EXL165SL is a hybrid gauge set that is optimized for super long scale basses. XL Nickel Wound electric bass strings, long recognized as the industry standard, are ideal for a wide range of musical styles.

XL Nickel Wound, D'Addario's most popular guitar strings, are precision wound with nickel plated steel onto a carefully drawn, hexagonally shaped, high carbon steel core. The result—strings with long lasting, distinctive, bright tone and excellent intonation—is ideal for the widest variety of guitars and musical styles.


Round wound strings have the feel and tone that most players are familiar with. This string construction combines the strength of the steel core with the tonal properties of wrap wire alloy.


String winding technology is designedand built by D'Addarios's engineering team, guaranteeing a production range of 500,000 to 700,000 strings per day. Digitally controlled string winding machines ensure productivity, accuracy, and consistency.


Precision drawn hexagonal core was pioneered by D’Addario. This innovation allows the wrap wire to grip the core for superior dimensional stability, enhanced durability, and precise intonation.


D'Addario's in-house wire drawing machines produce musical instrument wire to our exact specifications. Control over materials, equipment, and quality allows us to deliver high performance products.
