About D'Addario Strings
The devil is always in the details, and sweating the details has been a family tradition at D'Addario for nine generations. Just look at something as simple as their plain steel guitar strings. They pay more to have their ball ends precision turned from solid brass stock. The edges have radii that prevent the ball end from cutting into wooden bridges or guitar tops.

Each string is twisted to perfection right down to the three neatly wrapped "lock twists." And those lock twists help keep their plain steel strings from unraveling or breaking prematurely. Each and every spool of precision drawn high carbon steel wire they use goes through three quality control tests before it hits the inventory shelves.

Pioneering innovative string design has been a D'Addario family tradition for nine generations. Most guitar players don't realize that the inner core wire in all D'Addario steel strings is made from carefully drawn, hexagonally shaped, high carbon steel wire. The six "edges" of the core wire bite into the softer wrap wire, securing it all along its length. The hexagon core is just one of the reasons D'Addario strings are "Better by Design." Hexagonally shaped high carbon steel core wire. Core wire edges dig in to the wrap wire to insure a tight bond between the core and the wrap wire.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of D'Addario products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (22 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Room for Improvement"
Sound: Bright,defined,with plenty of sustain..but has a little more string tension the tone tends to be brassy and lacks warmth needs a better balance across all six strings ok for brightening a cheaper acoustic but not what I would record with perhaps the core to wrap ratio on the strings needs to be adjusted Ease of Use: a little stiffer to play Quality: all six strings don't balance well Value: average value Manufacturer Support: D'Addario is ok, but don't respond well to criticism of their products The Wow Factor: nice packaging,shiny strings don't deliver Overall: I will replace it very soon...can't stand the brassy tone and stiff feel
Style of Music: rock,blues,folf,jazz

D'Addario EJ16 Strings Customer Review
Sound: the sound is great. i take one mark off because they do a bit of a squeaking noise when you move your fingers. Feature: the coloured ends make sure that you dont mess up by putting them in the wrong spot. Quality: theyre made to last . its just that small squeaking sound that irritates me when you move your fingers. Value: very much worth the money. Manufacturer Support: daddario is my favourite line of strings. The Wow Factor: i have it already you. Overall: its mostly good.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
