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.

These seem like very good strings. They tune up easily and hold their tuning well after a short time. They have a nice feel under the fingers and give a good, bright tone which lasts well.

I'm not sure these will lure me away from my Elixir nanoweb strings which I have used for years and love, but they are well worth a try if you're looking for decent strings. If you find they suit you, they should serve you very well.

By the way, I do find that every time I catch sight of the manufacturers' name I end up with
"With my ring dumma do dumma dah,
Whack fol D'Addario
Whack fol D'Addario
There's whiskey in the jar"
going round in my head for hours, complete with guitar riff. This is not really the fault of the strings, however, and other users may not be afflicted in the same way. :o)

Everything about these strings is quality, including the packaging. Within the outer cardboard sleeve, the strings are secured in heat-sealed packaging which specifically protects them from oxidisation after they leave the factory - meaning superior tone from the moment you use them. D'Addario know what they're doing and how important these things are to people for whom music matters.

Replacing the strings is so easy because of the colour-coding system on the packaging and the strings themselves, which makes it clear what strings go where.

The tone and feel of these guitar strings outperforms any others i've used - in my personal experience, the weight and responsiveness is second to none. It speaks volumes that some of the best guitarists in the world use this brand of string.

You can play a range of styles with them - blues, jazz, hard rock - and they're suited for downtuning to perhaps drop D. They hold their tuning really well and are very durable.

No matter what other strings i try, i always revert to D'Addario in the end!

By A. I. McCulloch TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 24 Jun. 2014
Style Name: NYXL1046 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Is it worth paying the extra for these strings? Well, yes, if you are particular about them.

They feel more substantial under your fingers - the core seemed heavier than other brands - but are not harder to bend.
There is a definite improvement in tone over standard strings; these replaced a set of yellow Rotosound 10s and the difference was noticeable.
When newly fitted, they sounded fresher for longer than others that have been used; the usual strings being Rotosounds or Ernie Ball's.

Aesthetically, some may find the different coloured ball - ends of the D'Addario's less appealing and a bit gimmicky, but that's just a personal choice.

For the home hobby guitar player, these are an expensive choice when measured against some others available (over twice as expensive on RRP).

For gigging or studio work, professional or semi - professional musicians will no doubt appreciate the definite improvements in quality and tone provided by these strings and be happy to absorb the extra cost .

I really like them, they are great (uniformly silvery) they do indeed stay in tune a long time and sound great on my guitar. I (like other reviewers) think they would make a great gift; The cool packaging, the appealing look and feel, just the over all surprise at the quality as a gift. For personal use though, I would stick with my trusted cheaper ones with the inadequate way I play!
