    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    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.

    I tried them yesterday, they are just insane, I could not stop playing.

    Fingers crochent not when you seek a note, the sound is warm and beautiful harmonics.

    It multiplies the pleasure of playing on an electric guitar, I fell in love ... How I managed without it for 20 years? ..

    In addition they preserve the frets and boxes (and fingers).

    I've seen strings like that on a low last year: it was funny it looked like nylon, it gave the impression of playing a bass, but not what I imagined it could give a scratched.

    Miracle of modern technology ...

    To test absolutely!

    (PS: The word Jazz is not on the package ... in fact they are suitable for all styles)

    For how long have you been using it?

    </ul>

    About 1 month but as I took 3 games, I'll update if necessary.

    What thing do you like most/least about it?

    </ul>

    + Of the cords are the special treatment which provide softness to the touch, the strings are very smooth.
    For cons, I have more trouble with the plans, tapping, string "hangs" less ...

    Did you try many other models before getting this one?

    </ul>

    Yes, I have tried other models from the same brand, Ernie Ball, Elixir. Apart from the problems of tie is the first time I see a difference after changing my strings. At her, seemed less ca "slamming" and "metal" than others jeux.Niveau quality: RAS, anyway…

    Yes, I have tried other models from the same brand, Ernie Ball, Elixir. Apart from the problems of tie is the first time I see a difference after changing my strings. At her, seemed less ca "slamming" and "metal" than others jeux.Niveau quality: RAS, anyway I change a game about once a quarter, so I do not push the strings in their retranchementsL'aspect smooth / polished "is interesting for the slides of barbarians, but suddenly the ropes hang just under the fingers and get used to this new" touch ", including plans for tapping.
    Apparently, this type of game is designed for jazz guitarists therefore clearly not my case because j'officie in registers more rock / metal / sludge but hey, it does not stop them from ringing. <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="" /> To my knowledge, no manufacturer of strings in models of this type.

    <ul>

    What is your opinion about the value for the price?

    </ul>

    Paid 13 € in Royez Music in Paris 11th. That seems correct.
    <ul>

    Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

    </ul>

    I think I'll go back to unpolished games to see if it is "better" or not.

    This is a set of strings which has very good sound quality. I tried it on my guitar for 2 months. I changed it because it does not suit me.

    The "Flat Wound" (thread dish) provides comfort for the fingers, a sensation of velvet. They give a more "smooth" with slides and glides. The big advantage is that they drastically reduce the noise made by the fingers of his left hand sliding on the strings when changing position. The disadvantage is that you obviously can not use these "noises" for effects.

    What should I do with absolutely no cons, it is the elastic cords threaded. ie strings Mi-La-Re-Sol. This elasticity makes them extremely difficult bends. It is impossible to go beyond a tone. M…

    What should I do with absolutely no cons, it is the elastic cords threaded. ie strings Mi-La-Re-Sol. This elasticity makes them extremely difficult bends. It is impossible to go beyond a tone. Make a bend in a tone during a solo ask a movement of a magnitude very excessive and hinder the implementation of fluid solo.

    This disadvantage (major for me) in addition to the high price makes me put a 6.
    If you cons do not or very little "bends", I urge you to try. You could fall in love ...

    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...

    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)...
