These are good strings, but I'm not all that impressed with the sound. In my opinion they are slightly dead at lower volumes. I'm sure they will last a long time, probably longer then I want.

The Best Yet

By jacqe00

Just put these babies on my Gretsch Hollowbody 5120 and I could not be happier. Since I purchased this guitar (about 3 months ago) I have tried 5 different sets of strings. I could just not get the good clean sound I was looking for. Especially on the G string. I am by no means an expert, but I do know enough to know when it sounds right. I was about ready to take my guitar in for a complete setup, even though I have done my own for years, and a friend of mine who plays and has a lot more experience than me suggested a flat wound string. I opted for the Gretsch since they got some good reviews, and well...I have a Gretsch guitar.Nice clean full sound. I have never heard my guitar sound better. Worth every penny and the only string I will put on this guitar ever - don't care if they cost a bit more.You can't go wrong if you ask me.


Expensive but.....

By newsquierlover

This set of strings is expensive but I am not using other strings ever!! I got these by chance at a local music store, they did not have any other 12s set in the store, so I payed for the back then "over priced set of strings" since I needed to re-string my tele.. I am happy this happened. These strings sound full of tone, sustain great, make hardly any fretting noise, are durable and will defenitely improve the sound of any guitar you have. I have them on my Std Strat, my Std Tele and in my Artcore As73. I like them more than DDs, ernies or Fenders (which I have tried all at some point). Get this if you own a hollow-body, if you dont, get this and your guitar will beg you to do some jazz anyways!!! Amazing quality, worth every cent!


The real deal!

By newsquierlover

I put a set of this strings on my strat, since the store did not have any Ds which were the ones I usually would use. I was p****d at the price, but it was either getting this set or going with a set of 10s.... This strings rule, I am happy I had to buy them, I don't care if theyre pricy, they are worth every penny and more....If you like jazz, blues or rock, do yourself a favor ad grab a set of this strings today. They bring new life to your guitar, I have never heard my guitar sound this good ever!!!


the best flatwounds i've played yet

By jimi hyde

from sacramento ca

I put these on my epiphone PR-150 acoustic and they dramatically improved the tone of the guitar. I stripped the paint off and had martin strings and the cheap guitar sounded pretty bad. I knew it was the strings (although they sound great on my 70's ovation)and as soon as I put them on, it brought out the mids and treble with just enough bass and amazing sustain. Best buy for acoustics and hollow and semi hollow bodies. Wish I had tried these before I sold my epiphone casino. Can't wait to put some on my telecaster and hear them electrically. Get two packs to make sure if a string breaks because of your guitar, that you can really enjoy the wonderful tone! :)


They're the best

I broke string like crazy now it has been a few months since I broke these. They have a unique sound. and you can't do pick slides well but they are good for players who break strings constantly.


Best Flatwounds Available!

By Swankster

from Houston, Texas

Gretsch makes the Best Sounding, Smoothest, and Longest-lasting Flatwound strings on the market. They are tightly wound, producing great tone as well as super smooth surface...no "scratch" when you slide up and down. I wipe them down with a T-shirt after use and they outlast several sets of the competition's strings, which makes them an even greater value.
