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.

Excellent strings for my need.

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

Great strings for rhythm players who play oldies/classic rock, country and blues. Have a great mellow sound, no string noise and they last a long time. I do wish the set came with a .020 plain instead of a .022 wound for the 3rd (G) string. I do play some lead and the .022 is a little hard to do bends. Keep them wiped down and clean and they will serve you well. I have several Epi Sheraton II guitars, as well as several Fender (Jazzmaster and Jaguar) which are all strung with these strings (except I swap out the wound G string for a plain).
If you like light tops and heavy bottoms these work great.

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

    I have been using these flatwound strings since 2005. I love the warm round tone that I get from these strings. I wish I would have discovered these strings sooner. I use them on my 2 Fender Strats & Tele. These strings help to tone down the brittleness that you would normally get from round wound strings. I have no complaints about these strings what so ever.

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

        D'adddario are quality strings.I have used TI in the past. and DR flatwound. The TI swing 12's were great sounding but expensive. The DR flatwound 11's were good also . I prefer the gauge on the Dr 11's.
        Recently I went back to the Daddario chromes. To get the guage I wanted I purchased Chromes 10's, replaced the 1'st string with an 11 and the 3rd with a 22.(Equivalent to the DR 11's) At this time they sound great. Quality sounding strings and the price is not bad compared to TI and DR. I have also used the Chromes 11's, but have found the gauges in this pack to be a little heavier than what I was used to. I'll probably stick to Chromes 10 and replace the first with an 11 and third with a 22,
        As far as tone the Chromes are brighter than the DR. TI are a great mellow string also.As of now I am happy with the Daddario's..

            I don't use a pic so smooth is definitely a plus. The mellow tone is great.
