SIT Strings
May 6, 2010
I have been playing guitar professionally forever and there is only one kind of string I would use. SIT strings are simply the best. They do what they say...
They stay in tune...
Even on tremolo equipped guitars...
Nothing else like them...
I have more than a dozen guitars that I play continuously. These strings last. I've used and experimented with them all...
The only other string that I would use or recommend are Maxima Gold, if you can afford them.
Quite frankly, there is no greater bang for the buck...
Feel, tone, longevity, tensile retention...
None Better !!!

"The "Stay-in-Tune" strings that made us famous! Nickel plated cover wrap over a hard-tempered "Swedish Steel" hex core. Our most popular and widely used electric guitar set."

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."
