Framus Blue Label strings offer non-standard choice choice
German guitar brand Framus has launched Blue Label guitar strings into a crowded marketplace but has come up with unusual offerings which might catch the specialist retailer’s eye.
The company says it has ‘…paid special attention to deep tunings such as Drop D, Drop C and Drop A as well as string sets for 7- and 8-string guitars. Sets for standard tunings, in the versions Light, Custom Light, Regular and Heavy are also available’.
The wound strings have a hexagonal core and roundwound-winding wire made of nickel-plated steel.
Eleven sets are on offer, ranging from conventional Light (009-042) at RRP £3.13 to Heavy (011-150 RRP £3.44) but including some less common options such as 8-string Light Top Heavy Bottom at £7.41, Drop D and Dd, Drop C and B and Drop Bb and A, at £4.37, £4.60 and £4.80 respectively. There are also specialist 7-string sets in the range.
The German guitarist Oliver Schmidt was involved in the development of the new Framus Blue Label strings and says: ‘The quality of the strings can easily compete with common brands. Especially interesting is the fact that there are a lot of useful sets for drop tunings and 7- and 8-string strings. Finally, I don’t have to buy single strings anymore to get the desired playing feel.’
