Get the Most out of Your Acoustic guitar with D'Addario Strings!Behind every set of D'Addario strings are over three centuries of fine craftsmanship. The D'Addario family tradition began in the tiny town of Salle, Italy in 1680 where they made assorted instrument strings for over two hundred years before relocating to New York in 1905. As the modern string making industry began to develop, the D'Addario family emerged as innovators by designing the winding machine most string makers still use today. And while their techniques have modernized, the pride that goes into each set of strings dates back to the D'Addario family's earliest roots.
Phosphor Bronze was introduced to string making by D'Addario in 1974 and has become synonymous with warm acoustic tone. These strings are acclaimed world-wide, because they sound great even after extended use and wear.

However, these are nice sounding, and certainly not a waste of money. close [-]
