SIT Strings

About SIT Strings

Akron, Ohio

We believe that great tone starts with great strings. S.I.T. (Stay In Tune) Strings was founded on a belief that a guitar string is more than just an accessory, but rather an integral part of a musicians sound and voice. That is why, since 1980, we have been manufacturing strings one at a time, all here at the S.I.T. strings factory in Akron, Ohio.

All of the products on this website are manufactured with the highest quality materials to deliver organic tone, great feel, and tuning stability. For these reasons and more, musicians across the world from the garage to the stage have relied on our strings for over 35 years.

We constantly strive to stay in tune to the unique needs of the many talented musicians who use our products. Feedback from professional guitar and bass payers, guitar techs, bass techs, and even students and teachers is vital. With that in mind, feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions or feedback.
