D'Addario EXL110W Electric Guitar Strings: Enhanced Tone and Durability

Introducing the D'Addario EXL110W, a variant of the iconic EXL110 electric guitar strings, beloved for their ideal blend of tone, flexibility, and longevity. These strings feature the traditional XL110 gauging but with a crucial twist—a wound third string. This modification offers a richer, more resonant tone while maintaining the playability D'Addario is known for.

Optimal Design for Enhanced Musical Expression

The EXL110W set is meticulously crafted with nickel-plated steel, precision-wound onto a high-carbon steel core with a hexagonal shape. This detailed production process ensures strings that not only last longer but also deliver a bright, distinct tone with excellent intonation. This makes them suitable for a wide range of musical styles and guitar types, from rock to jazz and beyond.

Features and Benefits

D'Addario's EXL110W strings are designed for guitarists seeking to enhance their sound with the addition of a wound third string, which provides a warmer and more melodic tone in the mid-range frequencies. This feature is particularly beneficial for players who engage in both rhythm and lead roles, offering a more balanced sound profile across performances.

Eco-Friendly and Reliable

These strings are packaged in environmentally friendly, corrosion-resistant materials, ensuring that they remain fresh and ready for use. Made in the USA, D'Addario's commitment to quality and performance is evident, providing guitarists with a reliable choice that supports both their musical journey and the environment.
