User Review

Ideal for the drop C - Reviews D'Addario XL Nickel Wound Electric

# How long have you use it?
About 4 years, at a rate of 6 games per year.

# What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Plus:
- Pulling, D'Addario was one of the first to offer this drawing
- Sustainability: 1:30 to 2 months due to play per day (for cons, I have hands that are more likely to be dry than moist)
- The color system to navigate between 6 strings
- Attractive price
- A new game does not sound too "twang-twang" as with Ernie Ball

The least:
- Poorly distributed: hard to find without a purchase online.

# Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes. The Ernie Ball (yuck, never understood the popularity of this brand), DR (blah, did not leave me a great memory and super expensive), the Rotosound.

# How would you rate the quality / price?
Pretty good. I'm two months with a game, it's mostly non-threaded strings that oxidize quickly.

# With experience, you do again this choice?
Yes.
Note that the price has dropped slightly in recent years. It went from € 6 20-5 € 90.
