D’Addario created two specialized sets designed for 7- and 8-string guitars that complements the variable scale length and proprietary bridge found on Strandberg's instruments.
New York, NY (May 14, 2018) -- D’Addario is excited to introduce a series of string sets designed for Strandberg guitars. Strandberg is a popular Swedish guitar maker that utilizes a lot of interesting design characteristics not typically found on a guitar. As a result, D’Addario created two specialized sets designed for their 7 and 8 string guitars that complements the variable scale length and proprietary bridge found on the instruments.
The D’Addario NYXL09564SB set is optimized for the variable scale length of 7-string Strandberg guitars (25.5" - 26.25"), while the NYXL0984SB set is optimized for the variable scale length of 8-string Strandberg guitars (26.5" - 28"), with a specialized ball-end taper to fit the proprietary 8-string Strandberg bridge.
D’Addario NYXL’s feature D’Addario’s exclusive New York manufactured, high carbon steel alloy for unprecedented strength and improved tuning stability compared to traditional nickel wound strings, so players can get in tune faster, and stay in tune longer. These wound strings also featured enhanced mid-range frequency response in the 1 - 3.5 kHz range – so players have more presence and crunch to cut through the mix.
The D’Addario NYXL09564SB set is $30.50 MSRP / 16.99 MAP and the D’Addario NYXL0984SB set is $37.75 MSRP / 19.99 MAP and they are both available July 2018.
