I'm no expert, but they're the best strings I've ever used. I will say this though, for me, the benefit of NOT having them in individual envelops is that they’re vacuum sealed. I restrung a friends Les Paul last week with Ernie Ball strings in individual envelopes and in a sealed package. But I thought they were devoid of any character. I prefer the sets with the gauges on each one. A follow-up on the strings - they are outstanding. They're not bad strings at all, just very neutral. FAQ Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by basses51, Jul 19, 2017. These sound like XL's on steroids and with a bit more class based on everybody's opinion. I just barely tolerate that system in a six string set, but for a set of ten pedal steel strings it would be a deal breaker. Email for technical support. Share. Anyone else relate. I paid close to $28 for one set after adding almost $8 for the 2 extra strings and shipping. I get 3-4 gigs from one set on average. I would bet Paul Franklin changes his own strings every day. Share. Their customer service is the best I've ever seen. The 6string sets aren’t bad, but the 10string sets should be put in individual envelopes and sealed up. These NYXL’s have already lasted twice what the cheaper sets will do, and I’m gonna see if they’ll go 30 or more gigs. I don’t hear him complaing about the packaging.

Thanks to both of you for the replies. Gold Supporters see zero ads! I think I still have on the same set from when I last posted about them! I’ve been using D’addario balanced sets for the past few years. All I can say is, if you haven’t tried these strings because of the packaging, you’re missing out. I've been using them for about two months now and am quite impressed with them - I have used the heavier "PF" Nickel gauges for several years now, but have found the NYXL's to be outstanding for tone and feel, and very smooth under the bar. The legend is printed on the envelope and the colors become obvious to you in little time.

Everyone is different, but personally, I just feel they are not shimmering tonally and once I feel any fret wear under the wound strings - particularly the D string. I put a set of these on Sept. 21st 2017. The first thing I thought of, was WHY can’t D’’ADDARIO do this? Thank you for your support! Neither bright as pure steel nor as lo-fi as pure nickel, the NYXL strings balance a full, present and unaffected EQ with just enough warmth to lend character. I juts don't want the strings I currently have to go to waste, so I'm using them up before trying some NYXL's. I was the guy giving them out in Dallas, and thanks to all who stopped by the booth to get their two free sets of NYXL strings...and extra thanks to Mike Sweeney for hauling the remainders back to Nashville! I tried three sets of the strings but had to learn the color code system. Comments. They work for me. Every player should try them at least once. Our tone and intonation is … The NYXL's are impressive, weird how they need almost no streching at all to set. D’Addario NYXLs are the best strings made right now, and the best I’ve ever used. I put nyxl 10-50 BT on my LP custom a few weeks back. Imagine trying to figure that out on a dark stage. Incredible tuning stability and exceptionally long lasting. No envelopes, no buy. Clear and clean sounding. If you buy NYXL's as singles, they are NOT colour coded and the gauge is on the packet as per other strings. Seething with rage. It was a total NIGHTMARE, laying out each individual string, measuring with a micrometer, to find out where they go. Was a George L stainless user for years. D’Addario NYXL Electric Guitar Strings Review. Like Bill I was given a set @ the Dallas Show the jury is still out on them and in regards to the color coding I don't have a problem with it but there are color blinded people that paly and I see it would create a problem for them. D'Addario NYXL Strings Review Strings are a very personal thing. I've been playing guitar for 37 years now; most of that time primarily on D'Addario XL strings. Powered by Just not my thing. It was nice to meet you all and hear so many great players. I've tried XL Nickels on a few occasions. They are good strings but I think Fatbeams were created by bass gods. I’m definitely not a fan of the color coded ball ends. I use them on my ESP Jazz and they don't seem to die at all - they just get better. I've never heard that - strings create more fret wear after they age, or am I understanding it wrong? All I’ve been using since I first discovered them a year or two ago. Too cool. I have favored 10's since I was in my late teens and have tried many other brands large and small, different gauges over the years but in the last 10 years or so just primarily XL's in the balanced tension 10-48 on all my electric guitars - 24.5" scale, 25" scale and 25.5" scale. In some circumstances that would be very beneficial and quite a few players use them in the studio for that very reason. Overall, balanced tension makes sense to me both in theory - and there's a lot of content to review 'out there' on that matter - and in practice. Just got home a few days ago. Great feel, tone and they seem last me 4 gigs instead of normally getting 2 gigs out of 'normal' EXL's so it's not a bad value given the feel and tone. I would rather they be in individual packages though. The regular sets of ProSteels never ever lasted that long with consistent tone and tuning stability. Share. If I ever feel any wear on wound strings from the frets it drives me to distraction.
