We design and produce the highest quality, longest lasting strings,…superior tone, great feel in your hands, strings that stay in tune and perform longer than other brands.
More Than A Century of String Making
We have been the only maker of strings for Steinway and Sons Pianos (and basically every other piano) for more than 100 years AND we have been producing the core and wrap wire for most of the guitar string industry for decades. We have also wound strings for other guitar string brands for decades. However, too often the true craft of good string winding eventually gets sacrificed to cost savings or just sent off-shore and discarded. With American String we control the entire process and never sacrifice the design or quality of the end-product that you put on your instruments.
The Real Magic of String Making!
The market is full of promises of mystical string design or a new space-age material that will improve your tone or the performance of a string. We love innovation but it is highly likely that those claims are simply marketing hype. The real magic is in:
- The highest quality source metal (we use only superior American steel),
- Advanced manufacturing technologies that we use in our own wire mills, and
- Generations of expertise and innovative manufacturing processes to wind strings for your guitars by our craftsmen right here in the United States of America.
