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 NYXL1254 electric strings feature a high-carbon steel 3rd/G-string, providing you with more flexibility than traditional 12-gauge electric strings.

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.

Love this gauge 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.


If I could put 0 stars I would they litterally fell apart on me and they were not even on for 2 weeks. This is stupid and a waste of money.
