High-end traditional jazz strings

boch, 07.06.2017
Thomastik has an almost 100-year old tradition in producing strings in Europe. The strings are slightly more expensive than competition but provide durability and fatness that is superior to most of other popular brands.

Those types of strings would typically be used on the archtop guitars or the more jazz-oriented semi-hollow instruments. The tones provided by this set are very warm and wooden. You can easily obtain the tones of the bebop players of the era, when used with solid state amp and an archtop instrument.

B112 provides a set of gauges ranging from 0.012 to 0.050. Flat wound strings differ in touch than the traditional nickel strings. It is recommended that you check the feel in the shop on some jazz guitars first. For some players the feel on fingers may be a surprising experience.

Unwound string G compelents the whole set and increases playability. The overall tone you can get is very well balanced.

The set is of great quality and playability. However, the players used to lighter gauges will be surprised by the fact that jazz strings are harsher on fingers (especially while sliding) and bending is significantly harder. It is worth playing on heavier gauges to increase finger strength and also focus more on articulation and musicality, which is often lost when the instruments are overly playable and necks are fast.

The strings work well with the low-action instrument. The set provides sufficient tension so no extraneous fret noise is produced when the guitar is set up properly.

I can recomment those strings to any archtop or semi-hollow guitar owner who is willing to explore traditional jazz genres. The fatness and dynamics of the tones is really rewarding, even when slightly more effort is required from your fingers. When coupled with a good instrument, the tone is beautifully propagated by the acoustic resonance of the body.
