XT Nickel coated electric guitar strings offer enhanced break resistance, better pitch stability, and longer-lasting performance than standard electric strings. The XT coating, applied to each string in the set, delivers advanced corrosion resistance, while still retaining the bright tone and natural feel of the uncoated string. Beneath the coating, XT Nickel are made with a NY Steel core, nickel-plated steel wrap wire, and Fusion Twist technology, resulting in added resilience and tonal versatility, excellent for a wide range of musical styles.
What is the difference between XT and XS?
XT is made with a treated wrap wire, which results in an extended lifespan over similar non-treated strings, as well as a natural feel.
XS is coated using a film coating which generally lasts even longer— delivering maximum string life—and affords a smooth feel.
Each string satisfies a particular need in the market. XT has replaced D'Addario's EXP line as an excellent coated option, while XS utilizes our new, ultra-thin coating to bring a premium coated offering to players who want it.
