I first heard about these strings reading a guitar interview with the great session guitarist Reggie Young. For those of you who don't know who he is check him out! He was a R&B/Rock N Roll playing in the late 50's then became one of the greatest 60's soul & Pop guitarists then through the 70's till today has been the premier country player. He said he liked 10's and found 9's too heavy so these are the perfect compromise. if like me you feel this way about your strings then these are definitely worth a try. As you can see from other reviews these may well become your go to strings from now on. Great sounding, great price and great fast service yet again from Thomann! I'll be back for more thanks you...
I've used D'Addario XL strings for over 20 years, and have never had a bad set. They're long lasting, sound good and are well made. I also like the environmentally thoughtful packaging.
I first tried the EXL120+ strings 5 years ago. At the time I was playing Ibanez guitars with locking tremolo bridges, and I didn't get along with these strings at all. I thought they'd be the ideal compromise between 9's and 10's, but on those guitars I couldn't get them to intonate correctly, and the tuning stability was not perfect. I never had any issues with 9's or 10's.
Fast-forward to this year. I bought a new guitar (a Suhr S4) with a Gotoh 510 tremolo and locking tuners. On this guitar, 10's felt too stiff, but 9's were too slinky. So I thought I'd try the EXL120+ again, and on this guitar they are perfect. Intonation is easy, tuning stability is amazing, and they just suit the guitar. Unfortunately this gauge is not available here in Hong Kong, so I always order a few sets when I'm placing an order with Thomann. I hardly ever break strings, and these last me a long time, so they're excellent value.
In conclusion, these are probably not the perfect string for everyone. But try a set - you may find they are perfect for you. I don't use them on every guitar (there are other D'Addario XL sets for those) but on my Suhr, this is the perfect set.
