D'Addario EXL125 Super Light Top/Regular Bottom Electric Guitar Strings
Easy bending without going out of tune.
A broader blend of string gauge diameters, D'Addario's EXL125's have super light 1st, 2nd, and 3rd strings; with regular gauge bass strings, for extended capabilities. They have the power and drive of "regulars", but the lighter upper strings are made to shred. EXL125's 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, using computer controlled winding machines to monitor wrap speed and tension. The result is a string with precise intonation and amazing consistency, set after set. Though round wound, D'Addario EXL125's have a smooth feel, which is easy on the fingers and frets. This super light top gauge electric guitar string set is easy to bend for blues and rock, so you can shred until the cows come home. They always deliver a full tone, form deep basses and warm mids to very bright, ringing trebles. D'Addario EXL125 guitar strings come in an environmentally friendly, sealed inner package to keep them fresh.
