Don’t let the diminutive size fool you. Made from chromium-vanadium steel with a laser-cut edge for strong, precise cuts, the Compact String Cutter delivers enough pounds per square inch to cut through just about any string. We even tested it on a .160-gauge bass string, and the cut was fast and clean. This tool will do all the hard work for you—just give it a squeeze, and let that laser-cut edge do its thing. Keep a Compact String Cutter in your gig bag for quicker and easier string changes.
