OVERVIEW

Gauges 9-11-16-24-32-42

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.

Re-engineered to be stronger for enhanced output.

FEATURES
  • Features D'Addario's exclusive revolutionary high carbon steel alloy
  • Offers more strength, break-resistance, and improved tuning stability compared to traditional nickel wound strings
  • Wound strings contain enhanced mid-range frequency response in the 1-3.5kHz range - boosting presence and crunch
  • Environmentally friendly, corrosion-resistant packaging for strings that are always fresh

D-Addario has taken a leap forward with the introduction of its NYXL strings. I use the Super Lights and could not be more impressed with their strength and ability to bend while staying in tune. It's also a string with the ability to sound delicate, but by no means is it a delicate string. Bravo, D-Addario!

I bought three set of these strings to try out. So far I have only tried them on one guitar that has a floyd rose bridge. I had previously been using the standard EXL120s for many years. It was very difficult getting the high e and b string to stay in the floyd bridge without slipping out. Eventually I ended up having to use sandpaper to rough up the tip of the string. Then, when stretching the strings, the high e string broke around the 3rd fret of the guitar. Note this was not at the bridge or the nut. So, I had to open a second set and use it's high e string, which also slipped out of the floyd without using sandpaper on the end. They now have about 5 hours of playing time on them and the new e string hasn't broken yet. The sound is good, but doesn't seem radically better than the EXL120s I had been using. I would recommend sticking to the EXL120 if that's what you've been using before these came out.

          These just had a tone I didn't like. Some may like it, but I prefer the traditional tone I am used to. They have a mid range punch that you have to like. I didn't. Plain old EXL120's just sound right to me. That being said, there was nothing wrong with the quality of the strings. They also felt like they had more tension than the EXL120's even though they spec out at the same string tension. So being old school, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. There's a reason the EXL120's sound good.

            Comments about D'Addario NYXL0942 Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

            I am admittedly a heavy-handed country player. I had heard that these strings were excellent for benders like myself, and I was looking to try some different strings. I was sorely disappointed from the minute I put them on. I couldn't get them into tune initially, and they felt super flimsy. I was afraid to strum as hard as I usually do, so I played differently and didn't really enjoy the gig. I think these might be better for Gibson or PRS players; a Fender (Strat & Tele) just doesn't seem like a good fit. Never again.

              I like these strings, I haven't had any breakage, and they seem to last much longer from a tonal standpoint than other strings. The only downside is that they're expensive.

                  These strings are so good I just had to help promote them to others so they will remain in production and continue to be available. They are clearer, seem to hold intonation better, and are more elastic than standard D'Adarrio strings, yet they have no less warmth, or fatness, of tone. More costly for now, but I won't go back to EXL110s, even though I have almost twenty sets of them I thought I would be using. They are great strings, too, but these are obviously better to me.

                    I received a set from D'Addario as a test, I put them on my 2010 Firebird V, i'm hooked, i've been using GHS super lights for 40+ years,

                    I'm now ordering these NYXL's by the 10 pack.
                    Awesome stings, wish they were around years ago.

                    Try them and see for yourself.
