Product Description

Style Name: NYXL0946

Product Description

NYXL0946 is a hybrid set, combining the high strings from a super light set (.009) with the low strings from an regular light set (.046). The result is a set with strong fundamental low end, but with super flexibility on the high strings.

D'Addario NYXL guitar strings will bend further, 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. NYXL's provide more strength and up to 131% greater tuning stability by utilizing a completely reinvented wire drawing process coupled with a revolutionary "fusion twist" process for the plain steels. 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.

D'Addario, the world's largest manufacturer of musical instrument strings, is known worldwide for unsurpassed quality and consistency. D'Addario continues to develop and manufacture exceptional strings and accessories for violin, viola, cello and double bass, incorporating innovative, environmentally friendly packaging that reduces waste and provides protection from corrosion. All D'Addario strings are manufactured in the U.S.A. using proprietary, digitally controlled, state-of-the-art machinery for unmatched performance, set after set.

Style Name: NYXL1046 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm really impressed with these strings, from the colour-coded ends (so that you don't get them mixed up), to the 'tight' sound they produce. I'm not that much of a serious musician, so my ears aren't tuned in the the differences between different strings, but they sound lovely and new at the moment - time will tell how long that lasts, but 'so far, so good'.

I strung them onto a Jackson Charvel - the bass string was slightly wider than the previous one, and I had to make adjustments with an allen key to get it to fit through the metal bar at the top of the neck, but I suspect that I might be the only one to have that kind of problem.

Really nice strings so far - I have high hopes that they'll last longer than the usual ones :)

Edit 16-08-14: Second impressions confirm the optimistic nature of the initial ones: the strings stay in tune really well; they seem to be easier to tune, as well - the strings never drop unpredictably when twisting the pegs, and feel very stable. They're a pleasure to pluck..

These have been on my Gibson Les Paul for a week now and show no signs of dulling. They have a great, bright sound and I do play guitar a lot at home. The light gauge guitar strings are a pleasure to play, as opposed to the tow ropes I have on my basses.

These strings are in the upper mid-range, price-wise but do represent very good value for money when bought from amazon (or a couple of their partner sellers), so I can happily recommend that you try them if you haven't already. Neat packaging makes them a nice gift.

The poackage quote: "D’Addario NYXL guitar strings will bend further, sing louder, and stay in tune better than any string you’ve played before."

I do have to say these strings are nice and comfortable, seem hard-wearing and durable as strings go. Always wipe your strings down properly after playing for a longer life.

N.B. This product was reviewed by my father

"I have been using standard D'Addario XL guitar strings for years; I tried lots of different brands, but when I discovered D'Addario, I stopped looking any further, so I don't need any convincing about the manufacturer.

"These new XL NY strings are claimed to have 'more punch, crunch, and bite', 'bend farther', 'sing louder' and 'stay in tune' better than any others. I tried a set of 10/46 strings, the same gauge as I normally use, so this should be a close like-for-like comparison.

"(The guitar was a Fret-King Corona GW, which if you aren't familiar with it, is basically a Stratocaster style, and in my view a really excellent and versatile guitar.)"

'MORE PUNCH, CRUNCH, AND BITE?'

"Yes (maybe). They probably are a little brighter/punchier than the standard XL's, but any new set generally sounds brighter, and I wouldn't say there is a world of difference in tone, particularly when one tweak of a tone control can change the sound so much (and sometimes you actually do want it a bit more mellow). Will they stay brighter for longer? Can't say at this stage. But the sound is great, whether or not it is actually all that different from the standard XL's."

'SING LOUDER?'

"Well, they certainly ring out nice and crisp and clear, just like the standard XL's. Louder? Not so you would notice. They are as loud as you would expect any nice, new set of strings to sound. I think this claim is either a) more along the lines of a general statement that they 'sound very good' (which is true), or b) intended to appeal to those guitarists who think you can never, ever be loud enough, no matter what amplifier you have (which is not true)."

Style Name: NYXL1046 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
At the time of writing I've lived with these strings for about a fortnight now and they are on my practice Strat i.e. a guitar I carry all over the place while working away from home etc.. First off, I'm a complete amateur, just to put into context their use. Two weeks might be a long time if you were gigging every night and warrant more regular changes. I do change strings regularly though, but I am primarily an acoustic guitarist. My regular choice for electric is 11s, and that's a mixture of D'Addario and Rotosound. That gauge allows me to compensate for a little heavy handedness at times - I have a tendency to pull the stings a little too hard.

Billed as "a new kind of string, a new kind of strong" they do feel very solid and taught under the fingers. The guitar is set up with a low action - needs a tweak - but in every day playing it doesn't rattle unless hit hard.

Guages in this pack are
10 13 17 26 36 46

Tension - and I do like this about D'Addario is that they do list tensions for their strings.

16.22/7.36
15.39/6.98
16.58/7.52
18.31/8.31
18.95/8.60
16.83/7.63

all at 25.5" scale length

I find this a useful feature when comparing sets, or making up hybrid sets - but ultimately it's down to feel.

At my level of playing (coming up to Grade VI/RGT) they feel solid under the fingers and the bass strings quite smooth. I didn't really notice dropping down a gauge.

Why only 4 stars - as an amateur you probably want a string that lasts well if you give them a wipe after a session. Too early for me to tell yet how these stack up, but early signs are encouraging.
