D’Addario XS… ELECTRIC!

They are here! Yes, it’s taken a little while but D’Addario has just taken coated electric guitar strings to the next level. Are these the new King of electric guitar strings?

XS 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. Furthermore, the plain strings are also polymer treated to complete the formula. This heady combination creates a louder set of strings that have pronounced midrange and bite, with rich harmonics with a near impervious shield which lasts, and lasts, and lasts, and lasts… !

Let me list the facts:

  • all six strings are coated
  • class-leading strength of NY Steel core and plain strings
  • reformulated nickel-plated steel wrap wire
  • Fusion Twist ball-end for unparalleled tuning-stability
  • best in class durability
  • fast, smooth, and soft feel

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.”

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.
