DAddario EXP16 Light Gauge Coated 8020 Bronze Acoustic Strings are DAddario’s brightest sounding coated strings and provide longer life and increased durability.
An ultra-fine layer of EXP Coating is bonded to the 80/20 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 retain their natural round wound feel, and keep their new string tone three to four times longer than traditional guitar strings.
EXP Means Extended Play!
Imagine putting on a set of new strings and having them sound fresh and bright 3 to 4 times longer than traditional strings. Well, it’s now a reality with DAddario EXP Coated strings. Available in a wide variety of alloys and gauges, EXPs not only offer extended life, but deliver the exceptional tone you’ve come to expect from DAddario. Whether you’re the casual player who doesn’t change strings often, an avid collector who owns several guitars, or a working player who changes strings for every gig, EXP strings are perfect for you.
What makes EXP strings different?
DAddario reinvented the way extended play strings are made. They apply an ultra-fine EXP corrosion-resistant coating to the wrap wire before its wound onto the core. The EXP Coating protects your strings from premature corrosion and wear that can sap the life out of your sound. Since the EXP Coating is so fine, it’s virtually undetectable and allows strings to maintain their natural, round wound feel. Finally, a string that delivers it all which is great tone, natural feel, and longer life!
