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.

• Improved tuning stability compared to traditional nickel wound strings - get in tune faster, stay in tune better
• Wound strings with enhanced mid-range frequency response in the 1 - 3.5 kHz range – more presence and crunch to cut through the mix

A very nice strings for amateur players


I do love nickel wound guitar strings that one of the best choices I made. It has some pros and cons, but the only negative thing it contains those strings are not long-living strings, soon they lose its colour and brightness of the sound. But not everything is so sad! They are soft and you don't cut your baby fingers if you're an amateur of playing on the guitar, they are very awesome of you like punk, or funk, or even jazz, they are good for any style of music. Those cool strings are very good for the strong semi-professional career and if you choose them you won't regret your decision.



Highly recommend


Out of all the strings out there I prefer these. Sound great. Feel great. Last a long time as well highly recommend.



Good strings


Strings put on hollow body guitar. Ring clean with nice clarity



Good experience with these strings.


Very happy with these strings. They hold up well and sound new for a long time.



Love them !


Great strings ! Hold tune fantastic and are very clear and articulate and louder than my other strings definitely my favorite!



Worth the extra


Maybe I'm crazy but I see a difference between these and the normal D'Addario strings. They seem a little easier to play and last longer. So I'm willing to pay the premium for them.
