D'addario Strings made from their patented NY Steel Alloy they sound great, bend farther, and stay in tune better - even after a couple of sweaty gigs - than just about anything else we've played. D'Addario uses a high carbon steel core with a unique "fusion twist" process for the plain strings. NY Steel reformulated nickel plated string windings have increased magnetic properties that give you higher output and juiced midrange for greater presence and crunch.
Behind every set of D'Addario strings are over three centuries of fine craftsmanship. The D'Addario family tradition began in the tiny town of Salle, Italy in 1680 where they made assorted instrument strings for over two hundred years before relocating to New York in 1905. As the modern string making industry began to develop, the D'Addario family emerged as innovators by designing the winding machine most string makers still use today. And while their techniques have modernized, the pride that goes into each set of strings dates back to the D'Addario family's earliest roots.
NYXL0946 is a hybrid gauge set that offers a strong fundamental low end, but with super flexibility on the high strings. The high carbon steel used in NYXL strings offers higher break strength, enhanced tuning stability, and accentuated mid-range frequency response.
