About D'Addario Strings
The devil is always in the details, and sweating the details has been a family tradition at D'Addario for nine generations. Just look at something as simple as their plain steel guitar strings. They pay more to have their ball ends precision turned from solid brass stock. The edges have radii that prevent the ball end from cutting into wooden bridges or guitar tops.

Each string is twisted to perfection right down to the three neatly wrapped "lock twists." And those lock twists help keep their plain steel strings from unraveling or breaking prematurely. Each and every spool of precision drawn high carbon steel wire they use goes through three quality control tests before it hits the inventory shelves.

Pioneering innovative string design has been a D'Addario family tradition for nine generations. Most guitar players don't realize that the inner core wire in all D'Addario steel strings is made from carefully drawn, hexagonally shaped, high carbon steel wire. The six "edges" of the core wire bite into the softer wrap wire, securing it all along its length. The hexagon core is just one of the reasons D'Addario strings are "Better by Design." Hexagonally shaped high carbon steel core wire. Core wire edges dig in to the wrap wire to insure a tight bond between the core and the wrap wire.

"D'Addario XL strings .11-.49 gauge."

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
The sound is absolutely devastating for metal, and very tonesy for cleans. With cleans it rings out very smoothly and thr harmonics fly at you when distortion is on! This is more of a metal player strings due to the guage size, unless you're a jazz player. The sound has a LOT of classic bass tone with some mids slashing it's way through. I've recorded with them, sounded great! Live, also sounded GREAT! I'm using these throug a Jackson JS30 Kelly and a Kramer 2010 Vanguard, (not the 300$ one, the 700$ one.) The only thing that could make this product better would be to make it free. ;)
It has a colour coding system on the ball ends, to help you string quicker. The guages are perfectly chosen in this set.
Ease of Use
From standard tuning to B, the tension feels just great on these strings if you have a 25.5 inch scale or higher.
Perfect quality strings. Sound lasts for quite a while.
Yes it is, i've seen other strings for a few dollars more and have died quicker! These are a MUST own.
Manufacturer Support
Never needed support so these get a 10 as well!
The Wow Factor
These strings are everything I stated above, so another 10!
