A family craft brought over from Italy. Made in the USA since 1918.
With a family string-making tradition stretching back to at least 1680 in Italy, Charles D'Addario emigrated to the US by 1918 and started making strings in New York. Through the generations new technologies have been adopted and D'Addario now makes an extensive line of strings, all proudly made in the USA.
I wanted to give these Ascension strings a try after years of using D'Addario Helicore and Zyex (which are fantastic strings!).
I'm a big fan of D'Addario strings but I thought there was much more string tension with these than those previously mentioned. So much so, that after a couple months, I took them off and went back to Helicore. Anyone else experience this?
