    Comments about Thomastik BB113 Medium Light Jazz BeBop Guitar Strings:

    My rating is for my experience ordering these strings, which was terrible. The strings themselves are pretty good. But get them somewhere else!

    I tried to order 2 sets of these jazz bebop strings - pretty simple you would think. Now weeks later I have received ONE of the correct set and FOUR of a different set that I did not order. I had to call three times, wait for weeks and go to a UPS store and Musiciansfriend offered nothing for my trouble. The worst experience I've had in a long time. They've lost a long time customer.

      Comments about Thomastik BB113 Medium Light Jazz BeBop Guitar Strings:

      I have been using this superior string set on a Guild Artist Award (with DeArmond PU)for decades.
      The compound wound design uses a smaller core & outer wrap wires, so even though they are wound round, they are (for their gage):
      1) Easier to bend
      2) brighter than flat wounds, warmer than
      standard round wounds.
      3) Smoother than round wounds not as smooth
      as standard flat wounds.
      4) Less finger noise than round wounds for recording.
      5) Super dynamic range. Played hard with volume low they sound almost acoustic. Played easy with volume up they sound warm & jazzy. Picking close to the neck or bridge and/or using thumb/fingers
      produces a wider range of sound than I have found
      with other strings.
      6) They have very long life. I do wipe them after each use, I would estimate I get up to 200 hours
      playing on a set. I have never had one break.
      I can't say enough good things about them!

      Good Stuff

      By Tony Mata

      from Va.

      Comments about Thomastik BB113 Medium Light Jazz BeBop Guitar Strings:

      These strings sound great- I have them on my 175. They intonated at the bridge with no problem and have a consistent tone up the neck. HOWEVER! The G string in NOT plain. Even though MF describes it as such, it is not plain. It is wound.Still sound great.

      Yes, these are truely great strings

      By Steve Colagrossi

      from Elkhart Indiana

      Comments about Thomastik BB113 Medium Light Jazz BeBop Guitar Strings:

      I have played since the early sixties and have always used cheap strings. Thinking that fresh strings would be the best, I changed them a lot. Believe it or not, I now change strings about once every 3-4 months rather than weekly. That means they are less expensive and sound much much better than the fresher cheaper strings. Wipe them off with a dampened paper towel. I use a cheap paper towel (ones with a hard finish) and dampened with a little Murphy's Oil soap and water. I now consider these a necessary part of my guitar setup. I have compared pricing on these strings and this site is the best. I hope Thomastik Infield never changes the quality of this string set.
