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. NYXLs provide more strength and 131% greater tuning stability by utilizing a completely reinvented wire drawing process combined with a revolutionary “fusion twist” at the ball end of the plain steel strings. 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.

  • NYXL's feature D’Addario’s exclusive New York manufactured, high carbon steel alloy for unprecedented strength – play fearlessly
  • 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
  • NYXL1164 is optimized for 25.5" scale length: Plain Steel .011 .014 .018 Nickel Wound .028 .038 .049 .064

Great strings


Sounds great and keeps tuning like no other



Long lasting tone with these strings.


I use these strings on 2 different scale length guitars currently. One is a 26.5 and the other is a 27 inch scale 7 string. The package says they are balanced for a 25.5 inch scale but they work well with my current setup without unnecessary extra tension. They work great for the standard tuning setup of a 7 string but I currently am using drop A tuning as well as drop G# and the tension is still excellent. I have no tried these strings on a multi scale guitar yet so I am unsure of how they would perform but I would imagine the strings would be even more balanced ina multi scale configuration.



Im gonna start ordering them in bundles ,


Great tone ,long lasting ,best strings in the business.



No better option for 7 strings of doom


Works as needed like always. Super reliable set of strings.



My go to set for 7 string


Solid strings ! Great on tension !



Best strings hands down!


A good friend of mine, highly recommended that I try the D'Addario NYXL 11-64 strings for my Schecter Damien Platinum 7 string guitar. The first time I slap these on my guitar I was completely blown away how their tone is clear and how long the strings last. I'm never using any other brand of guitar strings ever again!

Awesome strings, even better service!


I use these for A Standard and they are perfect. Stay in tune very well and can last up to two months of heavy use before even showing signs of use.
