With the Plectrum series, Dr Thomastik-infeld have created a remarkable set of Acoustic Guitar strings that have redefined what a player should expect from their strings!
The combination of lower overall tension and the hybrid arrangement of the wound strings which all feature silk inlays (for precise overtone balance) and a highly flexible steel core, produces a beautiful, sweet sounding, almost classical tone.
Plectrums will make you rethink what a Bronze wound string should be with the typical warmth of bronze along with the easy playability that one would expect from of a fine set of jazz strings.
HYBRID STRING MIX
The Hybrid nature of the wound strings is part of the “secret recipe” for the wonderful tone and playability of Thomastik Plectrum strings. Depending on the set, Thomastik may use Round Wound or Flat Wound strings – or a combination of both – and Brass Plated plain steels.
The AC211 12 string set for example, consists of the following strings combination; Other than the Roundwound Low E (.050″), the other wound strings are all Flatwound.
Each wound string has a silk inlay which results in a balanced, lighter tension string that feels wonderful under your fingers.
Gauges: .011 .011 .014 .014 .019 .009 .027 .012 .036 .016 .050 .022.
Additionally, because of their low, evenly balanced tensions, Dr Thomastik-infeld Plectrum strings can extend the playing life of many fine older guitars with weak bracing or other special age conditions. Give them a quick wipe-over after playing and you should also be astounded as to how long they last.
The Thomastik-Infeld Plectrum formula is famous the world over for providing legendary superb tone over the long life of the string with wonderful playability.
If you appreciate good tone and a fine touch, you owe it to yourself to try these strings, even once…you may just never turn back!
