Get Long-lasting Tone from These Acoustic Strings!

An ultra-fine layer of EXP Coating is bonded to the 80/20 bronze wrap wire which is then wound onto a NY High Carbon Steel core 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. Sweetwater knows that choosing the perfect string is vital to a musician's sound. EXP coated 80/20 bronze strings have a natural round wound feel and sound fresh and bright with a "new string tone" that lasts three to four times longer than traditional guitar strings.

D'Addario - Making strings for over 300 years

Behind every set of D'Addario strings are over three centuries of fine craftsmanship. The D'Addario family tradition began in the tiny town of Salle, Italy in 1680 where they made assorted instrument strings for over two hundred years before relocating to New York in 1905. As the modern string making industry began to develop, the D'Addario family emerged as innovators by designing the winding machine most string makers still use today. And while their techniques have modernized, the pride that goes into each set of strings dates back to the D'Addario family's earliest roots.

I like these better than Elixir's!

I had heard these were really great strings but had bought into the Elixir hype for years. I thought what the heck, I'd give the EXP's a try. I was totally blown away at how bright the strings are, how easy they stretch out, how well they stay in tune, and how great they feel to the touch and to bending! They sound awesome!

Surprised me very pleasantly...

The D'Addario EXP11's have been great for me. I NEVER write reviews, but given that I have tried so many strings and that through several sets these have proven so good in all areas, I could not resist. Nice feel, great sound and they seem to stay in good tune, I have them on several guitars now. Surprised to say though that the Elixirs are not a consideration for me now.

Coated? With rust already.

I was looking to try other string brands other than Elixir, and had several recommendations for D'Addario's. So when the set of Elixir's I had, worn down, I bought these expecting to be at least as good as Elixir's. Slapped them on, they sounded great if not better than Elixir's, and ten times better than any Martin string. I play a lot, hours everyday, this may have been the problem because these strings already were rusty by day 2, when Elixir's would not be. If you didn't play as much and wanted to save a couple dollars than paying for Elixir's these would do fine.
