    Comments about Thomastik KR116 Classic S Series Flatwound Light Guitar Strings:

    The Classic S rope core are quite a departure from the standard Classic strings one has come to expect.
    They really suit the cross over finger style Folk guitarist. The feel and sound sits between a good carbon classic set and a high quality silk and steel set; both in feel and sound. They make a rather budget classic guitar sound like a instrument worth 10 times the price. They project well.

        If you want that classic guitar feel on your acoustic guitar these strings are for you. All 6 wound strings. Great feel and super sound. They are worth the money to me and last a long time!

            Comments about Thomastik KR116 Classic S Series Flatwound Light Guitar Strings:

            For mucho dinero a set, I bought these supposed "flatwound" strings for my classical guitar after reading all the rave reviews to eliminate the scrithy sound on the low E, A, and D. Bought 2 sets before trying them out. Well, the Thomastik KR-116s are really round wounds using "unique construction" as false advertising. They are round wound, not flatwound. I use flatwounds on my Gibson ES-175 so I know the difference. They tuned up really fast and keep tune. The feel and sound on the high G, B, and E is weirdly rough after full nylons due to the "unique" construction using what looks like graphite materials. The sustain is ok and the tone is not bad but not worth the high price. All 6 strings have ball ends which is very handy for stringing. If you like the sweet sound of nylons and want flatwound low E, A, and D strings, these are not what you're looking for.

            Awesome strings in open G

            Comments about Thomastik KR116 Classic S Series Flatwound Light Guitar Strings:

            I bought these on a whim because it was time to change the strings on my Baby Taylor and i wanted to try something different on it. I play finger style blues in open G and this is my go-to guitar. These strings feel great! They bend well and stay in tune. They have a mellow tone but still have some brightness too. If you are going to these after traditional strings be prepared for some volume loss -- not a lot but you will notice.

            I have had them on for a week and i have played this guitar every chance i get!
            As long as they hold up, I will definitely keep using them.
            A bit pricy but it all depends on how long they last.
