Product Reviews for Sfarzo S-20 S.F.T. Nickel/Iron Wound Super Lite, .008 - .038, 3020SF

Sfarzo S-20 S.F.T. Nickel/Iron Wound Super Lite, .008 - .038, 3020SF5Ron StokesAugust 26, 2009I was looking for a kooky gauged set that came on my Fender Classic 60s Strat and I that Sfarzo made that set. I replaced the Fender Super Bullets that were on the Strat with the Sfarzos and that guitar came alive. It now has a much louder, but sweeter tone. BTW, I wrote this review a month after changing strings and the Sfarzo S.F.T.s have noy yet lost their snap or tone. These also sound great on on a Parker PM-20...

"The Challenge: There are several things to consider when making a guitar string. One must consider how large the core is in relation to the size of the outer wrap. The difference between them will determine how fast the string will break down due to fret wear. Your frets act like a file cuasing wrap separation You have heard other guitar players say "Hey, Brand X is the best string I ever used, but they don't last long, I have to buy a set every week". Our Core-to-wrap ratio will give you longevity, sustain and Output.

"Reality: The core is essential in electric guitars because the core is generally made from steel, where the wrap is usually a nickel alloy and virtually nonmagnetic. Your pickups pickup the steel core wire output, so the bigger the core wire then the louder the string! If the core is too large you will get wrap separation.

"The Solution: Sfarzo has found that the SFARZO Rounded-Hex CoreÔ allows the wrap to grip better on the core wire, therefore less chance of wrap separation. This allows a tighter wrap winding which reduces the chance of acid from your sweaty hands getting onto the core wire, which causes oxidation and literally rots the string from the inside out. This is a more costly TECHNIQUE but will result in a better quality string. Generally speaking, the wrap is nickel alloy and virtually nonmagnetic. This provides the tone of the string where the core provides the output. Srarzo Super Screamers are made from a Nickel Alloy. Outstanding Rock and Roll Strings. S.F.T. (Superior Formulated Tone)Ô strings are a Nickel/Iron combination that results in a very powerful tone while achieving a bright output sound. Sustain is fantastic on this Rounded-Hex core.

"Personal Touch: Each and every Sfarzo String is glove hand wound and placed into its designated envelope. This keeps each string as clean and fresh as possible. The sets are wrapped then shipped directly to you when you place your order>
