Great deals on musical instruments
D'Addario is gearing up for this year's Great British Guitar Show by announcing that it will launch a new set of strings at the event.

The company is readying itself for the unveiling of the XL Nickel Wound Balanced Tension Strings which officials have said have been created with its customer base's demands in mind.

The string sets allow for greater dynamic control and enhanced balance while fretting, bending and strumming the instrument thanks to a comparable string tension which crosses the entire guitar.

D'Addario stated that this latest product will be launched at the Great British Guitar Show which is due to take at Birmingham's Bingley Hall on February 23rd and 24th.

The event will showcase the very best in what the guitar world has to offer with big names such as Gibson, Engl Amps, Gretsch Guitars and DC Developments all having exhibits at the site.

Speaking about the event, Elaine Smith, marketing manager for D'Addario UK, told MI Pro: "We will have two identical LAG guitars on our booth, one strung up with our most-popular gauge EXL110 and the other with the Balanced Tension equivalent and will be inviting customers to try them both out"
