Excellent feel and sound
Vorath, 07.06.2021
I'm using these in drop C tuning and they feel great.
Nice bright sound and they are loud even acoustically.

They feel slightly smoother that non coated strings but i find that pleasant, especially on the higher, non-wound string.

No way yet to see how long the coating will last but i can say that they maintain the sound much better than any other set of non coated i ever used.

Good but dont last long
Primzi, 20.07.2020
They sound great at the start, but only the last three strings are coated, so if you play a lot the first three will rust pretty fast.

Im going back to Elixir.

Perfect for the drop D tuning

Strings are perfect for the drop D tuning and according to its rivals Daddario makes it better to compare.

Überraschend gut!
Frankior, 06.12.2019
Mit "überraschend" meine ich nicht, dass ich von Daddario als Hersteller weniger erwartet hätte. Ich spiele immerhin seit bestimmt einem Jahrzehnt zu 90% deren Saiten. Allerdings gehöre ich in die vielleicht schlimmste Kategorie von Gitarristen:

Ich schlage sehr hart an und schwitze dabei sehr viel. ;-)

Normalerweise bin ich etwas paranoid und ziehe gerade vor Shows lieber einmal mehr als einmal weniger neue Saiten auf, um wirklich safe zu sein. Die XTEs wollte ich aber mal so richtig leichtsinnig an der Front testen. Vor einem Weekender zog ich den Satz auf, spielte sie kurz ein und ab ins Gigbag und ins Auto. Ich habe zwei Shows mit dem gleichen Satz durchgespielt, zwischen den Shows tatsächlich keine weitere Pflege der Saiten wahrgenommen und die Gitarre sogar erst ein paar Tage nach Heimkehr überhaupt wieder aus dem Gigbag geholt. Was auf den Saiten war, hatte also gut Zeit, IN die Saiten zu gelangen. ;-)

Die Überraschung stellte sich dann ein, als ich also das erste Mal nach den zwei Shows die Klampfe in die Hand nahm und die Saiten noch immer klangen, wie am ersten Tag, kaum Abnutzung sichtbar war und ich es mir selbst geglaubt hätte, dass das ein gerade aufgezogener, neuer Satz sei.

Klanglich kann ich auch nichts negatives finden. Manchen Saiten merkt man ja ihre Beschichtung auch im Sound etwas an. Hier klingt es einfach nur gewohnt gut. Ich werde vorerst bei diesen Saiten bleiben. Klare Empfehlung für Leute, die Daddarios Saiten mögen und vielleicht auch einen etwas aggressiveren Handschweiß mitbringen, wie ich!

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