Coated Strings Never Sounded Better!

Coated strings last longer, but they also sound dead. Cleartone Electric Strings are coated, and they sound great. Thanks to Cleartone Strings and their EMP technology, coated strings sound better than ever. Cleartone's EMP (Enhanced Molecular Protection) is a patent pending process that extends the string's life by protecting it against oils from your hands, elements in the air, and just general string deterioration. EMP coating doesn't feel slick or slippery, and it won't flake off. You won't even know it is there. In a nut shell, it helps your strings stay fresh and clean without killing your tone.

Cleartone Strings uses only the finest nickel plated steel windings over a hex core. This combination gives you the best pickup response on your electric guitar and consistent sound.

Cleartone Electric Guitar Strings with EMP Coating Features:
  • EMP coating gives string longer life without killing the tone
  • Longer-lasting than conventional strings
  • Nickel-plated steel windings
  • .010, .013, .017, .026, .036, .046
Save time and money with Cleartone Electric Strings with EMP coating!

New Favorite Strings

I typically use Ernie Ball Slinky 10's and then I saw lots of guys starting to use them and how great they sound. I sweat a lot so I have to change string quite often and hadnt ever had a coated string that I liked. The coating is phenomenal and feels great (I can barely feel it) nor has it changed to tone of my guitar at all. I don't understand why they were given 2 or 3 stars by that other guy when he didn't even give any real reason besides that he didn't like them. I guarantee that you will love these if you are looking for a great coated string.

Better than Elixirs

I've been using Elixirs for the last 4-5 years on all of my guitars. I'm a sweaty palm dude and once you get past the two guitar threshold, laziness kicks in and the last thing you want to do is add frequent string changing to your list of chores. For 3 of those years I also played out every weekend and needed strings that would last. I tried these out at the recommendation of a colleague, and no kidding - I'm blown away. The output and sustain claims compared to other coated strings (aka Elixir) are legit and not just marketing bs. Also, my Strat has low end and presence like it's never had before. As far as feel goes, compared to Elixirs, they feel very "matte". You don't feel any slippery coating. They feel like regular strings, but slightly "drier" if that makes any sense. Whether or not this matters to you is personal preference. The only reason why this doesn't get a 5 star rating is because I don't like how my strings came packaged - mine were all bundled together and a pain to untangle. My high E got a little bent as a result. That was annoying considering that these are roughly twice the price of regular string that do come individually packaged. I know it's not as environmentally friendly, but some recycled paper separating each string would be a welcome change. Bottom line - if you come from the coated string world like me, you'll be very pleasantly surprised. If you've always played uncoated strings, you'll be less impressed, but they are still awesome and worth the money.

Not what I expected.

Wanted to give these a try after reading reviews stating how much better these are compared to Elixirs. They're not bad strings, but I prefer my Elixirs or D'addarios over these.


They sound great but they didn't last more than 2 days with out rusting. Though no other string has besides elixirs.


First pack, no high-E. Second pack, high-E broke. Not worth the premium price. Stick to Ernie. This is by NO MEANS a reflection of Sweetwater...y'all been great!
