core wire tension to produce
quality tone. Think about it for a moment...just because
a guitar string can be pulled to certain tension does
not mean it will sound good. This is why we take things
a step further for you. As the string is manually wound,
we listen to each core wire tuned to a specific pitch.
If it does not have clean pitch and tone, it is tossed
in the trash. We have humans, NOT MACHINES,
listen to our strings as they are handcrafted and
shipped to you. This ensures you get a string that
sounds its very best. Check out the video below to see
how we do it.
