Daddario EXL117
Yanbul, 08.03.2014
Hi!

I´ve recently discovered these strings for me. I was in the middle of recording process and I needed some fresh strings. I found one set at home and bought a couple of them at a local guitar store. Normally I used to play on Rotosound MA11 sig. set. So I will be comparing them a little.

I play an Ibanez RG2020x tunned in drop c. Over the years I figured out the perfect set for me - it was Rotosound MA11 (11-59), but I ran out of them and needed some fresh strings quickly, so I picked up the daddarios. Although the sixth string is a .56 gauge, the tension is quite nice and the strings feel nice. The quality is nice as well and I can play them for about 1-2 weeks, depending on the playing time. The sound is pretty bright and tight, provoking me to play djent and ola-style chugga-chugga all the time haha :D But to be honest the .59 rotosound string sounds more beefier. Generally the rotos sound a bit brighter and nastier then the daddarios. You should concider this when choosing the strings for your particular guitar. Also the .11 roto string has a little more tension then the daddario one, dunno why lol. The Daddarios are kinda easier to bend as well.

All in all, the daddarios exl117 are pretty good strings for standard D/Drop C tuning. I would suggest you to try the Rotos MA11 though.

My favourite strings
Matthiman, 24.03.2020
I play in C sharp tuning. These strings are perfect for that. You'll get at decent tension on the bass string but still a light top to do nice bends and smooth solos. I got these initially because some stringsets come with g-strings that seem to be to thick, which resulted in sharp notes all over the neck. As I didn't want to file my nut, I just got these...

Love them!!!
Isaac Campos, 05.03.2019
Just that...
I find in them anything I need, tone and definition-wise, and I just couldn't be happier with their quality!!!
I like to play around with different tunings, and thet offer a wide range of gauges. Also, the fact that a huge range of singles of any gauge are available to customize sets, is brilliant!!!
From time to time I try other brands, and many are OK, but is just I have found my feel and tone with D'Addario, and I'm always going back to using them.
It's a matter of taste, as always when sound is involved.
For me they're PERFECT, I love them!!!

Most balanced tension
cred, 26.09.2020
Best set on the market for moderate down tuning. The tension is almost perfectly balanced and progressive from the thickest to the thinnest gauge, as far as I know no other set comes so close. I used those for maybe a decade.

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