I've used these for years and they always satisfy!I've gone thru many brands and this is the one I rely upon. I rarely suffer from strings breaking (knock on wood!). I can keep a set on for weeks sometimes months and they keep on going. These are especially great for floyd rose setups. They bend awesomely. Just give them a good stretching when stringing up and they're good to go. Very stable. They have great shelf life. Granted, I've quite a few guitars so I can go thru a box relatively quickly. But I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a box even if you have only one guitar and change strings once a month. I string my Hamers, Strats, Ibanez and LPs with these. I have them on a couple of teles as well. Except for one tele (an old one) which I always string with Roto 10s for it's unique tone and feel. (but those wear out quickly and get dull). On my Hamer Special FM, they are really great and so comfortable to play. The tone I get from that guitar with these strings is awesome.

Great strings all aroundIve been playing a long time and I've tried a LOT of different strings.
I always wind up back with D"addario strings eventually..
The tone IMHO i checks all my boxes for what a good set of strings encompasses . I usually buy two boxes of ten sets at a time. That sums up how much I like this company. I also use their nylon strings for my classical guitar

Best Strings on the PlanetI have been using XL120's for about 21 years. When I first started playing I had nothing but trouble with every other brand of strings, they either broke easily or cost too much for a teenager. The D'Addario's were endorsed, at the time, by guys like Satriani and Vai so how could I have gone wrong. And even though I still can't play like those shredders I can appreciate a great string. Buy 'em you'll love 'em.

Best strings madeAs a player of 35+ years, the feel of a string becomes more critical each day. The second most critical aspect is longevity. I switched to D’Addario several years ago after a near lifetime with another brand and I am very happy I did. Fantastic sounding string that feels great and lasts.
