Brian May, on Optima Gold..

As guitarists, and (guitar techs!), we are always looking for a trouble-free life.

The greatest thing you can ask of a guitar string is not to have to worry about it.

In the Old Days, it was a lottery – sure, many times when you put a new guitar string on, you would get a good sound.

But then you would be wondering how long the thing was going to keep it’s crispness, and if it might be the one which was going to lacerate your hand because it’s winding wasn’t quite finished right, or if it would be the one with a weakness, making it snap right in the middle of your most passionate bend!!

Yep – I used to worry, These days, I don’t, Optima Strings have such great quality control, you simply do not get duds.

Every one goes on and gives you a guaranteed zing, which LASTS, until the string is retired because of old age!

And the Gold plating – which might seem at first glance to be a luxury – is in fact an economy.

The gold keeps those gremlins out and disappointments are a thing of the past.

Why Optima Strings? No Worries!
