Thread: PRS Strings

  1. #1

    Red face PRS Strings

    I bought a PRS guitar and took advantage of the free string offer. Just received them and was wondering if anyone has any experience with the PRS strings as to quality, sound, etc. I got the 10-46 sets.

    PRS strings come on your guitar. You already know.

    They actually don't, they have come from the factory with D'addario strings.

    Pretty sure D'Addario makes PRS strings... I could be wrong.

    Jon is correct (unless it's changed recently), almost positive that PRS strings are just relabeled D'Addarios.

    Interesting! I just received a couple packs of PRS strings in the mail. Funny thing is that I use D'Addario strings and was looking forward to trying something different! Ah well..

    At least you know you'll like them, right? That's why they sound so good from the factory! (to be fair, I'm a fan of D'Addarios, personally )

    I have heard the same about D'Addario strings. I do know that D'Addario strings normally have the colored ball ends and PRS strings have black ball ends. Plus PRS strings are pure nickel wrap.

    To add to what Jamie said, the nickel wrap gives them a softer feel, and a bit different tone, though the difference isn't huge. I really like them, they're all I use.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Yah, the pure nickel wrap mellows them a bit and all the PRS strings have the brass ball end I believe.

    Looks like the only place you can get them is direct from the PRS on line store at $9 per pak. I checked all the normal places and no one carries them.

    I use PRS strings on all my guitars (Strats, Teles and SE). I think they're great. They seem to last a bit longer than D'Addarios.
