We try to be original and honest at Guitar String Depot. We take our own photos whenever we practical, do our own product research, talk to the manufacturers and distributors, compare prices, and compose our own text descriptions for our strings and products. All this is done to give you the best information available about our products, without a lot of hype and cleaver marketing language. When it comes to Augustine strings, we know there is much confusion and mystery about them. The most frequently asked questions are about their string tension values. At this time, Augustine still does not post numerical values for string tension, but only qualitative classifications. When we get real, quantitative tension values, we will post them here. Until then, I hope our presentation of Albert Augustine strings helps you decide if these are the strings for you. My greatest reward is your satisfaction. Gary Shirey, owner Guitar String Depot.
