Following long-standing traditions of string making while also keeping an eye on the future, D'Addario is widely trusted by guitarists everywhere. Great quality and playability makes their strings extremely popular as factory-installed equipment as well as aftermarket upgrades and replacements. When you need to install a full course of strings on your instrument, turn to D'Addario's 6-String Sets to get an acoustic guitar sounding its best. There are a lot of options to choose from in the D'Addario lineup, which comes as no surprise from such a prolific string manufacturer. You'll find the usual bronze and phosphor-bronze strings available here, but also some alternative options such as the EJ40 Silk and Steel Ball End Acoustic Folk Guitar Strings. Designed primarily for smaller-body acoustics, they feel nice under the fingertips and give you exactly what the package promises: "warm, mellow tone." Not all specialty strings are made from unusual materials, of course. Take the D'Addario EFT15 Flat Top PB Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings for example. These are light-gauge phosphor-bronze strings, but they have a smooth-polished playing surface that cuts down on finger noise when sliding from fret to fret. The best part is that there's no negative impact on sound; they still deliver all the warmth and sustain you'd expect from standard phosphor-bronze strings.
Are you a country player with a love for bold, assertive tone? If so, you can't miss D'Addario's EJ38H High Strung 10-27 Acoustic Guitar Strings. Designed for "Nashville tuning," these strings allow you to pull big, 12-string sound out of an ordinary 6-string guitar. What's more, they're much easier to play and keep in tune than an actual 12-string.
The list of professional guitarists who trust D'Addario strings is an ever-growing one that includes Alan Jackson, Ben Harper, Jewel and Dave Matthews, just to name a few. When you want to upgrade your full set of acoustic guitar strings all at once, you've got every reason to add your name to that list and tune in a 6-string set from D'Addario.
