Love my SITs
November 10, 2019
I have been using SIT strings since they first began to appear in 1980. I use them on all of my instruments-6 and 12 string guitars, bass and violin, Every time I try something else I quickly return to SITs They have become more difficult to find in music stores in my area but Just Strings carry them all They are bright sounding and are perfect for what ever style of music I am playing
ProsThey really do stay in tune
ConsI have to order them since they are not carried locally

I like, but just a little too light
September 27, 2019
I put these on my 1967 Gibson Hummingbird. I like the way they feel and sound, but they seem just a bit light both in volume and feel for that guitar. I'll go up to regular lights next time.

I put SIT Silencers on my dobro (Resonator Strings) and I really like them. The volume is good, the bar noise is minimal and they are lasting a long time.

I put a set on my couch guitar the other day and OMG they sound great. Very balanced tone and a crisp sound, brite and loud. I worked in the string biz for over 10 years and these will be my new go to set. Didn't think I'd like the wound third but no problems bending, I may switch my electrics to a wound also.

not for me
February 21, 2013
These sounded "dead" for me. I think they've opened up a bit, but these are the only strings that I really didn't like as soon as I played them. They also really didn't cut down the squeaks on shifts quite like I was made to believe they would. These are probably perfect for some of you, but it didn't work for me. I'm sticking with my SITs though, just not these.

SIT acoustic strings

As a "Jazzer" who's used to flatwound strings on my archtop, these strings do a good job of feeling and sounding not so bright and scratchy. Playing jazz on a flattop guitar, I can't use the typical round wound bright strings because they're too noisy. These strings are a very nice compromise between acoustic sound and feel and my need for flatwound sound and feel.

Inverse Wound





"The world's newest and most technically advanced acoustic string. The Silencer process of "Inverse String Winding" compresses the outermost part of the cover wrap while leaving the internal portion of the string intact. This design - exclusive to S.I.T. - produces a silky feel minimizing finger and fret noise, but explodes with a round wound sound."

The Company

"When the S.I.T. Strings Company was started in 1973, we wanted to be different from any other in the industry. Extensive marketing and large sales were never our primary goals. Due to the fact that we both had a love for the guitar and music, the company always reflected our enthusiasm for change. And change is what this company was based on, never being content with the standards of everyone else, but always striving for a higher level. By creating and inventing things that had never been thought of before, S.I.T. has always made strings that change things.

Quality control was also a major concern, and it was discovered long ago that only caring machine operators could be permitted to construct musical instrument strings. Each and every piece had to have the individual attention of the engineer, and our strings are still made this way today.

After S.I.T.'s humble start, it was not long before professional and amateur players alike were demanding the product on an international scale. Since that time, we have grown by leaps and bounds, and are always looking for ways to create new products and improve old ones.

S.I.T. is committed to, as well as thankful to, the musicians who made us what we are. We will always strive to stay the most progressive string company in the world.

Why not inspect our strings closely and prove this to yourself? Stop by for a free factory tour, and see them made while you wait.

The improvements and innovations have only just begun, and as we move into the next century there will always be room for improvement. We invite you to be a partner along that journey with us."
