EXP Coated Phosphor Bronze Strings provide longer life and increased durability coupled with the brightness, clarity and sensitivity you've come to expect from D'Addario acoustic guitar strings. Here is how it works: An ultra-fine layer of EXP coating is bonded to the phosphor bronze wrap wire which is then wound onto the hex-shaped core wire. The result is a built-in barrier against the corrosion and wear that can quickly sap the life from your strings and your sound. And since the EXP coating is cross-linked to the wrap wire prior to winding, the strings sound fresh and bright. New-string tone lasts 3 to 4 times longer than traditional guitar strings.
D'Addario is the world's largest manufacturer of strings for musical instruments. Many top guitarists won't play any other brand. Regardless of your playing style, D'Addario has a set that's right for you.

  • EXP10

    As reviewed by GuitarPlayer on 10/13/2006

    These strings are the best 80/20 extra light strings out there. They sound great and last forever. My only problem with them is the price but you do get what you pay for.

  • D'Addario EXP10 coated strings

    As reviewed by still playing on 12/12/2008

    I have been playing guitar and bass for 34 years. I have always been loyal to Ernie Ball and GHS boomer strings until I tried D'Addario. I tried the coated acoustic EXP10 strings because the cost was so much less than the Elixirs I use on my Alvarez AJ60, a jumbo concert with maple sides and spruce top. Alvarez ships this instrument with Elixirs and after trying my usual Ernie Ball acoustics, I went back to Elixirs. Not again. The D'Addario coated feel better, sound better and last longer. And they cost less. These coated strings have great volume and clarity. I have no idea why, but the Elixirs I have used sound better on some guitars than others. I don't know if the same is true of the D'Addario coated strings because this is my first experience with them. I would recommend trying the EXP coated without hesitation. In fact, all the D'Addario products have performed well for me and I use them on my Strat, SG, Hamer Special, PRS bass, P-bass and others. I still like Ernie Ball, but they just don't have the clarity or last like D'Addario.

  • Larry/guitar teacher

    As reviewed by Larry Chisholm on 12/31/2009

    I have used this set of strings on my 12-string guitar for 30 years and now using them on my Guild 6-string guitar. I have been playing guitar for 43 years. And have been teaching for 2 years. I am very happy to have these strings on my guitars. I believe that D'Addario is the best strings to use for all guitars. I tell my students to use them. Thank you, Larry
