Hard on electric guitar strings? Sweetwater guitarists are excited about D'Addario NYXL strings because they sound great, bend farther, and stay in tune better - even after a couple of sweaty gigs - than just about anything else we've played. D'Addario uses a high carbon steel core with a unique "fusion twist" process for the plain strings. NYXL's reformulated nickel plated string windings have increased magnetic properties that give you higher output and juiced midrange for greater presence and crunch. If you're dissatisfied with your electric guitar strings, give D'Addario NYXL strings an audition. You'll be impressed.

D'Addario - Making strings for over 300 years

Behind every set of D'Addario strings are over three centuries of fine craftsmanship. The D'Addario family tradition began in the tiny town of Salle, Italy in 1680 where they made assorted instrument strings for over two hundred years before relocating to New York in 1905. As the modern string making industry began to develop, the D'Addario family emerged as innovators by designing the winding machine most string makers still use today. And while their techniques have modernized, the pride that goes into each set of strings dates back to the D'Addario family's earliest roots.

What a difference!

I'm a long-time acoustic guitar player, and picked up electric over the past year. I've been using the Cleartone lights on a Gibson ES-339 Studio. (Tried the Elixir lights, didn't like them.) Based on some reviews I decided to try the NYXL Lights. What an amazing difference! I used them yesterday for 2 services on our church's worship team. They completely changed both the feel and the sound of my guitar for the better. Perfect tone, and the playability is awesome! They feel like butter.

NYXL Strings

I don't normally talk about strings, have tried lots of different makes, I have to say these are my favorite strings to date, they take some stick, bend , very stable , keep there tone for a long time, they feel good and sound great. My only small criticism is I wish they were a little cheaper .Other than that these are first class Strings very musical.
Music background: I like playing,and making music.

The best!

These strings stay in tune better than any I've used. The output level is greater also. You get what you pay for with these strings...not just hipe!


I received a set of these during the Beta test for D'Addario, and all I can say is WOW!!! Cannot rave about these strings enough. I have always used D'Addario strings and never had any idea they could get better...I was however, wrong. These are standard on all of my guitars.

Five sets instead of One

I had been waiting awhile for sweetwater to stock these strings because I love their service. When I ordered these strings, I was only expecting one set. However, what I got was a box that had a total of 5 sets of NYXLs! Thanks Sweetwater!!!!
