Special coating extends string life dramatically!

Gauges: 10, 14, 23, 30, 39, 47.
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.


They retain their brilliance long after similar bronze and brass alloy strings go dead. Don't wait for catastrophe, order several sets today.

Cons

  • Coating Problem

Best Uses

  • General

Comments about D'Addario EXP15 Coated Phosphor Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

These are fabulous strings that exhibit tremendous tone, response and coherent balance fro E6 thru E1.

The problem seems to be that the coating is removed when the strings are wiped with a washcloth and isopropyl alcohol. After one such cleaning a significant portion of the initial wonderful sound is lost.

D'Addario might consider adding a warning about this on the packaging.

    OK, Not Great

    By nailpickr

    from Kentucky

    Comments about D'Addario EXP15 Coated Phosphor Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    Just ok.
    To me these strings are ok but not great. You still get some squeak unlike the Elixirs. They're pretty similar to the uncoated.

    One of the Best Strings!

    By Shannon Richards

    from Topsfield, MA

    Comments about D'Addario EXP15 Coated Phosphor Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    Please see quality rating...
    It's a guitar string - What features can it really have?
    I have been stringing and playing guiatrs since before I could really play...I've been using D'Addario for many years because I feel they offer great products at a great price. I am currently stringing my 2001/2002 Martin OM-42 with the EXP15 Coated Phosphor Bronze and I could not be happier.

    Warm tone (Let's face it though, sound is strongly influenced by the guitar you're playing), strong and long lasting.

    Expensive at first...

    By Johnydaydream

    from Auburn,AL

    Comments about D'Addario EXP15 Coated Phosphor Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    After trying elixir strings I was addicted to the idea of not having to change strings for three months or so, but a major problem was the price. Then I found these. At first they seem expensive but they last about three times longer than regular strings, and the third string doesn't snap easily like on elixirs. They sound pretty good for a coated string and will stay on my practice guitars for awhile.

    Comments about D'Addario EXP15 Coated Phosphor Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I've been using these strings for years. The 4 wound strings last at least twice as long as other un-coated strings I've used. The 1st and 2nd strings are not coated so I buy single strings to replace these as needed without replacing the whole step. Also, I replaced my strings a couple of weeks ago and wiped the 1st and 2nd strings with a lubricant called Tuf-Glide by Sentry Solutions for protection against corrosion from oils from my fingers. This stuff is designed for guns, knives, etc. Time will tell if it makes my guitar strings last longer. Anyway, buy these strings. I think you will like them.

    Good Product....

    By Dude123454321

    from Fredericksburg, VA

    Comments about D'Addario EXP15 Coated Phosphor Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    This is a good set of strings if you are tired of your stings becoming dall and losing their tone. These keep their tone and don't absorb oils and calus ruboff from your fingertips. They lasted me about 6 months unlike the other Martin strings which last me about a month if I'm lucky.
