Developed by John D'Addario Sr. over 80 years ago, these strings are known for their BOLD EXTRA BRIGHT TONE. The deep bottom-end and crisp highs make them a favorite for recording artists and the preferred choice of vintage enthusiasts. Our diamond-drawn, 80-20 bronze alloy offers stellar balance of volume, projection, and playing comfort.

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.
Also, as a result of D'Addario's Player's Points Program, several tons of packaging redeemed for D'Addario gear gets systematically recycled every year.
All D'Addario packaging is either produced from recycled materials or is completely recyclable.
