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.

My New Favorite Strings.

I used to be a Dean Markley guy and wouldn't use any other string. Upon trying these strings, that changed almost instantaneously. Now I never want to use any other kind of string for my Jag. These things are impeccable in my opinion. Bright and balanced, hold their tune amazingly after bends, and clear as bell when I over-distort my amp. They also have a very impressive life span. I'm the type that don't change strings until they start to lose their tone so usually every 2-3 months rather than every month. These were the first strings I had to change simply because I wanted to clean and condition my fretboard. After months of playing they sounded just as good as they did the day they were changed which amazed me. These strings are worth every penny and you owe it to yourself to try them. I promise you won't be disappointed! Plus, who doesn't love a sticker from their pack of strings?

So far, so good!

I've been hearing about these for a long time and finally decided to try them. I haven't had them on long, but they are excellent so far! I've been a dedicated Ernie Ball STHB fan for a long time, but if these hold up like they claim to... I may have a new favorite. Also, I won't buy from anyone else! I have made several purchases from Sweetwater and I keep expecting them to slip up because customer service is a dying art in this world. Ken Davis just keeps stepping up the game and making other stores look pathetic! Sweetwater fan for life!!

Great feel and bright tone

I had been using Ernie Ball Skinny Top Heavy Bottoms on a couple guitars for a long time and decided to give these an audition after hearing multiple rave reviews. They're definitely worth the hype! They feel better and sound amazing. Crisp and bright with higher output than the EBs. The wound strings actually feel a bit smoother on the fingers. I've only had them on my Les Paul for a couple weeks, so I can't say how long they'll last, but if they make it three months (which everyone I talk to says they do) they'll have paid for themselves. I honestly don't think I want to go back to the EB STHB's now!

The strings that ACTUALLY make a differance in your tone!

For once a product that actually lives up to the advertising - they DO last longer, bend further, get in tube quicker and stay there longer. This is the first time I can actually say I changed strings and truly heard a change in my tone - there is a touch more output and a touch more midrange. Once I tried these strings I was blown away, and I will never go back to plain strings again!

Love these for Drop D

This gauge is perfect for keeping fat tones when you drop the bottom E to a D. Raise your action just a touch and you can have some seriously huge tones with this gauge. Love em. The .52 keeps the low string tension high even when you down tune a bit. Could probably get away with drop C or D standard. Plus these aren't as coarse as the EB Cobalts. They are good too, but not like these.
