OVERVIEW

WHAT IS XS?

XS strings feature an ultra-thin and durable film coating that completely protects the wound strings while the plain steel strings receive our proprietary XT treatment, so all the strings in the set are protected from life-killing corrosion and contaminant build-up.  

The coating is so thin that strings ring out the with the clarity and projection similar to an uncoated string. 

D'Addario's  NY Steel high-carbon cores in the wound strings and Fusion Twist-
technology on all plain steel strings ensures unmatched tuning stability and increased break strength.

A
ll othis with strings that have a smooth feel and don’t feel greasy or visibly fray like the leading film coated string.

WHICH INSTRUMENTS & STRING TYPE IS XS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR?

XS is currently available in Phosphor Bronze for 6 & 12-string Acoustic Guitar and Mandolin, along with Nickel Plated Steel for 6-string Electric Guitar.



HOW DOES XS COMPARE TO XT?

The X-Series is comprised of two distinct lines... XT utilizes a treated wrap wire, resulting in a natural feel, anXS utilizes a film coating that results in a smooth feel.  Each string satisfies a particular need in the market. XT replaces our successful EXP line whilXS is targeted to the Elixir users, which up to this point have had no viable alternative.  Additionally, there are distinct differences in string life - XT offers extended life (vs. uncoated strings) and XS delivers maximum life (the longest lasting coated strings on the market). These benefits are also reflected in the price...



WHAT IS THE CONSTRUCTIONOF XS ELECTRIC?  

XS Electric consists of NY Steel high-carbon plain steels and core wire, wrapped with premium NYXL Nickel Plated Steel giving players enhanced midrange bite and crunch, increased projection, consistent tuning stability and incomparable break strength. XS Electric provides higher output, rich harmonics and superior sustain.
