Heavy gauge strings with heavy duty treatment.
Kerly Sinister Strings are nickel wound, heavy gauge strings seasoned between minus 320F and plus 350F for 24 hours to reduce the microcracks that cause tonal loss and premature breakage. Thanks to the repetitive HOT/COLD tempering process, the microcracks close up, preventing the buildup of dirt and corrosion. Strength, sound and string life are enhanced.
Feeling a heavy gauge string underneath your fingertips gives you extra power while cutting through with an unmistakable growl and chunk. These tonal flavors are a necessity for hard hitting, drop tuned riffs, and passion driven playing. Thermal cycling increases durability and dramatically reduces wear.
