This is THE legendary flatwound jazz guitar string! A list of its players reads like a Jazz Hall of Fame, and it's still the undisputed king of flatwounds, for many of today's jazz greats. A true flatwound (not a "ground wound" or "compressed wound" like some of the pretenders) with glassy smooth polished nickel winding on a round core, it has the perfect balance of fundamental to overtones required for traditional jazz. These strings have a mellow timbre and powerful sound, designed especially for semi acoustic and acoustic jazz guitars. Some players claim that its mellow, powerful tones actually improve with age!
Gauges: .011; .015; .019w; .025; .035; .047

  • Guitar String Set

I would buy this product again


These strings are great sounding and feel good to the fingers.



Too bad Sam Ash no longer sells them!


I use these strings on both my 1955 Gibson ES-175 and my 1971 Martin D-35. I used to buy a dozen sets at a time at samash.com but I understand that they are no longer sold here. What a shame!
