D'Addario NYXL1052 Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings, Light Top / Heavy Bottom, 10-52
NYXL1052 is a hybrid set, combining the high strings from an regular light set (.010) with heavier low strings (.052). This combination delivers powerful low end for heavy chording and flexible plain steel strings for bending.
D'Addario NYXL guitar strings will bend further, sing louder, and stay in tune better than any string you?ve played before. Envisioned, perfected, and manufactured by D'Addario in New York, this newly engineered, break-resistant, high-carbon steel core and plain steel alloy delivers a whole new level of freedom, confidence, and power. NYXL’s provide more strength and up to 131% greater tuning stability by utilizing a completely reinvented wire drawing process coupled with a revolutionary ‘fusion twist’ process for the plain steels. The reformulated nickel plated string windings have greater magnetic properties resulting in higher output and enhanced mid-range frequency response for more presence and crunch.

“Settle right into pitch and have such a noticeable clear tone, wow!!” - Korel Tunador (Goo Goo Dolls, Katy Perry)
“These things are legit…have a brighter, chimier sound to them…definitely seem a little louder. They REALLY DO stay in tune much better than anything I’ve used before, and I cannot emphasize this enough.” - Chris, Hollywood, CA
“Wow!… after a long solo the tuning is perfect and they last twice as long. Way to go, D'Addario!” - Pat Metheny
All they claim to be. I’ve never had a set of strings stay in tune over the course of 3-45 minute sets but these did….Not only that they were still completely in tune the next morning when I played it. Not only do they stay in tune but 3 weeks later they still sound crisp & new. Most highly recommended! - Michael, Placerville, CA
“The best electric string I have come across. They not only hold up to all of my onstage brutality, but they are louder and more articulate” - Richard Fortus (Guns and Roses)
“They feel better, sound brighter, and last longer.” - Alex Skolnick
I can tune my guitar and play it for a couple hours and still not have it go out of tune. Even if I’m using the tremolo bar and bending strings, these things stay in tune. These are miracle strings in my mind. Most importantly, they sound GREAT! - Wilhelmina Z.
I have been using these since i beta tested them. They play and sound great… and last a long time!!! - Earl Slick
