Overview

Gauges: 11-15-22-32-42-52.
EXP Coated Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings provide longer life and increased durability coupled with the brightness, clarity and sensitivity you've come to expect from D'Addario strings. Here is how it works: 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.

Good strings

By Brian

from OH

Comments about D'Addario EXP26 Coated Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I love the EXP series and these strings are no exception. They have very nice tone that seems to last for a decent amount of time. I would say they have to be changed after 3 - 4 weeks of a decent amount of playing. The only reason I give them 4 stars is because the tone isnt there. There is a significant difference from the 12 gauge strings. If you want a less rich tone for "whispy" strumming then these are what you want. But I like a beefier tone, so the 12's are better if you want individual strings to stand out more versus just strumming chords.

I have been playing for about 30 yrs now and I can truly say these are some of the best quality strings I have ever used. The tonal quality is simply excellent.

My favorite acoustic guitar strings at this time. Well balanced sound, play relatively easy, and last reasonably long.

Very Screechy and annoying

By N8

from LA,CA

Comments about D'Addario EXP26 Coated Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

they have a nice warm feeling in the sound,but when moving fingers up and down neck it screechs very loudly and gets annoying. I would get elixers, unless your into that kind of thing, but heed my words its very obnoxious.

Best strings I've used in awhile

By Troy

from Denver CO

Comments about D'Addario EXP26 Coated Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

These strings really do perform. They last a good while and hold up too. Even after some pretty heavy playing they still have some outstanding tone. It can be hard to find well balanced strings and with so many different options out there it can be pretty exhausting to find the right ones. To me, these are the right strings.

    Comments about D'Addario EXP26 Coated Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    These were are the stock strings on my Fender FA-135CE, and my first impression is that I'm impressed.
    I've had the guitar since last Feb. and I've used my guitar consistently for at least 10 minutes a day avg., and while I'm not sure what the tone of the strings were originally (who knows how long the guitar was in the box), they had consistent tone for about 7 months before seemingly losing some. I plan to buy more of these because of how lone they've lasted me, and I believe that to be their most prominent quality.

      Comments about D'Addario EXP26 Coated Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      I've been using these strings for over a decade and they always serve me well as reliable, high quality strings that last four times longer than regular acoustic strings such as Martin. They are great for the price and just a few dollars cheaper per set than Elixer, which perform just as well. A brilliant tone, they are wonderful for my many gigs and recording projects and are perfect for the experienced songwriter. I usually replace these once every three months. They have a long life. Beautiful strings, always reliable and never let's me down!

      My opinion

      By marco

      from Rosemead

      Comments about D'Addario EXP26 Coated Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      I have played guitar for 4+ years and if your into latin rythms(songo,salsa,bossa nova) or pop ( micheal jackson) these are the right strings give a good and nice tone. the only thing i dont like about these strings is that after two weeks they start to lose there nice tone.
