I got 2 sets of the D’Addario NYXL strings back in May (you can read my post here) which were a standard 9 & 10 gauge and I’ve been using them ever since on my 6 string guitars.
Now that D’Addario have had a chance to gauge the impressions of the string buying public they have decided to extend the range with new sets, 08-38, 09-46, 11-49 and 10-52.
“A full line of singles has also been added to the NYXL line so musicians have the ability to create sets to their own specifications. Available are 50 NYXL wound strings in gauges ranging from .017 to .080 and 22 NYXL high-carbon plain steel strings in gauges ranging from. 007 to .026.”
“These strings have also been designed to bend farther and sing louder, and the reformulated nickel-plated steel alloy boosts amplitude in the 1 kHz to 3.5 kHz range, modernizing overall tone without ever losing that incredible nickel-plated steel feel that guitarists love. With 6% more magnetic permeability for higher output, NXYL electric guitar strings offer more punch, crunch, and bite.”
