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

Gauges: .011-.015-.026-.040

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.

Genuine phosphor 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 EXP74 Coated Phosphor Bronze Medium Mandolin Strings:

        I made the switch to using D'Addario EXP74 Mandolin Strings about 5 years ago. I love the feel and sleekness when using these strings. They have held up for me until I feel I need to change them out, which isn't often. I use them in both recording as well as "live" performances and they haven't let me down, yet. The ease in playability on the fret board makes me glad that I made the change!

          Comments about D'Addario EXP74 Coated Phosphor Bronze Medium Mandolin Strings:

          Bought 3 sets based on the great reviews. Nice tone and feel but the first pack opened had broken loops on both A strings and were exchanged. Next set change, same thing...broken loops and one string crumbled as it was turning in the tuner. Terrible quality for double the price of my usual strings. Needless to say, I won't be buying these again.

            Best strings out there for sound, & not breaking under heavy use! I play in a group weekly, and pound these strings! A great deal ever time!

              Since I started using the EXP74 strings I knew I didn't want to use anything else.

              Excellent strings

              Comments about D'Addario EXP74 Coated Phosphor Bronze Medium Mandolin Strings:

              Excellent, they have rich sound, and last longer than normal strings. Similar performance to the guitar strings in this line. I use these exclusively now.
