DR Legend extra life


from Bellevue, Idaho

I have used DR Legend strings for a number of years now on my electric guitars and have had no problems with them. They have a warm sound that I like for jazz and blues as well as the old style rock and no squeeks when I run the neck. If you prefer a twangier sound then they aren't for you. They also last longer then a round wound.

A good compromise.

By William Konietzny

from San Andreas, California

There shouldn't be any controversy about whether or not flatwound strings are less bright than roundwounds. Quite simply, they're not. You have to weigh this against the fact that the smooth profile eliminates string squeak, reduces fret wear and increases string life. If you're playing jazz, brightness is generally not important. If you're playing Country these are probably not for you. Everything in between is discretionary. I've read reviews that claim this brand is gritty compared to others. Perhaps the grit was on their fingers as I found them as smooth as the D'Addarios I've used.
