I used to use D'Addario EXL165's exclusively for a good 3-4years, no other brand, until Dunlop Super Brights Nickels came out. I've used Dunlops for the past 12-18months and absolutely love them but I'd sort of forgot what the EXL165s sounded like.

Tonight, I've just installed a set of D'Addario EXL165's onto my Jazz out of curiosity to see how they compare up against Super Brights . Its a nonpareil... I'm surprised at how muted they sound compared the Super Brights Nickel. With my tone pot fully rolled off, its like I've got my tone pot rolled half way when i use Super Brights. They just dont haved that crystalline brightness like Dunlops

In future i wont be using any other brand but Dunlop Super Brights.
