Roundwound, Halfwound and Flatwound

The profile of the wrap wire affects tone and feel of guitar strings.

  • Round wound guitar strings offer the the brightest sound, yet have more string noise due to their ribbed texture.

  • Half round guitar strings have a warmer sound due to the strings being round wound, then ground down for a smoother feel. This reduces string noise when changing chords, while retaining some of the sound qualities of the round wound string.

  • Flat wound guitar strings offer the warmest, most vintage sound of these three profiles. The flat ribbon wire provides the smoothest polished surface, practically eliminating string noise. This string is perfect for anything from blues to jazz, yet quite capable of performing modern rock.

Below are some of our most popular Half Wound and Flat Wound Guitar Strings!
