D'Addario XS Nickel-plated strings bring the company's cutting-edge XS-coated formula to the electric guitar for the first time. These strings yield iconic D'Addario tone, but with a longer lifespan that ages gracefully. The ultra-thin XS coating not only preserves tone and longevity, but it also addresses common guitar player gripes about coated strings with their reduced string noise, lightning-fast playability, and superior resistance to fraying. JB MUSIC players agree: if you're looking for coated guitar strings that sound great and give you longer hours of playtime, D'Addario XS Nickel-plated Steels are a clear winner.
XS Nickel strings have the longest life of any D’Addario electric string, plus a smooth, fast feel, thanks to the ultra-thin XS film coating.
Premium nickel-plated steel wrap wire provides a bright tone with increased output, bite, and sustain.
With a NY Steel core and Fusion Twist technology, XS Nickel offers greater break strength and unmatched tuning stability—staying in tune 131% better than standard electric strings.
