EFT15 Flat Top strings combine D'Addario's popular extra-light gauging with an exclusive precision polishing process for a smoother, quieter playing surface. Great for recording or slide playing.        

D'Addario Flat Tops are round wound, then precision ground, leaving the outer surface smooth and "semi-flat." This produces a smooth, flattened playing surface, but does not sacrifice the superb tone and sustain associated with phosphor bronze strings. Flat Tops greatly reduce finger noise and are excellent for recording and flat-picking.    

  • D'Addario's popular extra-light gauging with an exclusive precision polishing process for reduced finger noise

  • Made in the U.S.A. for the highest quality and performance
  • String Gauges: Plain Steel .010, .014, Phosphor Bronze Wound .023, .030, .039, .047

In 1974, D'Addario pioneered the use of phosphor bronze wire for the winding of acoustic guitar strings. D'Addario phosphor bronze strings were an instant and enduring success. A more costly alloy, phosphor bronze was widely known as a durable, long-lasting material used in machine bushings and bearings. After months of searching, a wire company was located that agreed to make sample wires for testing on music strings. The results made history. D'Addario phosphor bronze strings are bright sounding and retain their brilliance longer than other bronze and brass alloys.

Round wound phosphors are available in 6 different gauges for 6 string guitar, 3 gauges for 12 string, and 4 gauges in the Flat Tops series. Flat Tops are round wound phosphor bronze strings that are lightly polished to reduce finger noise and fret wear and are an excellent choice for noise-free recording.
