These strings are the new standard. With 11s, you get a great blend of playability, durability, and a tone that is warm and bright.

When I was a beginner, I played 9s, then I moved up to 10s for a few years, and now, after about six months on 11s, I will never go back. The lighter gauges made my instruments seem like weaker, quieter, less soulful versions of themselves. By switching to 11s, the guitars' personalities have been revealed; they talk to me now. Even my Stratocaster has them, and the tuning stability with the two-point tremolo is fine.

Save some money by getting a ten pack, and keep practicing!

    Comments about D'Addario EXL115 Nickel Blues/Jazz Electric Guitar Strings 10-Pack:

    The D'Addario XL guitar strings are an excellent medium gauge string (I don't much care for light gauge strings.....to me, they are too twangy). I change guitar strings frequently to maintain the quality of tone, my audience and I expect to hear. The 10 set pack meets my needs and is economical.....I buy all my guitar strings from Musicians Friend.

    I'm a first time user for D'Addario EXL115. Bought these for my new Gretsch (11's are stock when you buy a Gretsch hollow body electric). They sound great ! So far, so good.

      I've used several brand of guitar strings over the years. Once I found D'Addarios I never bought another brand. I even started buying them for my acoustic guitars.

        First time i have used 11s, put them on my new jaguarillo. They have a nice warmth to them, and I like the extra sustain. Have had them on about three weeks, and they stay in tune pretty good, too.

            Some of the best, most comfortable strings on the market. If you play blues or rock, here is your string. For the price nothing compares. These strings last the longest and have the best tone for the gauge that I use. Go out and try a few diff gauges you will find that you will love the consistent quality and sound that this brand brings to the table time and time again. Its the players choice!

              Comments about D'Addario EXL115 Nickel Blues/Jazz Electric Guitar Strings 10-Pack:

              I'm not a pro as I don't get paid, but I gig with frinds bands at least 4 nights a week, and when not doing that, play at least 2 hours a day at home. I've been playing for 46 years and have tried almost every string brand and these strings stand up to this heavy use. They are the go to strings for my Gibson ES-335, and Ibanez AS-73 and AG-75, but I also use them on my Strats and Teles. These strings have such a clean bright sound, resist corrosion and fit my string bender style so well that I buy them in 10 packs. These are the best strings I have found for my needs.

                  Oh yeah!!! These are the nicest strings I've used in a long time. They're strong and they hold their brilliance and do not lose their tuning with bending or capos. I like the thicker diameters.
