Killer Tone and Epic String Life

D’Addario’s XT strings are among the longest lasting we’ve used here at Sweetwater thanks to their thin, durable coating. And we do mean thin — you won’t even know it’s there. These strings employ D’Addario’s proprietary high-carbon steel core and fusion twist technology, ensuring that they bend farther and stay in tune better — even under the duress of a live performance. XT strings boast nickel-plated windings with enhanced magnetic properties for increased output and juiced midrange. You’ll appreciate the presence and crunch that you get out of D’Addario’s XT electric guitar strings.

XT strings feature D’Addario’s thinnest and most durable coating yet. This nearly imperceptible coating protects every string from corrosion — even the plain steel strings — while maintaining the natural feel and tone of their popular NYXL series. D’Addario is the only string company who draws wire, coats it, then winds it — other companies apply the coating after the strings are made. If you’re dissatisfied with most coated electric guitar strings, give D’Addario XT strings an audition. You’ll be impressed.
