With 30 years of designing and building instruments under his
belt, Roger Sadowsky now tackles an integral part of getting the best tone
out of those instruments – the strings.
Created by Sadowsky in collaboration with Richard Cocco of E.O. Mari, Inc.,
the electric bass, electric guitar and acoustic guitar strings are available
in a variety of gauges and materials to suit different tastes and playing styles.
Featuring a hex core for added reliability in combination with a slinky, playable
feel, Sadowsky Electric Guitar Strings are available in Regular Nickel roundwound
for a brighter, sparkling tone; Pure Nickel roundwound for a warmer, more full-bodied “jazz” sound,
and Flatwound. Sadowsky is also collaborating with Jimmy Bruno on a unique
new “polished roundwound” guitar string offering the best of both formats.
All guitar strings are available in popular gauge sizes.
Sadowsky Electric Bass strings for 4- and 5-string instruments are available
in Stainless Steel roundwound (light and standard weights) for those who prefer
a brighter, more highly defined sound; the new Bright Nickel strings, darker
overall yet still bright enough to cut through the mix, and the new Flatwound
Sadowsky Acoustic Guitar strings are available in Phosphor Bronze which feature
a warm tone and hex core for long string life, along with the brighter-sounding
80/20 Bronze strings, also featuring a hex core and supple playing tension.
