Smith Guitar Strings 8-38
January 28, 2016
I purchased these strings in a search to find a set that are easier to bend. I'm up in years and I want to minimize the stress to my finger joints from the sweeping bends I tend to do. So I've been purchasing light gauge string sets from various makers. This set is mounted in a Mexican Standard Stratocaster. I'm very impressed with this set. They bend easy (especially the top 3) with less pressure than other sets I've installed. They do take some time to stretch out and tune in but once broke in, they hold tuning very well. I intend to purchase several more sets. I have not played them through an amp so for now, I rate them as a very solid 4.
