Do you like your electric guitar to feel as smooth as it sounds? If the answer to that question is "yes," then this selection of flatwound electric guitar strings is definitely the place to be. The difference between flatwound and roundwound strings is just what the name suggests: where a typical string would have a rounded winding wire, a flatwound string has a flattened one instead. This gives the string a much smoother feel under your fingertips, and a smoother sound as well since the string is physically denser and puts out a mellower tone. Those two traits make flatwound strings a big favorite for the jazz community, and plenty of other playing styles as well.
To get an impression of just how popular flatwound strings are in jazz, all it takes is a quick look through the lineup of strings here. There are tons of options, like the Thomastik JS111 Light Flatwound Jazz Swing Electric Guitar Strings and the Black Diamond Pure Jazz Electric Guitar Chromium Flat Wound Strings, that are made especially for that genre. Of course, those are far from your only choices. You could try out a signature set of strings such as the Thomastik GB112 Medium Light George Benson Custom Flatwound Guitar Strings, or maybe tighten up your tone with some stainless steel GHS Precision Flatwound Electric Guitar Strings. It's all up to you.
That's something which can't be overstated when it comes to guitar strings - the decision is in your hands. They're your physical connection with your instrument, and only the right fit will do. For lots of guitarists, that means the best option is a set of flatwound electric guitar strings. So go ahead and take a look at all this section has to offer: if you want a set of strings that's buttery-smooth in more ways than one, you've definitely come to the right place to find it.
