NYXL1046 Light strings are engineered to deliver optimal performance for guitarists wanting powerful, balanced tone across the tonal spectrum.

Deep, Punchy Bass

The NYXL1046 Light strings feature nickel-plated steel wrap wire over hex-core wire, which produces tight, punchy bass tones with outstanding clarity and definition. The nickel plating adds warmth and resonance, while the steel core provides tension and snap. The result is deep, solid bass that lets each note ring through.

Articulate, Vocal Midrange

At the heart of the NYXL1046 tone is a dynamic, vocal midrange that brings depth and dimension to chords and single-note lines alike. Chords take on a full, resonant quality, while lead lines soar above the accompaniment.

Shimmering High-End Sparkle

The NYXL1046 strings deliver chimey, shimmering highs that make melodic lines come alive and lend clarity to complex chords.

Superior Longevity and Performance

NYXL1046 Light electric guitar strings are built for longevity and consistent performance allowing the NYXL1046 to sound fresh longer than traditional strings. For guitarists wanting premium tone and playability over the long haul, the NYXL1046 strings are an ideal choice.
