D'Addario Chrome Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings are revered for their warm tone and ultra-smooth feel. Stainless steel underwindings on hex cores build a foundation for the delicate outer ribbon winding. After the winding is applied, each string goes through 3 polishing steps. Great for classic jazz tone and rockabilly twang.

D'Addario's environment-friendly string packaging does away with the nylon plastic outer envelope, paper insert, and paper envelopes for each string. The strings come inside a 100% recyclable cardboard package that inhibits string corrosion.

D'Addario environmental string sets are now being made with new, brighter colored ball ends. The colored ball ends are specially coated with a new paint (green, red, purple...) that is easily recognizable and makes it even easier for you to identify each string.

    Comments about D'Addario ECG23 Chrome Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

    I primarily play rhythm and need a heavy bottom sounding set of strings without actually having heavy strings. I was playing D'Addario EXL 110's as well as Half Rounds, and still will use them on some of my instruments. However because of my playing style the flat wounds are best suited. The Chrome Extra Lights give me the heavy bottom sound I want without having to use a really heavy set of strings. They stay in tune, have a good sound and although they don't "bend" very well, I am experienced enough to slide up a step or two when I need to hit the notes that would otherwise be provided by a bend.

      They are warm, but they still have a crisp definition. I use them on both electric and for a warmer tone on acoustic guitars (.011's for acoustic). No finger noise!!

        Comments about D'Addario ECG23 Chrome Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

        My normal online string supplier's manufacturer has ceased making Flatwounds, so I tried these as a "stop-gap" till my supplier can find another outlet. Believe that as long as M.F. can provide these at the "sale" price, I'll stick with D'ADario. What I was paying, (including a SHIPPING CHARGE) was more than these, and the quality control I was getting sometimes let me down! Once again M.F., GOOD SHEW!!

          Comments about D'Addario ECG23 Chrome Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

          I love the warm round tone that I get from these strings. I use these strings on my 2 strats to help tone down the brittleness that you would normally get from single coil pickups. I have been using this brand of strings since 2005. I wish I would have discovered them much earlier.

            I've only played them once. I like their feel and sound so far. I don't feel that I can give a deserving review at this time.

              Comments about D'Addario ECG23 Chrome Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

              I use D'addario strings on all my instruments! They have the best sound quality and last longer then any comparable set. I use the flat wound extra light chromes on my jazz guitar, the EX110 on my fender jaguar, and EJ15 on my flat top acoustic Martin. These strings bring out the best tones in all of my instruments. I don't think I would change to any other brand.

              Nice smooth feel. Great for Jazz or anyone who doesn't like a lot of string noise. Very good for blues also. Fairly easy to bend. Great price for value.

                As my title suggests, I love these strings! I play a fusion of jazz, blues, rock. Very smooth and comfortable feel.

                For what it's worth, I use them on a Gibson Midtown Standard and a Gibson Nighthawk Studio.

                    Came upon these by accident when a mom & pop music store was going out of business and these were the only "10s" on the shelf. Now I only buy these and only here for the great discount from the usual seventeen to twenty-four Georges at brick and mortars charge.

                    Smoothest and quietest strings out there. The little e and the b are also polished and easy to keep cleaned.
                    I'm a wound g string guy, so it's a bonus that these come with a wound .020 g, saving my a couple Georges buying a wound .020 from the spare box in music stores.
                    I will say that you might have to cut on your g string nut slot, as most electrics are set for no more than a .014 in that slot.
                    Also if you have extremely low action you might have to do a corrective setup on your axe, as these strings aren't for thumping.

                    If you're dedicated to the twang of slinkys/pro steels then steer clear of these.
                    Myself, I just like the softer easier pliability and playing of these, and have no problem going to a Dunlop nylon .38mm pick to accommodate them. But yeah if you're a shredder and bend on the g then maybe these aren't for you.
