D'Addario says this is the 'most technologically advanced string ever created' - a bold statement...  but, when you play these you'll understand what they're talking about!

XT is an amalgamation of string technologies including a microscopically thin hydrophobic treatment on all strings, high carbon NY steel core, and fusion twist ball end fastening, resulting in a string that lasts 3x longer than a regular set while maintaining the tone and feel of a brand new standard set.  This intense combination of high-carbon NY steel core wire with the extended lifespan treatment across the full set boasts class-leading break resistance, pitch stability, and long-lasting performance.

XT strings are designed both for professional players who need to ready to play at any minute, demanding instant performance; and also players who just want to play and don't want the fuss of changing strings.

Features:

  • extended life-span treatment that preserves the natural tone and feel of newly-made strings
  • made with high carbon steel found in NYXL and Nickel Bronze for enhanced break-resistance and tuning stability
  • thin, hydrophobic coating protects every string in the set from the corrosive effects of sweat & humidity

Are these strings the correct length for my bass?

We insist that players use the measurement of ball-end (anchor) to top nut of their current set of strings.  This measurement is more accurate than scale length as it takes into account through-body stringing, and more complex or alternative bridges.  In many cases the set of strings required will be longer than the bass’s stated scale length!  Use these references:

If ball-end-to-nut length is:

Up to 32” choose Short Scale

32”-34” choose Medium Scale

34”-36” choose Long Scale

36”-38” choose Extra/Super Long Scale

If you have a bass where you cannot see the ball-end i.e. a thru-body bass, you will have to measure your string once it has been removed. Before removing the string be sure to make a mark on the string with a permanent marker just behind the nut so you know where to measure to. Then once you’ve taken it off the bass, you can measure from the ball-end to the mark you made on the string.
