EHR370's combine the playability of a traditional 11-49 set with the benefits of an exclusive "Half Round" manufacturing process.

D'Addario Half Rounds Electric Guitar Strings are round wound with stainless steel and then precision ground leaving the outer surface smooth and "semi flat." The result is a string with the tone and tension characteristics of round wound strings, with a smoother feel, similar to flat wound strings.

  • Centerless ground stainless steel delivers round wound tension with a flatwound feel
  • Environmentally friendly, corrosion resistant packaging for strings that are always fresh

    I have been using D'addario Half Round Stainless Steel Strings for well over a Decade. I think strings are a personal preference thing. I like the way they feel, they stay in tune and last a very long time. I whole heartedly recommend this great product.

    If you hate finger squeak of roundwounds these are the strings for you. Flatwounds can be dull sounding and these halfwounds stay quiet yet give a fairly bright sound. As another poster said these strings feel rough at first but once played for a while the feel tends to "smoothen out". If you want a great string for a clean sound then these should fill the bill nicely for you.

    I use these on a CIJ Jaguar with Antiquity II pups. The surface of the wound strings has a rough texture that doesn't feel right, they also have more friction on the frets when you're trying to bend. I didn't like the feel at first, but I still keep using them (just on this one guitar) because they give it an interesting tone, rather different than either round-wounds or the Chromes. It gets a nice twang and good clear output.

    I tried these on a Godin 5th Avenue Kinpin, after using 3 sets of thomastik infeld flatwounds and the strings that came with the guitar. While they sounded fine, they felt very weird and I did not feel comfortable sliding my fingers on them at all. Also, you don't usually notice the way strings look one way or the other but these may be the ugliest strings I have ever put on a guitar. I am now using D'Addario Chrome flatwound strings and am much happier with them.
