Mix, match, replace!  This is a D'Addario XS coated single guitar string.

Exactly the same as in the full sets but giving you the flexibility to mix up your gauges or replace a tired string.  XS wound strings offer the maximum achievable tone life from a guitar string using D'Addario’s class-leading NY steel core and premium nickel-plated steel wrap wire which is then fully coated with their own dedicated coating.  These strings provide a pronounced midrange and bite, with rich harmonics with a near impervious shield which lasts, and lasts!  Pair with XT treated plain steel strings for the ultimate electric guitar strings set!

What D'Addario says:
“XS strings feature an ultra-thin and durable film coating that completely protects the wound strings while the plain steel strings receive our proprietary XT treatment, so all the strings in the set are protected from life-killing corrosion and contaminant build-up. The coating is so thin that strings ring out the with the clarity and projection similar to an uncoated string. Our NY Steel high-carbon cores in the wound strings and Fusion Twist technology on all plain steel strings ensures unmatched tuning stability and increased break strength. All of this with strings that have a smooth feel and don’t feel greasy or visibly fray like the leading film coated string.

How does XS differ from XT?
“The X-Series is comprised of two distinct lines... XT utilises a treated wrap wire, resulting in a natural feel, and XS utilises a film coating that results in a smooth feel.  XT offers extended life and XS delivers maximum life.

What is the construction of XS?
“XS Electric consists of NY Steel high-carbon plain steels and core wire, wrapped with premium reformulated nickel-plated steel giving players enhanced midrange bite and crunch, increased projection, consistent tuning stability and incomparable break strength. XS Electric provides higher output, rich harmonics and superior sustain.”
