Electric guitar strings are made of nickel-plated steel. It was the same crisp tone as an uncoated string. The OPTWEBI coating gives a feeling of being in nature. Their coating technology protects against the common causes of rust and decay, extending tone life longer than any other brand. Anti-Rusting on steel strings prolongs tone life.
👤I will be the first person to write a public review of the new strings. I don't really follow guitar media anymore, but the fact that an Elixir-only player was unaware of these coming out made me more interested in them. They showed up while I was trying to order my usual strings, the Medium (.11 -.49), and at first I was confused, since when were there coated strings? What is the difference? Can they really improve their king of the "$10+" strings given their monopoly on it? The answer is yes, by quite a bit. I'll concede the following points before I get into a review of the product. I've been playing the Elixir strings for about 2 years now, after using D'Addarios and the occasional Ernie Ball for a decade. 2. From my observations, the product is a love/hate product with few people posting that they're just whatever. If you fall in to the hate/dislike camp for any reason, these aren't going to sway you. 3. I wanted to like them so I waited to review them to make sure I didn't get confirmation bias. Opitweb is a pretty big improvement in two ways, and I think I'll continue using them over Nanowebs unless their longevity turns out to be dramatically shorter. After restringing my primary guitar, I noticed that these didn't require any major post setup stretching or adjusting. 3 rounds of tuning, stretching, and re-adjusting is what D'addarios usually require. Sometimes the nanowebs need a 3rd round after a bit of playing. They've been remarkably steady in holding their tune after a single round of post thread stretching. I have to wonder if it's not the strings. They have a much brighter and sharper sound to it, and it's very noticeable when unplugged. I'm not sure about the composition of them and in general I'm not very familiar with what metal or construction technique is involved in what brand, but whatever flack coated strings usually get for being muddy isn't applicable with these. The difference in high-end frequencies is easy to hear when tracking through the everyman setup. The product is very similar to the existing product from Elixir, but with a slightly improved sound and feel, and definitely smoother feeling action when sliding around the fretboard. You will almost certainly like these if you like them now. If you don't, you won't get along with these. If you love the sound of a fresh set of D'Addarios or Slinkys, then you should give these a try.
👤I bought a 10 pack and have already broken the high E string 3 times in 4 days, right at the bridge where it is locked to my Floyd Rose. I had to replace the high E string 3 times in 4 days. I practice for about 6 hours a day. They seem to last longer but recently, they have begun to break like crazy. I tried these out because my hands are very bad. I love the sound of them. I have to change back to regular strings. I will go broke if I keep replacing these.
Electric guitar strings are made of nickel-plated steel. It was played for a warm tone. The strings are kept from getting in the way of playing with the soft, slick feel of Original POLYWEB coating. Their patented coating technology protects against common rust, which is why it is more effective than any other brand's coated strings. The light gauge is.012.014.029.036.
👤I put a set of Polyweb lights on my ES-335 Pro and the D string almost immediately began to shed its coating between the bridge and stop bar. Within a few hours of play, the coating was gone between the 5th and 7th frets. Why did the five star review come up? I contacted the support team and they replaced me with a new set. They didn't claim it was normal and they didn't quiz me about my passing habits, but they corrected the problem. The difference between success and failure is how you handle issues.
👤I would hear the phrase'buy the cheapest strings you like and change often'. I did the nickel plated standards based on the advice of the guitar shop guy. I was stupid to not try these sooner. Many people shopping for strings have 1000's invested in guitars, Amps, pedals, and much like the idea of putting go kart tires on a Ferrari to save a little money, are skimping in the LAST place you should... the strings are the ones that let you feel the road The strings are still changing often. If you need the extra 5 bucks to buy these over the standard $6-8 strings, you should cut some coupons for the grocery store. If the car doesn't handle that well, you won't have fun driving so was it worth it to save money? The answer is no. The box says it is warm, slick and fast. That is correct. I feel that my playing feels cleaner because of the'slick'. You can have a marketing idea for free.
