News D'Addario XL Nickel Wound Electric 6-String

D’Addario announces the newest additions to its string set product line.

A D’Addario original that has been re-issued, EXP Reds are constructed from a copper steel alloy, coated to produce piano-like tone. The addition of EXP coating to the outer wrap is designed to allow the strings to vibrate freely and sound and feel natural, while lasting three to four times longer. D’Addario EXP Reds are available in the most popular four-string bass gauge sizes and will retail for $59.99.

The new Flamenco Sets from D’Addario are available in black and clear nylon, providing tone and appearance options for both traditional and progressive flamenco players. The EJ25C and EJ25B Flamenco sets will retail for $17.99.

D’Addario True Medium acoustic guitar sets feature a smaller diameter in the 3rd, 4th and 5th strings than the traditional EJ17 medium set. According to the company, “these strings are for players looking for a well defined, balanced sound and tension across their medium setup. These gauges are also optimal for DADGAD tuning, which was originally popularized as an alternative tuning in Celtic music but extends into contemporary folk, rock, and classic finger-style guitar.” The EJ24 True Medium set will retail for $13.99.

Developed for the electric guitar, the EXL111 Balanced Tension Set was designed using formulas that create an equal feel between all of the strings. This kind of separation is designed to allow for each string to be played with the same downward force and flexibility across the set. The Balanced Tension set will be available in .010 – .046 gauges and will retail for $10.79.

 

In addition to these five new sets, D’Addario announces line extensions. EJ26 Phosophor Bronze Round Wound acoustic guitar strings will be available in a 10-pack (EJ26–10P) which will retail for $118.89.  The EJ22 Nickel Round Wound Jazz Medium set will be available as a Pure Nickel Round Wound set, EPN22, to provide a warmer, vintage tone. The EPN22 Pure Nickel Set will retail for $15.99.

 

All of the string sets and line extensions will be available as of January 1, 2011.
