D'Addario strings have been my #1 choice since I bought my first guitar in 1963 (acoustic back then). I've used other brands when my size wasn't available, and though there was nothing wrong with them I prefer EXL-110 over anything else.
I'm retired, and I buy, fix, and sell guitars as a hobby. I only work on electrics, and prefer Strats and Telecasters. Every one that I sell goes out the door with D'Addario strings.

Have used these on Fender Stratocasters, Gibson Les Pauls (both HBs and P90s), Jackson (Scot Ian), and Parker Fly and Nitefly. I like the tonal expression of these strings through single-coil PUPs, less so with HBs. These strings express a crisp, bright, warm sound and ringing timbre. I see the principal contraindication of these strings is the extraordinary finger noise generated when playing lead aggressively. This phenomenon is generally true of round wound strings but this model takes it to a new level.

Comments about D'Addario EXL110 Nickel Light Electric Guitar Strings 3-Pack:

I put these on my guitar and now I am able to product musical notes by striking them. Before, my guitar went "plink, plink, plink". Now it goes "bow chicka wow wow"! 10/10 would recommend.

      I've used these strings for years,simply because they have good tone, don't break and they are inexpensive. I've tried other brands and keep coming back to these. They are consistent, and do the job very well.

          Comments about D'Addario EXL110 Nickel Light Electric Guitar Strings 3-Pack:

          I love these strings. I've used these most of the time that I've played guitar. Every so often, I try something new just to be sure, but I always come back to D'Addario.
          Your basic 10-46 string set.
          These strings keep their tone longer and last longer than any others I've tried.
          Great value for the money. Long lasting.

              Comments about D'Addario EXL110 Nickel Light Electric Guitar Strings 3-Pack:

              Using these strings for 20 - 30 years, not sure, time flies. Reliable - I only change strings sometimes because I just feel bad that I haven't or I'm going into the studio. They stay in tune and last many many gigs. Quality - I have never broken one of these. And I can be pretty demanding. I don't do whammy bar dive bombs anymore, but back in the day I never had a problem. I never understood how you break a string while playing, I figured it had to be the players instrument, but don't know, I just know that I've never had the problem.

              My experience is only with and old Fender Strat and a decent Tele knock-off. I started using these strings years ago because I read that Pete Anderson used them. Would love to write a review about how they are on a Gibson if anyone wants to send me a Les Paul?!?!

                Ive been using the DAddario EXL110s (10-46) strings for some 25 years now. They are some of the best strings out there, especially for the price. I like bending strings, sometimes to the extreme. Yet I cant remember the last time one broke. And they last a long time too! I use them on all my guitars.

                        I tried these( D'Addario) simultaneously with the equivalent Ernie Ball that had just about every famous guitar player's endorsement on the package and for me I have to give these the edge. These strings feel more "homey" to me for lack of a better adjective. The equivalent Ernie Ball is very nice but seems to me to have a more bright sound where the D ' Addario seem to be more of a warm sound. It's a personal preference. If you ever watch any videos of Eddie Van Halen messing around at home, you will see packages of D'Addrio strings hanging around. I actually bought these because of the price originally though.

                              I first use these on a Frakencaster I built. I liked the tone very much, so I put them on a Strat and they sounded even better. I try to keep a few extra for spares. They are affordable, plus fantastic sound. I just bought but have not used the extra lite DeAddario. I bet they will sound good too.

                                    I have been switching back and forth between these and Ernie Balls. Ernie Ball's are fresh out of the pack but loosen up and loose tone quickly. I have gone back to these because they stay nice and tight and have consistent bright tone. I play mostly blues and classic rock and have never broken a string with these. I have played 9s but are a little to light for me. If you want strings that will last a long time and deliver a bright and snappy tone get these!

                                          D'Addario's are the most consistent best sounding strings out there. This particular set is great for rhythm playing or blues bending. Nice and balanced with just enough bite.