👤I've been playing guitar for 36 years and I've never had an issue with Floyd Rose Tremolos. I have used D'Addario strings 9-46 gauge for most of my time playing, but I never thought I would use another type of string. I wanted to know if the strings were smooth and fast after I came across them. I think D'Addario is better than my guitar after stringing it up with the Elixir strings. I tried to get the B string to stay locked into the bridge by using the 9-42 gauge, but it kept sliding out if the block was used. I finally got it to the point where I could actually tune the string, but one bend and it would fall out of tune. The B and the high E strings both fell out of the bridge and I couldn't get them to stay locked in. I went online and found some forums where other people with Floyds had the same problem, only in those instances they had people telling them it was their fault, but I know better, and it's not me or the bridge. Looks like it's back to D'Addario's. It's a waste of time and money.
👤I use nearly every string out there for my electric, and these Polywebs are what I'll stick with. They last for a while. It was ev. Er. Since I use a metal pick, I am hard on the strum ends. I don't use metal picks, but I go a couple years without needing a change. The neck parts of the strings are not slippery and only need a quick wipe. I don't like these on my acoustics, they're too bright for me on acoustic guitars, but for electrics, you'd be hard pressed to find anything with the longevity of these bad boys.
Pure nickel wrap wire has a vintage electric guitar tone. The packaging for strings is always fresh. It was made in the U.S.A. for the highest quality. Plain Steel.012,.014,.020,.029,.029,.029,.029,.029,.029,.029,.029,.029,.029,.029,
👤I have played guitar for 45 years and now own 3 electric guitars. I have tried many different brands and types of nickle, but 11-48 pure nickle is suited for more types of music in my ears. The purer of tone is Nickle, and the mellower needs flat wounds. If one only plays a single song, try flats if you canstrum or play a lead nickle.
👤I've played for a long time but never tried these until I got anLP tribute and decided to throw them out of the box. Really... HOLY COW! These strings are soft? Their sound is crisp but still mellow. The sustain is insane. I have never been so happy over a set of strings. I'm not sure how long they'll last but if they only last a couple of weeks, I'm happy with them. You're missing out if you've never tried pure nickels. I suggest replacing your strings with something else. D'Addario, thank you again!
👤I have been playing professionally for 30 years. I have been a devoted user of EXL115 for twenty years and never tried pure nickel strings. I put these on a goldtop and was blown away. I usually have to roll off electronically because of the gorgeous tone. The strings are sweet. I'm not sure how they compare to other brands, but D'addario has never let me down. If you have never tried pure nickel, try it.
👤I use.12 gauge flatwounds on my guitars. I was asked to play a rock tune in a drop down tuning and they were flapping around a bit. I don't play that much guitar. I put it with these.13's. The tuning stays stable because of the extra weight. I buy this brand often. After nearly 35 years in the business, I can't say that jazzers sound or feel any better than these. These aren't as bold as some other roundwounds I've played. Overall, very nice strings.
👤I prefer these over the others. The first and second strings survive regular 2.5 step bends without breaking or slipping off the ferrule, unlike the other brands, and they seem smooth, like polished or something. The neck tension info is on the package.
👤I use a micro fiber cloth to wipe down the strings and fret board after I play. The sticky strings on the 1st 3rd strings seemed odd to me as it doesn't happen with others. After a couple of weeks, I noticed some rust on the strings. I cleaned them with 2000 grit paper since I was heading out for the gig. I don't have to do this with any string because I haven't had an issue with others. I like the sound of nickel strings. For the first week, these sounded like new strings. It's back to DR Pure Blues for me after 3 weeks.
👤The "stickiness" and higher tension of the set is a turn off. The D'Addarios feel a bit less tense. I like flatwounds so I never cared for the brightness of regular nickel-wounds. This set might be the best of the best because of its pure nickel sound.
