OVERVIEW

Special EXP coating extends string life dramatically without losing that natural feel!

Gauges: 11-15-22-32-42-52

An ultrafine layer of EXP Coating is bonded to the 80/20 bronze wrap wire, 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. They offer natural round wound feel and will sound fresh and bright 3 to 4 times longer than traditional guitar strings.

80/20 bronze alloy retains flexibility as well as brilliant tone for many hours of hard play. Computer-controlled wrapping around a hex core ensures consistency and extends life.

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.

Comments about D'Addario EXP13 Coated 80/20 Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

these are good strings. I used to buy mostly elixer. But started using these about a yr ago give or take few months. I like the strings but i think the tone of the elixers mite have been a little better. Had a problem breaking strings when retuning to alternate tunings. the problem is now corrected. i am just using mediums itstead of lites for the alternate tunings. at 1/2 the price of the elixer's i think these are a fair deal.

    Comments about D'Addario EXP13 Coated 80/20 Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I regularly get compliments on my guitar's tone when amplified through the PA. I have a moderately priced Ibanez acoustic-electric, and I'm sure these strings are a big reason for the compliments. I tried some Ernie Ball Everlasts in the same gauge, and the tone was nowhere near as good.

          The strings are just gorgeous. They are set in 15 minutes. Sonorous sound and tight. Before that I used the EXP15 and now I will only buy these. I hope that they will not wear out quickly make my long life.

              Excellent product. I appreciate the baseball! It is made very well and of course has the Fender logo. It is a nice collectable.

                  Very nice ... these are my fav coated acoustic strings ... this gauge is a little different, & works well on some finicky acoustics that don't like regular light gauge...
                  Coating feels natural

                  Best strings for my needs

                  By Sam-Pk9U5

                  from Hilton Head, SC

                  Comments about D'Addario EXP13 Coated 80/20 Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                  I gig 6 nights a week during the summer, usually outside, and near the ocean. Between the sweat, salt-water air, humidity, etc. I was changing strings after every gig. I tried Elixir nanoweb, and polyweb strings because they last according to the hype. Well, I wasnt happy with the sound and I was still only getting 2 days (or maybe 3 if I ignored the sound degradation) out of them, and that was only when the G string didnt break before they lost their tone (this happened a LOT). I switched to these EXP 80/20s and now I get great tone and 4 solid days before they start sounding dead. An extra gig or two may not sound like much, but over a 12-14 week period it sure adds up. My Takamine, Ovation, and Fender 12 string sound great with these babies on. I am VERY pleased.
                  No real "features", but want to give tham a 10-10-10 rating.
                  Top notch quality!
                  Compaired to other "long lasting" strings at a higher price tag and half the performance (Elixir) this is a GREAT value.

                  I have Several different Acoustics of Makes from a Seagull S6 Folk w/ Cedar top to Ibanez Aeg20, to a Cortez 12 string that I was forced to mod due to a freakish nightmare of an accident; everytime I thread a new set on, these strings have repeatedly blown me away with their ability to bring out the amazing ranges of tonal colors, resonance, and sustain respective to each guitar...voilin-like sustain, crystal highs, warm mids-to-lower-mids, and deep, full, but not muddy bottom end...I play on the worship team for my church, and in a string-trio gigging coffee houses on the side and these strings have been awesome in both situations; I've tried loads of other strings, but have decided to stick with only these and T.I. Spectrum AC111's...If you're in the market for top-notch strings to help you define your tone, that play and sound amazing, and last gig after gig, look no further! BUY THESE STRINGS!!!
