About These Strings

NYXL1046 are designed with the most popular string gauges for comfortable playability and an ideal electric tone.

D'Addario NYXL guitar strings will bend farther, sing louder, and stay in tune better than any string you've played before. 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% greater tuning stability by utilizing a completely reinvented wire drawing process coupled with a revolutionary "fusion twist" process for the plain steels. 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.

  • NYXL's feature D'Addario's exclusive New York manufactured, high carbon steel alloy for unprecedented strength play fearlessly
  • Improved tuning stability compared to traditional nickel wound strings - get in tune faster, stay in tune better
  • Wound strings with enhanced mid-range frequency response in the 1 - 3.5 kHz range more presence and crunch to cut through the mix
  • NYXL1046 offers an ideal combination of comfortable playability and electric tone: Plain Steel .010, .013, .017, Nickel Wound .026, .036, .046
  • Environmentally friendly, corrosion resistant packaging for strings that are always fresh

Good strings, didn't require as much stretching as normal XLs to tune. Decent shipping time from Artist.

Hi. I do a lot of string bending and as a result I was always breaking my E string. I was buying packs of 5 E strings, when Artist Guitars suggested I try these strings. Wow!!! Great tone and they stay in tune and I finally can bend without that dreaded E string breaking. I only use these strings now. Thank you Artist Guitars. Great service, product knowledge and cheap prices on name brands. Keep up the great work

I found that the D'Addario NYXL1046 strings are what they say... they took no time to settle in and stay in tune, great sustain, easy on the bending, smooth on the finger picking and nice on the crunch... great performance - Greg - Newcastle - NSW

Ignore the previous review, this dude is a fool. These strings are the best thing ever, the settle down real quick, have really clearer crunchy mids and adds crunch to my sound! And if you look on ebay the US prices with shipping cost MORE that these people at Artist...

D'Addario NYXL strings

Bought two sets at a price which was ridiculously above what you can get them for from USA. Thinking that they would be what they represented on the pack. They took several days to reach a point where they would stay in tune and even then were able to be stretched again. They were too pliable for me and I kept pushing them out of tune. Very bright and didn't enhance the tone of my Fender Telecaster or the Fender Thinline Telecaster 72 (wide range hum bucker) guitars. Do not recommend them especially at the price. I have gone back to the standard nickel wound 10 - 46 xl110s.
