Additional Information

The first “E” steel string made its first appearance around 1910. The steel string only gained prominence during World War II due to the scarceness of sheep gut. Steel “E” strings were never wound because of the thin gauge to create the sound. They were known to have an undesirable “Tingy” or metallic quality that lacked the richness of a typical gut string.
