The facts from D'Addario:

10 times thinner than a human hair?? ...and other facts about D'Addario XS.

Ultra Thin Coating
D'Addario XS features a unique material which is ten times thinner than a human hair. This, alongside a tremendous leap forward in coating technology, allows the string windings to be completely protected from contaminants providing maximum life with a smooth feel.

All Six Strings Protected
The plain steel strings on XS are treated with a unique polymer coating (originally developed for the XT range of strings) meaning all six strings are protected.

NY Strong
XS features D'Addario's exclusive NY Steel core wire and plain strings for increased break resistance and unmatched tuning stability. Using advanced machines and processes at their Farmingdale wire facility, D'Addario premium quality, high carbon steel makes XS truly NY Strong.

Unmatched Tuning Stability
NY Steel and the Fusion Twist feature locks in the plain steel strings, preventing slippage and breakage at the ball end.

Custom Made Wire

Six Sides of Stability
