For the ultimate fat jazz sound!

Wernie, 14.01.2010
These are definitely the fattest strings I've had so far. However only suitable for stable archtop guitars. Once you get used to the sound you will not want to miss the incomparable feeling. I use the strings on my archtops and they sound excellent. This also applies when using a pickup (humbucker or piezo).

If you decide for flatwound strings, of course, you must know that they are "more ploppy" and duller than roundwound strings. This is physically justified and depends, among other things, on the stiffness of the string. In addition, especially the deep strings lose some more after a while Brillianz. This can be delayed by playing with clean fingers and wiping the strings well after each playing with a microfiber cloth.

However, I can not understand the price difference between the George Benson strings and the normal flatwound strings of Thomastik so completely. Here, perhaps, the manufacturer would have to make a statement.

I love...!

Juan Diego N., 06.02.2014
To date, they are the best strings I have used. It is already known that for tastes, colors, but in terms of sound, tension, touch, sensations, etc ... they come to my hair, as they say.
They maintain the tone in the thinnest strings (1st, 2nd and 3rd) and are not as rigid as others.
For jazz they sound very good
I bought them without being convinced of what I was doing but I was pleasantly surprised.
The first few hours a bit strange, accustomed to other brands of which I forgot the second day. I already wanted to find a suitable caliber, it is not easy.
While I can, I will continue using them.
A greeting.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
