Thomastik JS112 in my opinion are the best flat wound Archtop strings available on the market. These strings are designed for archtop guitars and get that sweet Jazz sound. Thomastik always produce high quality products, I have never had a duff string, what you would expect for the price. You can also buy these strings in 10-44, 11-47 and 13-53. I have only had good experiences with these strings, and having tried many other brands looking for the right strings, Thomastik JS112 are them. I would defiantly recommend purchasing these strings, especially from Thomman. Delivery and customer service here is standard I wish all music stores provided.
Pros: - Smooth consistent sound with the wound 3rd (G) string and true round core - Long life, especially with the silk-wrapped ends - Individual packets for each string, so changing one broken string in a hurry doesn't require searching for the right string.
Cons: - Have to use string cleaner to achieve the brightest sound, but that's only preference. - They're not the best for bending, but thats not what they're designed for.
