I play jazz guitar with a combo about 4 nights a week. I thought that I had my gear all figured out, nothing new to add. I heard a cat play whose jazz box sounded phenomenal. I was amazed at the string action. The sound of the guitar jumped out at you from all strings -- fantastic. After comping a bit and blazing single-pick improvisation. I found out the strings were Thomastik-Infeld. I bought a set, just to get the low action/low tension string feel. I was shocked to find that a good deal of the beautiful tone from this cat's guitar, was the strings. These strings not only gave me the same incredible chord grip sensation -- but the tone of my box was noticeably improved. Throw away those notions that a flat wound string set has to be big, high tension, and a bit dull in sound. These Thomastik-Infeld strings are 10 -- 47, medium tension, and sound incredible. Don't like Flat Wounds -- give the Thomastik-Infeld Be Bop Round Wounds a trial -- you'll groove with what you feel & hear

I was looking for a string that would make my Gretsch sound a little warmer and play easier. They were somewhat warmer than my former brite strings. They were easy to play without much noise. However I'll keep looking.
This is the first time I've ever tried these strings. The low e broke when I started winding it.
Too pricey for my taste compared to what I can get elsewhere.

Infinitely Superior To Chromes

By Hoopskidoodle

from Michigan

See all my reviews

Comments about Thomastik JS110 Flatwound Extra Light Jazz Swing Guitar Strings:

First of all, these are archtop Jazzbox strings. Another reviewer rated them poorly because the G string wouldn't go on his Strat. Well, again, they are Jazz-box strings, and they have a wound G string. That said, they are the finest strings I've ever bought. They're harmonically sweet, even the plain strings. The plain strings are tinned with some kind of metal that gives them a more mellow and sweet tone than plain steel strings (You'll notice that they have a bronze colored tinge to them.) They stay in tune very well. And, with proper care, they last forever (maybe not forever if you are a gigging music who sweats and bleeds on them 5 hours/ night.) I also like the fact that they aren't slippery like chromes. They are perfectly smooth and noiseless, but your fingers don't slip around on them. Given how buttery they sound and how long they last, the Thomastik JS110 Jazz Swing strings are well worth their cost.

Be careful

Comments about Thomastik JS110 Flatwound Extra Light Jazz Swing Guitar Strings:

These strings have a thread winding on the ends of the wound strings. On a Strat (or any guitar really) when you trim the length of the string prior to winding, the string will separate from it's core as soon as you begin to tension it up. This makes the string useless.

Best Flatwound I've used

By BOB STANGE

from KY

See all my reviews

Comments about Thomastik JS110 Flatwound Extra Light Jazz Swing Guitar Strings:

I installed these on a Guild Starfire III because I wanted a mellower sound for solo performing. I was very pleased with the results; they really made the guitar come alive. I wouldn't use them if I was playing classic rock on a strat, but they are great in the right situation.
Nice feel and great tone; warm with a nice ring, not a thud like other flatwounds. A good selection of gauges for all players preferences.
They are expensive, but you can hear the difference.

Less overtone, more fundamental

By T1PSTN

from New Jersey

See all my reviews

Comments about Thomastik JS110 Flatwound Extra Light Jazz Swing Guitar Strings:

I bought these on a whim a few years ago thinking that they may tame the sound of a dissapointingly brittle-sounding electric. These feel like violin strings, soft, slick, spongy-- not as stiff as you would expect from a set of .010" strings.They have much more subtle overtones and strong a strong fundamental so chords ring very consonantly and single-note work sounds 'tighter' on slow and fast runs.With distortion, these surpirse with a lot of punch and grind but no hars buzzy grit.These strings hold their tune perfectly after about 10 minutes of initial playing. Plus, they seem to hold their luster and tone for MUCH longer than typical round wound steel strings.These are not for all players nor all instruments. They cost a lot compared to other strings, but they last longer, hold their tune better, and can help guitars to sound much better-- clean or distorted.

      Comments about Thomastik JS110 Flatwound Extra Light Jazz Swing Guitar Strings:

      i have a lot of guitars and my ES -175 Gibson jazz box was getting left hanging on the wall, taken out only when I wanted to play some We Montgomery tunes. I talked with one of the advisers at Musician's Friend and he mentioned this Austrian firm who makes light gauge flat wound jazz strings that are very well done, albeit at a stiff price premium. I ordered a set and have since put hundreds on hours on the 175. The winding on the G string is almost invisible and you feel no windings through your fingers, even on the low E. They are the best made strings I have ever played, which is half a century now. I just ordered two more sets, though the intonation is perfect after all this use.When you consider the string life, the price is justified and the feel is , for this player at least, priceless.

      Poor Quality Strings

      By Disappointed-qzlK0

      from Monson, MA

      Comments about Thomastik JS110 Flatwound Extra Light Jazz Swing Guitar Strings:

      Regarding the Thomastik JS110 electric guitar strings. These strings had two major flaws for me. First, the G string doesn't even fit through the neck roller bar on a Fender Stratocaster - I had to abandon that one altogether. Second & MOST disappointing is the fact that the Low E string just unwound/broke before I could even get it tuned. As I was winding the string the 1st twist of the nut stretched it so much it unwound. I will never buy this product again. total rip-off.
