XS is breathing new life into coated strings. With its ultra-thin film coating on every wound string and unique polymer treatment on the plain steels, XS offers the highest level of protection for maximum life with an uncommonly smooth feel. XS is the most innovative string ever created.
D'Addario's in-house wire drawing machines produce musical instrument wire to our exact specifications. Control over materials, equipment, and quality allows us to deliver high performance products.
Let that iconic D'Addario tone ring out. With XS, harmonic overtones remain full and bright after many hours of playing.
Spend less time tuning and more time playing. Torture tests prove that fusion twist plain steels stay in tune better than standard strings.
"Several years ago, I posed a simple question to our team of engineers and
product designers: Can D'Addario create the world's greatest coated string, bar none?
I am proud to say our team rose to every one of these incredible challenges (and a host of others) and we're launching the new XS coated string."
