I bought these strings a couple of weeks ago and absolutely love them. I have tried pretty much all brands of strings out there, and until just recently used Dean Markley strings exclusively. I figured I would give these a try. I have always had trouble with my guitar strings getting a sticky feel to them after a few days of use. These strings have remained with a nice slick feel since putting them on a Les Paul and a Fender Stratocaster. They have a great sound that is not too bright. They sound super on bridge position with distortion, and neck position for smooth solo playing. I will continue to buy these for my four guitars along with the Dean Markleys. Give them a try if you are considering a different guitar string brand.

I have been having problems with the EXL 120s lately, especially on my Les Paul and '61 reissue LP SG. Those two instruments have been rock solid in tunign for years. Both have TonePros System 2 TOM and aluminum stop bar. Could not maintain tuning in either instrument, especially low E, D, and G strings. Tuning machines are Grover Klusons 18:1 too. I have a rack test instrument with no pups to see if I was doing something wrong, but found by slightly overwinding that they come apart at the ball end, and pretty easily too. Went to Ernie Ball Stainless,and problem is solved. Don't see how D'addario can claim "consistent quality and intonation" when they won't stay in tune in the first place. Cheap strings=headaches. Don't buy them.

        Comments about D'Addario EXL120 Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings (3-Pack):

        I was able to buy 3 sets of these XL's for less than the price of one pack of Elixir Nanos. I've found them to be every bit as good as the Elixirs, which I have always thought were the best strings I ever played. I won't say these are better, but the price was very inviting and I'm not disappointed.

              I see they now have a deal for like 389 a pack containing a free high E string, it would be great to have a 3 pack like this containing an extra E,B,G string with the same deal at 999.

                buy far the best way to buy, you would think larger quanitys, would cost less.

                So yes the 10 pack of the same strings cost more.

                I like that there is only one sealed bag allso, saves clean up and garbage.