Medium 10-46 neon multi-color colored electric guitar strings are hi-def. It's designed to give your stage presence a little extra pop. The strings have a neon colored K3 coating that delivers longevity, more projection, fewer unwanted overtones and enhanced clarity. It's a great tool for learning and teaching guitar. 10, 13, 17, 26, 36, 46
👤My son and I are learning to play the guitar. He is 7 years old and is very exited about these helping him. I thought about getting myself some but have grown out of looking at the strings. The finish is strong. The small amounts came off when bent. I expect it to wear like the package states. It doesn't seem to be coming off anymore. They sound good. They are made in the USA and are a little pricey, but they fit the purpose. If you want your guitar to look like a pride banner, I would recommend them. They are wearing well. The tuning is still good. The finish is coming off the high E, B and G. The strings are not wound. I mean a little. There are a few spots that wear the pick hits. He has been playing more often than taking lessons. His teacher finds them useful as well. It's easy to tell an eight year old to put their fingers on the strings. Instead of a lengthy discussion, he should have his fingers in the right spot.
👤I bought the strings to help me learn to play the guitar in the video game. The game uses colors that match the strings. I think that it helps in the beginning to orientate the user to the correct string, but I can already see that the benefit of the string color will diminish as I get better at playing guitar. I hope to be able to play on my own. The game should be set to invert the string presentation in the options menu as this will help later on. I wish they had set it that way.
👤I thought it would be cool to pair these with the game Rocksmith, so I picked them up. It was a great idea. If you're new to guitar or have trouble with your finger tips after a short time playing, give these babys a try. The coating makes it easier to play. As you play the strings with your pick, it will slowly wear where the strings meet the frets, and sometimes it will also wear where the strings meet the frets. This doesn't bother me at all. I know that this can bother some, but just be aware that the string color can wear off, especially if you like shredding. Happy jamming.
👤I play my guitar daily with these strings. There is a The packaging states that the coloring is not designed to stay on indefinitely, and the general idea is that you would put these on before a live show. Even after months of use, my strings retain 80% of their color. The picking area has worn off more than the fretting area, so I can still easily identify my strings when fretting, and a quick glance at any area of the strings accomplishes the purpose of being colored. Each string has a small dot of natural color at the bar that I couldn't care less about. I felt the description of the color was unclear, so I knocked off a star. It has been permanent enough to accomplish what I needed during my learning phase. The strings are just as good as the factory strings.
Super Slinky is one of the most popular electric guitar strings. The tone was bright and balanced. The finest and freshest materials are in California. Jimmy Page, Iron Maiden, and many other guitarists around the globe have used the Super Slinky electric guitar strings. The electric guitar strings are manufactured to the highest standards and are of the highest quality. Super Slinky wound strings are made from steel wire wrapped around a steel core wire. The plain strings are made of high-carbon steel and have a bright and balanced tone. The Super Slinky gauge is.008.012.016.024.032. 3 sets.
👤I haven't been playing guitar for a long time, but I have never heard of it happening to someone else. Ever. The high E string does not want to cooperate as I attempt to tune up. It goes flat when I get close. I thought I had a bad tuning peg. I didn't wonder anymore. The strings have only a few hours of light playing on them, but that nasty E string just let go. The little brass anchor was unwound. I salvaged an E string from another guitar I don't play as often as I would like, and also strung it with strings from the new pink 3 pack. It snapped as I loosened it. The strings are the same as what I replaced. I think so. There are two E strings in about 2 minutes. That is quick for me. I found a makeshift anchor for the original string. The string. She broke again. What is the poor musician supposed to do? I'm ashamed to admit how long the last strings were there. Maybe I'm incompetent. The last set I bought was fine, and before the E string went all to hell, they sounded pretty good. I think Jimmy Page doesn't have these problems.
👤Don't be afraid to try different brands. It's possible that your style of playing doesn't fit me. I've tried a lot of brands. I've stayed with him because he never let you down. Ignore the paper plane and shark on the Marshall head. Changes to your setup will not make a difference without strings. I would do a setup with the current strings for your action and then install your new strings. You may need to adjust your pickups to achieve the sound you want. If you are buying your strings online you will probably want to pay someone else to do it for you. Don't be afraid.
