Perfect in drop tuning.

By vincent

Comments about D'Addario EXL116 XL Electric Guitar Strings Medium Top/Heavy Bottom:

I put these on a JS32T kelly. It's an "okay" guitar. Not bad and not really good, but priced very well for what you get. I set these up on it, stretched them, and tuned it to GCGFAD. Wow is the only word for the difference. Like the other reviewers said, these strings do drop tunings VERY well. These strings ring so perfectly, it would compliment anything blues to thrash metal. GREAT sustain. Long, but not so long that you have to consciously adjust yourself. The strings grip and bend well, with an intuitive feel. I will say I would recommend a lower gauge for normal and higher tunings.

Amazing Strings

By Swartz

from Sharpsville, PA

Comments about D'Addario EXL116 XL Electric Guitar Strings Medium Top/Heavy Bottom:

I just switched to these strings after seeing that Mark Tremonti used them. I figured if they're good enough for the best, then they're good enough for me. I was right. They are great for soloing and great for Drop Tunings. Anyone who likes that heavier sounding, edgy sound, these strings are for you.

Best switch I have ever made!

By Aquila

from Nashville, TN

Comments about D'Addario EXL116 XL Electric Guitar Strings Medium Top/Heavy Bottom:

Absolutely fantastic strings. After a lot of experimenting, I ended up with the EXL110s on my PRS mainly for Drop Db or D Standard... those general ranges. I needed to step it up more for my Drop C and Drop A# stuff, and these are absolutely incredible. Perfect tone in the low end, and since its medium top/heavy bottom, the leads are equally great! Soloing is even easier than on my 10s because it just feels so solid and sounds so great!
