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..

Style Name: NYXL1046 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
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.

I'm a bit too long in the tooth to just believe any old hype regarding strings. I'm a guitar tech at a UK festival so its hard work to convince me. Well that and I like what I like which have been Dr Strings and Elixir's. Both of these have served me well. I'm always open to new things though and will try them. Now I've tried every conceivable variant of modern string technology and before I start I'm as well as saying I hated D'Addario strings. Never saw the attraction. I've tried Ernies latest offerings, M steels and cobalts and they whilst making your guitar louder make it into a treble squeak fest. So... the guitar in question. An Ibanez RG550 with Bare Knuckle warpigs in. I won't say as set up was a breeze, it never is with a floating trem, but it was dealt with and the relief and action checked and reset.

With this done I was able to go ape and really abuse the strings. Once the strings were locked down there was no further need to adjust even after an hours extreme bar abuse. Good start! The tonal range of these has more mid range punch than a standard set of nickel wound strings and seemed to tighten the overall tone of the hugely mid cut BK's. A good thing again. Heavy chord work further confirmed this with chunky chugging palm mutes. Single lines and arpeggio's were a lot crisper and sounded overall more articulate. This coupled with a nice lift in volume and the easy on the fingers feel. It makes these a no brainer. I love these to bits. So much so that come me needing to restring the rest of my guitars, these will be fitted. I couldn't reccomend these enough. Get em bought, its money well spent.

Style Name: NYXL1046 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
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!

I've got to be honest, I wasn't expecting much from these strings. I mean, they're just strings, right? It's not like getting a new amp, or a new guitar itself...

Maybe you're a guitar nerd, maybe you're just a casual player, but here's something we can all appreciate: these strings stay in tune better than cheaper ones, they really do! You know when you first put strings on and they're all over the place for the first day or two? I didn't really get that with these, they pretty much just stayed in tune as if they'd been on for weeks.

As for sound, I'd say they're a noticeable improvement over standard priced strings. How much you appreciate this will come down to how interested you are in tone, etc, but it's good to know you can get a bit of extra quality for the money if you want it.

Regarding durability... Well, I've only had them on a week, and I'm obviously not going to try and break them just so I can review how strong they are, but I've got no complaints so far.

Overall I'm surprised and impressed.
