I’ve been using D’Addario EXL 110 .10-.46 for years on my guitars.Â I’ve thought about changing gauges, but the thought isn’t strong enough to move away from that current gauge. Back in the day I use to go to my local guitar store for strings.. but the music stores around here totally over charge for strings and picks. I absolutely hate it. I started buying my packs on Musician’s Friend to save a few bucks. Then I moved up to the 10 pack D’Addario EXL 110 to save just a little more.
When I was at Amazon looking at 10 pack prices I was surprised that D’Addario now offers a bulk box solution! The D’Addario EXL 110 bulk price is $69.05. So let’s do some math.
Standard single pack (MF price) is $3.99 / pack
Moving up to the 10 pack ($36.99) it breaks down to $3.69 / pack (saving .30 cents per pack for a total of $3.00 if you bought 10 individual packs).
Now, if you move up to the bulk solution which has enough for 25 packs, the break down is this. Bulk price is $69.05 divided by 25 comes down to $2.76 / pack. That’s a $1.23 savings from the single pack price of $3.99. So $1.23 * 25 would come to a total savings of $30.75 if you go with the bulk solution. I can think of plenty of things to spend $30.75 on instead of strings.
I ordered my box yesterday. Can’t wait for re-string guitar day this week!
