The D’Addario Difference

What makes one string company different from another? Sometimes it’s hard to put your finger on it, but when you play a great string, you just know it’s great. On the surface it might not be evident how or why it’s great it just is. As they say “the devil is in the details” and the details of the art and science of string making are the key to the D’Addario difference.

It all starts with our exclusively engineered and built string winding machines. There is literally nothing like a D’Addario string machine. The combination of the most advanced computer-controlled winding technology, stringent incoming wire inspection and “quality at the source” manufacturing delivers unmatched consistency, string after string. Additionally, our passion for and commitment to environmentally responsible packaging and raw materials fuels our continued innovation in this area. Last but not least, every D’Addario string is made in the U.S.A. in our Farmingdale, NY facility, ensuring the highest quality and performance.

Through passionate hard work, unrelenting innovation and thanks to you, our loyal customer, D’Addario is the world’s largest string maker, but our undying commitment to continuous improvement ensures we’ll always be there… listening, creating and working to improve the lives of musicians, one string at a time.
