D'Addario XL Chromes Flat Wound Electric StringsPublished on 12/08/08 at 03:10
(Originally written by marc05400/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
I played a while with their smaller sisters 11/50...

On my guitar (Godin LGH) the high E string had a much too hollow sound. The problem disappeared almost completely with a 12/52 string set! The mids sound even better and the lows are almost the same. These strings do allow halftone bends but are definitely not made for one tone bends!

Disadvantage: chord progressions using a lot of barre chords are harder to play and I get tired...

I'll have to use them a while and decide if I keep them or if I go back to a 11/50 string set...

I've been using these strings for a few weeks. These are the first flat wound strings I try so I cannot compare them with others... But their quality doesn't prompt me to try another brand...

Depending on the pickup and amp settings (I use a Vox AD30VT) they give my Lg Hmb Godin a jazz or blues sound. They are comfortable to play without sliding noises! They are "smooth" enough to easily play full bends on the 4th fret (if your fingers can manage it!). People who want to do full bends or even larger bends... should think about buying a winch!!!

I'm considering upgrading to the 12/52...

For the time being I cannot say anything about durability...

I give them 10/10! I have no reason to give them a worse grade for the moment...

They give a jazzy or bluesy sound to my Lg Hmb Godin depending on the pickup and amp settings (Vox AD30VT). They are very comfortable to play with and hardly make any noise when I slide! They are "smooth" enough to easily play 1-tone bends on the 4th fret (if your fingers can take it!). I'm actually considering trying out their big sisters (gauge 12/52)...
Right now I cannot say anything about durability...

I used it on different guitars and hence several years
what I hate is the fragility of the soil, which pete for me in general after 1 month, then I am desesper telling me the other strings can last a year !!
the price of the game, and not finding these strings Dtail I'll dfinitivement stop using them.
in my opinion, 13 euros the game, it's expensive !! but it is true that the sound is, and it is quite unique!
if he decides to sell the Dtail, then can be rachaterai I cs strings.
