Comments about D'Addario EXL140 Nickel Light Top/Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

I've been using these for as long as i remember and these have been my go to guitar strings. Wouldn't recommend for tunings lower than drop C though. But great feeling and bend-ability

best strings

By Metal Head 13

Comments about D'Addario EXL140 Nickel Light Top/Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

i have used the following strings for a couple months. Ernie Ball Elixer Dr and D'addario. And these are the best strings ok they are really slick give you a nice thick metal sound and love drop d c and b. These are also really cheap if you want the best strings at good price this is the way to go.

Great Strings!!!

By Stee

from Maryville, TN

Comments about D'Addario EXL140 Nickel Light Top/Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

This was my first set of light top/heavy bottom strings; though I have used D'Addario strings for many years. The bottom end strings seem to add a little "evil" to the heaviest riffs, while the light tops are still bendable and bright. Overall best strings I've used.

PLAYER'S CHOICE!!!!

By gibsonfendercharveljacksonprsftw

from Miami,Florida

Comments about D'Addario EXL140 Nickel Light Top/Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

I have used several string brands from DR, Elixir, Earnie Ball, Dunlop, you name it and D'addario I choose. I like light top/heavy bottom so i chose the EXL140 and its wonderfull. First of all, they last longer than earnie ball skinny top heavy bottom which i used before and they always broke in two seconds on me. Second, these strings seem to LOOOVE drop C!!! I have them on all my guitars and these strings handle drop D and drop C sooo well. Also, unlike all the other string brands i named, D'addarios have a nice rich dark sound to them and amazing sustain. The best thing about these strings are the colored ball ends which makes string changing easy. Im telling you, D'addario/Planet waves accessories is the way to go in strings and guitar

By far the best strings I've used

By Chandler Sowinski

from Oklahoma City

Comments about D'Addario EXL140 Nickel Light Top/Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

I dont know why I never used these in the first place. For he longest time I only used Earnie Ball Skinny Top Heavy Bottoms, but the problem I had with those is that they would break to easy and before you know it I was going through srtings like nuts. These strings feel great, and last a long time. Unlike Earnie Balls which have a much brighter tone these strings will make heavy riffs even darker...A definate must buy for any shredder that plays in the Extreme genres (death metal, grindcore ect.)
