Ukulele Materials

String materials can have a dramatic impact on your tone, feel and string life. Here is a quick look at D’Addario’s diverse selection of Ukulele strings:

Clear Nylon – The traditional standard for Ukulele strings. Balance of warmth, brightness and projection with an ultra-smooth surface.

ProArte Laser Sorted Nylon – Each ProArte treble string is sorted by a sophisticated computer-controlled laser machine which performs diameter/tension checks, insuring true sounding, precisely intonating strings.

Black Nylon – A warmer, mellower tone than clear nylon and a popular choice for traditional Hawaiian Ukulele.

Nyltech - Developed in cooperation with Aquila, an exclusive combination of materials designed to deliver an optimal combination of warm gut-like, yet punchy tone and comfortable playability.

Titanium – A contemporary treble material with attractive purple hue, smooth feel, brighter tone and increased projection. 

What Artists Are Saying
The D’Addario Difference

What makes one string company different from another? Sometimes it’s hard to put your finger on it, but when you play a great string, you just know it’s great. On the surface it might not be evident how or why it’s great… it just is. As they say “the devil is in the details” and the details of the art and science of string making are the key to the D’Addario difference.

It all starts with our exclusively engineered and built string winding machines. There is literally nothing like a D’Addario string machine. The combination of the most advanced computer-controlled winding technology, stringent incoming wire inspection and “quality at the source” manufacturing delivers unmatched consistency, string after string. Additionally, our passion for and commitment to environmentally responsible packaging and raw materials fuels our continued innovation in this area. Last but not least, every D’Addario string is made in the U.S.A. in our Farmingdale, NY facility, ensuring the highest quality and performance.

Through passionate hard work, unrelenting innovation and thanks to you, our loyal customer, D’Addario is the world’s largest string maker, but our undying commitment to continuous improvement ensures we’ll always be there… listening, creating and working to improve the lives of musicians, one string at a time.
