Brian May Set

I have been using these strings for over 7 years now. I love them for their articulation, tone, feel, sustain and longevity. Their longevity makes them one of the least expensive sets of strings I've ever used.

I like using them on all the guitars I have except the guitars with long scale necks like Strats. They have higher tension for their gauge than most other brands making them a bit stiff to bend. The plus side of this tension is very excellent articulation.

Because of the materials from which they are made, Optima Golds are rather bright. However, after they get broken in, they mellow to the brightness of new strings from other makers using different materials. The great thing is they stay that way until you actually physically wear them out. For music that requires a lighter touch, I've had sets last as long as 9 months. I generally get 5-6 months out of a set. They don't break easily either. Over these past 7 years, I have only broken 2 Optima strings... period! Other brands with standard type materials - at least 1 string per guitar per week.

Don't let the sticker run you off. Do yourself a favor and try Optima Gold guitar strings. Give them a chance because they not like anything you've used before. You will be pleased!
