D'Addario Expand Nickel Bronze String Range

D’Addario is excited to announce the extension of Nickel Bronze, their brand-new premium uncoated acoustic string line, now available in two additional sets and a full line of singles.

Nickel Bronze is a result of the innovative combination of phosphor bronze and nickel that yields a string unlike any other. With a great feel and a warm sound, these strings reveal the unique tonal characteristics of any guitar, allowing its natural voice and full tonal spectrum to truly shine.

“I love D'Addario for their Nickel Bronze strings (NB1253)…what I like about these is they bring out the old charm in my ‘57 J45. They have life but without the harsh brightness of brand new strings. My band uses them as well.” - Kacey Musgraves
The newly added extensions include Resophonic Guitar (.016 – .056) and 12-String Light Gauge (.010 – .047), both identical to D’Addario’s Phosphor Bronze versions in optimized gauge combinations. The Nickel Bronze extension also includes a full line of single strings in selective gauges from 20 on through 60” for players to use as replacements or to create their own custom sets.

Nickel Bronze strings provide a crisp, clear sound as well as outstanding balance and harmonically rich overtones to play articulate melody lines and full chords. And thanks to D’Addario-engineered NY Steel cores and plain steel strings, players will enjoy improved tuning stability and higher break resistance, so they can spend less time tuning and more time playing.
