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

String Gauges: 10-14-18-32-44-56

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, these guitar strings are 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 guitar strings that will withstand his ridiculously 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."

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

    Comments about DR Strings Alexi Laiho Signature Guitar Strings - Medium Heavy:

    I'd say the past year or so, I've really been obsessing over strings and finding out what strings brands and gauges i like. I was an Ernie Ball guy for the longest time. this past year i primarily used d'addario while also trying dunlop, but then i tried these strings. I play in drop c and these strings are hands down the best strings for that tuning. Alexi knew what he was doing when he made this set. if youre primaly a rythym player, dont let the thinner top strings fool you. they can handle hard picking and full chords. the only problem i have is this price. Im about to switch to the Jeff Healy set which is the exact same gauge. but if i had more money i would definitley buy these more often.

    These Strings. . .

    By Chris Blades

    from New York, New York

    Comments about DR Strings Alexi Laiho Signature Guitar Strings - Medium Heavy:

    I'd like to preface my review by saying that guitar strings typically last a lot longer under my hands than most heavy riffers. First, because my hands do not sweat much when I play. Also because I am not hard on my strings. Any decent set of strings can last me up to five or six months with daily play. So, with that in mind, I guess you could say that I am somewhat biased. . .

    In any case, these strings kick butt. I've had them on one of my Les Pauls for the better part of six months, and they still feel and sound great! I've always preferred the feel and tone of thicker strings, and to be honest, a .10 for a high E is kind of small for me. I usually use .12s. I play in standard tuning, too. So I love that tension. And even though it's smaller than what I'm used to, it fights back. In a good way. They're not hard to bend in standard. These strings scream! I kind of lied when I said I wasn't hard on the strings because I do bend the heck out of them, and the darn things do NOT go out of tune.

    DR rocks. Getchoo some.

    Best Strings Ever!!!

    By Paww Pawww

    from Belleview, Florida

    Comments about DR Strings Alexi Laiho Signature Guitar Strings - Medium Heavy:

    I used to use Ernie Ball Hybrids all the time, and I thought that nothing would ever beat them. Well, I picked up a set of these bad boys cause Alexi Laiho is a freaking god. Let me tell you, these strings blow every single set of strings I have used out of the water. They sound amazing in Drop C. (Which is what they are made for) You will not be disappointed. Make sure to follow the instructions inside the string box. It's really helpful!