👤My entire guitar collection is made of the Super-Slinky's. I used D'addario's for many years in the 80's and 90's, but they would lose their sound very quickly and break very easily, so I tried these back in the 90's after a friend recommended them to me. They stretch nicely in a short amount of time when you first string them, as opposed to some brands that will stretch and never stay in tune. They bend notes nice without breaking or distortion and stay in tune better than I used to, as many other brands out there are these days, as they aren't too expensive. I use sets of Super Slinky's for all of my hollow and semi hollow guitars. There is a It's time to try out Ernie's Super Slinky's, if you haven't used them before. I have a guitar with a Pro-Rok-R floating tremelo that has popped D'addario's at least 2000 times, but it is only used for studio use, and has never popped an Ernie Ball. Some guitars that I play daily and the strings last a few weeks before sounding "dead", and some that I rarely play have sets on them that are 2 to 6 years old and still sounds great. I didn't get longevity like that from any other brand that I've used before. When I used D'addario's, I had to change sets after every show, but now I get a few gig before needing a change. They are great for me, my playing style and my needs. I play metal and shredding and each note is bright and full without the "tinny" sound that some brands gave me in the past. Since 1982, when I started playing and touring with many brands of guitars, I refuse to use anything else. m/ metal
It is designed for dropped and lowered tunings.
👤The 10-48 and 11-50 sets are reviewed here. I started with the 10-48 and was very pleased with them. They installed as easily as any other strings I've used and didn't take much time to get used to. The sound is clear and defined. I've only used them on a Warmoth build. The Pau ferro neck has a Bare Knuckle Juggernauts bridge. They sounded great until I pulled them off. I had a recent jam with a friend and I changed this guitar to a D standard and some drop C. The 10-48 low string didn't have the same tension I like at D standard/drop C. The clean sounds were very clean and had good definition. The mid gain sounds were great. A good fundamental tone. I didn't find them tight enough at the standard tuning. I swapped them for the 11-50 set and was happy. The sound is the same. They have better tension now. I've mostly used Blue Steels over the last year. I've recently tried the new strings from The Dunlops, the DR Dimebag 10-52 set and the Ernie Ball LTHB. I like the Heavy Cores better than those. The Heavy Cores had a great sound and did not fade as long as the DR Dimebags did. I didn't like the start of the Ernie's and felt a bit too bright. I have some DR DDT's, but I have not tried them yet. I mostly play metal but also play Rock/Blues, Jazz and other genres. I wouldn't recommend these on a 335 or Arch top, but I would recommend them to anyone.
👤Most of the story is said in the title. I used these for drop D tuning. I really liked the functioning of the low D string. It would hold up with the right amount of tension and stability if I attacked it hard. These are the most lifeless set of new strings I have ever installed on a vehicle. D'Addario 10-46's are my typical set. The lowest string wouldn't hold up to heavy attack in drop D tuning. These dunlops were functioning fine, no breaking, etc. It sounded worse than D'addario's to me. If you want something very subdued and subtle, you could find a use for these, but I can't imagine a good use for them. Within an hour, I took them off. Back to the drawing board and looking for a set that holds a proper tensioned D in drop D tuning.
👤I have yet to break a string with a stick. They're strong and last a long time. The Heavy Core strings have a big tone. Compared to normal strings, they have a little more tension, and this is good because lower tunings don't sound floppy. They're as comfortable to play as the normal strings. If you want a louder and present sound, I recommend these strings.
👤I have strings on a hardtail ibanez rg, 25.5 inch scale, Duncan nangul/Sentient pickups drop-C tuning. The strings felt weird at first. They reminded me of the Boomers I played for. They both have the same fat tone and feel at the pick. The Heavy Core strings feel great under my fretting fingers. They behave like.10s at normal E to E tension and allow a nice, low action. They sound a lot bigger. You will have to adjust your settings because of the fatness of tone. I had to lower my bridge pickup because of the lower action. You'll have to adjust your neck relief as well. I like the strings. They have a huge tone, they're bendy and flexible, they deliver as much clarity as your pickups allow, and I can really dig in with the pick for some serious chugging. These strings have been nailed by Dunlop.
