In today's music scene, there are probably more genres that use electric guitars than those that don't. One of the things that make the instrument so adaptable is the ability to change its strings. The effects that different strings have on the guitar's sound allow it to fit in with virtually any backup band. When you're looking for replacements, sometimes a single electric guitar string is all you need. That's especially true of the thinner, more fragile strings, especially if you use a tuning method that puts them under a lot of tension.

If you're a professional touring musician, you might even buy multiple spares for a string that often needs to be replaced in order to ensure you're well-prepared on the road. You'll find individual strings in the selection here, as well as bulk packs to keep you covered. As always when buying guitar strings, material is an important aspect to take into account. For electric guitar, that means a choice between steel, nickel-plated steel and pure nickel. If you play classic rock, you may be looking for the soft vintage sound of pure nickel.

Or, if you're into hard rock, metal or modern pop and alternative, you might prefer the vibrant clarity and strength of steel. The most popular strings, however, are made of the hybrid nickel-plated steel, which gives you the best of each material combined together for a versatile sound that suits most genres. Just as important as the material is your choice of gauge. The gauge represents the thickness of the string, with heavier (thicker) gauges giving fuller tones as well as higher sustain and volume through a trade-off of reduced flexibility. Lighter strings, on the other hand, sound brighter and are good for fast, technical guitar work. Since they're more flexible, lighter-gauge strings are easier to fret, which makes them a good choice for beginners as well. For frequently-replaced notes or buying in bulk to stock up a long-term supply, single electric guitar strings can be a lot more economical than sets. Maybe you're moving the strings from a six-string guitar to a seven-string and you need to fill that last notch, or maybe you're customizing your axe with different strings for certain pitches. No matter what reasons you have to look for single strings, it all comes down to what you need and what makes the most sense for you.
