Kemp Strings Locking 10s are the world’s first equal sensitivity electric guitar strings (based on 0.010 inch gauge for the top E string). Never before have the distances and forces required for pitch bends been more finely matched. Tremolo chords can be bent in tune on the four lowest pitched strings on an instrument with locking nut (such as Floyd Rose®) in standard tuning, something never before possible on such instruments. All strings except the high E take equal force for bending through a given pitch interval. Roundwound with nickel plated steel (a.k.a. Nickel Wound) these strings feature hex cores. Welcome to the next generation of electric guitar strings.
Gauges are 10, 13, 17, 26w, 36w, 46w for standard tuning (with the bottom string being 52w for the Drop D option) with the hex cores and windings carefully selected to give equal sensitivity to pitch bends. These strings deliver sensitivity benefits on all instruments while giving optimum performance for chord bending when using locking nuts.