Steel outer wrap. It was a perfect blend of highs and lows. It's suitable for all styles of music. 012, 014,
👤I fell in love with these strings because they were the stock strings on the 59 reissue. The magic was gone after I changed the strings. The guitar was harder to play. Put these back on and they felt right again. They have less tension than most popular nickel wound strings and sound warmer. I use them on my vehicles.
👤You can usually get a 3-pack of these for less than a 3-pack of D'Addario. They are priced right compared to those two. They are good strings, but restrained in tone compared to other brands. They wear out quicker than the Slinkys. I wear strings out fast because I play a lot. The extra money spent on the other brands is worth it, as I like the tone better on the other brands and they both last longer. These do sound good, if not remarkable, and represent a great value for the money. If you don't look for something with a heavier or brighter tone, they are a good value. Reviewers who said they had strings snap while putting them on, or within 10 minutes of playing, are doing something wrong. If they are strung up correctly, that shouldn't happen.
👤I don't like giving negative reviews. The quality control seems to be run by monkeys. Dumb ones. The fender 250 strings cost me $180.00 in a doctor's bill. The metal got so deep in the finger that it needed to be lanced by a doctor and chunked out. Its miserable. I saw the horror that is fender strings after looking with spy glass. So angry.
👤I used the original strings from my Squire Bullet and the ones from my Vibe 60. They were decent, but not much to make me want to buy more sets. I changed my mind at the last moment, when the strings were on a good sale price. Both guitars sounded like they had just received a $10,000 upgrade after restringing with the new NPS 9's. I oiled the fret board and cleaned and polished the frets during the string replacements. I think the guitars came with a bit of a beat from the wear and tear on their strings, and also from the shipping process. If you own any of the Squire series guitars, and you're not sure what to buy, try out a fresh Fender NPS's. I think they're good strings, make that better than average strings for the price.
👤I paid $9 for a set of 3 in December of 2021. I tried them out on a '86 Japanese Squier. They sound great, bend and feel great, and they have been playing for a month without tiring. These are not the bullet ends that I have used before, but they are holding their tune with non-locking tuners and tremolo use just as well as the Bullets, but with a slightly more flexible feel for the 9 gauge. I thought I'd try these because of the 1/3 lower price for 3 and they seem to be as good as my normal strings. If D'Addario makes these for Fender, that would explain it.

👤The E string snapped from the bottom when I put it on. The other strings are okay. I want an e string replacement.
👤I bought these for my granddaughter. I haven't heard them play but there are guitar strings.
👤There were only 5 strings in this set.
👤It seems like quality. Working well so far.

Considered the pioneer in coated string technology, Elixir® Strings are available in a full range of gauge for acoustic and electric guitar, bass, banjo, and mandolin. Purchase fewer sets of strings. Change strings less often. It sounds great, any time.
👤I had my guitar set up on the strings of the Elixir set, then switched to the Les Paul set. I cut them off because they are not usable. The 3rd string in the set is wound. There is nothing on the packaging that says this is a wound string. The guitar needs to be adjusted for a wound 3rd string. Every other string manufacturer specifies 'wound 3rd' in their sets, not doing so is just stupidity. My guitar buzzes and hums so loudly that the tone is ruined. I can hear the hum on the guitar. The ground path of the strings is interfered with by the string coating. Yuck. They sounded nice and bright, but I could not hear them. I wanted these to work out.
👤After a long session with a standard set of non-coated strings, those strings are discolored and dirty, and have lost their brightness. These strings come in. They stay fresh much longer than your standard non-coated string, which means you save money over buying several packages of non-coated strings. If you want strings that will sound good for a long time, then you should get these. People who say that your tone is dark must have great hearing. I think most of the people on the radio could not tell the difference between these and a fresh set of strings. It's a no-brainer for me. I switched and never looked back.
