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

Gauges: .010-.010-.014-.014-.023-.008-.030-.012-.039-.018-.047-.027

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. Many top players won't play any other brand.

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.

Features

EXP strings retain their brilliance long after similar bronze and brass alloy strings go dead. Don't get caught with dead strings, order several sets today.

      Comments about D'Addario EXP36 Coated 80/20 Bronze Light 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      I have had these on my ax for 10 days now and they are all the equal of Elixers at a much lower price. I'm extremely impressed with them and look forward to how long they will last playing weekly on them compared to the Elixer's which usually lasted 6 weeks of regular playing. I do a lot of hammering which is generally hard on strings!

            Very Good

            Comments about D'Addario EXP36 Coated 80/20 Bronze Light 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings:

            These are the only strings I'll use on my acoustic 12. Feel great, sound great, and last a nong time ... which is important since changing strings on a 12 takes a good little while ...
            Coating feels natural.
            No Problems
            Coated strings ain't cheap ...

            These are the best

            Comments about D'Addario EXP36 Coated 80/20 Bronze Light 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings:

            I have been using these for about three years now on my vintage Gibson 12 string. They sound great, and last a really long time, which is excellent because re-string a 12 string is not fun.

            BEST BET FOR 12 STRING GUITARS

            By Evensteven-rQndq

            from Portsmouth, NH

            Comments about D'Addario EXP36 Coated 80/20 Bronze Light 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings:

            These Exp's are superior to all other acoustic 12 string sets. The sound better than Elixer's while giving extended life. Also the color coding to the string ends is helpful in both new stringing and replacement. They used to have a gold/copper color to the high E and B stings which was the ultimate look and sound but that's no longer an option. I tune my Taylor 12 string up to regular pitch and these string last for months worth of gigs. Reasonable price for great strings.

            A high quality set of strings

            By M.J.

            from Shelby,N.C.

            Comments about D'Addario EXP36 Coated 80/20 Bronze Light 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings:

            I recently purchased a 12-string jumbo acoustic that came with these strings and I've never experienced a brighter or more crisp sound from any other string I've used in my 20 years of playing and will never use another brand on my 12 string.

            warm tone, nice feel

            from wausau, wi

            Comments about D'Addario EXP36 Coated 80/20 Bronze Light 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings:

            These are a wonderful alternative to expensive Elixirs. I use those exclusively on my acoustic instruments but wanted to try a cheaper alternative on my new 12 string. These are very pleasant sounding. They have a nice mellow and even tone. They are not as bright as Elixirs but perfectly suited to 12 string acoustics. Worth a try!!!!!!!
