Product Reviews for D'Addario Electric Guitar Chromes 7-string Jazz Lite, .011 - .065, ECG24-7

D'Addario Electric Guitar Chromes 7-string Jazz Lite, .011 - .065, ECG24-75Leo VolontJanuary 20, 2011Thank God these strings exist! I was able to convert both my new Fender "Blacktop" Telecaster with humbucker pickups and my old Jazzmaster to Baritone Guitar configuration by installing the six lowest strings. Yes, it took some fingernail filing of the nut on the Nut of the Telecaster, and some sawing and filing on the Bridge of the old Fender Jazzmaster, with the same work on the neck nut, but now they are GREAT baritone guitars. And the strings all have the right tone and tension. Oh, I tune to B E A D G C... five intervals for each string... they are like a little Basses. You can do both bass and lead guitar at the same time. Honestly, I don't know why more people don't go this same route. But with D'Addario Chrome 7 Jazz Lites... and a few household tools... you can.

"Always in search of better string-making materials, D'Addario turned to 400-series magnetic stainless steel in the mid 1970's. Stainless steel wound strings offer even more brilliance than their nickel-plated counterparts, and the alloy is well suited for Half Roundâ and flat wound string constructions.

The round wound XLS line mirrors the sets in the XL nickel-plated series, combining the popularity of XL round wound strings with the unique qualities of steel. D'Addario Chromes are made with precision flat (ribbon) outer windings and polished to a fine high-luster. Each Chromes string is wound and polished on the same machine, with the string tension remaining constant between processes. Long the choice of jazz and fusion players, Chromes are available in three popular gauges.

In 1976, D'Addario developed the Half Roundâ grinding process, which made available "the third kind of string". Each Half Roundâ string starts as an oversized precision round wound string and is centerless-ground to a smooth, precise final diameter. With a tone in between their round wound and flat wound peers, D'Addario Half Roundsâ offer the advantages of a smooth exterior string (reducing finger noise and fret wear) while maintaining some of the brightness of a round wound string."
