OVERVIEW

Special coating extends string life dramatically.

This D'Addario string package includes 10 sets of EXP16 coated phosphor bronze light acoustic guitar strings. Gauges: 12-16-24-32-42-53.

Warm, Bright, and Balanced Tone
EXP coated phosphor bronze acoustic 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 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 other replacement 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 guitar string set that's right for you.

    Comments about D'Addario EXP16 Acoustic Strings 10-Pack:

    I gave up on Elixir years ago. Tired of the breakage and the shedding of the coating. I only use D'Addario now. For me, the Phosphor Bronze EXP 16 and EXP 17 are the best for both aggressive and soft playing styles. Clear, clean, precise and strong. The coating remains on and doesn't shed like a cat. My favorite aspect of these strings are the fact they don't break easily. I can get into playing without having to worry if I dig in too deep, I'll break a string. I love that ... it's freedom to me ... and that has elevated my playing. I've beat on these strings with a Dunlop Jazz III and they respond with a smile. I've finessed these strings with an extra light pick and they sing. I've fingerpicked them with all the love I can muster and they return the feeling. I use these on a Taylor 914ce and the EXP17s on a Taylor 816ce. They can be pricey ... best to wait for a good sale and buy in bulk. If you're tired of Elixirs breaking just by looking at them funny, give these a try. I'm a convert and happier for it.

            I'm sold on these. Elixirs are too expensive & if you capo , the frets wear through the nano & buzz , also leaving a ridge to impede lead runs.
