Product Description


D'Addario pioneered the use of nickelplated steel for electric guitar. Today, discerning professionals like Mark Tremonti, John Scofield, Carlos Santana, Pat Metheny, and Brad Delson, just to name a few, choose XLs for their distinctive bright sound and excellent intonation.

These strings last longer, sound brighter and because they're nickel plated they're easier on your frets than bare steel.
