Gauges (10-46).

D'Addario NYXL guitar strings will bend farther, sing louder, and stay in tune better than other strings. 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% more tuning stability by utilizing a completely reinvented wire drawing process and revolutionary corrosion-resistant tin coating application. 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. The NYXL1046 set is designed with the most popular string gauges for its ideal combination of flexibility and tone.

Features
  • Features D'Addario's exclusive revolutionary high carbon steel alloy

      Comments about D'Addario NYXL1046 Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      I really like these strings. I just recently got my electric and these strings were recommended. I definitely like them and would recommend them. Keep in mind though, that these are the first strings I have bought for my electric so I can't speak for any other strings.

      Comments about D'Addario NYXL1046 Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      I was disappointed with these strings. I bought 2 sets at GC about a week ago to try out on 2 of my Stats. I put the first set on and the high E (Eb actually, as I tune down a half step) string broke within a few days. I had to open the other set to replace it. he sound isn't any better than other non-premium strings in my opinion. After about a week of play the strings have already lost the new string feeling. I won't be buying these again. Especially when I can almost pay for 3 sets of my regulars (Ernie Ball Reg Slinky's) for the price of one pack of these

      These strings are well made, and as long as you pre-stretch them like you're supposed to with any string, they'll treat you right. The best part about them is they are made in the good ole USA, which I will go out of my way to support.

      Best strings EVER!

      By 

      from Chicago Illinois

      Comments about D'Addario NYXL1046 Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      The most pure tone ever, they stay in tune so perfectly (i didn't even stretch them out when i first got them), and they sound great in a recording session. these are perfect for ALL genres (from my personal favorites) Metal, Ambient, Blues, ROck. i would HIGHLY recommend anyone to try these stings. but make sure to get the right gauge string to go with your set up of your guitar! don't forget that, that is very in important!

      No Problems Here...

      By 

      from Brian Henneman

      Comments about D'Addario NYXL1046 Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      I put a set of these on my guitar on April 7th. It is now May 21st. They're still on there, and they STILL seem fresher than a brand new set of EXL110s. I'm in a touring band, and have played a LOT of gigs on these strings in the past weeks. Intentionally trying to see how long they'll last. I've had NO problems whatsoever. They stretched out in record time, and I rarely have to tune them. Your mileage may vary, but I'm gettin' the best mileage I ever got out of ANY strings. I've been doin' this thing for over 20 years now, and these are the best strings I've ever used. Wanted to hate them, because of their price, but they're actually saving me money, 'cause they last 6 times longer that what I usually get out of a set of strings. And counting. I haven't changed them YET...

      My New Favorite Set

      By 

      from Sioux Falls, SD

      Comments about D'Addario NYXL1046 Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      I usually like to have heavier strings. I usually have my guitars tuned down a half step, and love drop d tuning putting my guitar into c# most of the time. I was hesitant to use 10's but when I put them on it was like magic. On the top strings I can bend up almost 5 steps and return back with my strings still in tune, and that was only an hour after putting them on. No matter how hard I play the strings settle back in tune and haven't broken yet. Other people with tuning issues must have issues with set up, because I only have to tune when my guitar is exposed to temperature change. My strings have been on for over a month and will probably last for another month at least. 10/10 would recommend.

      Horrible Strings

      By 

      from Bozeman, MT

      Comments about D'Addario NYXL1046 Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      I bought these strings along with a set of the new Ernie Ball M-Steel strings, and did a shootout on both my Strats and Les Paul guitars. These we're not even in the same ballpark, and I actually found that my strings we're continuously slipping on both the E and B string. My experiences we're opposite of what Daddario claims in their advertisements. A night and day difference in tone, my band actually asked if my volume or amp settings changed when I switched back to the EB strings. Sorry Daddario, these are not for me.

      Great strings, but overpriced at $12/set

      By 

      from Woodbridge, NJ

      Comments about D'Addario NYXL1046 Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      I'm surprised by the negative reviews from Brad Tolliver and Matt Goetz. They mentioned serious tuning issues, but my experience with these strings have been the complete opposite. I only need to stretch these strings three or four times after putting them on, and they are amazingly stable, even with extreme bends. The strings sound great, with a bit more midrange punch than typical round-wound nickel-plated steel string. Strength seems good, and although I don't play that hard and rarely break strings, I did purposely put these through some pretty heavy abuse and they took it like a champ. A month and around 60 hours of play later, they still feel and sound like brand new. These are definitely the longest-lasting non-coated strings I've ever tried. The only issue I have with these strings is the price. $11.99 for uncoated strings is just ridiculous. If they were $8 - $9 a set, these would replace my D'Addario balanced tension XL strings ($5.49 a set) as my "go-to" set.

      Sound great.....When they are actually in tune.

      By 

      from KY

      Comments about D'Addario NYXL1046 Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      I've to got to agree with Brad on this one, these string just won't stay in tune at all on the B and high E strings, and that's just with normal playing, not any Gilmourish bends or anything of that sort. They seem to sound really good, its just a shame that they wont stay in tune.
