These nickel-plated strings feature an exclusive high-carbon steel core and reformulated wrap wire engineered for unparalleled strength, tuning stability and tone. The NYXL0942 set provides a versatile 9-42 gauge range perfect for standard tuning on most electric guitars.

High-Carbon Steel Core Provides Unmatched Durability

At the heart of the NYXL string is a specially engineered high-carbon steel core wire. This proprietary alloy delivers up to 131% greater tuning stability and longer string life compared to traditional nickel-plated strings. The NYXL's are built to handle extreme techniques without breaking, allowing you to perform radical bends, aggressive picking and whammy bar dives with confidence.

Enhanced Magnetic Properties Produce Bold, Balanced Tone

D'Addario's reformulated nickel-plated windings have been optimized for magnetic pickup response, producing a powerful, well-balanced tone with enhanced brightness and punch. The midrange is slightly scooped for a tone that cuts through a mix while still being rich and full. These strings will make your guitar sing with exceptional clarity, projection and sustain.

Corrosion-Resistant Coating Means Longer Life

An advanced corrosion-resistant tin coating is applied to the plain steel before winding for maximum protection against tone-robbing oxidation and corrosion. Even with heavy playing, the NYXL's retain a bright, crisp tone for an exceptionally long period of time. You'll enjoy consistent performance and tone for the life of the strings.

Premium Materials and Precision Craftsmanship

Like all D'Addario products, the NYXL strings are built using the highest quality materials and manufacturing techniques. Made in New York, these strings undergo a rigorous multi-stage quality inspection to ensure flawless performance, maximum lifespan and unparalleled consistency. Now available at Guitar Center, the NYXL0942 set provides an unbeatable combination of tone, tuning stability and value.
