D'Addario

D'Addario Chrome Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings are revered for their warm tone and ultra-smooth feel. Stainless steel underwindings on hex cores build a foundation for the delicate outer ribbon winding. After the winding is applied, each string goes through 3 polishing steps. Great for classic jazz tone and rockabilly twang.

D'Addario's environment-friendly string packaging does away with the nylon plastic outer envelope, paper insert, and paper envelopes for each string. The strings come inside a 100% recyclable cardboard package that inhibits string corrosion.

D'Addario environmental string sets are now being made with new, brighter colored ball ends. The colored ball ends are specially coated with a new paint (green, red, purple...) that is easily recognizable and makes it even easier for you to identify each string.


Good strings mean good tone. Order a few replacement sets now.

      Comments about D'Addario ECG23 Chrome Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      I use D'addario strings on all my instruments! They have the best sound quality and last longer then any comparable set. I use the flat wound extra light chromes on my jazz guitar, the EX110 on my fender jaguar, and EJ15 on my flat top acoustic Martin. These strings bring out the best tones in all of my instruments. I don't think I would change to any other brand.

      Nice smooth feel. Great for Jazz or anyone who doesn't like a lot of string noise. Very good for blues also. Fairly easy to bend. Great price for value.

        As my title suggests, I love these strings! I play a fusion of jazz, blues, rock. Very smooth and comfortable feel.

        For what it's worth, I use them on a Gibson Midtown Standard and a Gibson Nighthawk Studio.

        Silk Smooth Noiseless

            Comments about D'Addario ECG23 Chrome Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

            Came upon these by accident when a mom & pop music store was going out of business and these were the only "10s" on the shelf. Now I only buy these and only here for the great discount from the usual seventeen to twenty-four Georges at brick and mortars charge.

            Smoothest and quietest strings out there. The little e and the b are also polished and easy to keep cleaned.
            I'm a wound g string guy, so it's a bonus that these come with a wound .020 g, saving my a couple Georges buying a wound .020 from the spare box in music stores.
            I will say that you might have to cut on your g string nut slot, as most electrics are set for no more than a .014 in that slot.
            Also if you have extremely low action you might have to do a corrective setup on your axe, as these strings aren't for thumping.

            If you're dedicated to the twang of slinkys/pro steels then steer clear of these.
            Myself, I just like the softer easier pliability and playing of these, and have no problem going to a Dunlop nylon .38mm pick to accommodate them. But yeah if you're a shredder and bend on the g then maybe these aren't for you.

                I record music for film and tv and needed to eliminate all squeaks from my recordings. This string not only did that they sound and play unbelievable in any genre. best thing that ever happened to my Strat.

                  Seems like I've used them forever... exclusively. And they seem to last forever. They don't accumulate dirt so they're easy to keep clean and keep their proper tone. Color-coded ends make for no mistakes when putting them on, under virtually any lighting conditions.

                  Comments about D'Addario ECG23 Chrome Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

                  I would recomend the A'ddario products to others.
                  I bought these strings after reading a interview with Kenny Vaughn, guitar player for Marty Stuart. I thought I would try them on my 52 Telecaster, wow what a change. I still have the Tele twang for country but can do Jazz and pop music as well. They are mellow sounding but can still get the sound I am striving for. I like the 10 gauge strings

                  I am going to put a set on my ES335 as I play a lot of finger style; chet Atkins style; Merle Travis style and up to modern country.

                  Smooth and Sweet Sounding

                  Comments about D'Addario ECG23 Chrome Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

                  I would at least recommend trying these out one time to see how they feel. I do most of my playing on an acoustic and find it hard to grab barre chords. When I got my Gretsch, my friend recommended trying these strings because it would make it easier to play barre chords. He was definitely right. These strings feel almost the same as nylon strings--a very silky feeling. They are definitely a different feel from a standard electric guitar string, but I enjoy playing my Gretsch much more with these strings.
                  I put these strings on my Gretsch 5120 and what an improvement from the factory installed strings. Maybe the guitar doesn't have as much twang, but these strings give it a nice smooth sound. Much easier to grab barre chords and to slide up and down the neck. I won't go back to any other strings for this guitar. i love them!
                  Can't go wrong with D' Addario strings, but I haven't tried any other flat wound strings to compare these to.
                  Great value for the price.

                  These strings go well with the vintage stagger pickups on my Stratocaster. The wound G string eliminates the harshness I get with plain G strains. I also like the smooth feel of these strings, no finger squeak.

                  I put these on my Epi Swingster and a "POS" SG copy 3 months ago. Easy on fingers and picks. they in tune as good or better than most. I just ordered 3 more sets, I just picked up a Fender AM Standard and a Gibson LP Studio.
