Light Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings 9-42
"Guitar players instinctively know how they're supposed to sound. Finding a set of strings that makes that possible is essential. But finding strings that pull something even more out of you? Strings that make you want to dig in harder and only respond back with "that's all you've got?!" That's something special. That's Sheptone."
- Paul Childers
My Handcrafted Premium Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings are designed for players wanting to achieve the tone of their dreams. Sheptone strings are made on a U.S. workbench using the best-available, domestically sourced raw materials. My process ensures the tone, feel, and durability required for the absolute best string, every single time, right out the package.
I don't believe in rushing or mass producing guitar strings as quickly and as cheaply as possible. Instead, I meticulously source materials and apply the time and effort needed, one string at a time. Each Sheptone string is made by hand, one at a time, with nickel-plated steel that’s carefully wrapped around a treated hex steel core. I feel the handcrafted difference is sonically apparent and they are destined for the guitars of “Tone Freaks” everywhere.
The gauges in the 9-42 set are:
.009, .011, .016, .024w, .032w, .042w
For over a decade, Sheptone has been an industry secret for one thing and one thing only—tone. Sheptone Premium Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings represent the next phase of that tradition.
