Great Tone

By cryer

Comments about D'Addario EXL117 Medium Top/Extra-Heavy Bottom, Nickel-Wound Electric Guitar Strings:

These are the perfect size; you get the thick lows and and the huge lead sound without tearing your fingers to shreds as you shredd. They're perfect for rock or metal.

Comments about D'Addario EXL117 Medium Top/Extra-Heavy Bottom, Nickel-Wound Electric Guitar Strings:

Sound great when you tune to D standard tuning (just like they are recommended for). No complaints. If you want to play songs that are in D standard and want it to sound a bit heavier than your average Drop D tuning, I'd buy these. Had em on for a few months and no breakage and have worn in nicely. Jamming Amorphis songs sound great with these.

    Comments about D'Addario EXL117 Medium Top/Extra-Heavy Bottom, Nickel-Wound Electric Guitar Strings:

    These strings are great for low tunings, especially drop D, drop C, and even drop A. However they are not very resistant to sweat, and they got worn after only one day of frequent use.
