D'Addario XL Balanced Tension Electric Guitar Strings

Ever notice that with a set of traditional electric guitar strings, the tension can vary dramatically between strings? Some can feel "looser" or "tighter" than the others, making it harder to play your very best.

D'Addario has solved this problem with its XL Balanced Tension electric guitar strings. To create them, D'Addario's engineers started with the company's popular XL Nickel Wound strings, then came up with a complex mathematical formula to balance the tension across the strings. Don't ask us to explain it because math was never our strong suit.

Anyway, the results are amazing, providing a whole new experience in guitar playing. The strings are based on traditonal gauges, but the equalized resistance produces a comparable feel from string to string. This gives you better control when bending, strumming, plucking, slapping, or doing pretty much anything else.

Try a set today and feel the difference yourself!
