These Phosphor-Bronze string sets have been designed to suit the unique requirements of Weissenborn guitars. Many of the strings marketed towards Weissenborns today are excessively heavy and can cause damage, particularly on vintage instruments.
Strings need tension to create the volume and seemingly endless sustain that Weissenborns are known for. Too much tension however can cause the top to belly and damage valuable instruments. These strings sets are the culmination of years of refinement in search of the perfect strings by Richard Wilson Guitars. They will suit any Weissenborn new or old.
This set is suited to open D-major tuning D-A-D-F#-A-D.
.56w, .42w, .32w, .24w, .16, .12
Approximate tension on a standard 25" scale Weissenborn is 145lb / 66kg in Open D tuning.
