D'Addario Classical Guitar Strings
Our D'Addario classical guitar strings are among the finest in the world, crafted by a family-owned company that has been manufacturing strings for generations. They were the first to offer nylon strings when the material was first introduced, and continue to lead the way in string innovation. They still use the latest technology and continue to commit to quality. Our D'Addario Student Classic strings feature 3 clear nylon trebles and 3 silver-plated copper wound basses for the best tonal balance. The Classics series have rectified nylon trebles with silver wound basses. The trebles are precision rectified using the company's proprietary grinding technique, which assures perfect roundness and precise intonation. This particular series gives a warm, mellow tone. The strings also have a somewhat textured feel. They are available in different tensions, and are placed in corrosion-resistant, environmentally friendly packages. D'Addario's EXP series uses their EXP micro coating technology, where an ultra-thin layer of coating is bonded to a silver-plated copper wire and then wound onto the multi-filament core. This gives the strings long-lasting protection against dirt, sweat and skin oils which would otherwise damage them and deaden the tone. Due to the special material used, they still feel like naturally round wound strings and have a bright tone normally associated with untreated strings. Classical and flamenco guitarist Adam del Monte uses these strings, and has said that "they bring out the character of my instrument". Classical musician John Dearman says, "EXPs give me perfect sound, feel and intonation". Among all the classical D'Addario guitar strings, their Pro-Arte line is most popular. Trebles are carefully examined by laser machines to ensure precision, and bass strings are silver-plated copper wound. The Pro-Arte Composites include an optional monofilament composite 3rd/G string to give perfect balance between trebles and basses, and the Lightly Polished Composites reduce finger noise, making them perfect for recording. The Pro-Arte DynaCore sets feature an innovative winding technique and multifilament stranded core which results in a rich sound and consistent intonation. These strings also offer increased tuning stability and long string life. We also have D'Addario's composite strings for flamenco guitar. Other artists who use and recommend D'Addario strings include guitarist Richard Bennett (Neil Diamond, Mark Knopfler) and Tony Hooper (The Blues Counsel).
