"I use D'Addario Strings because I love the feeling of new strings, and I tried a lot of other strings but nothing felt like a new set of XL's. I can play as hard as I can and they rarely break on me." - Billy Martin of Good Charlotte
D'Addario's XL Nickel Electric Guitar strings offer a distinct, bright tone, with excellent intonation and a "fret-friendly" nickel round wound feel that make them the top choice of guitar players of all genres around the world. The nickel-plated wrap wire is ideal for magnetic pickups, relaying the highest sound quality.
All D'Addario strings are precisely wound around a hexagonally shaped high-carbon-steel core wire by computer-controlled machines guaranteeing clear intonation, rock-solid fundamentals, and incomparable consistency in every string. The tight core tension produced through this rigorous quality-controlled process results in a harmonically rich, longer-lasting string.
