My personal favorite

D'Addario XL Nickel Wound ElectricPublished on 05/01/12 at 18:13
I've used these strings for about 8 years now and they've always been my favorite. I've gone through Ernie Ball, DR, GHS, Dunlop, Elixir and these have always lasted the longest and sounded the best. They stay bright and sound new for weeks if not months. They have a rougher feel than most which I happen to like, I like to be able to really feel the strings under my fingers. Recently I moved to Florida so I've been getting problems with them rusting within a week or so. Since then I have switched to coated strings, I tried Elixir but ultimately sided with Daddario again.
Strings are all a personal preference so not much use in recommending them, but I'll just say I've stuck with......

# How long have you use it?
About 4 years, at a rate of 6 games per year.

# What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Plus:
- Pulling, D'Addario was one of the first to offer this drawing
- Sustainability: 1:30 to 2 months due to play per day (for cons, I have hands that are more likely to be dry than moist)
- The color system to navigate between 6 strings
- Attractive price
- A new game does not sound too "twang-twang" as with Ernie Ball

The least:
- Poorly distributed: hard to find without a purchase online.

# Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes. The Ernie Ball (yuck, never understood the popularity of this brand), DR (blah,......

# Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes. The Ernie Ball (yuck, never understood the popularity of this brand), DR (blah, did not leave me a great memory and super expensive), the Rotosound.

# How would you rate the quality / price?
Pretty good. I'm two months with a game, it's mostly non-threaded strings that oxidize quickly.

# With experience, you do again this choice?
Yes.
Note that the price has dropped slightly in recent years. It went from € 6 20-5 € 90.

Do not buy

D'Addario XL Nickel Wound ElectricPublished on 12/16/13 at 07:14

Usually I use Ernie Ball 13-56 on my ES 335 on which I mounted a micro Jazz at Seymour Duncan. I plugged into a Fender Excelsior. That day, the seller is longer in stock. I take D'Addario.
I've ridden there three days.

The attack is too soft, the sound that differs too little depending on the intensity of the attack. I can not find the brightness of the sound that I'm used to. The clean sound is average. When I use an overdrive, the sound is flat and the warmth of its leaves.

Disappointed.

game goes everywhere but fairly temperamental, strings wear out fairly quickly and the sound is commonplace
versatile but not transcendent
