Product Reviews for Thomastik-Infeld Twelve String Guitar Acoustic Plectrum Bronze 12 String Round Wound Light, .011 - .050, AC211

Thomastik-Infeld Twelve String Guitar Acoustic Plectrum Bronze 12 String Round Wound Light, .011 - .050, AC2115John MatthiesenJune 4, 2010Not worth the price in my opinion. The silking deadens the sound as it starts before you get to the tuners with the string and the bare string does not touch the tuners, thereby reducing sound vibration transmission. This may be fine on older 12's but newer ones lose volume dramatically from the flatwound strings. I was hoping to eliminate finger squeak with the flat wounds but not at the expense of volume and tone. There is nothing on the website or package to inform you of this difference.
