D’Addario 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 D’Addario 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. NYXL’s 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.

Great Electric Guitar String Choice


Restrung my guitar an two days later played it live. It sounded great.



Too bright sounding for me.


Good strings but too bright for me. I prefer a warmer sound. I usually change strings about once a month and these last about the same as my other strings



Started and stayed great


These are great uke replacement strings. Once they were tuned they have done a great job of staying tuned.



Money's worth!!!


Strings are great, they have a good sound and vert light weight. They last longer than most strings. Highly recommend



I would buy this product again


The strings feel great and sound great. I'd buy again.



Great strings Allways


Best long lasting set of strings I have used so far. Lightweight makes for great stretch notes. Try these, you will love em!
