The best strings I've tried so far
May 2, 2021
I've been playing guitar since 1964 and have probably tried strings from every manufacturer over the years, including other D'Addario versions but the NYXL's are the the ones that have made the most difference sonically and last the longest. I highly recommend them.
ProsCrisper sound than "normal" guitar strings. They will wake up an otherwise blah-sounding guitar - in my case it was a Custom Shop '56 Stratocaster that I've had for 20 years that I rarely played, thinking that weak pickups were the problem. The NYXL's woke it up.
ConsMaybe a bit expensive but worth the difference and they do last longer every other string I've tried.

I love these strings! They feel good, bend well, stay in tune longer and last a long time.
