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. 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
  • Environmentally friendly, corrosion resistant packaging for strings that are always fresh

    Comments about D'addario Nyxl1164 Nickel Wound 7-String Electric Guitar Strings,:

    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!

    Comments about D'addario Nyxl1164 Nickel Wound 7-String Electric Guitar Strings,:

    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.
