D'Addario XT - Coated Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings - Light (12-53) - 3 Pack



XT Series/Light - 12-53

D’Addario’s XT Acoustic Phosphor Bronze strings combine our most popular acoustic alloy with an advanced corrosion resistant treatment on every string in the set, preserving the natural tone and feel of uncoated strings.

Since D'Addario introduced Phosphor Bronze acoustic guitar strings in 1974, they've been synonymous with warm, well-balanced tone.

XT Phosphor Bronze offers that and more, boasting enhanced break resistance, better pitch stability, and longer life than our standard phosphor bronze strings.

The XT coating delivers advanced corrosion resistance, while still retaining the warm tone and natural feel of the uncoated string.

Beneath the coating, these XT acoustic strings are constructed with a NY Steel core, phosphor bronze wrap wire, and Fusion Twist technology, affording tonal versatility with added resilience, excellent for a wide range of acoustic styles.

This 12-53 Light gauge set is our most popular acoustic gauge, providing a nice balance of playability and tone.




Never Fade Away

Stand the test of time with strings that endure.

These strings are made to stay, with uncompromising performance that never fades away.




NY Steel

NY Steel is processed in D’Addario’s exclusive wire facility in Farmingdale, New York.

This innovation allows the wrap wire to grip the core for superior dimensional stability, enhanced durability, and precise intonation.

Digitally controlled string winding machines ensure productivity, accuracy and consistency.




Wire Drawing

D’Addario’s in-house wire drawing machines produce musical instrument wire to our exact specifications.
