D’Addario NYXL Electric Guitar Strings

D’Addario NYXL guitar strings will bend farther, sing louder, and stay in tune better than other strings.

Envisioned, perfected, and manufactured by D’Addario in New York, this newly engineered, break-resistant high-carbon steel core and plain steel alloy delivers a whole new level of freedom, confidence, and power. NYXL’s provide more strength and 131% more tuning stability by utilizing a completely reinvented wire drawing process and revolutionary corrosion-resistant tin coating application. The reformulated nickel-plated string windings have greater magnetic properties resulting in higher output and enhanced mid-range frequency response for more presence and crunch. The NYXL sets are designed with the most popular string gauges for their ideal combination of flexibility and tone. Re-engineered to be stronger for enhanced output.
