    Absolutely Amazing Strings!

    I used to use these on an Ibanez S370 electric that I sold a few years ago. Well a couple years ago I bought a brand new Ibanez RG3EXFM1 which I loved as soon as I first played it, and now it's like an old friend. These D'Addario's came stock on it and I've always been impressed by the tone and feel of them.

    I'm mostly a rhythm guitarist and I play a lot of punk rock and metal, but there are some lead parts that I've written and learned, and I don't play only fast stuff.

    When I broke the high E string and I didn't have a new set of strings for my RG I was basically lost. Yes I have other guitars but you know how it is with your favorite instrument. I very rarely break a string but I own 3 electric guitars and it looks like I really need to keep more extra sets around. I do have to admit that those strings on my RG were very old, they lasted way longer than any strings could be expected to. So I came here and bought a couple sets of these. I just got them today and restrung my RG, and I could not be happier! Just the tone and feel I love! These strings really seem perfect to me, always performing beyond my expectations.

    Also I recently bought a used Ibanez RGR, which was the electric I used while my favored RG was out of commission. Anyway the guy I bought the RGR from had put on a different brand of strings right before I bought it. I don't know if I'm allowed to say what they are but they are very popular strings and are among the top rated. Anyway these D'Addario's sound WAY better. I find that sliding between power chords sounds much better with these strings than with the others. The other strings really failed to impress me, so I will shortly be putting D'Addario's on the RGR.

    These D'Addario's are what I have always bought, and now it looks like they're what I always will buy!

    As always, thank you Musician's Friend! And thank you for the amazing strings D'Addario!

    The sound quality is actually decent I must admit. However they will not last and I don't play very either as I usually play bluesy stuff. Despite their decent sound, I'd rather not have to change at least one string every practice (broke 2 back to back at a gig last weekend and they were only a week and a half old). I would say their only real place is as a backup string for a gig if you break one, nothing more.
    I usually use DR strings but the local store has been out of them for a while, purchased these instead, long story short I've already broken 5 of these strings in about half the time it takes me to break one DR.
    Only thing about these is they are about as cheap as it gets, but then again the DRs I usually use arent much more. But, still they're cheap.

        I was trying different brands to see what i like the best and after using about five different brands these have to be the worst! Stick with Ernie Ball and save yourself time because these wore so quickly it wasnt even worth the money or the time to put them on. DO NOT BUY!

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

          For years I've used Ernie Ball strings, and had them start tarnishing and losing their spank in about two weeks time. Recently I had some work done on a guitar, and my luthier put on some D'Addarios, man what a difference! Tone is a clearer (though a little less crunchy/gutsy) but these strings last considerably longer under my fingers. Ernie won't be seeing any more of my cash any time soon.

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

              Avoids excessive sensitivity to pick attack and inadvertently bending strings out of tune when playing demanding chord forms, unlike extra light strings, but still easy enough to play and bend for soloing.

              Good, uniform pickup response. Probably best for solid body guitars.

              D'Addario strings can be relied upon to perform consistently from set to set. I feel confident that after trying this one set, I can order a larger quantity for a better price without unpleasant surprises.

              These are my favorite strings. Great for standard and drop d. Can handle drop c, but there are better string gauges for that tuning. These strings sound and feel amazing and can take a beating. My only complaint is that they do not last very long, but its not horrible. Bottom line I recommend these strings.

                    These are great strings, no better or worse than Ernie Ball Slinkys. They tend to be cheaper than Slinkys and they are a bit brighter. I use these XLs on some guitars and Slinkys on others and sometimes switch them around.

                          I am learning guitar off Rocksmith 2014. First mistake I made was tightening the wrong string and breaking it at the tuning stage. I put in a set of these and it sounded great.

                          The strings were color coded so the switching went fast. My acoustic guitar uses pegs. Make sure you have a peg remover ready if yours does too.

                          I am getting another set of strings for a younger relative, only the smaller gauge set. Same Brand. Smaller strings to hurt smaller hands less.
