collapse expand iconDescription

Combining the popular 80/20 bronze acoustic alloy with an advanced treatment protecting every string in the set. Available in light gauge (.012-.053), these strings provide the warm, balanced tone musicians love while resisting corrosion and extending lifespan. The XT strings stay in tune an unmatched 131% better than other acoustic strings thanks to the NY Steel core and Fusion Twist technology.

Natural Feel, Extended Protection

D'Addario's innovative coating protects the XT strings from corrosion and wear while preserving the natural, uncoated feel and tone. Musicians can enjoy the familiar 80/20 bronze acoustic sound and response for an extended period before changing strings.

Superior Tuning Stability

The NY Steel core provides increased tensile strength, and D'Addario's Fusion Twist wrap wire technology improves tuning stability by securely locking the wrap wire to the core. The XT strings hold tune better through changes in temperature and humidity, as well as during heavy playing.

Ideal for Versatile Play

The light 12-53 gauge offers a versatile size suitable for various musical styles. Strummers, pickers and fingerstylists alike will appreciate the balanced tension and flexibility. The XT strings' corrosion-resistant treatment also makes them a great choice for players in humid environments.

Eco-Friendly and Made in the USA

D'Addario's XT strings are made in the USA at their New York factory and come in 100% recyclable, resealable packaging. The strings themselves are also recyclable, for an eco-friendly solution with superior performance.
