D'Addario Guitar Strings
D'Addario: Generations of Excellence
The family-owned, New York-based D'Addario company has been in the string-making business for several generations. Today, they are one of the world's largest string manufacturers. They were the first company to make the switch from gut strings to nylon and now they produce a wide selection of acoustic, electric, classical and bass guitar strings using the latest technology and materials.
D'Addario strings are widely respected among the music industry's most well-known guitar players, including Sheryl Crow, Lenny Kravitz, Pat Metheny, Tom Hamilton, Dave Matthews and John Scofield.
D'Addario Strings for Every Instrument
String and Beyond's line of D'Addario acoustic guitar strings features traditional round wound strings, as well as flat tops, which have the same tension and flexibility of round wound strings, but produce a smoother feel and minimize finger noise. These strings are recommended by professional musicians as the best D'Addario strings for electric slide guitar and flatpicking. Silk and steel strings use silver-plated copper wrapping woven with silky fibers for a softer touch and mellow tone, which is ideal for folk guitarists. The metal alloys used include phosphor bronze for longevity, 80/20 bronze and silver-plated copper, a favorite of classical and folk players because of its warm tone.
D'Addario's EXP micro-fine coating technology treats the wrap wire before winding, which protects the strings while preserving an uncoated tone and feel. In addition to acoustic and electric strings, D'Addario makes strings for the mandolin, mandola, ukulele, fiddle and banjo in a variety of gauges.
