If you're an electric guitar player and a fan of all things smooth and mellow, you definitely owe it to yourself to consider putting flatwound electric guitar strings on your axe. Unlike standard roundwound strings (which use rounded winding wires that give them a rough texture), flatwound strings have special flattened windings around them. Plus, they're polished after the winding process to make them even smoother. The result is a string that feels super-smooth to the touch, allowing effortless slides without fret noise. And since the flat winding wires fit so snugly around the string, they add density to create a mellower, richer tone.

That mellow character is the main reason why flatwound electric guitar strings are the mainstay for jazz musicians - and there are plenty of sets here that are designed especially for the genre. Take the Black Diamond Pure Jazz Electric Guitar Chromium Flat Wound Strings for example, or the D'Addario XL Chromes Jazz Light Electric Guitar Strings. Looking for a set of strings made to meet a world-class artist's personal specs? Check out the Thomastik GB112 Medium Light George Benson Custom Flatwound Guitar Strings. Or maybe you'd like to try out a different material? The GHS Precision Flatwound Electric Guitar Strings are made from stainless steel, balancing their flatwound mellowness with a good dose of steel clarity.

No matter which set of strings is the best fit for your playing style, your instrument and your signature sound, the most important thing to keep in mind is that it's up to you to figure out what will hit that sweet spot. For artists who want a smooth sound and feel, low fret noise and great playability, there's no doubt that flatwound electric guitar strings are a fantastic choice - so if that sounds right for you, don't hesitate to start searching through this section for that perfect new set of guitar strings to add to your collection!
