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.

While the reasoning behind balanced strings made sense, I wasn't sure how they would feel beneath my fingers. It's not a gimmick and it's worth the extra dollar. Chords feel more even and string bends across the strings are more natural. Plus if you wanted to say, play octaves on a B and then bend up to C, your fingers move the same amount instead of a approximating the two. The sound remains a typical nickel wound.

quality strings

I tour extensively and use these strings on 3 different guitars. They sound great, super consistent. The next step up in sound for me is the Thomastik brand strings but those are incredibly expensive.
