Vintage-style flatwound strings for a warm, mellow tone.

The Ernie Ball P02582 Flatwound electric guitar strings deliver a warm, mellow tone reminiscent of vintage jazz and R&B. With their flat ribbon wrap and tin-plated steel cores, these strings produce smooth fundamentals with a dark, rounded character. The stainless steel flat ribbon wrap is polished to a glass-like finish that virtually eliminates finger noise, making these strings a favorite among jazz players and studio recording artists. The P02582 flatwounds have a medium light gauge that provides excellent playability while retaining rich low end.

Achieve a Smooth Vintage Tone

The flat ribbon wrap is the key to the P02582's smooth, vintage tone. Unlike roundwound strings, the flat ribbon wrap significantly reduces finger noise and harmonic overtones. This allows the fundamental tone of each note to shine through with a mellow, rounded quality. The polished steel wrap glides easily under your fingers for great playability. Combined with the warm, mid-focused tone, these strings are ideal for jazz, blues, R&B and clean electric styles.

Cores and Wraps Built for Reliable Intonation

At the heart of the P02582 strings are hexagonal steel cores tin-plated for corrosion resistance and consistent, reliable intonation over time. The cores are paired with flat stainless steel ribbon wraps polished to a smooth finish. This pairing allows the strings to sing with excellent intonation while producing a vintage tone. The stainless steel wrap is also durable for long life. Restring your guitar with P02582 flatwounds when you want that classic sound.
