The String That Started It All ™
Black Diamond Strings® are carefully crafted with passion and precision. A high-carbon steel core wire is pulled to optimum playing tension, then wound with high-grade wrap wire. The specially designed ratio of these two elements combined with pitch and tension controllers creates an exquisite string design - one that we humbly believe produces perfect sound every time it's played! • Mission • The 1988 commission of Al Hendrix established The James Marshall Hendrix Foundation to continue the legacy his son gave to the world: Peace, Love and Music.
