The core is the pulse of our string. It’s the heartbeat. We pull our high-carbon steel core to the optimum playing tension producing a string that opens up smoother and holds its tone longer. One of the most reliable string brands available
Black Diamond Strings has a rich heritage. Black Diamond has been making instruments sound their very best since 1890. Just ask your older brother, your uncle, your father, or even your grandparents. Chances are, they played Black Diamond and can tell you some great stories. It’s a fact... if there’s music in the roots of your family tree, there’s a Black Diamond story resting in the branches.
Made with a high-carbon steel hex core and wrapped with USA alloy blend wrap wire, our Bronze, Silver and Nickel strings provide excellent tonal quality with a high degree of tuning stability.
