ogasunあれこれ About ogasun #23


Recently, I haven't been playing the guitar much, but I was looking at the site of a S・・ house to get rid of the interface and so on. I was surprised that the price of instruments and equipment was raised so much. Prices for guitar strings have gone up by 20-30%.



Ogasun also owns several guitars, so I always have spare strings. As for the steel strings, I mainly use Martin's phosphor brones strings, and sometimes I use D'Addario strings after discussing the price. When I think back to when I was a student, each guitar manufacturer produced strings, and there were no coated strings yet. I was trying different strings from different manufacturers to try out the tone and durability. I wonder if the strings I used for the main back then were machin? It was probably a normal bronze string. I feel that the price was quite high at 1200 to 1800 yen per set of light gauge. It reminds me of how I used to save money on food and replace strings before a live performance. You also used a bluegrass gauge for a while. Even though strings have gone up in price now, are they still cheap compared to those days? .
