    I play round wounds .012-.052 on all my Guitars....I played a duo gig recently with Pete Bernstein and he uses John Pearse Round wounds. Pete makes up his own sets, different gauges...Most jazz players use flats...I hate Flats....Always have....
    Vic, what brand(s) do you favor?
    Allan Johnson told me that Barry Galbraith always used rounds too.
    Not to get too deep into the string thing but I've talked to people who swear that round core strings vibrate better (more true?) than hex core. Any thoughts.

    I believe he uses John Pearse 2700 and changes the first two strings to 014 and 018. It's what I do too :) My favorite archtop strings.

    Hey Jorge,

    Thanks! Can I ask where you usually purchase your strings from?, a local shop ect.?

    Hi Ben, I am in Portugal so I get them from Strings Direct (UK). The 014 and 018 strings I just buy the cheapest brand by the bulk, they're all the same anyway.
