"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.
D'Addario has incorporated Corrosion Intercept Technology into their environmentally friendly packaging to insure your strings are green, and fresh for the pickin'! Check out the D'Addario Environmental Packaging Tab for more info. All D'Addario packaging is either produced from recycled materials or is completely recyclable.

D'Addario has incorporated Corrosion Intercept Technology with their environmentally friendly packaging to insure your strings are green, and fresh for the pickin'!
The application of Corrosion Intercept Technology, developed by Lucent Technologies' Bell Labs, is the most significant development in string packaging since D'Addario pioneered the environmental string package in 1992. Each Corrosion Intercept bag employs a plastic which contains a gas-neutralizing barrier in the polymer matrix. This barrier reacts with and neutralizes gasses which cause materials to tarnish, guaranteeing that your D'Addario strings are as fresh and tarnish-free as the day we packaged them. Since Corrosion Intercept bags are both environmentally friendly and completely recyclable, they'll keep our planet untarnished as well.
