Overview

Gauges: 12-16-24-32-42-53.

D'Addario EXP11 Coated guitar 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. An ultrafine 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 out of 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.

wow. i mean all i can truly say is... wow. when i strummed after putting these strings on my guitar it just sounded beautiful. it didn't play... it sang. you'd be a fool not to buy these strings because they're simply to put it. the best out there. you won't regret it. i promise that it's worth every penny. :D

They sound pretty good for a coated string, and presumably last a long time. But the winding is very coarse and chunky and feels rough to your fingers compared to e.g. uncoated EJ16's of the same gauge, perhaps because of the coating getting in the way, and these strings are *extremely* noisy to do any kind of slide work with or to do moving bar chords with. Combined with the expense, I am not going to buy these again, there simply has to be something that both lasts a long time and doesn't feel/sound so rough when moving around on the fretboard.

      Great strings for an acoustic. Strong clear sound but mellow enough for most any of the softer tunes.

            I use altered tunings a lot and these hold up to the changes in tension and last for a long time. Great for rosewood bodied guitars.

              Seemed jangly at first, but after a day of playing... that went away. Love the tone and the feel of the strings. Not my first choice, but for the money... a good selection.

                    They sound the closest to uncoated strings as I have been able to find(i.e. less like your playing underwater or with a sock over them). The major downside is that they are also the least smooth and produce the loudest string noise on slides. If D'Addario finds a way to make them smoother they will be my first choice.

                    These are my all-around 1st choice acoustic strings. The coating feels natural, the tone is bright yet balanced, and they have a better than average useful lifespan.
