Acoustic Properties

D'Addario Nickel Bronze Difference

Compared to standard phosphor bronze strings, Nickel Bronze delivers enhanced mids and highs for greater clarity, presence, and harmonically rich overtones, without compromising low end warmth.

Tuning Stability

D'Addario Nickel Bronze stays in tune better than traditional strings due D'Addario's proprietary NY Steel high-carbon alloy

NY Steel is a proprietary high-carbon steel alloy developed by D’Addario specifically for use as wire in music instrument strings. Engineered to have greater pitch stability, NY Steel cores and plain steel strings allow players to spend less time tuning and more time making music.
