still my favorites
Not much to say really...I've been using D'Addario EXL110 Nickle Wound .10-.46 for years. My favorite strings hands down. Great sounding and super stable. Keep your guitar wiped down and they'll last. I use a dab of rubbing alcohol on a soft cloth and it cleans the grime...the alcohol evaporates quickly and doesn't harm the finish on any of my guitars (Fenders...Gibsons...Reverends...Ibanez...Taylors).
Great value. Bright and responsive strings.
They're good strings. It was a good deal.
Back in my hardcore gigging days, I struggled to find a brand of strings that would hold up to how I played. A 45 minute set would normally result in a string break until I found these - still stand by them to this day, 10 years later, as the only string I will use. Great strings that stand up to the abuse!
Bought a 10-pack at Gearfest. Great deal for some awesome strings!
Always had success with D'Addario strings. I recommend them to everyone. As always, great customer service and fast shipping from the folks at Sweetwater! I appreciate you guys. Thanks
Some of the best I have used.
For years, I've been playing Ernie Ball and really loved them aside from the all-too-frequent breakage issues and the oxidation within days of use.
I've now been playing D'Addarios for about month at a handful of gigs and these strings ar great! All the tone you expect out of an Ernie Ball but without the breakage and oxidation -- and I bend strings quite heavily and sweat a good bit onstage. I was actually able to use one set of strings over two weeks and two gigs and they still have plenty of life in them and look in great shape.
very pleased, thank you.
D'Addario strings have always been a favorite of mine and the cost of the 10-pak makes it super affordable. Not to mention the free shipping, how easy is that?
Can't beat these strings for the price I use them a lot in my shop and my customers love them
Just got another guitar in today and it had flat wound strings on it. I know that when I cant bend a D string on the 12th fret.......was up wit dat? So these unknown brand strings are coming off and a new set of D'Addarios are going on. I use them on all eight of my guitars and find it hard to even consider anything else. Ernie Ball Cobalt's have got to be really good to convince me. In the mean time......if it aint broke....!
I've been playing guitar since the mid 70s and was introduced to D'Addario strings for electric guitar early on. I had a music store in upstate NY for a time and we always did well with D'Addario strings for the electric instruments. I've always had great success with them. They are consistently good, wear well, hold their ring even under the grueling conditions of sweaty live shows. I have never found a flaw that would cause me to have to replace them immediately, which gives me the confidence I need to keep using them. I've tried other strings, just to see if there is a reason for me to switch and, while there are plenty of good strings out there, there is no point in my switching now. With a thirty plus year track record of great success, why would I want to, right? Yep I'm very happy with these excellent strings. The icing on the cake: Sweetwater's Gearfest pricing. Again, thank you to my friends at Sweetwater for helping make my summer touring more pleasant. I always appreciate folks looking out for the working pros.
Great strings; been using them for years. They hold up very well in our humid environment in Florida.
Noticed a recent change in packaging where two strings are now wrapped together. I don't like this, preferring the old way of each string coiled individually. Not a big deal, but did force a change in how I like to change my strings...Most likely some type of cost saving effort at the factory.
Good strings, responsible packaging. And save those colorful ball ends to make some cool jewelry!
While these aren't the coolest strings out there that are made of God only knows what, these are certainly my ol' faithfuls. I rarely break a string, they last a good amount of time, and they sound great.
I bought these strings and they worked and sounded great when I first put them on my guitar. I played one 40 minute set, but about 20 minutes into the next set I tried playing I broke a string. It hasn't been more than 2 days before this one broke. And if they're like this all the time I would suggest buying a different brand.
