EXL120 is a super light gauge set with maximum flexibility and biting tone. XL Nickel Wound electric guitar strings, long recognised as the industry standard, are ideal for a wide range of musical styles.
XL Nickel Wound, D'Addario's most popular guitar strings, are precision wound with nickel plated steel onto a carefully drawn, hexagonally shaped, high carbon steel core. The result-strings with long lasting, distinctive, bright tone and excellent intonation-is ideal for the widest variety of guitars and musical styles.
Round Wound Strings
Round wound strings have the feel and tone that most players are familiar with. This string construction combines the strength of the steel core with the tonal properties of the wrap wire allow.
String Winding Technology
String winding equipment is designed and built by D'Addario's engineering team, guaranteeing a production range of 500,000 to 700,000 strings per day. Digitally controlled string winding machines ensure productivity, accuracy and consistency.
