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

I settled on the D'Addario XLs sometime ago. I use them on a Telecaster (actually 2 of them). Great tone and they bend well with no breaking strings. They sound fantastic when they're first put on, and tend to settle in after about a week of playing. Tone stays nice and consistent until I change them which is every 4 to 6 weeks. I play daily and a total of about 8 to 10 hours a week. Peace.

I have used many brands over the years ernie ball,etc. But this has been my favorite strings to use, they can handle a ton of aggression and still not break. If you have managed to break your strings in the day or week you bought them, and are left with distrust with that company then these are the strings for you.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have enjoyed playing on these strings for about six months, but since I have put them on only one electric guitar of three I regularly play, they have not received a full six months' of use. After six months, the sound is a bit less bright and the sustain is somewhat damped. This probably is a result of dirt and some perspiration associated with playing. Since I have not played professionally in many years, I do not change strings as often and such accumulation of contaminents is more likely. My favorite strings (Ernie Ball Slinky Cobalt Strings) have remained brighter with much less diminished sustain even though they have been played more over the same time period. Also, the cobalit strings were noticably louder when first installed and have remained louder over the same period. This volume difference provides the cobalts with an increased sensitivity. In fact, I really cannot notice any material deterioration of the cobalt strings. While a choice of strings is very personal for an accomplished guitarist, I believe others would generally find results of this comparison similar to mine. Accordingly, I have rated the D'Addario strings with 4 stars because they are quite good, but I have to give the Ernie Ball cobalt strings 5 stars in comparison. For your information, I used to use the D'Addario strings most often before the introduction of the Ernie Ball cobalts, both in the same light 10-46 guage.

The gauges are identical to Ernie Ball Regulars (yellow label) but the D'Addario's string tension feels stiffer, which is nice for slide playing. I like my action medium-low, comfortable for straight playing and bending, solid intonation for chords, yet not too much fret rattle for slide.

I usually stretch the heck out of Ernie Ball's after putting them on because they have so much spring in them. I deliberately left the D'Addarios unstretched overnight and found they settled in nicely without much stretching at all. Their new sound is quite bright as advertised, but has far less of what I call `new string jangle', which is fine by me. As a kid, I'd sweat that off in an hour but these days, playing a number of instruments, it can last awhile.

There's a string tension chart, handy for designing a custom set and each pack has a serial number. I'll admit I'd never considered the possibility guitar strings were worthwhile targets for counterfeiting, but apparently that's the case and D'Addario provides a web site lookup to verify your set. If you do come across fakes, if you're willing to report it, they'll provide you with a genuine replacement for free.

I've used D'Addario phosphor-bronze acoustic strings on guitars and mandolins for over 25 years and swear by their quality and consistency. I've used Ernie Ball's on electrics for even longer. Habits can be tough to break but, as my playing has broadened out from my rock roots, I find it interesting to experiment with different gauges and windings. Finally nailing a sound and feel you've been chasing after for years makes it all worth it.

~ I have been using these strings exclusively for the past two or three years and have been happy with their sound, quality, and lifetime.
~ I am playing jazzy blues using a vintage 1966 Gibson ES 330TD thin-line hollow body processed through a Creamy Wine Limited Edition Fender Blues Junior iii. The sound I am getting with all tone controls set at neutral (mid-point) and both of the P90 pickups on is fine. However, I am probably going to step up to the 11/49 medium version of these strings next time to get a slightly fatter sound (without going all the way to the mellow sound provided by the D'Addario Chromes.)
~ In summary, nice strings at a great price. Recommended.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
For a good, basic set of regular light gauge electric guitar strings, it's difficult to go wrong with D'Addario's EXL110s. The range of thicknesses generally works well, and D'Addarios tend to be pretty consistent. Some other brands may offer special features that go beyond what you get with the EXL110s (e.g. coating, super brightness, and so on), and some players prefer a slightly heavier or slightly lighter gauge string (e.g. sets that start with 9s or 11s), but for most purposes these work great, hold their tuning well, and seem to last pretty well, too.

I have been playing guitar off and on for 30 years and have used all different brands of strings. These are the best bang for the buck! Not only are they inexpensive but they sound great and last a long time. I play a lot of blues and bend my strings a lot and very rarely break these strings. I highly recommend.
