Play fearlessly with D’Addario’s NYXL Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings. NYXL’s feature a newly engineered, break-resistant, high-carbon steel core and plain steel alloy that gives you a whole new level of freedom, confidence and power in your playing. Compared to conventional strings, the NYXL strings can stand up to your fierce strumming, whammy bar dives and bends. In addition to unprecedented strength, NYXL electric guitar strings provide up to 131% greater tuning stability by utilizing a completely reinvented wire drawing process coupled with a revolutionary “fusion twist” process for the plain steels. Made in the USA for the highest quality and performance, these strings help you get in tune faster and stay in tune better. The reformulated nickel-plated string windings have greater magnetic properties resulting in higher output and enhanced mid-range frequency response in the 1 - 3.5 kHz range, which gives you more presence and crunch to cut through the mix. And thanks to the environmentally , corrosion resistant packaging, the strings in this 3-pack are always fresh. NYXL1149-3P offers an ideal combination of comfortable playability and ideal electric tone. The string gauges in this set include: Plain Steel .011, .014, .018, Nickel Wound .028, .038, .049.
