Mark Knopfler’s D’Addario EJ21 Guitar Strings

Mark has been using these guitar strings on his Danelectro 59 DC during the Down the Road Wherever tour in 2019. He keeps the Danelectro tuned to open C, and uses it for slide.

All electric guitars are strung with D’Addario XL110s, except for one Strat, which is strung with D’Addario XL115, and the Danelectro, which is strung with D’Addario EJ21.
