light strings develop good technique
April 9, 2017
Although I do not always use strings this light, I recommend them for all students with technique problems. I use them myself when I find I have fallen into bad practice habits. Using light strings develops sensitivity, and that is the first thing we must have. Speed and strength come automatically AFTER we have sensitivity. The faster route to super speed and technique is using light strings. D'Addario, GHS and roto-sound are all good brands that offer a full range of gauges, so you can get exactly what you need for your level of development. I especially like D'Addario because they publish the actual string tensions for every string they make, which in turn, allows us the users to choose wisely.

"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."
