D'Addario XL Chromes Jazz Light Electric Guitar Strings ECG24 Flatwound
The D'Addario XL Chromes Jazz Light electric guitar strings ECG24 Flatwound provide a velvety smooth tone perfect for jazz and other genres where a warm, round sound is desired. Made of nickel-plated steel, these flatwound strings have a flattened surface that produces little to no finger noise when sliding up and down the neck. The result is a tone that is rich, full and evenly balanced across all six strings. The XL Chromes Jazz Light strings are designed for musicians seeking a traditional jazz guitar tone with a playing feel to match.
Flatwound Construction Provides a Smooth, Noise-Free Performance
The ECG24 Flatwound strings feature D'Addario's flatwound construction, where the string windings are polished to a smooth, flat surface. This eliminates the ridges found on roundwound strings that can produce string noise during sliding techniques. The flat surface allows for faster, slicker slides and a velvety tone with enhanced sustain and clarity. For jazz guitarists, the noise free performance and old school tone of flatwound strings are essential. The XL Chromes Jazz Light flatwound strings deliver on both counts.
Light Gauge for Comfort and Playability
The ECG24 Flatwound strings provide a comfortable playing feel for most guitarists. The lighter tension makes it easy to play barre chords, bend notes and perform other techniques without straining your fingers. Despite the lighter gage, these strings still produce a full, balanced tone across all six strings thanks to their high-quality materials and construction. For jazz guitarists seeking a blend of comfort, tone and playability, the XL Chromes Jazz Light flatwound strings are an ideal choice.
High-Quality Materials for Enhanced Tone and Longevity
Made of nickel-plated steel, the ECG24 Flatwound strings are built to last while providing a rich, balanced tone. The nickel plating helps reduce string corrosion for enhanced longevity and consistency. String breakage is also minimized thanks to precision winding and core to wrap ratios. Overall, these high-quality flatwound strings provide a tone and performance that stands up to the demands of regular practice and performance. For musicians on a budget, the XL Chromes Jazz Light strings are an affordable option with professional level quality and are available today at Guitar Center.
