These are some smooth-playing strings! These strings are excellent for jazz as well as any flowing lead that does not include heavy bending. There is no comparison as to the reduction of friction when playing with these strings as compared to playing with regular wound strings. If you get annoyed by the squeeking or slipping sounds with other strings then these are the strings for you! They play smoothly and without any residual sound from your fingers sliding across the strings while playing great lead lines. I would not use these strings if I were playing lead with a lot of heavy bending as they are a little stiff. If you haven't tried these strings at least once I would most definitely recommend them!

First off, these strings feel incredible. You can play them for hours on end and you fingers will never get sore. If you are looking for a great rhythm guitar crunchy distortion kind of sound, then these are the strings for you. They also stay in tune for a really long time, and, in my experience, didn't have to be stretched as much when I first put them on. The problem I had with them is that if you play an electric guitar with double coil, they have too much harsh sounding midrange for jazz and blues. If you have a single coil, I would assume they would sound pretty good. These strings are very very dark, but to each his own I say try them out there worth a shot but be warned they are not very versatile.

Comments about D'Addario XL Chromes Jazz Light Electric Guitar Strings ECG24 Flatwound:

So I loved the strings but while I was returning the G string to standard tuning the string broke on me, the other strings are amazingly strong, heck, I remember e gave me a cut. But I would love if they made G more high pitch and bendable, cause I can't bend it as Ernie Ball's strings

    Comments about D'Addario XL Chromes Jazz Light Electric Guitar Strings ECG24 Flatwound:

    I've been playing guitar for many years, and have tried a wide variety of strings. Some of this and some of that. Whatever hit my fancy at the time. I recently put a set of the #11 Chromes on my Joe Pass Emperor and it was love at first sight. The feel is amazing and I have a clarity of tone that just never was there before. I move up and down the neck a lot in my playing and the flatwounds eliminate all the nasty noises that I used to get. I am primarily a jazz player and these strings are my go to set from here on out. Can't say enough nice stuff about these. Just wish I would've gone to 'em sooner. Oh well, better late than not at all!

      The value and the quality are unparalleled. The tone I get from these strings is amazing compared to others that cost four times more. It does what it says, the tone is warm and mellow.

      Great Set of Strings if Tone is Your Goal

      By chris lucas

      from Chicago, IL

      Comments about D'Addario XL Chromes Jazz Light Electric Guitar Strings ECG24 Flatwound:

      I'm a music student and I've done just about everything to become a better player. As a result, I'm not afraid to try new products. So I decided switch out my D'addario Nickel 10s for these chromes and I'm in love with the results! I've constantly been searching for a mellow, jazz tone and I finally got it with these strings. An added bonus is the elimination of "string talk" due to the chrome material in the strings. Great, clean sound and extra sustain. What's not to love?! Well there's a drawback. I love the Mahavishnu Orchestra and Jeff Beck and they use string bends like no tomorrow. There's no bending to be found past the b-string with these strings. Since I'm learning jazz right now it's not an issue, but if you want this tone and bending then I would highly recommend the extra light Chrome 10s. Otherwise, these are a great set.

      They say jazz, but i think they should say metal.

      By Graham Peeples

      from Greenville, SC

      Comments about D'Addario XL Chromes Jazz Light Electric Guitar Strings ECG24 Flatwound:

      I bought a couple packs of these one day just to try something different (I had actually gotten the 12-52s but they dont have those online.) . I used to be using DR strings, and a really heavy set of em at that. I think it was a 12-60, but after i slapped these on, I'm all D'addario for my electric now. These things give an amazing warm tone, they are pretty slick, and they last forever. I've had the same set on for about two months now I think, and they still sound just like new, compared to my DR's which would lose their tone and get all rusty after a month. The best thing about these strings though, is that for how light gauge they are, they drop tune like a boss. Keep in mind I'm using a 12 to 52 set, but the ones I have let me go into drop Bb with ease, and even drop A without worrying about my strings goin all spaggetti on me. These strings are light gauge, but they have some dang heavy cores that give them the warm tone that I love, as well as the ability to drop tune for the metal i play. Awesome strings. just buy em.

      not worth the money

      By Blues Player

      from Connecticut

      Comments about D'Addario XL Chromes Jazz Light Electric Guitar Strings ECG24 Flatwound:

      They aren't the price for a few reasons but while the smoothness of the string is great the string have a very limited sound and if you're a blues player i'd suggest if your going to get these string that you put on a lower guage g and b string because it slows down your playing when bends are required. If your a metal player i suggest a differt XL set because they dont sound well with distortion.

      Nice Sound but Terrible for Staying In Tune

      By mcpugsta

      from Austin, TX

      Comments about D'Addario XL Chromes Jazz Light Electric Guitar Strings ECG24 Flatwound:

      I bought these strings thinking they might stay in tune better and remove the annoying squeaking. It removed the squeaking but as far as staying in tune they are terrible. I put these on three weeks ago and they still go out of tune from minor bends. I'm personally going back to regular D'Addario's.
