Few can claim 17th century Renaissance Italy as the birthplace of their family start-up. Yet, 400 years and four generations later, D’Addario & Co. proudly continues to do so. Today, we are globally recognized as the world’s premier instrument accessory manufacturer for strings, drumheads, drumsticks, reeds, mouthpieces and more. Inspired by our past and paving the future, D’Addario is fueled by an ever-expanding family of musicians, engineers, artists and visionaries driven by innovation. Our charitable foundation also ensures that music education reaches underprivileged students around the globe. And with a genuine dedication to US manufacturing, environmentally sustainable practices, and a diverse family of passionate employees, what started in the Renaissance has become an ever-growing revolution.
