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.
