Extended-life, coated steel strings.
Through advanced EXP Coated Technology, D'Addario has perfected the art and science of coated guitar strings to deliver extended-play replacement strings that sound identical to the renowned D'Addario XL series. A micro-fine layer of concentric EXP coating is applied to the wrap wire prior to winding, resulting in guitar strings that deliver longer life, completely natural tone, and the feel of uncoated strings. Plus, the whole set lasts 4 times longer thanks to D'Addario's exclusive compound-plated, plain steel strings, which offer maximum corrosion resistance. You won't believe they're coated. The EXP140 guitar string set comes with a free extra first string.
Protect your strings from premature corrosion and wear when you order EXP-series strings today.

Comments about D'Addario EXP140 Coated Electric Light Top/Heavy Bottom Guitar Strings:
I wasn't sure what I was expecting when I decided to try coated strings that supposedly "last" four times as long for only twice the price, but so far I'm undecided whether it was worth it. The strings lost their spanky sounding freshness after a few days just like uncoated, but they're still holding up well. Time will tell whether I feel the need to replace these later than usual.
Bright sound as expected from D'Addario. The coating is nice and slippery, my fingers glide over them easily. The set comes with an extra high E, which I was really grateful for since I break a lot of E strings.
