Weissenborn Guitar Strings

WB56 Premium Weissenborn Strings - Open D & Open G

Weissenborn Slide Guitar Co.

Made in California, USA.

Hands down the best Weissenborn strings on the market. We stand behind them: every Weissenborn guitar we sell is setup and strung with these premium phosphor bronze strings.

These sets are hand-wound to suit the unique requirements of Weissenborn guitars and to ensure balanced tone with volume and sustain in common open tunings.

Our WB56 set is suited to open D-major tuning D-A-D-F#-A-D or open G-major tuning D-G-D-G-B-D. You can tune up to Open E (E-B-E-G#-B-E) on most stable or modern Weissenborn guitars.

.56w, .42w, .32w, .24w, .18, .14

Approximate tension on a standard 25" scale Weissenborn is 151lb / 68.5kg in Open D tuning or 156lb / 70.8kg in Open G.

These strings can be used on any guitar for open tuning including Dobros, resonators, Hawaiian guitars or any conventional acoustic guitar.
