D addario Chromes

The only flatwound in the Daddario family and therefore their most mellow string. Chromes have received excellent reviews from users.

Chromes have been highly praised on many forums and reviews for having a quality that justifies what can be a higher pricetag than many other flatwounds. The strings strike a really favorable balance between the smooth feel and diminished finger noise of flats, while still being clear and bright enough to sound good in the mix. Highly recommended.

Here is a video that really lets you hear the chromes with a variety of EQ and playing styles. I find the clarity and variety of sounds available really impressive, especially for a smooth flatwound string.
