Long-lasting phosphor bronze strings that balance warmth and power.

The D'Addario XS phosphor bronze mandolin strings bring you the longest life of any D'Addario phosphor bronze string. Their thin XS coating gives these warm, balanced phosphor bronze strings maximum longevity with an uncommonly smooth feel. Made with a NY Steel core, phosphor bronze wrap wire and Fusion Twist technology, the XS coated mandolin strings have exceptional break strength and tuning stability. And their .0115-.041 medium heavy gauge configuration provides the most volume and resonance available in a D'Addario mandolin string.

Play Longer With an Ultra-Thin XS Coating

The ultra-thin XS coating is a breakthrough that massively increases string life without compromising D'Addario's coveted phosphor bronze tone. You get that bright, complex warmth and excellent intonation phosphor bronze is prized for, with none of the coating noise or dampening of tone that occurs with heavier string coatings. And the XS coating provides effortless playability right out of the package, along with protecting the strings from oils and corrosion so they last far longer than uncoated strings.

Strength and Stability Through Innovative Construction

D'Addario engineers these strings for unmatched strength and stability, giving you optimal tuning performance and break resistance. They start with high carbon NY Steel hexagon cores, wire that is super elastic and able to hold tune through hard playing. The steel cores are wrapped with D'Addario's special phosphor bronze alloy, precision wound using their Fusion Twist process. This creates a tight twist in the wrap wire as it's wound onto the core, resulting in excellent tuning stability and a smooth feel.
