D'Addario EXL115W 11-49 Electric Guitar Strings
Wound 3rd String, Jazz-Blues-Rock
Sweeten up your Jazz with D'Addario's? EXL115W's, featuring a wound third string. As with all EXL's, they feature nickel plated steel round wrap over a hex core, to provide excellent magnetic characteristics for single coil and dual coil pickups. Nickel plated steel wire is precision wound over steel hex cores, to create an exceptional electric guitar string with precise intonation and unmatched consistency, set after set. EXL115W's feel smooth and are easy on the fingers and frets. They give you a firmer feel and response, yet it is still easy to bend for blues and rock. The wound third string fills out the blend for rhythm and jazz, and extends the versatility of this set.
Diameters: .011 .014 .021 .028w .038 .049 inches.
Total Set Tension: 121.5 pounds.
New Package: D'Addario now packages their strings with less packaging material, resulting in less waste and a lesser impact on the environment. They did not change the quality of their strings, and still put the same high quality EXL115W strings into the new packages. It's part of a "lean manufacturing" philosophy, which helps keep the cost of D"Addario strings from following the upward trend of raw materials, including packaging materials. It just makes good sense for us all.
