Pack of six Burswood Acoustic Steel Guitar Strings and a pick for only 75P!

In a reduced section at Asda Morley, so no idea if Nationwide but still a great deal. I know that Home Bargains sell the same set in different packaging for £2.99, so Asda have trumped a bargain shop this time!

Can't find much info online but found a site (where the picture came from) which sells the same pack for $15.99 each.

Had at least two boxes full of these. about 50 packs in each box, all Steel.

May not be Jimi Hendrix quality but will do fine for beginners like me!

This site is so strange!

Was given an old acoustic yesterday and thought i should order strings so i did earlier. Now this deal pops up....

Not the first time this has happened.

Are you lot watching me waiting for me to order stuff then finding a better deal!!? Shame on you ;)

I disagree that they'll do well for beginners. One of the last thing a beginner needs is poor strings producing a horrible crappy sound that need tuning every 5 minutes. It's irritating and demotivating.

Get yourself some Ernie Ball guitar strings - Less than £5 delivered, stay in tune for ages, and sound good. Further to that, they have a lot of longevity to them, like Elixir's I've found. It's money well invested, and it doesn't break the bank either.

I just bought some Ernie Ball Earthwoods for my acoustic , I had no idea Asda did Guitar Strings ? Might pick up some for spares , which section do you think these would be found in ?
In the picture there is an electric .

Only use in an emergency.
Get a decent brand for playing.
Ernie Balls are fine by the way..

Ernie Balls indeed, no point skimping on strings for the sake of your fingers.

Get some Fender Bullets - sound fab on acoustics! £4.00/£5 a set or thereabouts.

Ok if you have a car to tow.... or an excess of cheese :whistling:

I used to use Ernie Ball and Dean Markley until a buddy turned me on to Elixirs - due to their extra long life, I think they would be ideal for beginners (or those who are lazy, like me, and don't change their strings as often as they should). With that string coating they also play easier and have little string drag when playing up and down the neck - they're a lot of fun.

EDIT as above, I would only keep these on hand for emergency or for my junk, no-name campfire guitar

After playing guitar for over 25 years (gigging & session work) and having tried just about every make of strings/guitars/tunings I can state it makes no difference if you stick £1.99 cheapos or £15 elixirs on. It's all in the fingers, literally. Some people have acidic sweat which will eat away at the materials in the strings....best thing to do is get a product like fast fret which cleans the strings after playing.

Cheaper strings cost less because the quality of the winding etc, isn't the same as top branded strings (try DR strings for hand wound strings) but there is no difference in the quality of sound produced.

Haven't tried these myself, usually just stick to Martin and ErnieB, but 75p for strings and a pick? Helluva price! H+R big man!

Hmmm, I would totally disagree with that statement you claim to have been playing/gigging for 25 years? And can not tell the difference between types of strings?? :? Tonality/playability between strings differs greatly.

Cheap strings are often slightly rough to the touch which can leave your fingers sore and will not stay in tune for more than a couple of plays and will suffer warp much more quickly than a decent set of strings.

I'm not a string snob by any means a nice set of Ernie's will do fine for most but not forgetting the type and quality of guitar you are using makes a huge difference.

I agree that a decent player can make anything sound great I mean take Seasick Steve for instance he makes all his "junk" guitars and manages to produce some good sounds but I bet he doesn't use 75p strings.

Anyway ranting on a bit here but ok they are cheap and will be ok if you are desperate but really it's worth investing that little bit extra and get something decent we are only talking sub £5 here not £50.

Okay...so I knew someone would come back with a witty rejoinder to my comments.

Sooo...I actually managed to track down a couple of sets of these and stuck them on my Lowden O23, my Flyde Oberon and my Martin 1970s D25.

No difference to the tone quality from the strings (elixir and martin) that were taken off both to my ears and once recorded and listened back to anyone elses.

As for playing quality - no issues either - the windings are a little bright for my taste but I'm sure given a little while to bed in they will be better.

As a closing statement Mr d_dixon how dare you or anyone disagree with my comment I have been playing or gigging for 25 years. Or my ability to tell the difference between strings. I can tell the difference - I stated that there is no difference to the tone or playability.

The same problem as golf - to many people think it's all in buying a new guitar/set of string/ a new driver or a new putter. It's the Indian not the arrows people.

Any thoughts on whether fastfret gunks up the fretboard? Is it ok for both RW and Maple?
#15
A light wipe up and down the length of the strings followed by a clean with a fresh cloth is usually a good amount for fast fret....Maple FB's are usually finished and it won't affect...for Rosewood I would give a clean about once every 6 months with lemongrass oil. Just my presonal choice.
