D’Addario are one of *the* names when it comes to guitar strings, with a legacy tracing back to the 1940s, when members of the D’Addario family were involved in producing strings for large guitar brands such as Gretsch, Martin and Guild. It wasn’t until the 1970s that the brand was officially started and the D’Addario family started producing strings under their own name.
Today D’Addario make a huge range of strings for a wide variety of instruments. For electric guitar, there is the extensive EXL range of strings, as well as the NYXL which offer greater tuning stability. For acoustics, there are their Phosphor Bronze strings, such as the EJ16 and EJ26, right through to the top of the line XS and XT treated string series, designed for a longer-lasting tone. They also cater to classical guitars, basses, ukuleles, mandolins, violins, bazoukis, dulcimers, ouds and just about every other stringed instrument you can think of.
