    I been using these strings for 12 yrs and only broke 3. Less is More on these babies, I mean Price versus Quality...Used Ernie Balls prior to these and would break one everynight, hard bending.. Started using these and quit breaking and started makin music again without worry about when it was going to happen.It wasn't bad saddles or rough frets that was breaking Ernies it was lack of Quality !!!! D Addario's XL 10-46's are the ticket to playing all night without breaking a string. I never use them more than 2 shows or 8 hrs ,so I have never wore a set out in the Tone department. Order a 10 pack and be on ur way....

    I usually break these things like crazy which is why I don't usually them, but today I was recording a solo and the G broke when I did a 1/4 bend. The strings are only about 3 weeks old. I'll never buy D'Addarios again. Don't waste your time, GHS strings are more expensive but they sound better, play faster, and last as long as you want them to. However, I did give these strings a 9 in value because since they're so cheap, you can at least *afford* to break them all the time.

      Comments about D'Addario EXL110 Nickel Light Electric Guitar Strings 10-Pack:

      I've tried most of the brands sold by Musician's Friend and the XL's won out.

      They are full, but clear-sounding strings that are very simple. No-frills to be had here unless we get into D'Addario's environmentally-friendly points program.

      They don't really ever break and I've played them for centuries! If they did break it was probably due to some error installing the strings.

      I love these better than the NYXL, ProSteel and EXP strings - although I wish the XL's had the string life of the coated strings, but without the coating. Oh, well, they're affordable in bulk, right? Right.

      I'd say go out and buy a set (or sets) of these strings, but who's never tried D'Addario strings before???

        I've tried most all of them over the years & many years it's been. But long ago a friend/ guitar tech. turned me on to D'addario strings & told me all about these and ever since it's been the only brand I use for most everything! Always consistent, longer lasting & good tone, guitar or bass, acoustic whatever. A few times I'll try another brand & they never quite seem to cut the mustard! A great Standard you can trust & that's Important!

          I thought this set of 10 was a great buy. The XL strings have never let me down. Lasting a long time, they clean up well if you let your guitar sit without playing for a while.

          I also liked the slim packaging. 10 packs fit in a box the size of 3 packs would fit in.

            Comments about D'Addario EXL110 Nickel Light Electric Guitar Strings 10-Pack:

            I have been using the EXL-114 for a LONG LONG time and have been very happy with them. I purchased a new guitar (American Fender Strat Deluxe) for a new project and don't drop D tune that often, so no real need for top 10s heavy bottom strings. Just using regular 10s now for this guitar. After trying A LOT of different strings, the D'Addario EXL's are my favorite. Everyone's hands/fingers are different so just because they work for me doesn't mean they work for everyone, but I'd definitely recommend giving them a try! I rarely have breaking issues, and when I do it's on a guitar with a trem and usually due to that.

                            Coming from a D'Add customer for over 30 yrs.:

                            With all the different spins on strings these days, if you're a little confused by all the different offerings even by just one company, & you want a string that won't mess with the neck (unless you jump gauges) easy on the fingers, & IMO is the most consistent string set on the market which should be most important not to just pros but beginners/intermediates who don't want to bother with "Why is my gtr. harder to play?" or "Why is it buzzing/rattling?":

                            Then, get these.
