As Advertised
I just tried these for the first time and I like them. To my ears they perform as advertised: some of the bright sparkle of round wounds combined with the "heft" of flat wounds. The feel is more like flat wounds.

On my guitar the tone is nice enough that I most often practice acoustically for technical things like scales, arpeggios and Giuliani right hand exercises. YMMV.

I'm on my third set of these, and I don't ever wanna go back to EB Slinky's.

I always found a plain G harsh, and they got harsher the larger I went, until I tried a wound third. A .020w was a little too unharsh, but this set's .018w is perfect.

GHS Pure Nickel Rollerwound Lt. 11-50
I recently was curious, so I did my own comparison of several brands of strings, same gauge and type. I put each set on the same guitar through the same amp on the same day. At the end of my own test I felt that the GHS gave me the best tone, most punch, and most translucent/pure sound. I am confidently sticking with this string - period. Always from Just Strings

GHS set 1315
Bright enough, slightly "dry" sound. Balance is not flawless: I spent time adjusting separate pickup magnets (2nd was very loud, and 3rd was quite silent). I prefer a little more lows and a little less highs, but all in all, it's good choice for clean jazzy sound.

GHS Nickel Rockers/Rollerwound
11-50 gauge. I play in many tunings, down to a low B or C on the 6th string. A tad more tension from the roller process helps retain good feel and less string buzz when detuned. Love the sound, which has more low's and less high's than traditional roundwounds.
The feel is very smooth, in between a roundwound and flatwound. Use 'em on two Fender-Japan Telecasters, one a 72 f-hole reissue and a 2006 '62 reissue and a 1998 Gibson Chet Atkins Tennessean in Burnt Orange, a real stunner. Great strings, and great service from JustSrings.com!!

"These bright-sounding, smooth-feeling sets are great for rhythm guitar or jazz. They play in tune, stay in tune."

GHS Strings

 

"GHS Corporation is one of the world's leading manufacturers of high quality strings for fretted instruments. GHS produces strings for electric, acoustic and classic guitar, electric bass, banjo, mandolin, and a wide array of specialty and ethnic instruments. From Battle Creek, Michigan, USA (where GHS was founded in 1964), fresh-from-the-factory strings and music products are delivered direct to retail stores in the USA and to distributors in over 70 countries around the world.

With over 200 standard sets and 700 single strings, GHS has a set that is right for you.

String Design

The string specialists at GHS bring a craftsman-like approach to each aspect of string design. From material selection to such intricate factors as core-to-cover ratio, winding direction, wire tension and alteration of the wire, GHS designs state-of-the-art strings that enhance the sound quality of all playing styles and instruments. And with ongoing research, GHS develops string innovations that anticipate music trends and instrument modifications worldwide.

String Manufacturing

To build a quality product, state-of-the-art equipment is a necessity. At GHS, all strings are made on machinery designed and built in-house. The GHS design engineers utilize the latest technology to develop computer controlled string making machines that monitor such intricate parameters as the number and type of twists on the ball end, winding speed and direction, core and cover wire tension, cover wire angle and wind length. Modern quality control methods ensure that the final product meets GHS's rigid specifications.

Factory Fresh

GHS knows that you want your strings to be as fresh as the day they were made. All GHS facilities are environmentally regulated to control temperatures and humidity. Sensitive raw materials and bulk products are further wrapped in protective bags for storage. Coiled strings are placed in string packets that, in independent laboratory tests, have proven to offer the optimum protection from humidity. Finally, the GHS swift order shipment (usually within 24 hours of order placement) guarantees that GHS strings arrive in your retail store factory-fresh.

How String Material Affects Tone and Feel

The hardness of common materials used in the cover wire of strings affects both the tone and "feel" of a string. Usually, with all else remaining constant, the harder the material the brighter the string. This relationship shows why stainless steel produces a very bright sound and nickel, a softer material, produces a warmer sound. However, a hard material can be abrasive to both fingers and frets. At GHS, our unique "Alloy 52", used in Progressives and White Bronze strings, is softer and less abrasive than a stainless steel but produces a tone almost as bright. Common cover wire materials include (ranked by order of brightness) stainless steel, Alloy 52, nickel plated steel, pure nickel, and for acoustics, brass and bronze.

The core wire for all strings and all plain steel strings (both acoustic and electric) are made from tin plated Swedish steel."
