D'Addario NYXL Electric Guitar Strings  

D'Addario NYXL guitar strings will bend farther, sing louder, and stay in tune better than other strings.

    Not what i expected.
    As a big user of elixirs, i was not too impressed by these. They wear out really fast and are very pricey.
    ProsGood tone
    ConsPricey, wear out quickly.

    More Stable, More Present, Just MORE
    I'm not a hype person: if there's a new hotness, I turn up my nose and go the other way. But these strings... My first experience with them was restring a customer's guitar; put the first string on, tuned up to pitch, BAM. Set right in and stayed. 5 more times, same thing. quick tweak, and it was set. No stretching, no endless adjustment, they went to pitch and stayed. Gave them a try on one of mine, and was completely blown away by the tone. I've tended to favor Elixirs and, for a while, Cobalts, but the NYXL's just have this... *presence*, I guess. There's just more THERE there, somehow, without being higher output. I don't know how they do it, but I love it! I keep trying different strings, but I keep coming back to the NYXL's. Right now, they're the best electric guitar strings on the market.
    ProsTuning stability is unparalleled Tone is just... MORE Not higher output, so still versatile Available in Balanced Tension sets, and tons of singles Pretty long lasting - not like Elixirs, but better than anything else I've tried
    ConsA bit pricey, would love it if they came down a bit... but can't say they're not worth it!

    Recently tried these, per a trusted friend and guitarist, and think they are great. Currently on my second set, they feel more stable than Elixir. Tone is a bit brighter yet full and warm.
    ProsStable, full sounding strings

    Premium string
    These are a premium string, and the price tag reflects it. They sound great and feel great to play. I currently have 11-48s on and they suit my Tele nicely. Bright but not too bitey. The only odd thing I've noticed is that mine don't want to stay in tune as well as I would expect and required quite a bit more re-tuning/tugging after first changing them in comparison to other brands I've tried. Also, on the first pack that I tried, 10-46, the small e string broke while tuning up. In 10 years of playing guitar, that's the only time I've had that happen to me. Might have been a fluke. At the end of the day, they're definitely better than your average D'Addario string.
    ProsLong sustain, bright tone, long life
    ConsNot the greatest at holding their pitch, and of course, they're pricey.

    Great set of strings!
    Since I put the NYXL strings on my Epiphone SG, I was hooked! The strings feel great on the hand and sound good too! I feel that there's less tuning required, and that the strings are "broken in" off the box.

    Great strings!
    Bought these out of curiosity as I usually get the regular 10-46 D Addario set. Had these strings on my main guitar for a little over a month and they do last as advertised.

    D'Addario NYXL Electric Guitar Strings 09-46
    This review is for the 09-46 NYXL strings.Believe the hype! I bought these just to try them out. (I didn't think i would switch to them because of the price) Sound wise i wouldn't say that they are better or worse, that's totally subjective. (Not that they sound bad) The big selling point to me was the feel! They play fantastic! They bend very easily,stay in tune and have a very nice "tactile" touch to them. An added bonus is the fact that they absolutely last much longer than the strings i used to use (would change them very two weeks) so they're actually cheaper in the long run.

    First time I've been impressed by a guitar string
    Great sound, feel, stability and longevity. To the person below a few posts with the tuning problems.... if you go with a different gauge string, even a different brand in some cases; you need to do a set up...more apt to believe it's the guitar not the string...but whatev dude.
    Prossound, feel, stability, longevity.

    Stable and loud strings!
    Got the D'Addario NYXL1156 set (11-56). Best strings for low tuning to Drop C! No more slack and perfect intonation. Highly recommended!

    Worth the price
    D'Addario's NYXL strings are definitely worth the extra bucks...they tune up well right out of the pack and stay nice and bright even after many hours of playing time. They also feel great; very much like regular XLs, but a bit smoother and slicker.
    ProsExcellent string life. Stay in tune very well right out of the pack.

    The stretch really well.
    If you have a tremolo of any kind, these strings are amazing at being abused and springing right back into tune. I am blown away by that.
    ProsSound, strength and flexibility.
    ConsThey get smelly pretty quickly.

