D'Addario XL Electric Guitar strings are world-renowned as "The Player's Choice" amongst guitar players of all genres and styles. XL strings are wound with nickelplated steel and are known for their distinctive bright tone and excellent intonation.

D'addario pays more to have their ball ends precision turned from solid brass stock. The edges have radii that prevent the ball end from cutting into wooden bridges or guitar tops. Each string is twisted to perfection right down to the three neatly wrapped "lock twists." And those lock twists help keep their plain steel strings from unraveling or breaking prematurely. Each and every spool of precision drawn high carbon steel wire D'addario uses goes through three quality control tests before it becomes a set of D'addario strings. Pioneering innovative string design has been a D'Addario family tradition for nine generations. Most guitar players don't realize that the inner core wire in ALL D'Addario steel strings is made from carefully drawn, hexagonally shaped, high carbon steel wire. The six "edges" of the core wire bite into the softer wrap wire, securing it all along its length. Environmental Package.
Gauges: .010; .013; .017; .030; .042; .052

Things You Will Get:

  • Guitar String Set

Bought them twice and will again


Perfect range of gauges for me! I visit drop D quite often and the low string is well suited for not getting too flobby when I drop it, which a notorious issue I deal with on a lighter gauge. I'm torn between these and the Ernie Ball equivalent... I think the Daddario version responds better to my playing style.



I would highly recommend these!


If you have a 25.5"scale guitar. It keeps tensions on lower strings, for chugging and light enough for bending leads on higher strings!



Good strings


Great sound



keeps you going


these strings are great for droped tunings such as drop c and if your into drop d and like very tight rhythm playing id suggest these strings. i would recommend this particular set to people who are into bands such as kill switch engage bullet for my valentine and children of bodom.
