About These Strings

NYXL1149 is designed with larger gauges for players who prefer moderate flexibility and a full, beefy tone.

DAddario NYXL guitar strings will bend farther, sing louder, and stay in tune better than any string youve played before. Envisioned, perfected, and manufactured by DAddario 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. NYXLs provide more strength and up to 131% greater tuning stability by utilizing a completely reinvented wire drawing process coupled with a revolutionary fusion twist process for the plain steels.

NYXL1149 Strings

Compared to Elixirs of the same gauge - these strings are louder, brighter and just feel much 'fizzier' .. Not sure yet if they'll have the longevity of Elixirs but they certainly are livewire strings out of the box .. worth an extra 0.5 on a Marshall volume knob I reckon
