I use D'Addario strings for my basses and electric guitars. This 12 string set is fantastic for the price and help bring my Ric 360/ 12 alive! Highly recommended.

    I've met some of the D'Addario family at NAMM shows and they are lovely,lovely people.
    I use these on my Danelectro 12 string. Best tone for the buck for an electric 12 string.

        If you got a Gretsch or a weird 12 string import these are great Strings. Been playing 35 + years. For some reason these strings are exceptional on Gretsch's. They add a unique voice that complements the overall sound of the Instrument. Same with 12 String Electric Guitars. I have a weird " Ric " kinda 12 String Electric and I have found D' Strings the most expressive......responsive and nice sounding of the various Strings I have tried. .......prefer GHS on Strats.....just saying...

          Comments about D'Addario EXL150 Nickel XL 12-String Electric Guitar Strings:

          A lot of my guitars came with D'Addario strings. I like them because they tune quite fast, they are very smooth to the touch, and they seem to stand a some spirited sessions (some other stings brands stretch inconsistently, get out of tune, rust and lose their tone fairly quickly). I purchased this set for my double neck guitar 12 String portion... one string popped (the 8ve "G" -- which is by the way the thinnest of them all). Just be gentle with that one because it could pop easier than any other string in the set. But once changed, it tuned really fast and haven't had any trouble since. I am holding up the rest of the packet for whenever I need to change the others. I've been using them quite a bit and they are still holding strong, even after some crazy bending, which I didn't think I could achieve with a 12 string... not as nearly as much as a 6 string, of course -- but I was actually impressed. I like the fact that they come already bundled in pairs (color coded) so you don't have to guess or go crazy matching the right sets to the instrument. Just as any person who loves their guitars will tell you -- make sure you do basic cleaning of the instrument after each use -- for one I don't let ANYBODY touch my strings (or any of my guitars for that matter) until they wash their hands and thoroughly dry them. Simple trick can take make your strings keep their bright sounding tone and feel clean for a long long time. Oh, yeah... get them (these strings), they are great for instruments with long scale!

              I'm not fond of any string until they are stretched/broken in(too bright), D'Addario strings retain a warm consistent tone and last a long time once broken in so long as you keep them clean more so than any other string I've tried.
