    # 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, did …

    # 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

    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

    most is that I made a risky bet because I was leaving the studio and I benneficé their new sound (single) for the taking ... good to know for later. with other members of the group we were a little glued. Change the day and live in the studio with a new brand of strings is a bit dumb on my part! but result: normal tuning because they leveled super fast and the sound and comfort ideal for decision.
    I take a glance! and shoo 3 games in advance!

    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 them …

    I use almost exclusively strings D'Addario nickel wound for almost 2 years. I started to pull it pretty high there's some time.
    I passed by Ernie Ball, but the feeling that they provide and their high price does not suit me. I liked the sound of Dean Markley, but these strings are of poor quality and break easily. I also found myself at D'Addario, String affordable, and pleasant feeling to well-balanced sound. The brand offers a wide variety of games and tie, which is really a plus.

    Another big plus is the presence of colored balls at the end of the strings not to be confused when changing. I do not know if other brands are made (this is not the case of the two above) but it's really c…

    Their lifespan is respectable for string "unsupported" (I do not like anyway).


    I go over regularly as soon as this choice I have to change strings!

    I have long wavered between ernieball and this one.
    For the final return on this one.

    Granted DGCFAD it gives me the same voltage as the schaller floyd 9-46 of the same brand in mid EADGBE.

    Life rather good I change them once a month against a once every 3 weeks for hernia.

    The sound is brighter than the EB, and a little more precise.


    NB: I often change my string sets because I played with a plectrum steel that end in "smooth" the three spun at the location of the attack.


    If properly cleaned, it take more than six months on a guitar used without little rusty. Comparatively, the EB are unusable after 4-5 months because not spun quickly end with rust.

    I've never broken, …

    I've never broken, and even using my floyd so nag.
    Their only flaw is the excessive brightness after editing that fades after some hours of games, so avoid changing game 5 minutes before a live (which is anyway has avoided whatever the games).

    Once mounted, some require a small reaccordage hours to be precisely regulated, then, absolutely do not move, holding perfect tuning even on floating tremolo.
