    Have you tried Daddario half rounds?

    I have 12 sets of 12-52 half rounds for sale, if anyone is interested.

    I have been using his strings the last two years. For me they last at a minimum 90 days, currently with no gigs the set on my Gretsch is now pushing 6 months.

    I confess I have not. Are they pretty similar to regular flatwounds?

    They're really like halfway in between flats and rounds in terms of both sound and feel.