👤I had to restring the old Les Paul and these seemed like a good option. These are excellent for the price. These are great, regardless of the price. This isn't as good as strings costing three times. The high E made me angry. It is slippery. The over-over-under rule is needed to get the string tail at the machine head to wind. It worked well once I remembered to do that. I noticed they were very different. You can tune them by hearing how they make the other strings vibrate. Pull one string and move the tuning knob until the other strings start vibrating. They are that good. You need to make sure your first E is on. It is easy to tune the others after that. This resonance ability allows for a much colder, smoother tone. That leads to metal distortion tones. The strings are medium to light in weight, which makes them bright on a different guitar. The Les Paul can get into some light. I have a guitar that has a wide range of tone with these strings. They seem to stay in tune for a long time.
👤I did not like Elixer strings and tried other strings. I thought I would give them another chance since I've been trying so many string brands recently. I don't like that they don't have as much zing as other strings. The string seems to have a coating on it. I like using a lubricant string with normal strings to cut down on string talk and save the strings from my acid fingers. Elixer strings don't need lubricant. The strings are naturally slick due to the coating, which means less talk string. The coating on Elixers isn't as bad as some other coated strings. The coating doesn't start peeling off on you and is very durable. Elixers find a balance of long life and good tone. You won't have to change them every week because they won't be as rich. I've decided to leave my main "practice guitar" strung up with Elixers, while the other ones will use a more "alive" string for recordings and performances. This is the best coated string on the market.
The product is called DEN0946. There is a nickel plated steel light top heavy bottom electric strings.
👤I've been playing guitar for over 40 years and have tried every major brand. The best strings I have found are the dden ones, they only need a few stretches and stay in tune. I have to stretch and stretch before they stay in tune. You are ready to rock if you have 3 or 4 good tugs. I will not use anything else.
👤They are not a killer that makes them stand out. I don't have to recommend them, either. It was very run-of-the-mill. At least they come from the United States. Someone made these and got paid a decent wage.
👤My favorite strings are now mine. I have always used the 9-42, but wanted a little heavier string and didn't want the extra thick jumbo strings. These are perfect. The ones I had used in the past are now priced over $12 per pack. Forget that! Great strings! Check them out.
👤It's not saying much, but a thousand times better than the ernie ball. I don't like the way they're colorcoded.
👤This is the set of strings that I like the most. I like smaller gauge on my lighters strings to play riffs and larger gauge on my heavier strings to play bar and other types of music. This is the best of both worlds.
👤The thin outer winding makes for a smooth playing, but pick scrapes are weak. Love them.
👤The strings have not much bottom strings. I love them at a great price.
👤I was a little disappointed that it didn't have a sticker. These only lasted about 3 weeks and then fell apart, which is recommended for gig and stuff, but they stay in tune and sound nice.
👤Think of 'Ernie Ball' brightness with a lot more character, because of the incredible Harmonics these Dunlops generate. I wouldn't want them on every guitar, they have a unique sound. It is very durable. These may be great for lead. The sound gets a bit complex when overdriven. I would buy them again for the fun factor.
👤corde molto equilibrate, con una tensione leggermente superiore ad altre marche.
👤ma affidabili, altre corde da pochi soldi.
D'Addario's most popular round-wound, nickel-plated electric guitar strings are the EXL-110s. D'Addario is the world's largest manufacturer of strings.
👤They are packaged in a set. They are trying to save on materials, so I would have preferred if each string was stored on its own. They are grouped together two strings at a time, so be careful when removing them. The strings are long lasting and good quality. Even with locking tuners, they take a day to stretch to tuning.
👤I have been using D' Addario strings for 10 years. I will continue to use D'Addario strings.
👤I have been using these for years in most of my guitars and feel they are the best. All of my arch tops use D'D flat wound strings. Excellent quality brand.
👤The best strings stay in tune.
👤The strings seem good.
👤This is my set of strings. Since forever.
👤For years, I have been using Daddario. It is more convenient to order online.
👤Excellent service. I bought for my customer and so far he has not complained.
👤The Saiten was absolute top. The sound is better. Erstklassig
