    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.

    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.

    great strings if you don't need to bend...

    I got these for a 24 3/4 scale guitar I have, and they feel & sound great. But the #4 (G) string will NOT bend a full step like an unwound G string. So, I'll have to find an unwound G string the same gauge (.020") to replace the wound one.

    So, if you're looking for an extra light flatwound set, and you don't need to do alot of bending on the #4 string, these are the strings for you. But if you need that extra flexibility, be prepared to replace the G string.
