Pro-Arte basses are wound using silver-plated copper on a multi-filament nylon core for consistent, warm-yet-projecting tone.
- D'Addario NYL019W is a .019 gauge silver-plated copper wound single string
- An ideal replacement string for Pro-Arte series silver-plated sets or for custom gauge set construction
- Warm, projecting tone
- Made in the U.S.A. for the highest quality and performance
Construction is another key component of string performance. D'Addario offers a variety of construction methods to help you achieve your perfect tone and feel:
Round WoundÂ â€“ The most popular and universal construction delivers that traditional textured feel most players are familiar and comfortable with.Â
Lightly PolishedÂ - We start with a finished round wound string then precisely flatten the tops of the windings through our unique polishing process. The result is strings with a smoother feel and reduced finger noise with the flexibility and tension of a round wound string. Great for recording!
ProArte Laser Sorted NylonÂ â€“ Each ProArte treble string is sorted by a sophisticated computer-controlled laser machine which performs 200 diameter/tension measurements, insuring true sounding, precisely intonating trebles, set after set.
Classics Rectified NylonÂ â€“ Each treble string is ground using our exclusive centerless grinding technique. Roundness and dimension control are unsurpassed ensuring absolutely perfect intonation.
String materials can have a dramatic impact on your tone, feel and string life. Here is a quick look at D'Addarioâ€™s diverse selection of classical basses and trebles:
80/20 BronzeÂ - Composed of 80% copper and 20% zinc, commonly referred to as brass, preferred by some players for its brilliance and projection.
Silver-plated CopperÂ â€“ Warm, acoustically rich copper which is plated with ultra-smooth silver for the ideal classical guitar tone. D'Addarioâ€™s most popular classical string material.
Multifilament Nylon CoreÂ â€“ Nylon effectively replicates the sound of silk and gut strings with better durability and consistency.
Multifilament Composite CoreÂ â€“ D'Addario exclusive high-tech core material dramatically improves string life, tuning consistency and possesses a bold, more dynamic response.
Clear NylonÂ â€“ The traditional standard for classical strings. Balance of warmth, brightness and projection with an ultra-smooth surface preferred by many professionals for its comfortable nail contact.
Black NylonÂ â€“ A warmer, mellower tone than clear nylon and a popular choice for folk and some classical guitars.Â
TitaniumÂ â€“ A contemporary treble material with attractive purple hue, smooth feel and brighter tone than traditional nylon. A popular choice for darker sounding instruments or when paired with our Composite or EXP basses.Â
CompositeÂ â€“ Monofilament composite material delivers increased brightness and projection for 3rd/G strings. Provides more balanced volume transition between basses and trebles.
