Product Reviews for D'Addario Electric Guitar Environmental XL Super Lite, .009 - .042, EXL120

D'Addario Electric Guitar Environmental XL Super Lite, .009 - .042, EXL1204Dave BJanuary 17, 2012I just finished an in home shoot out. Contenders were these - Elixir and Fender 3150L (pure nickel). I was going for gauge, and D'Addario doesn't have pure nickel in this gauge. They have slightly smaller bass strings. I changed strings after a few days so they still all sounded very good. These were second place to the Fender. The Fender were clearer above the 12th fret and I am guessing because of the bullet end (am using a Strat), had more sustain. The Elixir were not as defined as either these or the Fender for chording. Again, this is a very good string. I choose the Fender because of perceived clarity above the 12th and overall sustain.
