    Wondering if anyone uses half round strings. are have used them in past and how did you like them. I've used round wound fore ever and like them. just thought of trying something different. i have found since i bought an ibanez sr500 with active eq it's much harder to dail in the sound i'm looking for. i play mainly blues and country and light rock. no slapping.
  2. I don't use half-rounds, but based on what I've read, people tend to have love-hate relationships with them.

    If you want to try something different from regular rounds, I would suggest either the GHS Pressurewounds or the La Bella Quarter Rounds.
    trothwell and Dave Reichle like this.
