How can I extend the life of my strings?

There are many factors that can affect the lifespan of your strings. Here are some tips to help extend the life of your strings:

1. Wipe down your strings after each use.

2. Try D'Addario X-Series strings! Our two X Series options each use a distinct method to extend lifespan, while preserving the tone and feel of uncoated strings.

XT combines high carbon steel cores with an advanced corrosion resistance treatment added over the string to enhance string longevity. XS makes use of a special film and innovative application process, allowing the string to last longer than any string we've produced before.

3. Try these maintenance and care products to prolong string life and performance.

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
