As a guitarist I have used D'Addario strings for more than thirty years. I am pleased to endorse their great products. They are clearly the most innovative and progressive string company of all.

Here are two of my favorite strings sets:

J51 - Hard Tension
Pro-Arte strings are our the world's best selling and D'Addario's premium classical guitar strings. All Pro-Arte treble strings are sorted by a sophisticated computer-controlled laser machine which performs diameter/tension measurements and quality check's, insuring true sounding, precise trebles in every set. J51 Pro-Arte Basses are made from silverplated copper wound on Nylon which is polished semi flat. These polished basses reduce finger noise making them excellent for recording.

Chromes Flat Wound

Chromes Flat Wound 
Chromes are the world's most popular flatwound strings and revered for their warm tone and ultra-smooth feel. Stainless steel underwindings on hex cores build a foundation for the delicate outer ribbon winding. After the winding is applied, each string goes through 3 polishing steps.