    Best Electric Guitar Strings I've Ever Played!
    Great variety of gauge choices allows you to find the set for you. I go with the wound 3rd 12-52 set for down tuning on my six string and the 10 - 74 for my eight string. The wound 3rd for thicker strings is great. These strings have a tone that I would describe as D'Addario's answer to the Ernie Ball Cobalt series, high output and clear with a high mid bump. For me, this tone is perfect, perfect string gauges and great longevity make these strings just about perfect, best I've ever played!
    Pros- great variety of gauge choices - great tone - bright new string tone lasts - high and clear output

    Love them!!!!!
    I bought them just to try to see what the hype was all about. And was so glad I did, definitely worth the extra money!!!
    ProsSustain, clarity and fell!

    Superb New Product
    Thought I'd try them and couldn't believe how great they were. Big upgrade from regular D'Addario electrics. Definitely worth the extra money!!

    Awesome strings!
    These are simply the BEST electric strings I've ever used in over 45+ years of playing guitar. Like others have said, they project well with a slighter brighter tone, but NO ice pick. Chords ring out with great note articulation with this new alloy combination. They also stay in tune, and last longer than anything I have tried. Simply amazing! I've had the same set on my Strat for over a month now for numerous gigs, and they still sound great. Highly recommended!
    ConsNone whatsoever

    Good feel. Clear Sound.
    I am usually an Ernie Ball user (slinky). My tech recommended these strings one day. When I got them on I was not too sure of them. They seem to need some warm up time to get everything ringing out right. As they broke in I found them to have a nice gentle feel (not sandpapery). The sound is dynamic clean to metal.
    ProsBalanced set Light feel (not sticky) Good response and tone
    ConsNeed warm up time Drive and Gate are sometimes a delicate balancing act. Not as forgiving as Ernie Ball. These strings will keep you on your toes; but the sound does pay off.

    The worst strings I have ever had on a guitar . . .
    D'Addario has just come out with a new 'premiere' guitar string - the NYXL. The company hype has suggested that they are the most wonderful thing since the invention of the electric guitar. And, they should be since they cost more than double the price of a good set of traditional strings. I have been using D'Addario for years, so I forked over the money and bought three sets. I have three guitars, a PRS Custom 24 (a US made PRS), a Gibson ES 137 (which I generally use for jazz), and a Roland GC-1 (this is a Roland synth guitar build by Fender on a Strat body). I ordered light strings (10-46) which I put on the PRS and the Gibson. The PRS had 09's and I wanted to try a heavier set, and the Gibson had very heavy gage flat wounds that I hated. Now, to be fair to D'addario, both guitars sounded significantly better when I changed the strings. The sound of the new strings was bright and rich. Unfortunately, I couldn't tune either guitar with the new strings on them. I had read reviews that warned there were some tuning issues when the strings are new, but that the problems tend to disappear with use. I DID NOT FIND THIS TO BE TRUE! The strings were horrible. Even after three weeks, they sounded awful. When I picked either guitar for the first time in the morning, it was completely out of tune. If I plugged it into my Petterson tuner and carefully tuned it harmonically, it would be out of tune when I chorded it. I had to play each stopped note and retune to it. Even then, it was a compromise and on some strings the open strings were out of tine with the notes on the fretted strings. On top of that, if I took a break and made some coffee, when I got back, I had to retune the guitar. It was so bad that I could not believe it was just the strings. I checked everthing on both guitars and was unable to find anything wrong. Finally, today, after putting up with this problem for almost a month, I took the NYXL strings off of the PRS and replaced them with D'Addario Nickel wound XL's (009 - 32). Now, putting the lighter strings on the guitar should have exacerbated any tuning issues that were guitar related. To my surprise, after I streached the strings in, everything was perfectly in tune. I played all morning and after about 20 minutes of retuning while the strings broke in, they remained perfectly in tune. I have replaced the strings on the Gibson with the same result. I threw the 3rd unsed set of NYXL's in the garbage. My experience may be unique, although tuning issues were mentioned in most of the reviews that I read. However, before you pay $10 or more for a set of strings, I would think carefully about it. I have used D'Addario Nickel XL's for years with no issues and I will not change again in the near future.
    ProsThey sound great
    ConsThey won't stay in tune.
