Kemp Strings are the brand new concept in guitar string design allowing for equal sensitivity for tremolo arm movements and for conventional pitch bends. That means in tune chords can be bent on the four lowest pitch strings. The first sets of electric guitar strings, optimised for standard Strat® were first released in June 2019, with 9s and 11s optimised for Strat® and 10s optimised for locking systems now available from this website by clicking Shop.

Kemp Strings are made in the UK and have been designed through research carried out at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. The underlying research has been published in the peer reviewed science journal PLOS ONE:
Kemp JA (2017) The physics of unwound and wound strings on the electric guitar applied to the pitch intervals produced by tremolo/vibrato arm systems. PLOS ONE 12(9): e0184803
