XS is breathing new life into coated strings. With its ultra-thin film coating on every wound string and unique polymer treatment on the plain steels, XS offers our highest level of protection for maximum life with an uncommonly smooth feel. XS also features NY Steel high carbon core and plain string wire, along with our exclusive Fusion Twist, for incomparable break strength and tuning stability. XS is the most innovative coated string ever created.
XS Nickel strings have the longest life of any D’Addario electric string, plus a smooth, fast feel, thanks to the ultra-thin XS film coating.
Reformulated nickel-plated steel wrap wire provides a bright tone with increased output, bite, and sustain.
With a NY Steel core and Fusion Twist technology, XS Nickel offers greater break strength and unmatched tuning stability—staying in tune 131% better than standard electric strings.
