D'Addario NYXL Strings - Pitch Stability Test


collapse expand iconDescription

The D'Addario NYXL1046 Light 3-Pack Electric Guitar Strings represent a breakthrough in string technology. Constructed with an exclusive high-carbon steel core and reengineered nickel-plated steel wrap wire, these strings offer peerless strength and tuning stability for maximum playability and tone. Guitarists will revel in NYXL's ability to hold pitch through heavy whammy bar use and extreme bending.

High-Carbon Steel Core Provides Superior Tensile Strength

NYXL1046 strings carry innovative high-carbon steel core that delivers tensile strength over traditional nickel-plated steel cores. This added strength allows the strings to resist breakage under heavy stress and enables greater pitch stability through extreme techniques like dive bombs, squeals and multi-step bends. The high-carbon steel core is then wrapped in reformulated nickel-plated steel wrap wire, which boasts an optimized surface texture for enhanced grip and reduced finger squeak.

Revolutionary Manufacturing Process Improves Tuning Stability

NYXL1046 strings are created using an exclusive Fusion Twist wire drawing process that results in a rounder, smoother wrap wire. This process, coupled with the strings' high-carbon steel core, provides astounding tuning stability over traditional strings. Guitarists can aggressively attack the strings without worrying about notes falling out of tune. NYXL1046 strings make experimenting with whammy bar tricks, drop tunings and alternate tunings a frustration-free experience.

Custom Light Gage Optimized for Versatility

The NYXL1046 Light gauge—with string gauges ranging from .010 to .046—is ideal for guitarists seeking a balance of comfortable playability and balanced tone for a variety of musical styles. The lighter gauges on the treble strings facilitate easy bending and fretting, while the slightly heavier bass strings provide tight, defined low end. This gauge is a versatile all-around set perfect for rock, blues, jazz, fusion and more.

Lifetime Guarantee and Environmentally Friendly Packaging

Like all D'Addario products, NYXL1046 strings are built to last and backed by a lifetime guarantee. They are packaged using recyclable and biodegradable materials, allowing guitarists to feel good about their purchase.
