Flatwound Acoustic Guitar Strings
All guitar strings, no matter the type, come in a few different versions. Flatwound guitar strings are no exception, and you'll find them as light as the D'Addario EFT15 Flat Top PB Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings if you like your strings as light as possible. For something more in the middle ground, check out a set like the D'Addario EFT17 Flat Top PB Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings. Of course, these are all metal strings and playing an acoustic guitar means you have the option of nylon, too - don't worry, this section still has you covered! Thomastik's CF128 N Series and CF127 N Series Nylon Strings bring the flatwound party to the nylon string segment, with the choice between light and normal tension so you can customize to your heart's content.
There are lots of reasons to love flatwound acoustic guitar strings. Not only do they feel super-smooth under the fingers for great playability; they also produce virtually zero finger noise while delivering a tonal quality that manages to be mellow and clear all at once. It's all too easy to make the mistake of dismissing flatwound strings as being just for jazz or only for electric instruments, but one look at this impressive lineup of flatwound acoustic strings is all it takes to show they can actually go just about anywhere.
