When will Sadowsky flatwound guitar strings be available.  Are single strings available when I order a set?

Wizard,

You might want to try the Sadowsky Round Wound Nickle strings. (Black SBN45B)

Prior to taking delivery of my RV5 this past November, I only played flats. I was looking for a brigher tone without sounding brassy and had my RV5 set up with the Black SBN45B strings. I've not looked back! I find that I can get a  real bright funky slap tone or a very round fat punchy Motown tone, without sounding muddy,  simply by adjusting the tone controls.  In my opinion, these strings are certainly worth a try.

Roger, What strings are now being supplied on a new Jim Hall archtop?  Can you recommend a string set similar to your flatwound series (no longer available)?  Please respond, your flatwounds were the best strings I have used in the past 50 years.

We are currently using D'Addario Chromes....although I will be the first to admit they are a very different string than our flat wounds.

Thank you for your quick response, Roger.  You right, the D'Addario string are very popular but do not begin to compare with your"world class" flatwounds.  I wish they would be available again. Sad

best wishes,
