D'Addario's longest lasting phosphor bronze mandolin strings.

The D'Addario XS phosphor bronze mandolin strings bring you the brand's longest lasting mandolin strings yet. With an XS coating, these warm phosphor bronze strings have a dramatically increased lifespan compared to uncoated strings, while still providing a balanced tone and smooth feel. Made with a NY Steel core and D'Addario's Fusion Twist technology, the XS Phosphor Bronze strings have exceptional break strength and tuning stability over time. The Custom Medium .0115-.040 gauge offers enhanced volume and resonance over Light strings, while maintaining effortless playability.

Play Longer With XS Coating

The revolutionary XS coating gives these phosphor bronze mandolin strings the longest lifespan of any D'Addario string set. The thin XS coating reduces friction and corrosion, protecting the wrap wire to keep your strings sounding their best for far more playing hours compared to uncoated strings. You'll experience much less re-tuning as well, even during marathon practice sessions or long gigs. Breaking strings mid-song will become a rarity.

Warm, Balanced Phosphor Bronze Tone

These strings are wound with phosphor bronze wrap wire, prized for its warm, bright and well-balanced acoustic tone. The phosphor bronze provides excellent clarity and note separation, while still having a mellow warmth that makes these strings a pleasure to play. The steel core delivers a strong fundamental tone and excellent intonation.

Smooth Feel From Fusion Twist Technology

D'Addario's Fusion Twist technology gives these phosphor bronze strings a perfectly smooth surface and feel. The revolutionary wrap wire shaping process enhances the strings' flexibility while also improving tuning stability and break resistance. Bends, slides and vibrato come effortlessly. Your fingers will glide easily along the silky wrap wire.
