Our top of the line string. They are wound for the most demanding guitarists who require excellence in each set of strings. The skilled artistry that goes into creating each of our strings guarantees impeccable quality. Our Scholar series strings are handcrafted and individually tested for tone, pitch, and clarity. Each string is individually labeled and packaged to ensure you get premium performance. The Scholar series strings have a signature copper tail winding on them that designates the mark of hand craftsmanship that no machine could ever replace.

 

What is a copper tailed string? It is a copper wrap wire near the ball-end that has long been a signature part of our handcrafted string construction. The copper tail first appeared in our Elite series of strings, and was quadruple hand wrapped integral to the core wire. In certain guitar tone applications, it served as a micro electrical coil. It soon became popular with many of our customers and a patent was applied for as the popularity grew. The Elite series also included a copper head at the opposite end in lieu of a decorative silk wrap. Over the years, the handcrafted copper tail and copper head have been used to establish different performance characteristics of the string. This included tone, amplification, and overall electrical signaling from the string.


The Scholar series strings have a signature copper tail winding on them that continues the mark of hand craftsmanship that no machine could ever replace. The Scholar series use a single wound copper tail that provides a little “extra something” that other ordinary guitar strings cannot deliver.

 

Scholars are handcrafted!

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.
