XS Nickel coated electric guitar strings provide the longest life of any D’Addario electric guitar string. Coated with our groundbreaking XS coating, these premium electric strings attain maximum life and a smooth, fast feel without dampening their outstanding tone. Constructed with a NY Steel core, reformulated nickel-plated steel wrap wire, and Fusion Twist technology, XS Nickel strings boast superior strength and tuning stability, plus richer harmonics, greater clarity, and remarkable definition with every sweep, slide, and bend.

NY Steel is processed in D'Addario's exclusive wire facility in Farmingdale, New York. Through advanced machinery and processes, their premium high carbon steel delivers unmatched tuning stability and superior break resistance. 

Fusion Twist Feature
The fusion twist feature prevents slack in the twist from detuning the string. This ensures the maximum tuning stability and higher break strength for our premium plain steel strings

Hex Core Construction
Precision drawn hexagonal core was pioneered by D'addario. This innovation allows the wrap wire to grip the core for superior dimensional stability, enhanced durability, and precise intonation. 

Ultra Thin Coating
A tremendous leap forward in coating technology allows the strings to be completely protected from contaminants for lasting tone and maximum life.
