Style Name: Light Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I already use the EXL111 as my go-to electric string and tried these as part of the Vine program. I have to say I really couldn't feel the difference. From what I can see the only real difference in this balanced set is that the D string gauge is .25, whereas the same string in the EXL111 set is .24. Since the string construction and plating is the same, I have to assume these will have the same longevity. I guess as long as both are still available (EXL111 being phased out?) i will be selecting solely on price. Either way you can't go wrong as D'Addario makes a fine product at a reasonable price.

Style Name: Light Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm going to start by saying I'm a guitarist with 40 years experience... on acoustic. So.. my experience with electric guitars is limited by comparisons. I've been playing my Les Paul with GHS boomers and relatively happy. I put this set 10-46 on and I could't really hear a difference. Someone told me once that many of these various brands are made in the same plant and just labeled differently and that wouldn't surprise me either. I can't give these a 5 star rating because that would have to be based on some great differential between them and the GHS or Dean Markley I have used and frankly.. they all feel and sound about the same... very very good but too similar to make much of a difference. If they prove to hold their tune and sound for much longer than the others I may revisit my review and bump it up but as is.... they are as advertised... a very good string by probably the worlds largest string manufacturer.

Style Name: Super Light Verified Purchase
Worked really well for a student player, makes it especially easier to play bar chords. As a long time player I still think the overall design is right on. The drawback is the 6th string which, as a routine 9-42 player I feel is a bit light at 0.040 and therefore requires a consciously lighter stroke for the pedal notes.

Style Name: Light Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These are mellow sounding, somewhat bottom heavy strings as played on my Epiphone Les Paul Special. Altho they are labeled "Bright Tone" I do not find them to be bright. They are more like amplified acoustic strings in tone. Depending on the music you play, and what position you play (if you're in a band) these might work well for you. They are mellow, with a full round sound great for backing guitar, or to accompany singing, and they are reasonably priced. I don't think they would work as well for lead guitar. Not really rock n' roll strings, not enough bite. Admittedly, I am comparing them to the Elixir Strings Electric Guitar Strings, 6-String, Super Light NANOWEB Coating that I was playing immediately prior to trying these D'Addario's. The Elixer's are almost twice as expensive, but probably the best strings I have ever played.

Style Name: Light Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have tried many types of guitar strings and these are good. They give me a nice tone and volume. They feel heavy, solid and well made, I don't think they will break too easily, even when my relatives attempt to play the guitar. Easy to play for great music. They are packaged differently than other guitar string manufacturers, but that's ok.

Style Name: Light Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Once I find something I like, I usually stick with it for years. While I've used D'Addario strings on my acoustic guitars for well over 15 years, I've always stuck with Ernie Ball's Super Slinky (9-42) on my Stratocaster electric, and that's about 20 years. The new nickel D'Addario XLs (10-46) are considered extra light (that's what the XL is for), however, they're still heavier than the Super Slinkies, and the difference is noticeable in the playing. I've had the new XL's on for only a short time today and even though they're a tad heavier, I like the feel, even though more force is required for bending notes. That said, the XLs feel a touch more stable and allow more of a "hit" when picking or chording without jangling. I actually felt myself to be a tad faster on the slightly heavier strings, which wasn't something I was expecting. It may be that the Slinkies are actually a bit too slinky for my various styles of playing--and it only took me 20 years to find this out! It will require several weeks of playing to really test out these new strings, but they seem like winners, as long as I can get used to the additional force required for bending notes. The overall feel is that the strings stay under my fingers and I don't have to play with such a light touch as I did on the Ernie Ball's. I also have a set of Ernie's 10-46 (same weight as the D'Addario) and in a few months I'll try them out for a comparison.

The tone of the XLs is bold and powerful, fatter than the Slinkies and therefore a bit funkier. I like them a lot, but only time and days of playing will really tell the tale. It means I'm going to have to experiment with my amp and pickup positions to find the various new sounds I like. The great news is that on first inspection and playing, they feel GOOD and solid, and that's quite a compliment from a picky picker. It looks like I may be a D'Addario convert for my electric guitars as well as my acoustics.

I've loved the D'Addario strings for their consistency. They sound great right away. To keep them going longer, I incessantly wipe them down especially the underside. I've learned to discard before they actually get significantly worn.

I think these strings are ideal for an electric guitar. They sound great on electric guitars.
