OVERVIEW

Heavy guitar strings with a wound third.

Electrozinc Jazz 12's are ideal for the electric jazz guitarist. With a .52 for a low-E and a wound G-string, jazz players can count on strong bass while comping and a thick lead sound. Co-designed and engineered by D’Addario, Electrozinc marks the return of the partnership between these two legendary brands.

The story of the string begins more than 75 years ago. In 1938, John D’Angelico was already a living legend known for his signature archtop guitars, while John D’Addario was a young kid trying to expand the family string business. Their chance meeting would result in the invention of the world’s first modern round wound electric guitar string, the zinc-coated Bethanized Steel. Its sound was unrivaled in fullness, volume, and brightness. Its tone would be featured on some of the greatest records of all time. But the closing of the Bethlehem Steel plant in the ‘60s put an abrupt end to its production, leaving its sound unmatched for over half a century. Until now.

Today, D’Angelico and D’Addario have re-forged their storied partnership. Combining modern innovation with John D’Addario’s original designs, D’Angelico’s Electrozinc string is the truest tribute to Bethanized Steel since the original. And D’Addario’s EXP technology coats every string to maintain its classic tone even longer. Electrozinc will be available in six gauge variations, suiting players from all traditions—from hard rock to swinging jazz.

        Comments about D'Angelico Electrozinc Jazz 12-52 Light Electric Guitar Strings:

        Really dig these wound G Electrozinc's. They feel great and get the perfect tone on my jazz box! They seem to stay in tune better than other wound G jazz style sets I've played. Going to try the 10-47 on my solid body electric!
