D’Addarios are among the most popular strings on the market due to their brilliant and overtone-rich sound, their manufacturing quality and very good durability and can be found on the instruments of many well-known musicians.
The XT series combines several D’Addario developments. The strings are made from „High Carbon New York“steel; which contains a higher percentage of carbon and is therefore harder than the steel used in other strings. Due to the „Fusion Twist“-technology, in which the ballends are attached in a novel way, the strings are very tuning stable. By means of a gauzy coating,„the strings hold their fresh sound up to three times longer than strings of other brands, according to the manufacturer.
