Every guitar player has a string preference. From different gauges to the varying materials used, many factors affect the sound of a guitar string, and different styles are ideal for various genres. A perfect example is the difference between roundwound strings and flatwound strings. Although roundwounds are the most commonly used, flatwound strings are quite often the preferred choice of many jazz players, as well as any player who wishes to achieve a tone that's mellow, and less bright. You'll find no shortage of flatwound strings provided by the well-known brands. From D'Addario and Thomastik to DR and Galli, these manufacturers use experienced craftsman to construct their flatwound guitar strings, so you can be sure that you're purchasing a product that has met vigorous industry standards before they reach your hands.

For a smooth-sounding flatwound, the D'Addario Chromes ECG24 electric guitar strings are superb for jazz players. The warm tone of these strings is long lasting, and their easy playability can make a performance feel effortless. Another great choice are DR Legend Medium Flatwound electric guitar strings. These handmade strings are easy on the fingers, and are made with old-style construction for a vintage sound.  Thomastik also offers a flatwound string that's endorsed by one of the world's greatest players, George Benson. The Thomastik GB114 George Benson Custom Flatwounds are both powerful and mellow toned. For fans of George Bensons sound, these Flatwounds will certainly take you a big step in the right direction.

Flatwound guitar strings provide a warm, vintage sound to players with practically zero string noise. And although players of blues, funk, and jazz music are more than likely familiar with flatwound strings already, they can also be used in modern rock as well. If you're having a hard time achieving the tone you want with roundwound strings, maybe it's time to switch it up and try flatwound strings. They may be just what you're looking for.
