My Go To Flat Wound Bronze Strings. Galli AJF
December 19, 2019
There are not many offerings for Flat Wound Bronze string sets.
TI Plectrums, Dogal Nightclub and Galli Jazz Flat 80/20 Bronze are all that come to mind.
I really like the Galli Jazz Flat 80/20 Bronze strings and have been using them since S&B
started carrying them back in March 2017.
I'm thankful S&B stocks 3 different gauge sets, Galli Extra Light AJF1047, Galli Light AJF1150, and Galli AJF1252.
I have used the Galli Extra AJF1047 strings on my
Emerald X7 and Emerald X20 carbon fiber acoustic guitars.
My Emerald X20 presently has Galli AJF1047 strings installed.
Presently on my Emerald X7, I am using the Galli Light AJF1150 strings. .
On my recently acquired Emerald X30 carbon fiber acoustic guitar (in lowered d-D tuning) I am presently using the Galli Medium Light AJF1252 strings.
I like the smoothness of the Galli's flat wound strings, the 3rd- G is a little less smooth than the rest of the flat wound
strings in the set, but I can still slide my fingers up and down the strings without any annoying string squeak noise.
The only bronze flat wounds that I've used that I like a little better than these Galli strings are the Dogal Nightclub V25 flat wound Bronze strings.
The Dogal uses a round core and Galli uses a hex core, I like round core strings.
The flat wound on the Dogal strings does feel a little smoother to me than the Galli.
Dogal V25 are very good strings but they are also significantly more costly than the Galli AFJ Jazz Flat 80/20 Bronze.
I like the Galli AJF Jazz Flat 80/20 Bronze more than TI Plectrums because the wound strings in the Plectrum sets are not all flat wound, some are round wound.
The Galli AJF Jazz Flat 80/20 Bronze Strings are my go to strings and I highly recommend any of the 3 gauge sets S&B offers.
