D'Addario's NYXL1149 electric guitar strings represent a revolutionary step forward in string technology. Featuring an exclusive high-carbon steel core and nickel-plated wrap wire, these medium gauge strings are built for maximum durability and articulate tone. NYXL1149 strings stay in tune 131% better than standard strings, allowing you to focus on your playing instead of constantly re-tuning.

High-Carbon Steel Core Delivers Unmatched Strength

At the heart of the NYXL1149 strings is an exclusive high-carbon steel core wire that provides unmatched strength and elasticity. This proprietary core allows the strings to bend farther without breaking and sing louder with enhanced sustain. The steel also has a higher tolerance for alternative tunings, giving you more freedom to experiment.

Nickel-Plated Wrap Wire Boosts Frequency Response

The reformulated nickel-plated wrap wire delivers a subtle boost in output between 1,000 and 3,500Hz, resulting in a crisp, modern tone with enhanced pick attack and crunch. This improved frequency response helps your guitar cut through the mix, allowing your tone to shine through.

Hexagonal Core Wire Improves Intonation and Stability

At the heart of each string, a hexagonal steel core wire provides extra stability, greater reliability and improved intonation. The hexagonal shape prevents the core from twisting, ensuring consistent performance and intonation up and down the neck. This design, combined with the corrosion-resistant packaging, allows NYXL1149 strings to stay fresh longer.

Engineered for Premium Performance

From the exclusive high-carbon steel core to the nickel-plated wrap wire, every element of NYXL1149 strings is engineered for premium performance. These medium gauge strings are built to handle anything from articulate cleans to high-gain distortion without sacrificing tone or tuning stability. Experience the difference premium strings can make - order your NYXL1149 strings today.
