Responding to consumer demand, D’Addario XL Nickel Wound Balanced Tension sets have been optimized to have a comparable tension string.

Anaheim, CA (January 24, 2013) – D’Addario introduces new XL Nickel Wound Balanced Tension string sets.

Responding to consumer demand, D’Addario XL Nickel Wound Balanced Tension sets have been optimized to have a comparable tension string to string allowing for greater dynamic control and a more evenly balanced effort while fretting, bending, strumming and picking on guitar, as well as plucking, slapping and bending on bass. Comprised of mathematically optimized string gauge combinations, each balanced tension set was extensively tested with players and experts in order to insure not only that they were balanced, but that they retained all of the inherent properties expected of a D’Addario XL nickel wound set.

Six sizes of Balanced Tension string sets are now available: three for electric guitar including EXL120BT (9-40 Gauge), EXL110BT (10-46 Gauge), and EXL115BT (11-50 Gauge), as well as three for electric bass including EXL220BT (40-95 Gauge), EXL170BT (45-107 Gauge), and EXL160BT (50-120 Gauge).

Balanced tension sets for guitar will retail for $9.90, and balanced tension sets for bass will retail for $33.10 and will be available January 1, 2013.

The Balanced Tension sets are another example of D’Addario’s dedication to inspiring all musicians to reach for higher levels of performance and creativity.

The first thing most guitarists think of when they hear the phrase “hybrid picking” is undoubtedly twangy Telecasters. While that may be the most common use of hybrid picking, it is far from the only application. Diving into hybrid picking opens a whole new world of control, timbre possibilities, ideas, speed, and more.
