Here, the cross section of the winding is flat and smooth. It is in close contact with the core and has a unique sweet tone with reduced sustain and harmonic content, and is especially preferred by jazz guitar players. Half-rounds are halfway between rounds and flats, but are manufactured differently than traditional round-wound strings. It realizes a supple feel like a flat round without losing the brightness of the round wound.
A classic flatwound string for many jazz guitarists.
Flat-wound strings with smaller windings and lighter touches than competitors' products.
By using bright stainless steel for the material of the half-round string, a well-balanced tone can be obtained.
