Strings for Electric Guitar
Best choice for beginners: Easier to play: Due to the small string thickness (.009 set), you need less force when fingering chords than with thicker strings (e.g. .010 or .11 set). This is of particular benefit to beginners who (still) have sensitive fingers (with little callus). Guitar strings made of nickel-plated steel are the most popular variant among electric guitar strings. In terms of sound, they ensure a good combination of warmth and brightness. Coated guitar strings are more durable and less prone to dirt or rust. Different thicknesses of strings result in different vibration behavior and thus a slightly different sound.
