D'Addario

Made in New York, D'Addario musical instrument strings set the industry standard in innovation, quality, and performance.

"400 years ago, our Italian ancestors revolutionized string making. This celebrated history only inspires us to keep looking ahead, pushing us to build string breakthroughs like XT, NYXL and Pro-Arté. Sort of gives new meaning to "next-gen" thinking."
