    I'm taking in my Custom 24 to get a proper setup done soon. How are the PRS Sig Strings vs say NYXL's?. I do not live close to a place to get strings. I will be driving quite a ways to get the setup done. So, I'll be ordering the strings online.

    Thanks

    They are almost identical. I use both. I love both. They are both made by D’Addario. Even the wetsuit like feel of the packaging is the same. I’ve never touched a wetsuit, but that’s what I think it would feel like.

    Wetsuits don't feel anywhere near as cool as those packages.

    If you think those packages feel cool, you should feel...I’m sorry, what was I saying?

    I've used D'Addarios for years. Someone at a local shop suggested NYXL's, so I tried them. I did not notice that much of a difference. I think there's some "snake oil" going on. IMO, don't spend lots of money on strings.

    The PRS branded strings are a couple of dollars less per set than the NYXLs.

    The only downside, for me, is that I like 9-46 gauge.

    PRS has 9-42, 10-46, or 9.5-44. I get the 9.5-44

    I tried the new DGT strings for my...DGT. I think I like the old DGT signature strings, but they don't make them anymore. I hunted some sets down from a few places that still had some.

    That said, NYXL are fine too. I use the 10s for my Gibson scale length guitars.

    Thanks everyone for the info. I think I'll try the 9.5 to 44 PRS Sigs.

    And I think standard D'Addario are even cheaper, yet made at the same factory.

    I kinda think that's the case with most "high end" strings.
