OVERVIEW

Extreme flexibility.

NYXL0980 is designed for 8-string players who want super light gauges for maximum flexibility. This set is balanced for longer scale length instruments. DAddario NYXL guitar strings will bend farther, sing louder, and stay in tune better than any string you've played before.

Envisioned, perfected, and manufactured by DAddario in New York, this newly engineered, break-resistant, high-carbon steel core and plain steel alloy delivers a whole new level of freedom, confidence, and power. NYXLs provide more strength and up to 131% greater tuning stability by utilizing a completely reinvented wire drawing process coupled with a revolutionary fusion twist process for the plain steels.

The reformulated nickel-plated string windings have greater magnetic properties resulting in higher output and enhanced mid-range frequency response for more presence and crunch.

FEATURES
High carbon steel alloy for unprecedented strength
Improved tuning stability compared to traditional nickel wound strings
Wound strings with enhanced mid-range frequency response in the 1 - 3.5 kHz range

      Comments about D'Addario NYXL0980 8-String Super Light Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings (09-80):

      Wasn't super impressed with these strings. I expected more tension and stability on a 28" scale guitar.

      The low B had so much variance in it, that even after a good stretch, it would still go extremely sharp with even the lightest pick attack. And wouldn't intonate in relation to the low E no matter how much I adjusted it.

      The low F# was also wildly unstable. I would not expect this from a .080 on a 28" scale.

      I swapped them for some EB strings and they are wayyyy more stable, even before I got them stretched well. And I'm talking about the basic EB slinkies, not even the cobalts are paradigms.

      I just can't recommend these strings to anyone. At this price I expected a lot more.

      Some people thought maybe I got a dud set. at nearly twenty a set, even if that is the case, I'm not giving them a second chance.
