I have been using this set for some time now and I absolutely 'Love Them '(wont use anything else)Tip:Right before tuning at instaling;Stretch each string from high to low w/ left hand pressing down and pull at bridge snugly w/ right hand till done (3-in-in one oil applied 1st w/tissue)They stay in great tune (I use a Floyd Tremelo and the intonation stays perfect every time).Enjoy them! 'Awesome Set!'Davevonz

I bought these strings as an alternate to my go-to Ernie Ball Regular Slinky sets. I was hoping to experience that "round, bright" tone many D'Addario XL users tell me about. Unfortunately, I did not experience it.My guitar has lost all its detail: it sounds flat, dull, and unappealing. If anything, it lost its natural bright tone.I do appreciate its quality, which is better than my normal Slinky set, and its ease in use (it feels better).I guess I'll stick to my Slinkys until I find the need to try another brand.

      Comments about D'Addario EXL110+ XL 010 Electric Guitar Strings:

      I have a couple of guitars where I find even .010 gauge strings to be too light and .011 gauge strings to be too heavy. These D'Addario .0105 gauge strings are just perfect! It's amazing how much of a difference .0005 can make, but it does. These are impossible to find at most music stores and sites, so having them available at MF is great for me. The pricing is excellent also especially when you factor in free shipping.

            Half Step Down Tuning

            Comments about D'Addario EXL110+ XL 010 Electric Guitar Strings:

            if you are used to using 10's in standard tuning and need to tune down a half step on a short scale guitar like a les paul I found these to be the perfect solution to get the same tension back so strings do not feel floppy and the .0105's don't feel like tree trunks like they do on standard 11 gauge sets on the E and B strings.

            When 10 is not enough and 11 is too much.

            Comments about D'Addario EXL110+ XL 010 Electric Guitar Strings:

            Once again, I only buy D'Adarrio.
            Love these strings on my Strat. They sound a little richer than 10's, but are easier on your fingers than 11's. I am mostly a hard rock and blues player, so of course I bend strings alot. The 10+ gives me the extra resistence I prefer over 10's but yet I can bend a whole step without feeling like I am fighting my guitar.
            I practice a lot and mostly with the strat. They seem to last about 40 hours before they start to sound dull. Not bad considering how much string bending I do.
            I only buy D'Adarrio for my 2 electrics and 2 acoustics.

            10.5

            Comments about D'Addario EXL110+ XL 010 Electric Guitar Strings:

            These are good strings, I've played D' Addario for a long time now, long life, good tone tone, the works. I like this half gauge set for my les paul. I usually play 10's on a strat, or tremelo guitar. With the shorter scale of Les Pauls, or any Gibson type guitar the tension is less than Fenders, or guitars like that. 11's are ok, but can get a little heavy, and the 10.5 gauge is just right.

            Perfect compromise

            Comments about D'Addario EXL110+ XL 010 Electric Guitar Strings:

            I bought a used Les Paul that came with 11s which opened my eyes to the advantages of heavier srings. The 11s were a bit rough for me, but 10.5s supply the girth and punch of 11s with the easier playability of 10s. I find they last a bit longer than 10s, and tend to stay in tune a bit better. This is now my go-to gauge for Les Pauls.

            awesome strings!

            Comments about D'Addario EXL110+ XL 010 Electric Guitar Strings:

            i just picked up a few sets of these the other day and i must say that i did enjoy them. though small, the difference in the string thickness make the strings handle my drop tuning (drop c#) much better and they go out of tune way less often. after trying them out on my main guitar, i put them on my 3 other guitars without hesitation. the sound is a bit darker than i expected (most noticeable when played with an unplugged electric) but they are just as clear and crisp as any other d'addario strings. buy em today!
