D’Addario XL Nickel Electric Guitar Strings

D’Addario XL Nickel electric guitar strings are the “Player’s Choice”, known for delivering a universally appealing and versatile tone, no matter your playing style.

XL Nickel Wound, D’Addario’s most popular guitar strings, are precision wound with nickel plated steel onto a carefully drawn, hexagonally shaped, high carbon steel core. The result—strings with long lasting, distinctive, bright tone and excellent intonation—is ideal for the widest variety of guitars and musical styles.
