Product Description

Your Strings Matter.

D'Addario's XL Nickel Wound electric guitar strings are engineered to serve as the critical link between you and your guitar. XL's are precision wound with highly magnetic nickel-plated steel to exacting specifications, resulting in strings with long lasting, distinctive bright tone, and excellent intonation. Ideal for the widest variety of guitars and musical styles, XL's are the choice of countless professionals around the world.

Round Wound

The most popular and universal construction, Round Wound strings deliver the traditional textured feel most players are familiar and comfortable with.

Nickel-plated Steel

Renowned for their distinctive, bright tone, XL nickel-plated steel is the industry standard for many genres and playing styles.

Hex Core

D'Addario Nickel Wound strings are wound with nickelplated steel onto a carefully drawn, hexagonally shaped, high carbon steel core. A high carbon steel alloy that is six-sided in cross section. When usedas the core or “center” of a musical string, the 6 edge points firmly grip every turn of the wrapwire, ensuring a tight wrap and longer-lasting string.

The D'Addario Difference

It all starts with our exclusively engineered and built string winding machines. There is literally nothing like a D'Addario string machine. The combination of the most advanced computer-controlled winding technology and stringent incoming wire inspection delivers unmatched consistency, string after string, set after set. Every D'Addario string is made in the USA, ensuring the highest quality and performance.

String alloys have a dramatic impact on your tone, feel and string life. D'Addario's diverse selection of electric string alloys include:
Nickel Wound
Chromes

My favorite guitar string brand hands down.
Sidney Harding
They have a nice thick sound, bright enough to be clear, good mids, nice bass notes, clear trebles.

The wound 3rd (G) string keeps your guitar in tune better. With a wound g, it's harder to bend notes on that string, you have to put a little extra muscle into it. I've gotten used to it at this point and love the tuning stability - totally worth it for me.

I've been experimenting with different kinds of strings for a couple of years now. I've tried a new kind every month or so: flat-wounds, round-wounds, half-rounds, pure nickel, nickel-plated steel, various gauges, and various brands. To my ears, these sound the best on my 335. They make solid bass notes and sweet highs, all rich in harmonics.

And I'll never use an unwound G-string again. The plain G's sound dull on my guitar; they lack harmonics and sustain, but not these. (If you do a lot of string-bending, you may prefer an unwound G.)

These strings also feel right under my fingers.

And they're just as durable as anything else out there in their ability to maintain tone.

I think the 11's are a good compromise between rich tone and ease of play.

After experimenting for two years, I put these on my guitar yesterday for the second time. I'd already tried them once and concluded they sounded sweet. Now, hearing them after hearing a lot of other string sets, these sound "right" to me. In about a minute after putting these on my guitar, I knew this was the all-around sound I'd been looking for.

I have used the EXL115W set for years. Nice to have the whole set again. Sometimes have to buy the EXL115 without the wound third, and then have to find the wound third in a single string. Not fun. I like the sound of the wound third. I play a thin hollow-body electric and love how the strings sound and are easy on the fingers. No more thick calouses on the fingers. Playing weekinds and practicing, they last a long time with the same sound quality.

I'm so happy that these strings exist. They have an excellent bright tone, and I can use a wound g while playing 11's

I got these about five months ago and they still have not broken on me. That is a record. The tones are warm and welcoming, not as sharp as with other strings. It is the sound that I like though.

Good strings but not as good as some brands out there. I use Ernie Ball electric strings and went to buy some more and found they (Guitar Center) were out of Ernie Ball .011s so I purchased these. They were great except they felt a little tacky for the couple of months that I had them on for. Also, not being coated, they make a lot more noise when you slide your fingers up and down the fretboard. But for the price, great strings.

I've been moving toward heavier strings on my electrics, but I find the plain 3rd on an .011 set to be still and uncomfortable. The wound 3rd in this set is much nicer to play.

I play about half acoustic and half electric in a set. When I switch from an acoustic with .012s to an electric with .010s, I have to adjust my technique; so I started using heavier electric strings to make the transition easier. It helps a lot, but I also notice that the beefier strings sound better through magnetic pickups. (I was using D'Addario EXL110 before, which are made from the same material, so the sonic difference is purely due to the heavier gauge.) I wasn't expecting that, so better tone is a goody-grab-bag extra.

If you have a good setup, the heavier gauge is no harder to play in my opinion. If you've never tried .011s on your electric, I encourage you to do so. You might be pleasantly surprised, as I was.
