Special coating extends string life dramatically!

Gauges: 12-16-24-32-42-53.
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 crosslinked 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.


They retain their brilliance long after similar bronze and brass alloy strings go dead. Don't wait for catastrophe, order several sets today.

    Comments about D'Addario EXP16 Coated Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I used to use D'Addario EXP17 because I have a super shallow body guitar and needed the thicker strings to provide a mellower sound. I recently picked up an exciter to give my guitar more low end, so I decided I'd go smaller on the strings to save my fingers. I really liked the quality and tone of the EXP17s, so I decided to stay with D'Addario and go down one size to the EXP16s. I'm not disappointed. They have the same life expectancy and a brighter tone that I didn't get with the EXP17s. I can play for much longer now and my fingers are less angry with me when I'm finished playing.

    Acoustic-Electric enjoyment

    By David Llamas

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about D'Addario EXP16 Coated Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    As a fingerstyle player these strings provide the right sound that I prefer. Tried other brands like Ernie Ball and Martin's but came back to these since I had them on another guitar . The Blues, Jazz and Classical music I play really has a bright sound compared to the others. Even brighter when played with a pick!

    Very Good

    By João

    from Brasil

    Comments about D'Addario EXP16 Coated Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I had bought this strings and used in Wetcher and Crafter. The sound and durability is very good. Better than dadario, martin and other uncoated strings. Clear sound for 3 mounths and usable for 6 months.

    vs Elixer

    Comments about D'Addario EXP16 Coated Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    These just on a week now, I like them. They are slightly brighter than Elixers of same gauge - so a bit more squeak, but that's to be expected. I like the brightness. The last set of Elixers I had on this particular acoustic did not hold up - the coating shredded off, a fiirst in my experience with those strings. These sound great and are cheaper too. Good chance I'll be buying them again.

    Love these strings

    By Tim

    from Orono, Maine

    Comments about D'Addario EXP16 Coated Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I play an Ovation Balladeer, and these strings were recommended by Ovation. They are light strings, no doubt, but they are extremely responsive and have a great tone. Very crisp. I think they're better for picking than for strumming. Their lifespan is okay, but keep them clean for the best sound.

    I had theses strings for about a year and never changed them once on my new guitar.(Ibanez AEL) Great sound feel and last long. I am going to buy them again for it. One of the best strings for acoustic guitars.

    Best Coated Acoustic Guitar Strings for Country Music

    By Chip Stewart

    from Yardley, PA

    Comments about D'Addario EXP16 Coated Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I use these strings as my everyday, practice strings. They last approximately 3 months, and sound almost as good as the Martin SP light phosphor bronze strings I use to perform. The low E string of the EXP 16s sounds a bit muddy, due more to being only 0.053 inches compared to 0.054 inches for the Martin strings. The coating does not seem to affect the sound, since the other strings do not exhibit this muddiness.
