      Comments about D'Addario EHR350 Half Round Jazz Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      I use this string on many instruments: from archtops to LPs to Teles and even a baritone tuned to D. Yep, a 12 set on all these guitars so the tension is consistent whatever I'm playing. Though they are bright at first, the stainless alloy gives long life like a coated string. The half-round grinding removes most finger noise and provides a good feel.

      Have used them for over 30 years...

      By Alan Hightman

      from San Francisco

      Comments about D'Addario EHR350 Half Round Jazz Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      These strings allow me to get more resonance than flatwounds from the wound strings without being too bright and cowboy sounding. Besides my archtop I also use these strings on my Tele that is set up for jazz.
      The originals were nickel plated and sounded warmer. The stainless steel version takes a few days at least to lose the harsh tonality on the wound strings. Once they do they will sound great for a long time, especially with proper string care.
      All D'Addario srings in recent years sound brighter. The plain steels are brighter than they used to be to accomodate modern rock and pop styles. I usually replace the plains with GHS plain steel .016 b and a .012 e. If I don't they eventually mellow out after a gig or two.
      D'Addario has excellent quality control.
      Very good value for a high quality strings.

      Ordering My 2nd Set!

      By Swing_Lowe84

      Comments about D'Addario EHR350 Half Round Jazz Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      I mostly play an acoustic archtop - no pickups, purely acoustic. But I love my Ibanez AF95 Artcore "jazz box" -- a hollow-body electric guitar, which you can also play unplugged, just knocking around the house. For whatever reason, this is how I usually play: "couch volume," someone called it.

      For this kind of playing, these strings are very "beefy" and "chunky" sounding. No rattle or clanging to them, all tone. Not as loud as round-wounds, but way-louder than flats. Even plugged in, I don't notice much finger squeak, as another reviewer did. Sounds quiet and jazzy to me! Great strings for comping chords, whether Freddie Green "sock" rhythm, or treble string "piano" styles -- the heavier gauge is something you'll get used to very fast. Anything less than 11s on my Artcore are just too flimsy. It would handle 13s, but these 12 - 52s are perfect for me.

      Biggest problem I had was with the windings sticking in the nut slots. You'll probably have to sharpen a #2 pencil really sharp and rub all the graphite (pencil "lead") you can into each slot of the wound strings. This slickens the slots and stops the sticking (and tuning!) problems. Much of this is because the guitar was set up for 11s, but it shouldn't have been *this* bad. Must be the windings, how they "grab" the nut material. But it's an easy problem to solve. Takes 2 minutes, tops.

      These babies last and last, too. Don't try this at home, but not long after I'd put these on, I lost my temper over something and did about 5 minutes of Pete Townsend rapid-strums, as hard as I could go. Was *trying* to break them. Couldn't do it. That was 2 months ago. They still sound fairly good, tune well, stay in tune. So this was a sturdy set.

      Nice strings, but more like 1/3 rounds

      By Verona4ever

      Comments about D'Addario EHR350 Half Round Jazz Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      Having tried some other brands, I strung my '97 Epiphone Emperor Regent with these. They brought even much sound like round wounds. IMHO thout the 'depth' of the guitar's large body. But you should know that these strings don't feel or ey're better used acoustically since there's considerable fret sound (sliding) when amplified.
