Touchtones: Cryogenically treated strings are metallurgically enhanced as the process helps to tighten the structure of the alloy resulting in a reduction of surface roughness and an increase in structural durability. They hold their pitch for a clear sound that can be felt and heard.



V- Strings: Hand wrapped, hand wound and hand made. Our vintage technology is focused on that old vintage sound for the 60's and 70's. Maximum output, harmonic response, and ultimate flexibility with higher nickel content! A specially designed alloy combines several other components for extra long life, durability, and low fret-wear.



SFT Screamers: Hard rock to heavy metal, these strings have higher iron content which allows the string to sustain longer with louder output. Also known for their long life while maintaining their tone., SFT’s are the favorite string for our hard rocking artists.

"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... the only strings you need." - Norman "The Spirit" Greenbaum

“I am delighted to be using Sfarzo strings and after 3 solid 7 hour days of rehearsing, the strings remain true and clear. Even the lighter strings have the authority that i would normally associate with something heavier.” Terence Reis, the Dire Straits Experience –

"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

“Hi there. I’ve recently discovered Sfarzo strings. What can I say, wow!! Strings – I’ve tried them all over the years – some great, some not so great and others just plain awful. Sfarzo strings are the best I’ve used to date, and I am now using these exclusively on my guitars (SFT Screamers). They sounds great, feel great and seem to last longer than any other strings I’ve tried.” Simon Rogers, Ghost Community

“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!" Chris Insley, Amp Guitars, Macclesfield 

“We purchased six dozen sets for our store and turned them on to customers. The strings are so great I now use them on my personal guitar.” Billy Garoutte, Silly Strings Guitar Shop, Petaluma
