  • Have any of you noticed problems with D'Addario strings lately

    I have gotten more then a few bad sets.

    Not particularly. I've been using them for 20 + years and once in a while I seem to run into a bad batch where several sets in a 10 set pack wil unwind at the ball end. Perhaps every other year, or third year perhaps. Haven't noticed it lately

      A lot of people like them and while I have never had duds, they die quite quickly for me.  Start really bright and get dull quick smart.  I found them durable though.

      I love my elixir nano's, can't go back.

    Honestly, yes.  I received a few free sets from them after I posted a thread about really like the new Cobalt Slinkies.  I put them on my guitars...and they do not sound like they normally do, and have died MUCH more quickly than usual.  Kinda strange...

    My Gear:
    2008 Fender American Standard Telecaster
    1998 Squire MIM Stratocaster
    Takamine acoustic
    Fender P-Bass
