D'Addario - Making strings for over 300 years

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.

Very Nice

I have always used D'Addario EJ16 and although they are also termed light the gauges seem to be a tiny bit heavier than the Silk and Steel. I don't know if it's the size difference or the Silk and Steel but my fingers feel so much better and I have been playing for 15 years. They are a bit mellower but my flatpicked songs sound just fine but where they really shine is fingerstyle. I no longer feel the need for any picks or fake nails. The bare flesh tone sounds beautiful to me.

Absolutely Amazing

Not only do they feel and play great, but they sound smooth and balanced. I love how they remove a lot of the tinniness that is normally present in acoustics.
