STRING FACTS

Stay in Tune Better

STAY IN TUNE BETTER

No string has ever offered this level of stability. Torture tests prove NYXLs stay in tune 131% better. So you don't waste time tuning, and can start playing sooner.

Strum Harder

STRUM HARDER

Put more power in your power chords. Strength tests prove that NYXLs are 20-40% stronger than anything you've ever played.

More Punch and Crunch

MORE PUNCH AND CRUNCH

The reformulated nickel-plated steel alloy boosts amplitude in the 1 kHz to 3.5 kHz range, modernizing overall tone, without ever losing that incredible nickel-plated steel feel you love.

Bend Further

BEND FURTHER

At two whole steps higher, NYXL strings are still at less than 75% of their breaking point. In the same setting, standard strings are at 90% of their full capacity.

REVIEWS

"Settle right into pitch and have such a noticeable clear tone, wow!!"
- Korel Tunador (Goo Goo Dolls, Katy Perry)

These things are legit…have a brighter, chimier sound to them…definitely seem a little louder. They REALLY DO stay in tune much better than anything I've used before, and I cannot emphasize this enough.
- Chris, Hollywood, CA
"Wow!... after a long solo the tuning is perfect and they last twice as long. Way to go, D'Addario!"
- Pat Metheny

All they claim to be. I've never had a set of strings stay in tune over the course of 3-45 minute sets but these did….Not only that they were still completely in tune the next morning when I played it. Not only do they stay in tune but 3 weeks later they still sound crisp & new. Most highly recommended!
- Michael, Placerville, CA
"The best electric string I have come across. They not only hold up to all of my onstage brutality, but they are louder and more articulate"
- Richard Fortus (Guns and Roses)
"They feel better, sound brighter, and last longer."
- Alex Skolnick

I can tune my guitar and play it for a couple hours and still not have it go out of tune. Even if I'm using the tremolo bar and bending strings, these things stay in tune. These are miracle strings in my mind. Most importantly, they sound GREAT!
- Wilhelmina Z.
I have been using these since i beta tested them. They play and sound great… and last a long time!!!
- Earl Slick
