Choose Your 1st String
Welcome to the Strings Direct D'Addario NYXL custom gauge set builder. Here you’ll have the opportunity to create your very own custom gauge NYXL set, completely tailored to the needs of you and your guitar.
The first decision you need to make is to choose the gauge for your 1st string. This will be the thinnest string in your set and if your guitar is in standard tuning, it will be tuned to ‘E’.
NYXL plain steel single strings are available from as thin as a .007 gauge but you can of course choose whichever gauge you like. They are also available in half gauges e.g. .0085, .0095, .0105 etc. and these are great in helping to make the transition up to a heavier gauge a little easier.
Simply make your selection from our range below or alternatively you can use the ‘STRING GAUGE’ filter down the left hand side of the screen to narrow down your search.
