The good news about the new D'Addario XL Nickels is.............
They have a new longer winding length!
From the Back of the ball end to the start of the taper the new XL Nickels are 37.1" (Front of the ball to start of the taper is 36.825")
So these will fit a wider variety of instruments now where they older versions did not.
It is best to measure your instrument from the back of the ball end to just past the nut to figure the best winding length needed for your instrument.
