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.

great strings

They sound absolutely amazing.


Ive used thse strings for 20 years aside from trying a few others. They have never let me down. Always punchy and bright.

I'm Blown Away! WOW!

I purchased these strings to replace some "dead" Rotosound ones on my Squier J-Bass (Modified with DiMarzio pickups, American CTS pots / Orange drop cap, and string-through bridge mod). The old Rotosounds were the same gauge but stainless steel. While restringing I could immediately notice the "balanced tension" effect. ALL of the strings seem to have the same tension up and down the neck and fretting is practically effortless! The tone...AMAZING! Deep bass but amazing sustain and rich harmonics. I am completely blown away by these- they are crazy good! I have a very good feeling that these are going to quickly become my favorite strings. These are initially way better than any other brand of string I have ever used and I can't say enough about the tone. BUY THESE!
