D'Addario Strings

Despite all the hype about nano this and nano that, D'Addario Strings are straightforward quality and reliability. I always buy my strings from Artist - great value and incredibly fast shipping.

Value for the money in bulk. Haven’t been to any music store since I was introduced to Artist.

I have been using these strings for the past 10 years. Always satisfied with them as well as with Artist Guitars.

These strings arrived factory fresh, as promised. Minimal play-in time required. I used them on a Fender Clapton Strat to achieve a Knopfler tone for Dire Straits songs. I had experimented with several other brands and gauges. Well, THESE delivered the goods and then some more. They're also versatile enough to use with other musical styles. Patches for amp settings and effects suddenly came ALIVE out of the speakers, as if it took these strings to make them speak up. They're light enough to bend hard, heavy enough for meaty rhythm parts. Smooth on fingers and frets. They've survived several gruelling, sweaty rehearsals with no tone/output loss. I'm confident they'll hold up fine for the gigs too. They have an extra sweetness in the intonation above the 12th fret I haven't come across with other strings. A big shout-out to the staff here for fast shipping too!
