    Best of Both Worlds!

    By Cheagan

    from Palm Springs

    Comments about D'Addario EXL120+ Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

    I don't know about anyone else, but it has always seemed to me that 9s were too thin-sounding to be of any real use, but 10s were too difficult to bend. The answer is these 9.5s. They actually bend better than 9s because they offer a little resistance, plus they sound great strummed open. Nice, big, round tone without killing my wrist or fingers. And they stay in tune better than 10s, too. I will continue to buy these as long as they make them.

    awesome

    By Frank

    from Lockport, Illinois

    Comments about D'Addario EXL120+ Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

    These strings are absolutely fantastic. Before I put these things on, I was playing with a set of cruddy old rusty strings. I put the new ones on and it made by les paul sound amazing. They are great for stretching and all types of playing. This is one of the best buys you will ever make.

    great strings

    By g man

    from santee, ca

    Comments about D'Addario EXL120+ Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

    whats not to like? the strings sound bright and chimey at first, then settle in to a very easy playing bright but mellow tone. not too brittle, not to dull. this gauge is a really happy spot between 10's feeling to heavy and 9's feeling to light. get them.

    Great, inexpensive string

    By Bashful Johnny C

    from Oklahoma City, OK

    Comments about D'Addario EXL120+ Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

    These are great strings with lots of bendability and very little strain on the neck. They're also fairly inexpensive and have a good lifespan. I prefer a wound third string, but I rarely think about it when I'm playing.

    Great strings for 24 3/4" scale

    By pac1085

    from Rochester, NY

    Comments about D'Addario EXL120+ Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

    I recently purchased a Washburn D3, my first 24 3/4" scale guitar and I hated the 9's that came on it, they were too loose. I put a set of 10's on but had to use 5 springs on the trem to balance it out. They were too hard to bend and I didn't like the extra force needed on the trem. These 9.5's are perfect, I can use 3 springs in the trem and they sound/bend great!

    D'Addario EXL120+

    By MM

    from Phoenix, AZ

    Comments about D'Addario EXL120+ Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

    These may not be the best strings out there, but they sure work for me. I always break the A string then shortly thereafter the D string. Doesn't matter which guitar I'm playing, its just my playing style. Since I started using these 9.5 gauge strings I can predict how long the strings will last. The bottom end sound is fatter and I don't have twangy single notes in the upper register. For me, 9's are just too unpredictable with regards to breakage/tone control and 10's require too much strength when you have to play a club for 4 hours. In the last two years of playng out, I've yet to break one during a gig. Caution though, this isn't a widely used gauge, availability can be limited so I always try to buy 10 packs at a time to keep the cost down and ensure I have them on hand..... to each their own rock on!!! On a side note, I've been to several different Guitar Centers and my favorite is the Tempe, AZ location. Manager Bill Frazier is an awesome guy who has personally taken time on more than one occasion to help me out finding just the right head/cabinet/processor configuration. Thanks Again Bill!

    Top Quality Strings!!!!!!

    By Leo Thomas

    from Boston

    Comments about D'Addario EXL120+ Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

    I've been using these since they first appeared (in the mid 90's I think). As everyone else here has stated, 9's are just too thin and 10's (for me anyway on a Fender scale guitar) are too hard to bend , although I do like the feel of 10's. I have them on all my guitars and I've never broken one during a gig, D'Addario is quality all the way. The sound is consistent and they seem to last quite a while. Highly Recommended.......

        It's like the steering wheel on a car. You want to have some feel and feedback from the road but it shouldn't be difficult to turn the wheel. These 9.5's give me easy bending of 9's with the tension and feel of 10's.

        EXL 120+ is an A+

        By John Yates

        from Colorado Springs, CO

        Comments about D'Addario EXL120+ Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

        I have been using D'Addario strings for many years and just recently went back to the 120+ for my Strat with a Floyd Rose tremelo system after using the 110s. Also tried the GHS sets but they are better on the Les Paul It's a much better feel and stretchability for bending notes way out or subtley; it doesn't require as much pressure to fret a note and makes for a faster run.

        Making the switch

        Comments about D'Addario EXL120+ Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

        Normally I'm an Ernie Ball fan. I tried these D' Addario strings out for the first time on a guitar my friend gave me. They have a nice, bright sound to them and feel great to play. I was surprised by how well they played. I normally play a 10 or 11 gauge but this 9.5 is surprisingly perfect. I am officially making the switch to these strings (so long as D' Addario continues to make them).

        undecided

        By Steve

        from Durham, NC

        Comments about D'Addario EXL120+ Nickel Super Light Electric Guitar Strings:

        haven't made up my mind on these. It is not quite like 10's tuned down a half step. Not as bendable as 9's, but don't sound like 10's. Don't seem to keep their "sparkle" as much. Seem dull after playing them for a short while. Not sure what I was expecting. Will need to experiment more with these... 2 downsides. 1) definitely more expensive than 9's and 10's, and no bulk (10 pack) sets available. 2) Most stores around me do not carry these. So if you are on the road and need an emergency set of 9.5's, you may be out of luck.
