Agreed on the improved sound noted in many reviews here, but I am most impressed with the improved playability of these strings over the Pyramids. I have always felt the harsh, high tension characteristics were just an artifact of insisting on playing a Rickenbacker, but the Thomastik Infeld are absolutely perfect, both in feel and intonation, as if they were actually made for my 610/12 as currently set-up. Very expensive, but thrilling to have the exact, right strings.

These strings intoneate with the 6 block saddle, on my 330 / 12 Fire glo Rick. No need to purchase the 12 block bridge!

Mostly, so I feel, flat wound strings can sound dull and thuddy. Paired with octave strings in a 12 string set, this thuddiness can work for you, especially when teamed up with a compression/sustain pedal. And this is where the TI Jazz Flats perform very well. Although quite expensive, they do last a long time. I had the previous set on my Rickenbacker 360/12 string guitar for several years, and only changed the whole set when one of the 10s broke while I was tuning the guitar.

These strings have been my favorites for my Rickenbacker 360-12. Smooth, great feel! Livelier sounding than Pyramids, but not brash like the round-wounds I've tried. Played through a JangleBox into a clean tube amp, you'll get "that sound." If you don't know what I mean, listen to Roger McGuinn, Tom Petty, George Harrison, etc. Yeah - it really is "that sound."

This set gives you THE SOUND of the classic Rickenbacker 12 string that you have filed away in your head that's been imprinted from years of listening to records and radio. It's not an approximation..It ain't "close".. This is IT. You'll play Byrd songs all night . A++

I've recently put Thomastik/Infeld strings on all my guitars and basses. When it came time to do the electric 12 string, I was discouraged to find that Thomastik does not sell an electric 12 string set. But P of the Ricks turned up on a google search - this merchant puts a wonderful custom flat wound set for those in jingle jangle morning crowd that simply won't use anything but T.I. strings. Super! The responsive quality of these strings offsets the rather crowded feel of the 12 string neck to make the guitar sing like never before.

You can't get any better. Yes, they are expensive, but they maintain their playability longer, which offsets the price.

Just completed construction of my first guitar - a 24.75" scale 12 string. Read the reviews and (skeptically) bought the Thomastiks. Worth every cent. The sound is tight, intonation is easy and they stay in tune for days. The only thing I wonder is if other flat wounds (cheaper) would perform as well. However, if these strings last as long as other reviews suggest, I will never use anything else.

I'm a new owner of a Rickenbacker 330-12. I've always known that flatwound strings are a must for these guitars if you want the perfect sound and these strings nail it! As stated, these Thomastiks are a custom set and they fit just fine on a Rickenbacker, without having to file the nut. After putting these strings on, my guitar never sounded so alive! The feel of the strings are fantastic and they play great, plus they stay in tune very well. They are pricier than many other strings out there but this set is of the best quality! The Thomastik-Infeld custom 12-string set from Pick of the Ricks is the only set of strings I'll put on my Rickenbacker. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Yes , the are pricey - but worth every penny! They have a silky feel , and although it may be counter-intuitive : low tension and a nice ring to them.
If you are into the sound of the British Invasion and the attendant spin-offs,
this is the set that gets you there. And the price is mitigated by the fact that these strings last a very long time. Very , very long. So if you're on the fence about getting them , jump in! You will not be disappointed.
