    D'Addario X Mandolin Strings

    Lawrence, Kans. — Registration for a chance to win free sets of D'Addario's new X Phosphor Bronze mandolin strings commences 7:30 a.m., October 15 from a link on the Mandolin Cafe home page.

    Ten individual winning entries will be selected at random on Oct. 21 at 7:30 a.m. Central. Each winning entry receives one set from each gauge of X strings currently available for mandolin (three sets total):

    • 11 - 40
    • 11.5 - 40
    • 11.5 - 41

    Registration is open to all international locations and no purchase is necessary to win.

    D'Addario X represents the company's most technologically advanced series of strings. Their Research & Development team has been working to combine uncompromising innovations like extended lifespan treatments, NY Steel, and Fusion Twists into one string, putting an end to the tradeoff between corrosion resistant coatings and natural tone and playability.

    D’Addario XT, the first portfolio in the series, combines high carbon steel cores and most popular alloys with an extended lifespan treatment on every string in the set, giving players enhanced break resistance, pitch stability, and long-lasting performance – all while preserving the tone and feel of their favorite uncoated strings. These strings are made to stay, for performance that never fades away.

    CEO Jim D'Addario says: "The XT Series is the first to pioneer an extended lifespan treatment that is both thin and light enough to allow for no perceptible difference in tone and feel between this extended-life string and a player's favorite uncoated D'Addario set."
