These sets now have a new core material which is more tearproof which improves the tuning stability significantly.

Talk about smooth...these strings are 24K gold coated and they look and sound fantastic.

24K gold coated guitar strings are insensitive to tarnishing or corrosion.  These strings will never rust and will last up to 3x longer than normal strings.
Also, they are perfect for people that have an allergy to nickel!  

Developed and handmade in Germany from the finest materials and for highest tonal demands. This series reflects Optima's 90-year tradition of string manufacture. The result is a string of unmatched premium quality.   GOLD STRINGS are characterized by a brilliant sound and the typical SOUND OF GOLD, which was loved by John Entwistle. Brian May also uses these on his guitars 

Double-ball versions can be made on request, just contact us HERE

    These strings are awesome! Originally purchased the gold plated strings to match my black & gold telecaster. To my surprise, they are so smooth to the touch and sound amazing to me. Will definitely get em again.

    Posted by David Fratella on Jul 24th 2020

    Besides the fact that the strings add a completely new great look, these strings have a richer fuller sound offering a distinct flavor ,so to speak, I have not heard from other strings.

    WOW! Great strings that have not gone out of tune since I replaced my old strings. The sound quality is superb both in studio recordings as well as in live concert performances. 5 Star. I highly recommend these.
