Okay, there you have it….. Which guitar strings does Richie Sambora use? Really? Yup… I just wondered if Richie would have any preference in strings, just like I do. Typically, I use the standard Fender .009 string set. Nothing fancy, just the Fender® Super 250’s Nickel-Plated Steel (NPS) strings .009.
Now, back to Richie. I recently learned that Richie has endorsed a guitar string line at D’addario Strings. There are three types of strings Richie endorsed. I have not yet figured out which gauges, though.
XP15 Coated Phosphor Bronze, Extra Light, 10-47 (details here) – Price: approximately €12,- per set
EXP38 Coated Phosphor Bronze, 12-String, Light, 10-47 (details here) – Price: approximately €21,- per set
EXL110 Nickel Wound, Regular Light, 10-46 (details here) – Price: approximately €5,- per set – Obviously the cheaper set.
I honestly admit that I have not yet tried these strings….. yet…. But I definitely will try the XP15 set and see what these do.
