    Any guitar players here? Have you ever tried flat wound strings?

    I just bought some yesterday for a "dedicated" jazz guitar and so far I like them for that purpose. Have any of you ever used flat wound strings?

    By the way, the guitar is "dedicated" to jazz but I'm not very dedicated. I don't know much about jazz and am just playing around with it a bit. Any jazz players in here?

    Flat wound strings are mellower than the bright sounds you get from round wrapped strings, and they don't "talk" as much if you slide from one note to another.

    I don't play anymore, but maybe gmilam can give you more info than I can.
