EXP74CM, D'Addario's new custom medium-coated mandolin set, is a custom gauged combination of the EXP74 and EXP75 sets. Warm and bright phosphor bronze tone with the optimal blend of tight playing tension and strong projection. Loopend construction for universal fit.

D'Addario EXPs are the most natural-sounding, longest-lasting coated strings available. EXP Coated Technology starts with the highest-quality wrap wire materials, precision drawn and micro-coated on our advanced proprietary machinery. Strings are then wound normally, delivering tone and feel identical to D'Addario's world renowned mandolin strings, with a minimum of four times more life. You won't believe they are coated.

    Comments about D'Addario EXP74CM Coated Phosphor Bronze Custom Medium Mandolin Strings (11.5-40):

    This strings made my 40 year old KM - 1000 sound like a completely different (better) instrument. They increased the volume by at least 25% and have that woody beautiful tone all musicians seek. They are the only strings I will ever consider buying. My Mandolin just rings like a bell with these strings.

    I used to go back and forth between the exp74s and 75s. I think this string set combines the best qualities of both sets. These are my new favorite strings. Thanks d'adarrio.

    Comments about D'Addario EXP74CM Coated Phosphor Bronze Custom Medium Mandolin Strings (11.5-40):

    For the last several years I've used Elixir mandolin strings but had a bluegrass gig coming up and wanted a set with a little more punch. I'm a big fan of D'Addario strings. I use them on all my electric guitars. I've used the J74 set on my mandolin many times in the past but decided to give this coated set (74CM) a try. No complaints on the tone, nice and woody with great volume. The problem I'm having is with the D strings which feel extremely coarse yielding too much sliding string noise. Hopefully they will break in a little more before the gig tonite. The strings overall sound much fuller on my mandolin than Elixir's but so far the feel of the coated wound strings on this set is annoying. So I probably won't be buying them again.
