'Addario has gone to great lengths to ensure every string in every pack of XS Phosphor Bronze stays true to the iconic D'Addario tone. The secret is a unbelievably thin coating that preserves tone, above all, but also reduces squeaks and resists fraying. This coating not only gives you longer string life, but also a comfortable feel on the fingers so you can play your best all night long.
Superb long-lasting tone in every pack
D'Addario XS Phosphor Bronze aren't your ordinary coated acoustic strings. Both the wound strings and plain steels feature a groundbreaking thin film coating to maximize tone and extend string life from top to bottom. This eliminates the awkward stage common to other coated strings where your bottom strings far outlast your top strings. From chords to leads, and from stage to studio, you'll sound your best strung up with D'Addario XS Phosphor Bronze strings.
Hex-core wounds, Fusion Twist steels
Inside each roundwound string in each XS Phosphor Bronze set is a NY Steel hexagonal core — the same as you'll find on a set of your favorite NYXLs or XTs. This angular core gives the wrap wire more surface to grab on to, yielding better tone and intonation. Plain steels in the XS Phosphor Bronze sets feature D'Addario's Fusion Twist technology. This process prevents slack in the twist, resulting in greater resistance against detuning and breaking.
D’Addario: innovative strings since 1680
When you go with D’Addario, you receive far more than a great set of strings. You’re benefiting from three centuries of string-making experience. The D’Addario family tradition began in 1680 in the tiny town of Salle, Italy, where they made assorted instrument strings for over 200 years before relocating to New York in 1905. Since then, the D’Addario family has become a leader in string innovation. They designed the modern winding machine, introduced ultra-reliable hexagonal core wires, and pioneered the colored-coded ball end movement. More than 300 years since the family started making strings, D’Addario continues to set a global standard for quality and reliability. And every day, more than 500,000 strings emerge from their USA-based workshops.
