great all rounder strings, I had bad experience with them some years ago so stopped using them and went onto ernie balls slinkys for many years. I didnt find the quality issues in the current daddarios, which is great. They are good strings and sound a tad warmer than slinkys, and a tad more tension as well. But Im happy and will stay with them for now :)
I really love D'Addario string and have used them for over 20 years :)
I play a lot of faster Rock/Metal style riffs and find the strings glide well and don't tear up my fingers. They last well but obviously you should be wiping down your strings after you have used them and human sweat does differ, some people just go through strings faster than others.
I hope the video really gives you a good idea of the sound they can produce and how they can work with a clean tone or a more distorted one. I really think that if you use other brands you should give these ones a try, I truely believe that you will prefer D'Addario to your current strings.
CUIDADO!!!!!!!!!! NO FUNCIONAN SOLAS SIN GUITARRA. las he agitado cual latigo pero no suenan. Voy a mirar una guitarra, esas cosas hay que avisarlas. Ahora ya no torturo con cuerdas, asi que he de pasar por caja otra vez para comprar una guitarra.
Could get a set of Ernie Ball .009s for love nor money (curse you all, Lockdown Guitar Learners!!!), so picked these up for what I thought would be a stopgap. Initially hated the lack of the strings being in their own individual envelope which I have become accustomed to, but once I saw and learned the ball-end colour coding system it was a doddle.
I think these strings somewhat hold the tune a little longer than the Ernie Balls, and have a more pleasant ring across the non-wound G B and E strings, but I'm no master musician so don't take my word as gospel.
Many guitarists are hard to embrace new things as we find a groove and stick to it, but via this happy accident I may well have to re-evaluate other aspects of my set-up!
After using Ernie Ball strings for years I thought I'd never need to try anything else, but I'm so glad I did, these strings have such a warmer and brighter sound than EBs, they feel better as well. And it could be just a myth but I've heard D'Addarios work better than most with guitars that have a floyd rose, and from my experience that is true, better than all in fact. I don't understand how that works because guitar science is on par with rocket science, but there you go. If you haven't tried these then you really must, even if you're sold on the strings you use.. Because I was!
Genuine product supplied by Amazon at a competitive price. These ARE the genuine article. Don't be swayed by other reviews that may state they are counterfeit or whatever. I entered the "Players Circle Code" into the D'Addario website thingy and it registered my purchase fine! On to the strings themselves. I write as a guitarist of over 50 years experince on the semi-pro circuit. I have used Ernie Ball and Rotosound in the past but I am definitely going to stick with D'Addario now they are available on Amazon at a sensible price. With a lovely bright sound, these strings have a decent life before they eventually go off. I am using these 10-52 sets on a guitars detuned a whole tone and they still have the right amount of tension, don't get flabby and allow massive bends! Highly recommended!
I loved my cheap strat copy but the strings were a slight let down, however these sound fantastic and I can really get that Hank Marvin tone and Buddy Holly Sound with these plus they take a lot of punishment and very rarely break, very reliable brand I been using for years. 3 sets in a pack is fantastic value too. They last well too I only have to change them once per 2-3 months at the rate of an hours playing a day and the odd gig here and there. Recommended
I consider myself a predominantly rhythm player. I was looking for strings that could pair nicely with my PRS (25" scale) and have a good tension for Drop D tuning. After trying various sets, I settle on this one. The 52 for the low D feels very good, and having more tension on the strings means I get tighter sounds.
I am lucky enough that I don't sweat much, and it doesn't corrode the strings fast. For this reason, the strings remain usable for a month/two with good sound. If you sweat a lot, or if your sweat is highly acidic, these might not be for you.
Overall I'm very happy with the performance of the strings, and having the 3-pack means I'm saving on each set, which is always nice! I would highly recommend these strings if you play in similar conditions to mine. If you mainly stay in standard E, I would go with 9-46!
These strings arrived very quickly and even thought I put them on the night before playing live, they retained their tune better than previous ones I tried. I also tried the light balanced of the same brand and also great too, I found them a bit too hard to bend. These are fantastic, light to the touch but feel great all around with each string the same tension. They sound great too, so definitely recommended
