OVERVIEW

Gauges - .050 .070 .085 .105
EXP Coated Bass 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 ultra-fine 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 electric bass strings sound fresh and bright. New-string tone lasts 3 to 4 times longer than traditional 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.

Brilliant tone and incredible durabilty.

Love these strings!

By

Comments about D'Addario EXP160 Coated Regular Bass Strings:

These strings are amazing. I wanted to see if coated bass strings would really last much longer and these do! These strings keep that high end bite and growl for much longer. The tone is incredible. The coating also doesn't wear out and fray like elixers do. I'm 100% satisfied with these strings!

Great strings!

By 

from Ky

Comments about D'Addario EXP160 Coated Regular Bass Strings:

I bought the EXP's on the Recommendation of Severo Jornacion aka 'The Thrilla', bassist w/ the Smithereens. I usually use Dr strings, and decided to add a set of DR Bootzilla coated strings to my Jazz bass and compare them w/ the D'Addario EXP's on my other bass. It seems that the EXP's lastlonger and sound better than the DR'd- and they are less expensive... I am a D'Addario convert! They definately outlast conventional strings, and the tone is excellent... if you like Dr strings and are wanting to try coated strings- these are the way to go!

Comments about D'Addario EXP160 Coated Regular Bass Strings:

I have been buying d-aderio strings(exp17 coated for my martin h.d.28 vintage heringbone for a couple of years. They out perform any others I have ever tried. So I suppose the bass ones will too. Best strings on the market.
