WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

"I’ve tried many different brands of strings before being introduced to the cryogenically treated SFARZO strings and I will never go back to using any other strings. The tonal quality out surpasses all the others I’ve ever used or tried. When only the best will do, I use SFARZO brand strings EXCLUSIVELY and proudly endorse these strings with honor!”

– Tiago De Souza

"Sfarzo.. the only strings you need."

– Norman "The Spirit" Greenbaum

"These Sfarzo strings not only sound great and perform wonderfully, the tone lasts for days. I can depend on them at every show and in the studio." 

– Steve Howe of the band YES

         “Sfarzo Strings, you just can’t break ’em!”

– Pat Simmons, The Doobie Brothers – www.thedoobiebrothers.com/

“Sfarzo Guitar strings are amazing! The best strings I’ve used! The coating on them is amazing, it’s strong, bright and durable! They also have a fantastic range for different players. The sound quality is fantastic and the team at Sfarzo are just as great and as user friendly as the strings!”

“The Sfarzo Bass Strings are fantastic too! They have great character, are bright yet have a well rounded sound! They are a great continuation of the Sfarzo format of Electric & Acoustic strings and I would highly recommend them!”

– Lee Royle, Prose – www.prosemusic.com

I love the strings that I purchased for my 3 electric guitars. The SFT Screamers .009's and the King Headbanger KH50 - .009's are fantastic!!! My band Teeze will be opening up for Gene Simmons May 3rd at the Arcada Theater in St Charles, IL and when I see Gene, I'm going to mention what a great (and local) guitar/bass string company you guys operate.

– William Bhullar 

“I’m happy to say that Sfarzo Guitar Strings have breathed new life into my guitar playing. Handmade strings with a quality, feel, tuning reliability and clarity of tone are a no brainer for me – no matter what type of music I’m playing. I’m glad I’ve made the change to Sfarzo, I won’t be looking back!

– Chris Walton – www.chriswaltonmusic.bandcamp.com/releases

“I started using Sfarzo SFT Screamers 11 years ago. They are the best I have ever played, I don't want to switch brands ever again. And believe it or not, Sfarzos never break. Only two (2!) strings broke in all that time of 11 years, amazing."

– Manuel and SOLAR FRAGMENT

“Love these stings only down side is they last a long damn time so i never see the need to change them out. If your looking for a great set of strings that sound,play, feel great check them out."

– Ray Vidal

“I came across Sfarzo strings by chance at a trade fair and bought a couple of packets to try. As a guitarist i’m looking for strings that produce a quality evenness of tone, feel great and inspire me to play. Sfarzo V strings certainly do that! There’s no going back now”!

– John McAlpine

Used a set of Sfarzo Strings at last nights gig and they felt fantastic! Great tuning too. Probably the third time in my 50 years of playing that I’ve felt a string brand has made a difference to my playing.Thank you,I’ll be back!

– Jim Keilt

I strung my main guitar with them and used it exclusively for the duration of the rehearsal and was immediately struck with how bright the Sfarzo strings are. I’ve used every conceivable set over the years and found that the ones that retain their character for any length of time, and consistently stay in tune, are few and far between. I change my strings for every gig and I expect the feel and response of the strings to be consistent from the first song to the last one and, after a three hour rehearsal last night, the Sfarzo strings delivered!

 

– Brian Rawson

“Being a musician and guitar shop owner its hard to get excited about ‘new strings’ as I see and try so many different brands, all good but all much the same. Then I found Sfarzo, I loaded my gretsch and wow, instant noticeable feel and resonance. When your keyboard player asks ‘whats different’ you know there is something very different. Returning customers are converted and they’ve brought many an old acoustic a new lease of life without breaking the bank! They even ping out of the packet with excitement”!

Amp Guitar Shop

– Chris Insley, Amp Guitars, Macclesfield

“After working through the many Bass strings I have access to, I still have the Sfarzo strings on my Precision, no reason to change. Love them. My favourite rounds”.

– Mark, Electro Music, Doncaster


“I’ve tried all the string brands, and can honestly say I’d be very happy using any of them! Heard about Sfarzo SFT’s with higher iron content and I could tell even when I was restringing the guitar that these were a different class…..straight away there was an extra zest to to feel and sustain, and even little riffs I’d often get wrong were now easier…….!! Brilliant strings, the best I’ve tried, highly recommended.”

The SFT 11’s are now ‘my string.’ Tried them all but the SFT’s just feel alive in your hands…awesome” 

– Rick Manning, Marvel Guitars, Timperley

“I have stopped using E*****r now, i’m completely on Sfarzos!”

– Louis Davey, EES Music, Ipswich

I recently bought some of your strings through MusicStreet-UK. I’ve put a set of Blues on a PRS Archtop and some Regulars on an old Standard 22 stoptail and they sound fantastic ! They’ve got a really sweet tone, full of body and bite where needed. They also stretched in really quick !. Next job will be some SFT Screamers on my Crimson Guitars S-Type. I’m converted !

