True string performance endorsed by one of the fastest guitarists in the world.

String Gauges: 11-14-18-28-38-50

Alexi Laiho Electric Guitar Strings have an ultra-thin coating with similar characteristics to Dr. Strings' Dimebag Darrell High Voltage construction, nickel-plated, steel wound strings. They feature round core construction for increased sustain, more bottom, and easier bending. Also, they're treated with a non-toxic, corrosion-resistant Long-Life treatment exclusive to Dr. Strings.

Alexi Laiho is a Finnish guitarist known for being one of the fastest guitarists in the world. If you've ever seen him solo, you understand why such an icon needs strings that will withstand his ridiculously fast and hard shredding style. Alexi endorses his signature strings because "They sound big and fat and bend like no other. It's an awesome feeling when you know you can really bang the crap out of your guitar without having to worry about snapping a string no matter how crazy you are slammin' it, testing the limits with a whammy bar or gnarly bends."

Features

If you want to make sure your replacement strings can bend and bow to your command like Alexi Laiho's do so don't pass up the chance to mount these resilient strings on your electric guitar. Grab a bunch and save!

They're okay.

Comments about DR Strings Alexi Laiho Guitar Strings Extra Heavy:

I went through some extensive string testing in the past few months, and I tested numerous brands of .11-48 or .11-50 guage strings.These strings are bright sounding and they feel great, but they lose their tone quickly compared to my new main choice(Dunlop Medium Heavy 11-50) and I had the Highest 2 strings snap on me on my main guitar while tuning my guitar prior to a gig, and I had only had the strings on there for 3 days.If the strings lasted longer, they would give the dunlop's a run for their money.

Clear strings.

Comments about DR Strings Alexi Laiho Guitar Strings Extra Heavy:

These strings are great for any playing, clean or distorted. I put these in E/drop-D, and they are tight and clear. The lower strings are great for chords, and the higher strings are perfect for how i play. A little tough for bending at first, as expected with this guage, but after a couple of days you get used to it. These are great, but if its an issue, and you need lighter top strings, get the 10-56 guage because these are great!
