Farmingdale. The factory is somewhere near Wellwood and Conklin near Pinelawn Cemetary.

 

The funny thing for me is, I used these strings long before I moved to NY. I never knew they were based in LI.

Thats cool. My little brother in 3rd grade(I live in hicksville) is friends with some kid with the last name D'Addario and apparently he plays guitar. I might hafta investigate this situation. The only time kids usually start that young is if their parents are musicians, or string makers. :D

He could very well be a D'Addario heir.

 

BTW, I work in Bethpage so I'm not too far from Hicksville (I think we've been through this before).

I've tried 'em all - no real favorites. I don't buy all the hype. I doubt there a more than a very few actual manufacturers of strings, and believe everyone's labels go on mostly the same products.
Never a DUH! moment! Well, almost never. OK, OK! Sometimes never!

What I don't get into is the uber-expensive, stainless steel, fancy coated type of crap.

 

Just give me a $3.00 pack of D'Addarios and I'm happy.

Stick with your regular slinkys, or whatever feels right to you and be done with it. It's not really that important in the big picture. Just put on some fresh strings every so often, keep practicing, repeat. S.

Yeah, I know. I wasnt thinkin of changin types or anything. I love the EB's. Just wonderin what everyone else uses.

I used to use those, but found the quality control lacking.....

 

also, shipping was becoming cost prohibitive...

I keep coming back to Ernie Ball Light Top Heavy Bottoms (10 - 52), having tried lots. I like DR Pure Blues, but have to get them via internet.

 

I just don't get on with D'Addarios - no idea why.

Cool! I'll get some EXL 120s next time I'm ready.

 

Actually, I'm thinking of trying some XL 110s on my Strat as an experiment to hear how they sound.

 

I don't think I'll go the 10s route with the LP. I like the 9s just fine on that.

Last set of strings i put on my electric were DR Handmade Dimebag sig's..... But they are way too aggressive sounding. I have a set of DR Handmade Pure Blues or something or other to put on them next but due to budget cuts from congress (i.e. Karen) im waiting till these suckers break off first... Which I think is gonna be a long time.. as they sell them on the fact you can abuse the bejillickers out of them.
