The A and E strings are plain steel; the C, G, and D strings are roundwound with nickel steel. Sets are available with either loop-end or ball-end strings. You will automatically get ball-end strings unless you specify loop-end. Also be sure to specify the gauge you want.

PRICE: $5 a set, plus shipping.
