One should at least try them once
LeonardS, 18.05.2021
When it comes to strings I am very cautious about the reviews in general as often it is a matter of taste, feeling and last but not least "habit".
My regular sets have been the D'Addario Nickel Bronze 12-52 BT or 12-53, which are in the Euro 11-12 range, while the XS is in the Euro 19 range.
Note, that I am not a fan of coated strings, but in this case I decided the try just one single set for fun sake and make sure my regular Nickel Bronze sets are still the best choice for me.
Having tries the XS strings, I must admit that I am NOT disappointed by this set, but pleasantly surprised and I am sure they will become strings I will most likely often consider in the future.
In short:
A very nice set of strings, they feel very good, tuning immediately very stable and they do sound very nice.
Try them at least once :-)

Tja - wie bewertet man Saiten...?
Die neuen Daddario kommen wie gewohnt in optisch ansprechender Verpackung daher. Die Saiten sind ordentlich verpackt und die einzelnen Stärken erkennt man ohne Probleme. Soweit - so unwichtig.
Klingen tun sie, wie neue Saiten auf einer Westerngitarre klingen müssen; Schön knackig und blechern.
Ich habe mir zwei Sätze geholt. Einen für die 6- und einen für die 7 Saiter Akoustic. Leider gibt es keinen (zumindest hat Thomann keinen) Satz für die 7 Saiter gehabt. Da musste ich mit einer .070er Saite aus nem "Pyramid Bariton" Satz aushelfen.
Zur Haltbarkeit kann ich (noch) nicht viel sagen. Zum einen habe ich die Saiten erst eine Woche drauf - zum anderen putze ich meine Satien nach jedem Spielen ab und schmiere sie mit GHS Fast Fret ein. Das erhöht die Haltbarkeit doch ungemein.

Was mir aber absolut positiv auffällt - und da stechen diese Saiten herfor - ist die Stimmstabilität nach dem aufziehen.
Ich habe die Satien gewechselt und ein(!) mal gedehnt. Seit dem ist nichts mehr passiert. Die Dinger halten das Tuning wie noch keine anderen Saiten.

Alles in allem - empfehlenswert! Die sind relativ teuer - aber das Geld (bis jetzt) wert.

Klasse und fühlt sich super an
Jörg176, 17.05.2021
sind definitiv nicht so glitschig wie die Elixir
hab sie jetzt 2 Tage drauf, gestern waren sie mir noch zu metallig und heute ist es etwas besser.
Bin sehr gespannt, wie lange sie halten, bisher hatte ich immer die schwarzen XT, die leider nicht lange gehalten haben. Nach ca 3 Wochen ende im Gelände...
Bin gespannt und werde das Gesamturteil mitteilen, bisher kann icj nur sagen:
sehr gute Saiten und es gibt derzeit keine alternative
Elixir sind mir zu glitschig und zu metallig im klang
Daddario lassen in der Regel die Klampfe natürlicher klingen
ich tausche immer die 012er durch eine 013er aus, was den Sound nach meinem Empfinden deutlich verbessert die 012er klirren mir zu sehr und man merkt den Austausch gar nicht
Schade, dass es die 013er nur in der unbeschichteten NYS..Variante gibt auch von Daddario, jedoch kann man keinen Unterschied zur angeblich beschichteten nicht wahrnehmen.
Ich glaube, dass generell bei allen beschichteten die letzten zwei Saiten nicht überzogen sind, das ist blanker Draht nicht gewickelt, was auch ausreichend ist

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
