SOUTHBOUND STRINGS - The string specifically voiced for cigar box guitars and other handmade instruments.
We know that instrument builders choose specific woods, parts and details to give a certain playability…however, it’s the strings that drive all these things. Southbound Strings maximize the tone, playability and response of cigar box guitars and similar stringed instruments. Try a pack and you’ll hear the difference.
Our acoustic phosphor bronze strings feature a hard-tempered hex core for dynamic response that maximizes vibrations of cigar boxes and other unique resonating chambers. Our nickel wound electric strings feature nickel-plated cover wrap over a high-tempered hex core. This construction shakes every bit of response from a wide variety of pickups, whether hand-wound pickups or factory made.
