Jazz Light Electric Guitar Strings EHR350

Coined the “third type of string,” XL Half Rounds are an innovative combination of round wound and flat wound strings. Half Rounds electric guitar strings have a smoother feel than round wound strings, but a fuller tone than strings which are flat wound. Made with a high carbon steel core and stainless steel wrap wire, they’re finished with a precision grinding process to provide a smooth feel and reduced finger noise, with tone that's comparable to round wound strings. This 12-52 Jazz Light set features a wound 3rd/G-string, providing more tension for drop tuning, as well as accommodating a traditional jazz setup.
