    Great Strings

    By Schecter4Life-Wlcm9

    from CT

    Comments about D'Addario EXL150 Nickel XL 12-String Electric Guitar Strings:

    I purchased these strings for my Schecter CSH12 and they are great strings. They have been on for a few months now, and only have to tune them once a week. The only complaint I have is the high G string. While tuning, the string broke right at the ball. I found this annoying, but I also just don't like the sound of the high G. It stands out too much, and I have since replaced it with a regular G. The price annoying, but very reasonable considering it's 12 strings, not the usual 6. Good gauges, and great tone.

    Never have I seen D'Addario strings at this price. The strings are the same no matter where you buy them, but the price is what got me to buy multiple sets.

      Outstanding sound and though I have not been using them a long time they seem to have good string life.
      I put these on a Danelectro 12 string I recently purchased and they enhance that jangly folk/rock sound of the 60's.

      I bought this set of strings to try on an Epiphone G 1275 on the 12 string neck. They sound good and the gauge makes them very playable. The price rounds this set of strings out to be a great deal.

      Comments about D'Addario EXL150 Nickel XL 12-String Electric Guitar Strings:

      Excellent value
      Recently bought this set for my Rickenbacker 620/12. Excellent bright strings that after that initial strech period hold their tune and sound great. The price is what attracted me.Excellent bang for the buck.
      D'Addario strings have always been good.
      Half the price of other 12 string sets.

      Sound is pretty good. Good jangle in high frequencies.
      Be careful while tuning the upper octave G-string. VERY thin.

          I'm not fond of any string until they are stretched/broken in(too bright), D'Addario strings retain a warm consistent tone and last a long time once broken in so long as you keep them clean more so than any other string I've tried.

            Comments about D'Addario EXL150 Nickel XL 12-String Electric Guitar Strings:

            These came with my new Schecter Stargazer 12-string. On the first night, while tuning, the high G string broke. I've played guitar for decades, and am very familiar with tuning a guitar, so I know I wasn't doing anything wrong. It turns out that this is the smallest guage of the entire set, so the most likely to break. It was a bit of a disappointment, happening so quick, right out of the "shute".I'm okay with this since - in all fairness - the were probably put on the guitar awhile back, and accompanied that guitar as it travelled from the other side of the world (manufacturing point), to the US, then within the US. I plan to replace the individual string with a higher guage, and try this brand some more.
