Item Description

D'Addario EXP38 Phosphor Bronze 12 Twelve String Acoustic Guitar Strings provide more sound per strum than traditional non-coated strings!

"D'Addario EXP strings provide insurance against corrosion and tarnish. The coating helps preserve the crisp tone that Dave prefers." - Monk (Dave Matthew's guitar tech)

D'Addario EXP Coated Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings offer a warm, well balanced acoustic tone, with bright intonation and a "fret-friendly" round wound feel of traditional non-coated strings, that last 3 to 4 times longer. The micro-fine EXP coating on the wrap wire, and the compound plated steel strings, resist corrosion, extending the same natural tone and feel you would get from the best selling D'Addario EJ Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings.

D’Addario’s EXP Coated Strings now feature plain steel strings and hexagonal cores made of our revolutionary NY High Carbon Steel. Envisioned, perfected, and manufactured by D’Addario in New York, this newly engineered, break-resistant, high-carbon steel wire delivers unprecedented strength and pitch stability. Combined with the highest quality wrap wire materials, precision drawn and micro-coated on our advanced proprietary machinery, each EXP set maintains that familiar uncoated tone while adding up to 4 times more life!

Product Video

D'Addario has incorporated Corrosion Intercept Technology with their environmentally friendly packaging to insure your strings are green, and fresh for the pickin'!

The application of Corrosion Intercept Technology, developed by Lucent Technologies' Bell Labs, is the most significant development in string packaging since D'Addario pioneered the environmental string package in 1992. Each Corrosion Intercept bag employs a plastic which contains a gas-neutralizing barrier in the polymer matrix. This barrier reacts with and neutralizes gasses which cause materials to tarnish, guaranteeing that your D'Addario strings are as fresh and tarnish-free as the day we packaged them. Since Corrosion Intercept bags are both environmentally friendly and completely recyclable, they'll keep our planet untarnished as well.

Also, as a result of D'Addario's Player's Points Program, several tons of packaging redeemed for D'Addario gear gets systematically recycled every year.

All D'Addario packaging is either produced from recycled materials or is completely recyclable.

Best 12 string set on the market!

I've used D'Addario for years, and have to say they're my favorite out there. I'm the guy who buys 20 sets of various kinds at once.

Anyway, these are some awesome 12 stringer strings. Light is what you want to keep that much more tension off the neck. I always tune to E flat and never have any issues. These last a long time, and provide a warm, mellow, yet perky tone. I doubt you'll be disappointed.
  • Long life
  • Great tone
  • Good price

It is sad that many guitar companys are putting these on instead of elixirs, Alvarez used to always put on polywebs, which are my favorite string. I liked these EXPs @ first, but that quickly stopped. They just do not have enough tension for me and are too slinky. I do a lot of bends and with these and the bends just do not sound that good. For strumming, they are fine.
