Great strings
Silde-Novice 14.12.2020
I decided to try out flatwounds. I have Thomastik flats on all my basses, and I wanted to try these on an electric guitar. I use them on a Les Paul. The sound is less "muffled" than I expected. Definitely usable for R&B and even heavier music. The strings feel somewhat stiffer than 11 roundwounds - bending is harder, but still possible within limitations. I feel chord clarity especially on the lower strings is much better than with roundwounds. Especially recommended for R&B style chunky rhythm playing.

Quality: feels good. One thin E-string however got straight away twisted/tangled beyond use, when unpacking. Might be my mistake, but this never happened to me with other strings. I also broke a G-string while playing - again, it might be a rough edge on my Les Paul's Tune-o-Matic. For these reasons 4/5 in quality.

Flatwounds Rock!
Mr. Jo 31.10.2017
I have put these strings on my Stratocaster, Eric Clapton signature, because I found it's sound too bright. I was very surprised, the sound of my strat has mellowed out but remains plenty articulate- I really dig the sound I get with these strings. The string tension is somewhat higher but I didn't have to adjust my setup and eventhough the tension is higher these strings play very smooth! Also, i read on the net that some people say you can't play rock or metal with these but that's not true, yes they sound different but I find these very versatile! Yup, you've guessed it, I've become a fan and will be putting these on all of my guitars!!

Expensive, but worth it

I love the feel and sound of Thomastik flat-wound strings on an archtop guitar. They're a bit expensive, as strings go, but they seem to last a long time and are, as far as I'm concerned, worth it.

Arguably best guitar flatwounds..?
wgen 21.11.2018
Bought this particular guitar strings gauge for electric guitar, aiming to rock music and not jazz or mellow styles. Been using Thomastik strings for some time now, always been satisfied.
This particular gauge (central strings are from a 10 gauge strings set, the others from a 11 gauge set) let you maintain nice flexibility and crystal clear highs with the plain strings, while the flatwound strings give you nice full sounds that never, never get dull, differently from other flatwounds.
Seems quite resistent to corrosion, too.
These Thomastiks are your best bet as guitar flatwounds if you are aiming to modern styles and not only to traditional ones.
Sometimes I only wonder if they had a little more tension...Apart from that, these are what I was searching for.
