Both D'Addario and Ernie Ball make fine strings, I like them both but prefer D'Addario for my Les Pauls. Some folks think 9s are too light for Gibsons but I like 'em just fine. Try different strings, find out what YOU like..

Love D'addario strings, but MF strings are NOT "fresh", they have been going dead after 2 gigs, & some even dead right out of package?! Complained to D'addario, they sent me a freshly made set of strings, BIG difference!!! Although a good price, don't know if I will buy these from MF anymore???

        These strings always play in tune and intonation is always accurate no matter how long the strings are on the guitar.

                  I've used Xl-120 , .009 gauge for the better part of 30 years. I 've may broken
                  3 strings during a performances in all the years I've used them. They have tone that is balanced and warm. Ive tried coated. But always go back to the original. I recommend highly!

                      I've used D'Addario's for over forty years and have never had a problem. Great right out of the box and on the guitar. One less thing to worry about while performing. Definitely the best string on the market.

                        These strings are smooth to the touch and the guages/string positions 1-6, are easily identifiable by the color of the ball ends. They have an excellent timbre and stay pretty clean, even after lengthy playing sessions. And, the price, is the biggest bang for the buck I've seen anywhere, so far!

                        Play everyday as a professional guitarist. I have always used D'Addario's on the Les Pauls, but now Im putting them on the Tele's instead of Ernie Ball's. My hands like them better, I can't explain it, they just work for me.
