Two years ago, we challenged ourselves to re-invent the electric guitar string and we have succeeded. We have created a new winding alloy, and have completely re-engineered the process of making music wire for the plain strings and hex cores of our wound strings. We didn’t grab something off a supplier’s shelf. With the help of the Town of Babylon, Suffolk County and New York State, we built a wire mill, right here at 540 Smith Street, Farmingdale, NY. You’re welcome to visit.
In the next few months, you will see the release of the next generation of electric guitar string. D’Addario NYXL, the strongest electric guitar string ever made. Named after New York because New York drive, determination and curiosity are what made it happen.
Recently we have sent out thousands of beta test samples tagged, #xlformula3. The consensus is coming in and the reaction is very similar to mine when I restrung my Stratocaster with Dad’s formula2 round wound strings in 1965. Check out the unfiltered Buzz yourself.
