Electric guitar strings engineered for maximum life and brilliant tone.

The D'Addario XS Nickel 7-String electric guitar strings take the company's most popular .010-.056 gauge and add an extra low B string for 7-string guitars. With D'Addario's groundbreaking XS coating, these strings provide exceptional longevity without damping their outstanding tone and feel. The premium nickel-plated steel wrap wire glides effortlessly over the fingerboard for smooth, comfortable playability. Constructed with a NY Steel core and D'Addario's Fusion Twist technology, the XS Nickel 7-String pack offers incredible tuning stability and strength. Their robust construction brings out richer harmonics, greater clarity and remarkable note definition. If you want your low 7th string to sing with authority while your high strings retain chime and brilliance, the XS Nickel 7-String electric guitar strings are a superb choice. With their extended life span, you'll spend less time changing strings and more time crafting your unique voice.

Extended Life With Groundbreaking XS Coating

The D'Addario XS Nickel 7-String packs are coated with the company's exclusive XS coating technology. The ultra-thin coating provides protection against corrosive oils and sweat while allowing the strings to break-in naturally. You get maximum playing life without compromising the feel or native tone of the strings. The XS coating ensures your strings stay in tune longer and retain their intonation over time. Since you won't need to change them as often, you can spend more time playing and less time tuning.

Superior Tuning Stability and Strength

Built on a NY Steel hexagonal core and augmented by D'Addario's Fusion Twist technology, these strings offer incredible tuning stability even when playing aggressively. The treated core resists deformation so your strings stay in tune through heavy riffing or extreme string bending. Breaking a string mid-gig becomes highly unlikely. Even the wound 3rd string holds its pitch reliably. The Fusion Twist process also enhances the wrap wire adhesion and flexibility for consistent performance. You can rely on these strings to hold tune through long sessions.
