In the battle for tone, there’s one topic that seems to arise more and more often, and that is, what strings are we using? The team at D’Addario has been at the forefront of string design and innovation for longer than any of us have been playing guitar. In fact, if you gather a handful of your favorite guitar accessories and take a look, they probably have a D’Addario stamp on them somewhere. One of the latest and greatest from their string factory is the NYXL line. These are high output, incredibly durable and awesome sounding strings. We had Kyle from D’Addario in our Sam Ash Studio to tell us a bit more. Let’s check it out!
