XS coated acoustic strings are made in the USA—drawn to our exacting specifications at our New York production facility.

XS is breathing new life into coated strings. With its ultra-thin film coating on every wound string 

and  unique  polymer  treatment  on  the  plain  steels,  XS  offers  our  highest  level  of  protection  for  

maximum life with an uncommonly smooth feel. XS also features NY Steel high carbon core and 

plain  string  wire,  along  with  our  exclusive  Fusion  Twist,  for  incomparable  break  strength  and  

tuning stability. XS is the most innovative coated string ever created. Never fade away!


A tremendous leap forward in coating technology allows 

the string windings to be completely protected from 

contaminants for lasting tone and maximum life.

Incredible strength with NY Steel at its core, XS offers 

greater break strength and unmatched tuning stability, 

enhanced by our proprietary Fusion Twist technology.

An ultra-thin film is wound and fused over the windings and 

core on each string to protect them from contaminants while 

providing a noticeably smooth and comfortable feel.

Less acoustic damping than other coated strings, 

delivering true and pure iconic D’Addario tone.

These new XS items will feature our 100% recyclable 

packaging including our premium re-sealable VCI bag.


D'Addario is proud to introduce XS, a true technological breakthrough in coated strings. This groundbreaking innovation offers players maximum life, an unprecedented level of strength and stability—all without sacrificing our iconic D'Addario tone.

Led by Chief Innovation Officer, Jim D'Addario, the team incorporated D'Addario's proprietary manufacturing processes and well-known innovations—like NY Steel high-carbon cores in the wound strings and Fusion Twist technology in the plain steels—to give XS incomparable break strength and tuning stability.

Setting XS apart from other strings is the new, impossibly thin film coating (1/10 the thickness of a human hair) that completely protects the wound strings from corrosion, without dampening the tone. This new film covering is combined with D'Addario's proprietary dispersion coating, used in our XT line, to protect the plain steel strings as well.

"Several years ago, I posed a simple question to our team of engineers and product designers, to create the world's greatest coated string with no tonal compromise and no slick or slippery feel," says Jim D'Addario. "I am proud to say our team rose to every one of these incredible challenges with the new XS strings, providing the most advanced and effective defense possible to lock in your string tone."

With the addition of XS, D'Addario now has the complete and definitive extended life string offering: The X-Series. Players can choose between XT—for enhanced life and a natural feel—or XS—for maximum life and a smoother feel. The entire X-Series represents the pinnacle of tuning stability and rich, D'Addario tone.

"These new XS strings are perfect for the studio ––super smooth while reducing finger noise without sacrificing tone," says UK fingerstyle guitarist, Mike Dawes. "They have the perfect tension, making vibrato and expression on acoustic guitar much easier. I can't wait to take them on tour!"
