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.
How do I restring my guitar?
Check out the videos to learn the restringing process for electric, acoustic, classical, bass, and other instruments. You will also find videos on restringing, tuning, humidification, and general maintenance.
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."
