The Doyle Dykes set is unique in gauging. It bridges the gap between lights and extra lights with a unique .0115 first string while retaining the larger bass strings of a light set. As a fingerstylist, I find the treble strings offer much less resistance to my right hand, feeling more along the lines of a classical tension. Also, when playing "lead," the trebles are much easier to bend. The basses are the same as on a regular light set which means that you sacrifice none of the the meatiness in the bass. These strings are a great match for my playing style. They tend to hold their tone very long as well.

Here is a comparison of gauges between extra light set, the Doyle Dykes set and a light set:

: Ex. Lt | DD | Lt
1 .011 | .0115 | .012
2 .014 | .015 | .016
3 .022 | .022 | .024
4 .030 | .030 | .032
5 .038 | .042 | .042
6 .050 | .054 | .054
