D’Addario is the world’s largest strings manufacturer, supplying strings globally for almost any stringed instrument (we’ve got them all!) including electric & acoustic guitar, bass, classical guitar, mandolin, banjo, violin, double bass… the list goes on!

D’Addario-engineered NY Steel is one of the brand’s most recent innovations providing unparalleled strength and longevity spanning across the strings range from Nickel Bronze, NYXL, XS, and even folk instrument strings.

D’Addario NYXL is the heady combination of NY Steel and reformulated nickel-plated steel wrap wire making this the best range of electric guitar strings available.

D’Addario’s original treated strings range for longevity was EXP which has now been superseded by XT. This range of electric, acoustic and classical guitar, bass, banjo, and mandolin strings features a thin, hydrophobic coating protecting every string in the set from corrosion. We stock single strings from this range too!

The latest addition to D’Addario’s X-Series acoustic and electric guitar strings range is the XS. This proprietary coating and treatment on all strings in the set makes them arguably the most advanced guitar strings on the planet. Utilising the strength of NY Steel and reformulated nickel-steel wrap wire (or phosphor bronze for acoustic) which is completely coated means these strings can last longer, play harder, and sound better for longer than any other guitar strings.

D'Addario Chromes 45-100 Stainless Steel Flatwound Bass Guitar Strings, Short Scale [ECB81S]

D’Addarios have always been my favourite strings. Perfect length for a MIM Mustang (not string through) and a great flat wound tone. Expensive, but you get what you pay for.
