D'Addario XL Balanced Tension guitar strings are the solution to a problem long associated with traditional strings. The standard set gauges we've all come to know and love were developed decades ago through trial and error with little regard for technical logic. When you look closely at the tensions in a traditional set, they can vary dramatically between strings, which can result in some strings feeling tighter or looser in relation to the others. These differences in tension can contribute to players altering their techniques to compensate for these variances.
