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....

Living in a resort town I play a lot of outdoor gigs. The salt air and humidity are murder on strings. No matter what kind you use they go dead pretty quick, so I usually just get the cheapest thing I can find and change them all the time. They all sound good when they're brand new. The D'addarios had a good tone, they stayed in tune quite well, and they lasted a little longer than some other brands. Overall I was satisfied with them, but as I said before, I just get the cheapest thing I can find and they don't always fit that description.

      Probably function exactly as guitar strings should, but thinking of replacing just one broken string? Think again! Guess I missed that part of the description that mentions strings not being individually wrapped. If you always change all your strings at the same time, get yerself some nice cheap strings. But if you ever change one string at a time, consider yourself warned. These are pretty useless to me. Booooooo!

          These strings are a good fit for all my guitars. They bend easily and provide smooth action, tone, response and overall playability. I prefer to stock them for myself in separate sets because I change them all at once. The used strings are useful too for many projects, specially the unwound G string, it works great in cheese cutters.

              I use these on all of my electrics guitars(except jazz guitars). They came installed on my American made G&L's and worked great, so I started using them on everything. They keep their tone a long time, and stay in tune well. I've used all of the major brands over the years, but now I just buy a 10-pack of these.

                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.

                      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.
