      Comments about D'Addario XL157 XL Nickel Medium Electric Baritone Guitar Strings:

      When I ordered these strings, I was expecting super tight, mediocre strings.
      When these bad boys came in, I put them on and they just 'felt' perfect. Playing them, bending them, etc.
      I got them put on the day my band started recording guitars. After a couple of riffs, we'd check up on the tuning. Didn't need to be tuned again, it was amazing!

        Comments about D'Addario XL157 XL Nickel Medium Electric Baritone Guitar Strings:

        These are my favorite strings by far. I have them on my MH-1000 in Drop Bb and it sounds beast. I also have them on my Speedster on Drop C for a challenging practice. It is meant for baritone guitars but they work for my standard scale guitars. Feels great, sounds great. Would recommend to any detuner.

        Comments about D'Addario XL157 XL Nickel Medium Electric Baritone Guitar Strings:

        I've been looking for a good set of Baritone strings to compliment the PRS that I have. I picked up a pair of these recently and strung up my guitar. I have to say that strings really impressed me. They didn't feel too loose like you would get out other strings designed for low tuning. It had great tension that allowed for the tone quality to shine through. Really good lows, and also great highs. Really well balanced tone delivery. I didn't ever feel like that strings were in a power struggle for clarity. Recommended for all low tuning guitar players.

        Great strings for baritone

        By Grinder RW

        from Detroit, MI

        Comments about D'Addario XL157 XL Nickel Medium Electric Baritone Guitar Strings:

        I use these strings with a PRS Baritone, 27.7 inch scale, and the sound great. Don't worry about the packaging, some of it says it's for use with a Danelectro baritone with an even longer scale, but these are the same ones PRS uses from the factory I believe, and they sound and feel great on mine. I am used to using coated strings, so these feel really rough to me, but at this large of gauge I imagine that's inevitable.

        I tend to have pretty sweaty fingers when I play, and these seem to be holding up really well for non-coated strings.

        Great sound, which is awesome, because baritone strings are becoming really hard to find. Thank you D'Addario!

        Great Djent Tone!

        By Jared Beck

        Comments about D'Addario XL157 XL Nickel Medium Electric Baritone Guitar Strings:

        If you are someone who tunes their guitar very low (like A G or F). These strings are a must have.
        I have been experimenting with different strings for my Ibanez that i tune down to G# for some time now, and i stumbled upon these. For the low end they are great! but for a standard scale guitar the top end could be a little tighter. They stay in tune and last quite a while.

        Suits my needs!

        Comments about D'Addario XL157 XL Nickel Medium Electric Baritone Guitar Strings:

        I purchsaed these strings for my Prs baritone that I tune A to A and sometimes drop the top string to G. I believe Prs actually uses these exact strings on the baritone from the factory. They are perfect and have the same tension and feel as a regular 6 string in standard tuning. I wont use anything else on my baritone besides these and they are well priced.
