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

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D’Addario’s original treated strings range for longevity was EXP which has now been superseded by XT.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.
