OVERVIEW

Re-engineered to be stronger for enhanced output.

The NYXL Nickel Wound Medium guitar strings come in gauges 11-49.

D’Addario NYXL guitar strings will bend farther, sing louder, and stay in tune better than other strings. Envisioned, perfected, and manufactured by D’Addario in New York, this newly engineered, break-resistant high-carbon steel core and plain steel alloy delivers a whole new level of freedom, confidence, and power.

NYXL’s provide more strength and 131% more tuning stability by utilizing a completely reinvented wire drawing process and revolutionary corrosion-resistant tin coating application. The reformulated nickel-plated string windings have greater magnetic properties resulting in higher output and enhanced mid-range frequency response for more presence and crunch.

The NYXL0942 set is designed for maximum flexibility.

FEATURES
  • Features D’Addario’s exclusive revolutionary high carbon steel alloy
  • Offers more strength, break-resistance, and improved tuning stability
  • Wound strings contain enhanced mid-range frequency response in the 1–3.5kHz range – boosting presence and crunch

      Comments about D'Addario NYXL Nickel Wound Medium Electric Guitar Strings (11-49):

      When I picked these up at a local shop, the guy told me they are the same tone as the regular XL's just stronger. I think not, I think they had a brighter tone to them (which I love on my Jag). They did have a different feel to them as well, a good one. They felt stronger, but weren't too stiff. Get them, try them, love them.

          These strings are dead within 2 days of me playing. Basically by the time they are finally stretched into tune they feel corroded. The "crunch" they talk about just means the tone on any clean setting is disgustingly muddy. I'm going home to put back on my elixirs. They're worth the extra any day. They last literally 5 times longer and sound beautifully clear.

              If these are any different from standard strings, the difference is small. I didn't notice any increased volume or tuning stability when compared to standard strings and they're more than double the cost of most regular nickelwound sets. In addition to this, they also rust more quickly than nickelwound strings. I put these on my guitar about 2 weeks ago and already the treble strings are starting to rust. I'll be excited when I have standard strings back on my guitar again.

              Very Good Strings

                    Been using these strings for a few weeks now and find them to perform well and they sound equally as good as EB RPS11's. I don't see or feel any difference between the two as I've switched from RPS11's to these for a trial. If the price was the same I might switch but with no difference between them, I'll choose 2 packs of RPS11's for the price of 1 NYXL and still have a buck left over. I saw the string bending demo from NYXL and was impressed. That is an extreme test. However, I've never broken RPS11's from string bending and never had to retune them after bending either. I just don't see any reason to pay the extra price. The softness or ability to bend either of these types of strings also seems the same to me. 11-48(or 49) is a thick set of strings and as thick a string as I will ever use.

                      Decided to give these a try even though I had a bad experience with Ernie Ball Cobalts (they turned to straight up rust after one gig). As advertised, they did do a better job of staying in tune from the get go, although I did still have to adjust tuning throughout the show. Used an 11-49 set on my Epiphone Dot, and they didn't feel 'heavier' than a regular set of the same gauge as other users have reported. Had a brighter tone than other strings I normally use (Ernie Ball Slinkys, GHS Boomers, etc.). The real test will come when I play the guitar again after a beer and sweat-soaked weekend of gigs...lol
