Some guitarists prefer light strings; some prefer heavy. Since music tastes are subjective, there's no right or wrong answer when it comes to string gauge - of course, certain gauges are better for some genres than others. Take for example, 012 gauge electric guitar strings. These strings are found in "Heavy" sets and their thickness makes them ideal for metal guitarists who want plenty of power and clarity at higher volumes. In fact, 012 gauge electric guitar strings are more often than not the gauge of choice for drop tunings, and sets with the 012 gauge are also made for baritone and seven-string models.

As you browse this section, it's easy to see that string manufacturers are aware of the 012 gauge string's popularity in metal circles. To name a few examples, there's the Dunlop Heavy Core Electric Guitar Strings, the Cleartone Monster Heavy Series Nickel-Plated Drop C# Electric Guitar Strings and the DR Strings Drop-Down Tuning XX-Heavy Guitar Strings. All three of these sets are top sellers and are quite commonly found on the axes of headbangers and shredding virtuosos.

With that being said, metal guitarists aren't the only musicians who appreciate the well-defined attack and terrific intonation of the 012 gauge. Just take a look at the Thomastik BB112 Light Jazz BeBop Guitar Strings - a perfect choice to make your hard-earned jazz guitar talents soar. Or how about the Black Diamond Pure Jazz Electric Guitar Chromium Flat Wound Strings. Flatwound strings are favored by many mainstream jazz guitarists because they don't bend often. These strings produce a soulful, old-school sound and are meticulously-crafted to hold up through countless performances.

And there are many other packages that feature the 012 gauge. Honestly, you might want to consider grabbing more than one pack - after all, every guitarist should have extra strings on hand, and trying out different string materials will give you a better idea of which string sets best suit your unique playing style. Whatever your tastes may be, one thing is certain - if 012 gauge electric guitar strings are what you prefer, then this is definitely the right catalog for you.
