Product Reviews for D'Addario Electric Guitar Half Round Stainless Jazz Lite, .012 - .052, EHR350

D'Addario Electric Guitar Half Round Stainless Jazz Lite, .012 - .052, EHR3505VONFebruary 5, 2011Reduced finger noise [and fret wear I suppose] but still good tone and easy playing. I think I'll go to 13's though... .012 just a little on the loose side for me but OK. I like these a lot and you don't have to enlarge string groove w/ the nut like wounds of same gauge.

"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."
