This will probably the last kind of guitar strings I'll be using for my Les Paul. It is perfect for Jazz & Blues. As what the packaging say, it gives warm clear tone and it is ultra smooth. After installing it to my Les Paul, I played continously for 5hours and my left hand fingers did not even hurt a little. You can slide and bend smoothly with this. You won't probably put your guitar down for hours after installing this. You will fall in-love with your guitar after hearing it with this string.

Also, D'Addario has a great corrosion protection packaging. The strings are fresh after you've opened it.

These string are alright. I put them on, and they are what they say: REALLY mellow tone. I didn't like it, but it was kind of amusing to hear. When I used them through an amp with distortion they sounded alright. And, for a second, I thought I might use them; but they're not good for solos and you can't do pick slides, due to the flat nature of the wound. They do almost totally eliminate the noise from your fingers though. That's pretty cool.Now, I play metal, but I wanted to try them. And I had heard a few people who play metal liking these. And they would work for a few kinds of metal (the styles that are all lows and no solos or leads). They're meant for Jazz anyway. If you play the aformentioned metal styles, then go ahead and try them out. But, most metal people should just not bother.

              Decided to give these a try...I couldn't have been more disappointed. They are dull not warm an mellow but dull stiffer that all heck and the sustain is almost non existent.
              definitely not worth the cost

                      The D'AddarioXL Chromes are hard to beat. Jazz guitarist Sandy DeVito told me about them. They last, the tone stays with you, and they are just a darn good flatwound string. I've been using them for years and have no cons or complaints. The price is right too.

                          Make the Jazzmaster sound like it should. May go to the extra lights next time just to experiment, but either way, these are the strings you need to make your Jazzmaster or Jaguar sound like they were intended.

                            I bought these at a store on a whim. With nothing better to do, I put them on an acoustic guitar. They have a dense, clear tone. The attack isn't as sharp as normal strings, but the sustain seems to be about the same. Best part? No string squeak when I slide my fingers up and down the fretboard.
