Never have I seen D'Addario strings at this price. The strings are the same no matter where you buy them, but the price is what got me to buy multiple sets.

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

I bought this set of strings to try on an Epiphone G 1275 on the 12 string neck. They sound good and the gauge makes them very playable. The price rounds this set of strings out to be a great deal.

      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.

          Outstanding sound and though I have not been using them a long time they seem to have good string life.
          I put these on a Danelectro 12 string I recently purchased and they enhance that jangly folk/rock sound of the 60's.

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

          These came with my new Schecter Stargazer 12-string. On the first night, while tuning, the high G string broke. I've played guitar for decades, and am very familiar with tuning a guitar, so I know I wasn't doing anything wrong. It turns out that this is the smallest guage of the entire set, so the most likely to break. It was a bit of a disappointment, happening so quick, right out of the "shute".I'm okay with this since - in all fairness - the were probably put on the guitar awhile back, and accompanied that guitar as it travelled from the other side of the world (manufacturing point), to the US, then within the US. I plan to replace the individual string with a higher guage, and try this brand some more.

          Excellent value
          Recently bought this set for my Rickenbacker 620/12. Excellent bright strings that after that initial strech period hold their tune and sound great. The price is what attracted me.Excellent bang for the buck.
          D'Addario strings have always been good.
          Half the price of other 12 string sets.

          Great Strings

          By Schecter4Life-Wlcm9

          from CT

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

          I purchased these strings for my Schecter CSH12 and they are great strings. They have been on for a few months now, and only have to tune them once a week. The only complaint I have is the high G string. While tuning, the string broke right at the ball. I found this annoying, but I also just don't like the sound of the high G. It stands out too much, and I have since replaced it with a regular G. The price annoying, but very reasonable considering it's 12 strings, not the usual 6. Good gauges, and great tone.

                      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...

                        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!
