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.

Fabulous Tone!

Review ~ Enter D'Addario's new 'balanced tension' set of hex core nickel-plated stainless steel EXL170BT roundwounds. The notion of balanced tension is a good one, and D'Addario's execution is one of excellence. String-To-String balance of: volume; tone, and feel is outstanding! Consistancy to the extreme. Winding is uniform and smooth for reduced string screech. Tone: Full & Highly Textured. One of the very tightest bottom ends I have ever heard in a roundwound. Large. Big. Huge. Vibrant. Aggressive low-mid growl. Fat meaty mids. Visiously snarling high-mids. Soaring highs that are light and airy with crystalline clarity & high definition. Attack: with a pick = WWIII! Great Slappers. Plenty of punchy 'umph when finger plucked. Overview: Well made. Plays in quickly. Holds tune well. Good feel. Excellent full range of tone. No annoying unmusical tin can ringy-zingy wangy-twangy clanky-wanky nonsense.
Music background: Semi-Pro Electric Bass Guitarist of 44 years.
