D'Addario EXL120 Super Light 09-42 Electric Guitar Strings Super Light 3 Pack

D'Addario's XL Nickel Electric Guitar strings offer a distinct, bright tone, with excellent intonation and a "fret-friendly" nickel round wound feel that make them the top choice of guitar players of all genres around the world. The nickel-plated wrap wire is ideal for magnetic pickups, relaying the highest sound quality.

All D'Addario strings are precisely wound around a hexagonally shaped high-carbon-steel core wire by computer-controlled machines guaranteeing clear intonation, rock-solid fundamentals, and incomparable consistency in every string. The tight core tension produced through this rigorous quality-controlled process results in a harmonically rich, longer-lasting string.

Artist Black Strat 9-42

By: on 14 November 2023
Had I been able to upload photographs of my self-modified Artist Stratocaster that the 9-42's has restrung, there would be no need to say more, but as long as I am here, may as well tell you that I've shopped Artist Guitars for many years and their products not to mention service, has never varied. The D'Addario Super Lights' equaled my expectations, and now that I have dropped string gauge from 10-46 to 9-42, I'm off to wear them out... Thanks Artist Guitars!

Why use anything else?

I’ve been a professional guitarist for more than 20 years and played in many countries including England, USA and the Bahamas. From Gibson Explorers to Clapton Strats, these strings have remained consistently good quality, stayed wonderfully in tune and have lovely tension during string bends. The tone really makes your guitar ‘pop!’ Whether you play Jazz, Funk, Rock, Blues or Reggae, these strings will give you the ammo you need to get the job done.

A great string for a great price

Love these strings, they sound great and are super smooth to use. You loose a little off the bass end of a thicker set but the tone definition and bend-ability is perfect.

I purchased 2 sets of these at separate times and for the price in comparison to many other good brands I think they are very good value. They are also more enduring than many of the cheaper brands with good tone.

Over the years I have purchased many items from Artist Guitars and have always been very happy with these purchases and this latest one is no exception. Their quality and prices are exceptional and I have recommended them to family and friends and they have always been exceptionally happy with their purchases too. If on rare occasions I needed help or advice, it is always promptly available. Artist Guitars are always my go to place. I am intending to buy a guitar amp soon. Peter.

I have been using D'Addario strings on all my gutars for 35 years now. I use the 9-42 set on my SSH strat style electric guitar. I like the consistent quality with no need to reset the intonation when I put on a new set of strings. I was given a Les Paul style kit for Christmas, so naturally will put the same set on it when it is completed. My other guitars are12 string acoustic, 6 string acoustic and PJ bass.

Joe Satriani uses EXL120s' so if they're good enough for him, they're good enough for me
