D'Addario Guitar Strings!

D'Addario's Chromes Flatwound Electric Guitar strings sport stainless steel under-windings on hex cores that build the foundations for their delicate outer ribbon winding. Each string goes through three polishing steps, resulting in a string that feels smooth to the touch. Take it from the Sweetwater's jazz guitar players - D'Addario ECG23 Chromes flatwound guitar strings provide the smooth, mellow tone and flatwound vibe you're looking for.

D'Addario - Making strings for over 300 years

Behind every set of D'Addario strings are over three centuries of fine craftsmanship. The D'Addario family tradition began in the tiny town of Salle, Italy in 1680 where they made assorted instrument strings for over two hundred years before relocating to New York in 1905. As the modern string making industry began to develop, the D'Addario family emerged as innovators by designing the winding machine most string makers still use today. And while their techniques have modernized, the pride that goes into each set of strings dates back to the D'Addario family's earliest roots.

Jazz Gold 4 Me

Just purchased a beautiful Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor ll archtop. The guitar came with regular wound strings, 10s. Since I haven't used flat wound strings since the 1960's I wasn't sure if I would like them after these many years. I purchased a set of these D'Addario Flat Wound strings and WOW. The Jazz tone was incredible and the beauty and rich sound of the guitar really started to shine. I don't like heavy strings and that is why I went with the Extra Light. Couldn't be more pleased. These strings were far better than I had imagined. They are absolutely perfect for my Joe Pass Emperor.

The Best Strings

Great for all music types . Sounds great for Jazz , Rockabilly , Rock .It has just the perfect amount of smoothness , not too smooth like some flat wounds I've played . Just the right amount for all music types . I did not have to make any adjustments to my Epiphone Les Pauls neck or action . Went from .009 to these with 10s with no problems or adjustments . They play and sound like a dream , highly recommended .

Great strings!

Was looking for better strings than the ones that came on my JTV-59; although those weren't bad, they were round wounds. These flats are the same gauge, but much easier on these old fingers, and they sound better on the (rare) occasions I use a bottleneck.If you're having troubles with round wounds, try these. You won't go back.

Great For Gretsch

I use these strings the 1959 model Gretsch Country Gentleman. The strings sound full and warm, they stay in tune and they last well. As always, I got great help from Mike Conyers at Sweetwater.
Music background: Guitar player, singer, studio owner with 50 years of experience

good for acoustic too

I put these on my acoustic/elec Alvarez ad 60 and the sound is pretty good ,it makes the tone slightly darker, but strings still ring out and no mo string noise. Try it out I was surprized.
