D'Addario XL Electric Guitar strings are world-renowned as "The Player's Choice" amongst guitar players of all genres and styles. XL strings are wound with nickelplated steel and are known for their distinctive bright tone and excellent intonation.

D'addario pays more to have their ball ends precision turned from solid brass stock. The edges have radii that prevent the ball end from cutting into wooden bridges or guitar tops. Each string is twisted to perfection right down to the three neatly wrapped "lock twists." And those lock twists help keep their plain steel strings from unraveling or breaking prematurely. Each and every spool of precision drawn high carbon steel wire D'addario uses goes through three quality control tests before it becomes a set of D'addario strings. Pioneering innovative string design has been a D'Addario family tradition for nine generations. Most guitar players don't realize that the inner core wire in ALL D'Addario steel strings is made from carefully drawn, hexagonally shaped, high carbon steel wire. The six "edges" of the core wire bite into the softer wrap wire, securing it all along its length. Environmental Package.
Gauges: .0095; .0115; .016; .024; .034; .044

Things You Will Get:

  • Guitar String Set

good strings. better than nyxl in my opinion.


sounds great, lasts a long time.



I'd buy them over and over!


I love D'Addario strings, and these sound and feel fantastic!



Great Strings


Great strings. They never let me down.



Better than nines


I needed a heavier gauge than nines these work perfectly



Definitely would buy again


Very Flexible strings, that don't have any slack or tension when playing. They also last long and stay in tune which is something you always look when picking stings.



Daddario is a must


Best sounding strings period. I have particularly sweaty hands and these strings never rust. They keep their brightness longer than other brands.



Great in-between gauge


This is a great gauge for players who use a heavier set on a shorter scale guitar, and want something that feels the same on the longer scale instruments. I'll keep a set of these on my Telecaster and use the straight 10-46 for a Les Paul. Feels seamless when I switch back and forth between the two guitars. Great sound with long life too.

Perfect Stratocaster Strings


I fought the 9's vs 10's battle for about a year with my strat. These strings are the perfect size in my opinion for the long scale length of the strat. They brought my Vintage style JM strat to life with the correct setup. Easy bends but they do not feel weak like the 9's and don't seem to float too far of the fretboard (regardless of action) like 10's. My setup with these on my strat is as follows. 1.) Five bridge springs pulled tight (flat-tailed) 2.) High E and B are at just shy of 4/64ths at the 12th fret 3.) G and D are just over 4/64ths at the 12th fret 4.) E and A are half to 3/4's of the way to 5/64ths at the 12th fret Pickup setup (measured pole piece to bottom of string on the E strings): neck - bass 4.5mm, treble above 3.5mm middle - bass 4mm, treble above 3mm bridge - bass 3.5mm, above 2.5mm Neck relief measured at the 7th fret (first and last frets 'fretted') is about .008-.010. Plays so well with these strings!
