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.

Attached are pictures so you may see what you're purchasing:

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.

    Comments about D'Addario XL Chromes Jazz Light Electric Guitar Strings ECG24 Flatwound:

    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.

        The perfect tone for surf music. When played through a reverb stand alone unit, these strings allow all the punch you want while rolling off any brittleness typical of heavy reverb settings. In the end, the player and listeners can hear the lush yet bold sound that keeps people interested enough to hang around. i've tried several other flatwounds but these are the best by far.

          Comments about D'Addario XL Chromes Jazz Light Electric Guitar Strings ECG24 Flatwound:

          I used to pay out the nose for jazz strings from Europe. A friend told me about the jazz flatwounds from D'Addario. Since I had been using D'Addario strings on almost all of my instruments for years I decided to try a set on my Guild Savoy jazz box. Nice. It seems the older they get the funkier jazz sound I get out of them. I guess all my instruments will be strung with D'Addario strings now.
