      These strings always play in tune and intonation is always accurate no matter how long the strings are on the guitar.

          Comments about D'Addario EXL120 Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings (10-Pack):

          I perform and have played a lot of strings but always come back to Daddario XLs (9's on my Strats and 10's on my Tele & 335) The XLs are 100% consistent and always factory fresh out of the sealed plastic bag. I was told by Daddario that Musicians Friend is a top volume dealer and turns their inventory quickly. You can be sure their inventory has not been aging on some warehouse or store shelf. 10-packs are the way to go for best value and the individual poly bags mean they will last on your closet shelf until you need them. Whether you change strings every 2 weeks (me) or wait a long time, you can't beat these for tone, playability, or value.

            Comments about D'Addario EXL120 Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings (10-Pack):

            I have been using these strings for 45 years. I find them to be consistent in tone, tension, strength, balance and quality. I tend to play rock and I am a little heavy on the strings. A lot of bending and heavy picking. It is rare that I break a string. I don't change them as often as most people do but they still sound good. I find them to be a good quality string that is consistent enough that I don't need to play with the intonation when I restring. They have a bright sound that lasts, but it is also classic in nature. It is not a twang sound. It is more Nickel Bright then Steel Bright. They are nickel plated steel and not all nickel. That gives them a tone some where in the middle. It makes blues sound bluesy and not like country. But country still sounds good. Tone is a subjective thing so what sounds natural to me, might sound awful to others. I also like the tension on these strings. It just feels right. I was thinking of trying the 8.5 to see how they felt. Over the last 45 years I have tried many strings and brands. For Tone and Feel these are my go to strings hands down.

            Been using D'darios for as long as I can remember. Tried a bunch of different one when they came out but always went back to my ol' D' Dario's.
