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 love theses strings, I have them on a strat, tele and a jazzmaster style guitar, they sounds great on all of them, on the tele and JM, it really has that twangy Cash clickity-clack sound, and flip it to the neck for a silky smooth tone. And a perfect middle sound. And no finger noise! 2 tricks i've learned with flatwounds, don't cut the string until you have tuned up to pitch (helps prevent it from unraveling, been there done that!) and don't stretch the strings, or at least not much, they will break easier than rounds when stretching, especially the wound 3rd string. Great strings!

            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!!

                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!!

                  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.
