D’Addario is a New York based manufacturer of instrument strings – mainly guitar and bass.
Their plus gauges offer a slight variation in tension between gauges. These are ideal for equalizing tension between guitars of varying scale lengths or if you’re looking to jump to heavier gauges in small increments. D’Addario pioneered the use of nickel plated steel for electric guitar. Today, discerning professionals choose XL’s for their distinctive bright sound and excellent intonation.
D’Addario XL’s are used by artists like Kerry King ( Slayer ) / Robben Ford / Pete Yorn / Opeth / Mastadon / Pete Doherty (The Libertines) / Lenny Kravitz / John Frusciante (Red Hot Chili Peppers) / John ‘5’ Lowery (former Marilyn Manson) / Joe Satriani / Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) / Interpol / Doves / Carlos Santana / Brad Delson ( Linkin Park ) / Beck / Larry Carlton / Mark Tremonti ( Creed / Alterbridge ).
XL’s are D’Addario’s best selling sets, delivering super flexibility and biting tone. A standard for many electric guitars.
