My favourite Strings
RossWhite, 20.07.2017
I use the these on my Fender Strat and PRS and the 110's on my Les Pauls. I have tried most makes of strings: Ernie Ball, Fender etc... I settled on D'addario years ago. I have never had a D'addario faulty string. Maybe I am lucky.

I have a Fender Deluxe Strat and it came with Fender strings. I tried the Fender Bullits, as they were the recommended strings for the guitar. As soon as the strings needed changing again, I went back to D'addario's. Apart from being cheaper, they definitely have a better bell tone to them and although it may be psychological, I prefer the 'feel' of them.

I love the sound of these, they are reasonably priced, especially from Thomann. A quick piece of advice: Always compare the price of multi packs. These packs of 3 work out at ¤4.80 a set. The packs of 10 work out at ¤4.90 a set. These EXL120-3D are the best value!

If you have never tried them, give them a go. I will be very surprised if you don't stick with them. I doubt I will ever use anything else on my electric guitars.

Can't beat Daddario
Vertically compliant, 19.12.2020
When it comes to roundwound strings, Daddarios are my go-tos. They sound great, they last a long time and the prices are just great. I've never had any issues with poor quality using them.

The only thing I'm not crazy about is the colored ends on the strings, but I can live with that and it's not like you normally even see them. I'd also like to see the more rare sets (e.g. sets with a wound G) available as a 10-pack.

Best strings you can get
Yd44, 04.04.2021
I've tried nearly all the strings out there and these are by FAR the best. Very great bright tone. Colour coded string ball ends is a great feature not many people mention, it makes string changes way quicker not having to look at the pack after every string once you learn the colours. Bright tone lasts For around two weeks for me [With very heavy Floyd Rose usage to add] and I kill EB strings in a day, Used them for 3 years now and only broke 1 high E string. I cant think of anything I don't like about these strings apart from maybe that the wound strings are bare at the end for the last inch or so which makes Floyd string changes a bit annoying. Nonetheless I wont use any other string Brand, 5/5.

Always have a pack of these laying around
Mick Jansen, 23.01.2019
Ever since I played the electric guitar, I have used the same particular set of strings through the years: The Daddario EXL120's. It may be the most basic set of 9's, but it works for me and it has done so for almost ten years! Never had problems with these strings.
I can play them with ease, but the strings do not sound tinny and they do quite well in the bass frequencies. They last quite long, I have broken just one or two strings in all these years. You don't need to change them every month or so. They will stay 'fresh' for longer than that.
The strings also do great on floating bridge systems too. With all the stress of the vibratos with the whammy bar, these strings don't seem to care.
Since I have multiple guitars, it is only convenient to buy a pack of three sets. I have used these strings for almost ten years and I'm planning on using them for the next ten years as well!
