    better than expected

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix NIC11 Nickel Wound Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

    bought a big pack o' picks and strings to try out a few new brands a few months ago, out of the new electric strings this is the clear winner so far. For reference I usually like D'Addario XL's because they're super-bright, thick and zingy; these EH strings were almost as bright, just a little more vintage-sounding. Balanced sound that held up well over several weeks, it was almost 2 months until they really started sounding "dead" enough to change again. I'll continue to buy D'Addario's until I find something that's really "better", but these are almost as good -

    NIC11

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix NIC11 Nickel Wound Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

    These seem like pretty good strings. I'm new to the whole "guitar playing thing", so I'm not the best judge, but they certainly sound better than the factory strings from my Squier Stat.
    One of the strings broke while I was restringing the guitar. Probably my fault, but I thought I should put that in here.

    Electroharmonix is Decent enough

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix NIC11 Nickel Wound Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

    These strings are, as advertised, seemingly lighter and faster with a smooth touch. They sound really good with a clean or slightly distorted channel. Nice and soft. But it is really difficult to get a good screaming high note above the 12th frets that doesnt seem faded or choked out. Perhaps its just my Guitar (Modified Washburn X -Series w Gibson Explorer HH pickups), they might make a better fit on a single-coil Strat and some Jazz pickin'. Great for the price, just not what I was looking for.

    Best Strings Period

    By Musicman626

    from Lafayette, La.

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix NIC11 Nickel Wound Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

    I have used just about every brand of string ever made over the last 45 years of playing. These are the best I have ever heard - they beat Ernie Ball's reinforced 11-48's by a mile. They are smooth and are easy on your fingers. just pure balanced sound with a great tone blend. Get some !

    A Real Keeper!

    By Jarred T. Rutherford

    from Appalachia, VA

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix NIC11 Nickel Wound Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

    At first I was Quite sketchy because EHX is known for their Tubes and Effects, not strings, but after popping these babies on my Tele I was simply AMAZED at the wonderful 60's esque tone and clarity. These strings, on a clean channel give a wonderful and and heavenly tone remenescent of the bands that paved the way for modern rock. I didn't give the features a five because they don't make toast, but I HIGHLY reccomend these over most other brands

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix NIC11 Nickel Wound Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

    I've tried out all the Gibson strings, all the Ernie Ball Slinkys, and all of the GHS Boomers, but each time, I keep comming back to the EH strings. They've got that nice tone, and silky feel. 10 out of 10, hands down.

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix NIC11 Nickel Wound Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

    these strings are the only ones I'll use on my lespaul or sg, they have a really bright sound and good clear, well balanced tone and volume between all the strings. I have yet to find anything even close for the price. its good stuff.

    I give nothing a 10 except...

    By Dave Owens-zzdIE

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix NIC11 Nickel Wound Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

    These strings are incredible. I use them on my Les Paul Custom and have used them on SGs, hollow bodies, strats...you name it. They are consistent in tone and have never let me down!You can only determine what you like by how they sound but these strings do it for me. I bought about 10 different sets a few years ago to FINALLY figure out which were the best match for me and these truly shined through. ~Dave Owenswww.myspace.com/daveowens

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix NIC11 Nickel Wound Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

    These strings last a long time and they don't lose their tone. They made my Tele sound excellent when I put them on.
