A few weeks ago, I had a string break which hasn't happened in a while though I knew I was pounding my set of strings hard; day in, day out I have been practicing and playing with a few buddies though my set of Ernie Ball hybrids (orange pack) took the beating well.

After which, I decided to try another brand of string and since I was listening to Guthrie Govan a LOT, I thought it may be a good idea to try Rotosound strings. Headed over to my local guitar shop, all they had were Roto 11's. I was contemplating for a good 5 minutes on what to do because I had a horrible experience with a set of D'addario acoustic strings and didn't want that to happen again...but I decided to tempt faith. Bought a pack of EXL110s, went home, and cleaned and set up my guitar as I do with each string change.

Once I put on that new set though, my guitar was SET! They have a different feel to them compared to Ernie Ball strings though I actually found them incredibly easier to play. The strings actually felt like they were ready to play right out of the pack and hardly needed any sort of stretching. They are a tad bright though at the same time have a VERY balanced tone which I liked. With Ernie Ball sets, a difference in gauge can be a difference in tone though the reason for buying hybrid sets (9s on the top, 10s on the bottom) was to accomodate my lead playing with the rhythm. Though with these D'addario strings, I felt like I didn't even need any custom gauges or hybrid sets.

I can't deny that my guitar setup didn't help though considering I adjusted neck relief and action again which helped tremendously though the tone of these strings has been consistent for close to a month now and I've been playing EVERY day for at least 2 hours.

I'd say D'addario did a great job and I must say that Musicians Friend has a great deal on here! Next pay check, definitely getting myself a 3-pack.

Have used these on Fender Stratocasters, Gibson Les Pauls (both HBs and P90s), Jackson (Scot Ian), and Parker Fly and Nitefly. I like the tonal expression of these strings through single-coil PUPs, less so with HBs. These strings express a crisp, bright, warm sound and ringing timbre. I see the principal contraindication of these strings is the extraordinary finger noise generated when playing lead aggressively. This phenomenon is generally true of round wound strings but this model takes it to a new level.

    I have been using EXL-110 strings for over 35 years. During that time I've tried other brands and have always gone back to the D'Addarios. They are the most consistent out of the pack of every brand I have tried.

            I'm a bassist. I play a Steinberger Synapse headless bass. Comes with a soft case which is OK but not good enough to load the bass in with the rest of the bnd gear. This case was the right size overall and with a few internal cutouts, fits the Steinie pretty well.

                Comments about D'Addario EXL110 Nickel Light Electric Guitar Strings 3-Pack:

                Before NYXL Strings came out, these were the best sounding and longest lasting electric guitar strings, in my humble opinion. I continue to buy and play the XL series because they reach a 9 on a scale of 1 to 10 in terms of quality. If you divide the quality by cost, you get value. High Quality/Low Cost = Great Value. When I want the best and have some money to splurge, I go for NYXL these days. I would say they are the Ultra Premiums in the world of strings. But D'Addario XLs are a premium product at about one third the cost of NYXLs. When you've got more than a couple of axes that you want to keep outfitted with fresh strings, I think D'Addario XLs are an excellent choice!

                  The greatest thing about this purchase was how fast my replacement arrived. I called in to check on order and was told it was delivered. When I explained I had not recieved it, within 3 day I found my replacement in my mailbox. Musicians Friends will always be my firsr and last pick!
