THE D'ADDARIO TONE LIVES ON IN EVERY STRING

"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."


- JIM D'ADDARIO, Chairman of the Board/Chief Innovation Officer of D'Addario
