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!

The best set I have ever used!

By Matt Kniser-MJTmb

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

After eight years of playing electric guitar and trying different strings I settled on D'Addarios. They last longer than any other string I have tried. In tone, playability and in tuning stability. Usually other packs would die on me in about a month. D'Addarios last for five months plus and the tone and the brightness is still there. They are amazing. I own a Gibson SG Special Faded and I decided to upgrade to 11's so I could get a really solid feel, bigger tone and so I could really rock. I also like to drop tune on occasion. I am really glad I went to 11's. They really make my SG sing. They are the most musical strings I have ever used. I play lead guitar at church and EXL115's provide me the flexibility to go from screaming leads, to suttle single note melodies with my delay pedal. They really bring out the best of my guitar. Allowing my guitar to play at it's full potential. They have really enhanced the lows and they have a smooth treble that is warm so it is not too overbearing. They really offer the perfect balance of tone and feel. I will never go back to another string. I love them.

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

D'Addario Strings are "the" choice of many musicians & they are a solid guitar string without a doubt.
These are good strings that produce the rich tones I need from my Gibson & G&L Legacy Guitars.
I live at the Jersey Shore which plays havoc on any guitar string when I do outdoor gigs... they stand up through the sweat & salt air.
I change strings before every gig I do which is 4 to 5 nights a week in the summer months because no guitar string can have a long life span here (NOT EVEN THE COATED).

Great set of strings!

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

I like the heavier gauge strings. 11 gauge set is about is high as I can go and still play in standard tuning. Like it says on the package, I play blues, jazz, and rock. I was using a set with 0.48 for the low E but I find that the 0.49 with the D'Addario exl 115 set gives me a little extra punch and clarity on the low end. D'Addario's sound great and seem to last longer.

EXL 115 Nickel Blues/Jazz Strings
Recycled packaging, Amazing quality product, Very reasonably priced, and if you use the excess string cut from your G string to stick into the drummers throne, it's been tested, and GUARANTEED it will stick him to the bone when he sits on it. What more could you ever want from your guitar strings I ask you?
EXL 115 Blues/Jazz strings are a perfect set of strings with environmentally friendly packaging is a huge plus in my book. Flashy packaging means nothing to me, but showing a moral resposibility to the environment does.
Throughout my 17+ years of playing on stage every single weekend 3-4 nights a week, I can count on one hand the faulty strings I've recieved from this company.
You get all the bang for your buck. Tone, and durability well above the other comparable brands.

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

        After over 40 years of playing I have not found guitar strings that are better and more economical than just "plain old" D'Addario strings. I use them on both acoustic and electric instruments. Paying high prices for strings just doesn't make sense to me. Strings don't make one a better player, and almost all of the "hype" about better sound, better value, etc. is just "hype" as far as I'm concerned! When these are on sale, you just can't lose - period.
