i'm still using d'addario strings for my two 7 strings ( custom and schecter ) for my 6 string yamaha pacifica i'm using elixir planning to replace the strings for my new Max Rufo 6 string ng elixir. mas matagal buhay ng elixirs kesa d'addario IMHO.

mga 2 years na ako naka D'addario 85/15

nakasanayan ko na din, pero namimiss ko parin elixir

di ko nga lang afford hehe

di ko naman napuputol yung d'addario so feeling ko high quality din naman siya like elixirs
used for 30 minutes noodling everyday
tapos mga 8 hours sa weekends

I've been switching back and forth between elixirs and daddarios. Daddarios feel and sound better to me but they just rust and die sooner :(

depende siguro sa storage ng guitar mo paps. ung sakin na Daddario tumatagal naman.

I am a long time user of D'Addario, Ernie Ball, Roto Sound, and etc., and I only had a chance to try Elixirs 10-52 for dropped C tuning 2 months ago and I was blown away.

The hype is real!  :-o

2 months and still running, the strings still sound fresh and bright/twangy/djenty(or whatever you call it).  :-D It still has no signs of rust or roughness especially on the higher strings.
They say Elixir strings have flakes on the strings on the picking part when it goes on, yes it is, but it doesn't bother me, I think that's the coating/treatment applied by Elixir.

Overall, Elixir is great investment for your guitars, for twice the price but lasts 3-4x than other brands, it's definitely worth it.

Still pyramids for the simple reason that they bend better ... for better hiyaw (heh heh) and that they sound bigger ... even bigger than elixirs.

Of course, elixirs will last longer in terms of brightness.  But I am biased against bright strings.  So take my opinion with a grain of salt.