– David Harman

“Very, very good – balance excellent, harmonics abound all over the fretboard, string bending was superb, as was the feel – very slick. You can get them to howl beautifully. Output was noticeably higher to the extent that I had to reduce my pre-amp settings to avoid over driving. The lower tension makes playing much easier. Also, importantly for me, they have lasted well. The difference in the sound of these strings compared to any others I have ever used is pronounced. Rich tones from bass to treble and a unique character of their own improved about 80% of the patches on my rig without adjustment. I have never had another string which has had such a pronounced change in the sound and playability of my guitar (bought circa 1979).
They spoil you for anything else, and they make you think you’re a much better guitarist than you are”!
– Chaz
“Thanks a lot for pointing me towards these V-strings, I just had great fun playing them for the first time.
I’m lucky to play an excellent T-style guitar, resonant en musical … but I hadn’t heard it like this before, to be honest.
Of course we’re talking percentages, but still it’s an obvious step up for me.
First impressions: vivid without being too punchy, a little silky, warm, very musical, inspiring to play, good output, easy to bend.
FUN!
I’m definitely taking these to my guitar shop. I’m hooked”.

– Peter V Cas

I had been using ********* pure nickels (11 – 48) for a while, but what frustrated me about them was the G string, compared to the B & E strings was noticeably louder! so when playing these three strings I was compensating by striking the B & E strings slightly harder. My Compressor didn’t even out this difference in volume. ANYWAY…..THIS PROBLEM IS NOW CURED.  The sound level from ALL of the strings, when played is EVEN. Sfarzo V’s are a joy to play! That in itself has convinced that I have at last found the strings for me. String noise is really much lower and the general playability is also so much better. ITS A WIN WIN STRING!! LOL Many thanks for now Bob

– Bob Longhurst

“I installed a set of your pure nickel strings on Les Paul and was immediately positively impressed. I have played guitar for over 40 years.
I liked the tonality a lot and the V strings give me a clear and powerful sound.
Also, the strings feels nice under my fingers (I can’t explain) and they stay completely in tune, even when I twang them sometimes very heavily”.
– Asko Kavala

“I have used Alloy 5109’s, Nickelanium’s and Phosphor Bronze Acoustics on all my guitars for years since my guitar tutor recommended them to me as a teenager. I love them, great price, cool branding, never break, sound awesome, great for bends”.

– Henry Tanner

“Hi just sending feedback on sfarzo bass strings I purchased from you at guitar show in Urmston. Put them on Jazz Bass and blown away by improved tone and volume. Best strings I’ve ever had on my Bass”.

– Tom Morgan

“Used Sfarzo strings for the first time at a gig last night. Amazing. They kept their tune better, felt better and have better tone than anything I have used before. I recommend that you get some of these”.

– Mike Grubert

“I have re-strung with your strings and am very  impressed!”

– Judd Lufthouse


“My philosophy to how strings sound is much the same as it is for how they feel ie; I don’t want them to sound wildly different to strings that have been on for a couple of days, I just want them to be consistent and sound as I expect”.

“Yes I would have to say I still prefer my Thomastik Infeld Blues Sliders, but then they do cost 3 times the price so taking that in to account, considering I change strings on my main guitar every week, that’s a big consideration. Yours are priced similarly to the standard D’addario, Ernie Ball, Rotosound etc and I would place them leagues ahead of all those”. 

“High end performance for budget string price”.

– Adam Rogers


I got the strings this morning in the post, great fast shipping! And i can safely say, i absolutely love them! After tuning down and back up again multiple times, the strings keep the same great sound. They keep in tune very well and are really nice to play!

– Jamie Johnson

“Your strings are my answer since a while, and no need to say that they are amazing. They hold my sound so well, incredible sustain and precision, and seeing the way I pull on them sometimes, it seems that they rarely break. Have a great day/night”.

 – Chris Menta

“Your strings are the bomb ……… Where have I been all these years …. I got the so called “Jimi” set, these blow everything else away ……. I will order more this week Blues and Bass sets. Yes I want to endorse your strings. What do you want …. My first born? Let me know.

 – Ernest B

“I used to use ___ Low Tune .011-.058 and discovered Sfarzo some months ago while looking around on Juststrings.com I was a bit curious, so I picked up 3 sets of Screamers along with my usual __ brand. I wasn’t expecting such a big gap in quality!

The Screamers are sounding much more balanced and bright, with lots of sustain and bottom! Also very durable! I tried ___, _____ ____, ________, and I must tell Sfarzo are the best strings I put on my axe so far. The new album will be out in March, followed by a promo tour and I want the really best for my guitar. That’s why I would be proud to become part of the great Sfarzo Artists Family!

– Julien Huyssens of the band ANWYNN

“I bought a pack of your strings from Tall Toad in Petaluma. I immediately went home and strung up the old tele … love the strings!! I’ve been a huge fan of Thomastik Power Bights for about 10 years now; but these are my new number one! Thanks for providing the world with dyno-mite strings!!”
