INFELD
Infeld
guitar strings with superalloy™ wrap
wire deliver bright, cutting tone – and they
measurably produce more power than other
strings. And higher gain means a better
­signal-to-noise ratio.
Infeld
guitar strings are
also perfect for heavy effects users, or for long
signal paths where dropoff could be a problem.
INFELD
Gitarrensaiten mit Superalloy™ Um­
spin­nung haben einen klaren, durch­drin­genden
Klang, der messbar kraft­voller ist, als bei
anderen Saiten. Ein höherer Verstärkungs­
grad bedeutet natürlich auch einen besseren
Geräuschpegelabstand.
INFELD
Gitarrensaiten
sind auch ideal, wenn viele Effekte eingesetzt
werden sowie für lange Signal­wege, wo es zu
einem Abfall kommen könnte.
General
When the instru-
ment is not in
use, do not
release the ten-
sion of any of the
strings, as this is
harmful to both
the instrument
and the strings.
String care
As a string is played, metal is physically worn
off from the windings, especially in areas where
there is contact with the frets. Also, the acid
in the sweat of the player’s hands will cause
further deterioration where the fingers come
in contact with the strings. As this occurs over
a period of time, the string will no longer have
a uniform mass and will not play true. At this
point the richness in overtones is diminished,
and the volume of sound decreased.
String life can be somewhat prolonged by
wiping the strings with a dry lint-free cloth
after each playing session. Avoid using oils or
grease, as they will mute the metals and could
cause the windings to slip and become loose
(which affects intonation and tone, effectively
ruining the string).
Changing strings
The matter of when, and how often, to change strings is a
somewhat subjective decision. The general rule is to change
the set before your strings have deteriorated to the point that
tone and intonation are affected. It is highly recommended
to change the entire set at the same time, in order to retain
proper string to string balance and volume. Action and
intonation should be checked periodically, such as when
changing strings, even when replacing them with the same
style and gauge, as minor variations can occur. Also, weather
changes or different climatic conditions encountered in
traveling can affect a guitar’s action and intonation.
It is important to always check action and intonation, and
make adjustments if necessary, when changing string styles
or gauges. Especially if trying strings of a lighter gauge for the
first time, it may be necessary to make some adjustments to
the bridge, neck, nut and truss rod, to restore proper action
and to prevent string buzz.
