Perfect match


I installed them myself which was quite simple, the sound and feel of these strings is absolutely amazing! They're louder and more vibrant than the previous strings I had on my Les Paul junior model, and I'd definitely buy these strings again.



Simply the best!


Love them! The only flatwound string I use. They seem to last forever and their tone is exactly what I'm looking for. Warm, but not overly wooly and with a hint of high-end ting. D'Addario's consistency is the best!

Future customer


The best part was the personal service I received. Not necessarily with this purchase because this was pretty easy. But he took extra time with me showing ukeleles. And explaining all about the different sizes.



I would buy it again and again.


Use it on a arch top jazz guitar. Great strings!



Plays like butter


I was slicing my fingers up on some old round-wound strings and replaced them with these, now it plays like butter.



The industry standard


These are definatly the best flats I've used. Very easy on the fingers and frets, and the tone lasts forever. Seem to be more consistent than other flats costing much more.

Building tone with the addition of Chrom


[...] Since the store did not have the Epiphone, I took a chance and bought the Epiphone ES-175 online and got it from FedEx on a Saturday!!!!!This guitar plays extremely well. I read a few reviews and noticed a lot of people changed strings to flat wound strings, so I bought a set and re-strung the guitar. I am not going to go into too much detail, but the feel and tone blended together nicely.I make it a habit to practice for about an hour per day. I change strings often. If I break one, typically I change the whole set. Since these are more expensive, I will have to bite the bullet when I make my monthly change or I will delay my change a week or two.Word to the wise- If you own multiple instruments, write down on a calendar the guitar you are re-stringing and the brand of strings you used (including the gauges). Good string cleaning after each use will make a world of difference.




The strings I never knew I always wanted


One day, while shoping for strings to replace a Zakk Wylde set of string I never even tried to play on (too bright), I saw the Chromes. I've always been a huge fan of D'Addario's products and the Chromes, with their ribbon (flat) winding seemed like something I'd like. So I bought them. I can safely say that for my own personal tone and for just pure enjoyment, I will use no other strings. The Chromes are beyond wonderful. The start out super slick and very comfortable. I use a little Fast Fret and they are almost non-exsistant on fret changes. No squeal. Easy on the fingers. They are a much mellower string. Not nearly as bright as a round wound string. They are also much stiffer to bend in my opinion. One set is on my hardtail Strat with a single humbucker. Another is on a Epiphone Les Paul Gothic with factory liscensed Floyd Rose tremolo. On the Strat, they are very clear and punchy. On the paul, when tuned way down, they are alittle sloppy. I tuned it BEADF#B initially, but think that the next heavier set of strings would be better. These strings would probably be best no lower than C. All in all, short of having a guitar for a specifc sound (in other words, not my own tone) I wouldn't use anything else. These are simply the nicest strings I've used, even including the numerous other sets of D'Addario strings I've used. Occasionally I'll try something else, and I always come right back to D'Addario.
