too short
October 21, 2014
The top two strings are too short for a 28" scale baritone. (total string length short for a jazz master style guitar with tremolo).

Good string life and tight bass from the heavy 4th, 5th and 6th strings. The wound third string squeaks a lot,so I switch out to a 24p on the 3rd. Favorite bari set I've tried. Still waiting for someone to make a flatwound baritone set.

As usual EB strings do the job... time after time. I put these on my Longhorn Danelectro baritone .... instant "Wild Wild West" tone.

For players who have long instruments.. perhaps MEASURING the needed length and asking about it would be a better solution?

These strings were not long enough to reach the D and G tuning pegs on my Gretsch 5566 Silver Jet double neck. I had to throw them away.

The D'Addarios worked, though.

Plain String

"Plain strings sound the higher pitch notes. Plain string is unwound. Made of specially tempered tin plated high carbon steel, but its shape is round, not hex. Used on electric and acoustic guitars, banjos, mandolins -- not classic guitars. One end has a brass grommet, called a ball, which is secured by a special lock twist. The ball is for attaching the string to an instrument.

Electric Strings

Wound strings sound the lower pitch notes. They consist of wrap wire lightly coiled around a core wire. Nickel plated steel, the most popular, produces a well balanced all around good sound. Stainless steel provides a brighter sound. Pure nickel, which some believe gives a richer, fuller sound.

Plain strings sound the higher pitch notes. They are made of a specially tempered high carbon steel wire. They are used as first, second, and often third strings.

Core Wire

Core wire is the center of a wound string. It is of specially tempered high carbon steel. The crosscut end view reveals a shape that is not round, but hex shaped. The points of the hex shape help hold the wrap wire securely in place. Hex core wire is used for the wound strings of both electric and acoustic guitars, banjos, and mandolins - but not classic guitars."
