OVERVIEW

Brilliant tone and extended life!

Gauges - .028 .032 .036 .028 .035 .044.

D'Addario EXP45C Coated Classical Guitar Strings provide longer life and increased durability coupled with the brightness, the clarity and sensitivity you've come to expect from D'Addario strings. Here is how they work: 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.

        Coating Improvement

        By 

        from Annapolis, MD

        Comments about D'Addario EXP45 Coated Nylon Guitar Strings Normal Tension:

        I use four classical/nylon strung guitars for everyday gigging, 3 Yari's and a Godin. I have experimented with using EXP Normal Tension strings with good results. The wound strings are a little brighter initially, and they don't loose much of their brightness throughout string life. I am able to keep them on the guitars longer because of this, but like other uncoated strings, the wounds will pit or the string will loose resonance properties eventually; this is not any different than with conventional strings. The EXP's sound different than regular strings, so some equ work is needed to find a balance between the trebles and the wound strings. Once I dial that in, I don't have to do much adjustment until its apparent they need to be replaced.

        Great durability, solid tone

        By 

        from Berkeley, CA

        Comments about D'Addario EXP45 Coated Nylon Guitar Strings Normal Tension:

        As previous reviewers mentioned, these strings do not have the highest quality tone. Thus, they are more "practice strings" than performance strings. However, they do last much longer than average classical strings, and thus are a better value than any other classical guitar strings I have used. They are relatively high tension for "normal tension" strings. However, the D string is lower tension in order to prevent decay.

        Total tone and tension failure

        By 

        from Nashville

        Comments about D'Addario EXP45 Coated Nylon Guitar Strings Normal Tension:

        I bought one pack of "D'Addario EXP45 Coated Nylon Guitar Strings Normal Tension" some months ago at a store and started trying to put them on my classical guitar four days ago. This didn't go well -- they required much greater than normal tension and wouldn't hold a tune. Since this is sometimes the case initially with classical strings, I set the guitar aside over the weekend to let the strings stretch slowly. Today, I tried to tune the strings and got the same problem -- failure to hold a tune (particularly in the B and high E strings), and alarmingly high tension. When I noticed that the top of my guitar was starting to deform under the tension -- and the nylon strings still weren't up to pitch! -- I gave up and ditched these strings. I don't understand the problem, unless perhaps it's that they packaged high-tension strings in the normal-tension box. I have never had a problem with strings before, from any maker, and have had good experiences with D'Addario's Pro Arte classical line, but wow, these strings were simply unplayable. I assume there was a screwup at the factory. Very strange. I'm still perfectly willing to order D'Addario Pro Arte strings, however.
