Sometimes the difference between the ordinary and the very best is a lot of money, but that's not the case with Optima guitar strings. Costing just a little more, Optima strings are coated in 24 carat gold. The combination of the finest laboratory steel and precious metal results in full corrosion protection for extended life and a crystal clear tone with harmonious sustain.
Optima Guitar Strings History
Max Gottlieb Meinel started his business as a string maker in East Germany. He called the company Maxima and later relocated to Bavaria where he soon settled well and used his craftsmanship to produce fine products. Maxima became the best -selling brand in Germany but took things to another level during the 1960's with the introduction of gold strings. The aim had been simple – to produce long lasting strings that looked brilliant and sounded even better.
Optima Gold Strings
Optima guitar strings are made in Germany using the highest quality materials. The company has been producing fine strings for 75 years and so Optima have had plenty of time to perfect the exceptional range. The gold plated strings are up to 3 times more durable than regular strings and are ideal for musicians who are allergic to nickel or stainless steel. There is nothing to beat the golden sound and smooth feel of Optima strings which are the favourites of many stars including Brian May and Frank Zappa.
