good strings, good sound, but a bit stiffer than flatwounds
September 29, 2019
i used them on my new epiphone wildkat as a compromise, so I could play either Jazz or rockabilly without changing guitars. On that point it does the job pretty well!

But, I had to lower the action much more than I expected and still didn't get the smoothness of the flatwounds (0.11 - 0.50)
Prosgreat strings for playing different music styles.
ConsI found the action stiffer than same gauge round or flarwound strings.

Great string set for Tele.

Perfect string set for jazz, country and contemporary music on my Telecaster. Light enough to provide play for bending - solid for clean chording and maintaining tuning.

Good feel. Good sound.

I string both my teles with these and love them. They feel great, and they're only a little tighter than roundwounds. The first thing I noticed when I switched to half-rounds after using various roundwounds for years is that the half-rounds have an old-fashioned sound, which I like a lot. They're warm and have good snap and twang.

Almost!

Never cared for these strings when I used the 12 gauge. Just too stiff. Now that I've gone lighter, and I don't care for the Elixir squeak (on this guitar), the Half Rounds are fine....except for the plain third. I'll swap that out. I'll use the Elixirs in a 10 set on another guitar. Flats are just too dull and this seems to be the best compromise for me.

Half Round Stainless Steel Strings
April 10, 2011
I have been using D'addario Half Round Stainless Steel Strings for well over a Decade. I think strings are a personal preference thing. I like the way they feel, they stay in tune and last a very long time. I whole heartedly recommend this great product.

Bright String without the NOISE

If you hate finger squeak of roundwounds these are the strings for you. Flatwounds can be dull sounding and these halfwounds stay quiet yet give a fairly bright sound. As another poster said these strings feel rough at first but once played for a while the feel tends to "smoothen out". If you want a great string for a clean sound then these should fill the bill nicely for you.

Rough feel, interesting sound
January 10, 2011
I use these on a CIJ Jaguar with Antiquity II pups. The surface of the wound strings has a rough texture that doesn't feel right, they also have more friction on the frets when you're trying to bend. I didn't like the feel at first, but I still keep using them (just on this one guitar) because they give it an interesting tone, rather different than either round-wounds or the Chromes. It gets a nice twang and good clear output.

half round 11 strings

I tried these on a Godin 5th Avenue Kinpin, after using 3 sets of thomastik infeld flatwounds and the strings that came with the guitar. While they sounded fine, they felt very weird and I did not feel comfortable sliding my fingers on them at all. Also, you don't usually notice the way strings look one way or the other but these may be the ugliest strings I have ever put on a guitar. I am now using D'Addario Chrome flatwound strings and am much happier with them.
