Can't beat these strings for tone and long life , excellent playability too- low tension and no noise from finger drag. Despite being flatwound they have a clear , bell-like tone that was often heard in the 60's recordings and newer alt-rock. Expensive but worth it! Longest lasting strings I have ever used , even outlast coated strings. And a sound that is truly wonderful.

Ok, you didn’t buy this guitar for its price and versatility. You wanted a particular kind of sound and you were willing to pay a price for it. These strings play like no other to transcend you into Byrd’s moksha! Believe me, your Ric purchase is not truly complete until these things are on it! You will not be disappointed!

If you want your Rickenbacker 12 string to sound like the recordings from the 60's, these are the strings to get. The string gauges and tension are identical to the Rickenbacker Electro brand strings that were originally installed on these guitars. They may seem expensive, but these strings last a very long time so in the long run you actually save money using them. Great tone and a great feeling add up to a great string!

Just got my 360/12 C63 Ric back from my luthier after these strings were installed. Ease of play is 100% better!!! Highly Recommend!!!!

What have I learned? Change your strings on a Rick12 more often!!! I got my Rick12 back today. I had the guy put on the Thomastik-Infelds that a friend recommended I purchase from Pick of the Ricks. So thanks for offering them for sale!! Anyway.....my 1980 Rick12 sounds like a brand new guitar!! It even seems easier to play! I'm very happy!! Now if I could only get the first joints of my pudgy fingers to slim down..... that's a Rick12 inside joke.....

Bought a Rick 370. Was pretty disappointed in it's play ability. Got the Truss Rod Socket here and make the neck as bow free and flat as I could, changed to Thomastiks from the round wound put on by the previous owner. Restringing a Rick 12 is a real learning experience as you no doubt know. Did the bridge height and have the strings at .004 at fret 7 with capo on first fret and a full intonation on the six bridge. Guitar plays like butter. These are the strings to use on a Rick.

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."
