Re-engineered to be stronger for enhanced output.

Bring your guitar to life with D'Addario's NYXL1046 Light Gauge Electric Guitar Strings. These innovative strings are built for players who demand maximum durability and performance. Featuring an exclusive high carbon steel core and reformulated nickel-plated wrap wire, NYXL strings provide peerless strength and tuning stability as well as accentuated midrange frequency response for a modern tone. D'Addario offers this cutting-edge string set that allows guitarists to push their playing to new heights.

The NYXL1046 strings are built around an exclusive high carbon steel core wire that provides 131% greater tuning stability compared to standard strings. This added strength and stability means less time tuning and more time playing. The steel core, along with an improved plain steel alloy, also allows for enhanced string bending and fretting without fear of breakage.

NYXL strings are designed to accentuate midrange frequencies from 1 kHz to 3.5 kHz, resulting in a tone perfectly suited for aggressive playing styles like rock, metal, and fusion. The reformulated nickel-plated wrap wire provides a subtle boost in output in these frequencies for a tone with serious punch and articulation. Combined with the stability of the steel core, NYXL strings are ideal for heavy whammy bar use and dropped or alternative tunings.

D'Addario has been making premium strings since 1680, and their dedication to quality is evident in the NYXL line. NYXL strings are proudly made in New York using state-of-the-art winding machinery and materials. The corrosion resistant packaging ensures strings stay fresh during storage. Like all D'Addario strings, NYXL also features color coded ball ends for quick and easy installation.

While optimized for high-performance playing, NYXL Light strings provide a versatile tone and feel suitable for all musical styles. The NYXL1046 set offers a balanced tension that is comfortable for most guitarists. For different tensions, choose from NYXL Super Light, Medium, or Heavy sets. Whatever your needs, D'Addario has you covered.
