"The new D'Addario EXP coated acoustic strings are great! I just finished a three-week tour with many extra sets and changed my strings only once! I remember I used to change my strings twice a week (at my busiest), but now the strings last longer and the sound quality stays consistent." - Freddie Bryant
D'Addario EXP Coated 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings offer a deep, projecting acoustic tone, with bright intonation that make them popular for recording and have a "fret-friendly" round wound feel of traditional non-coated strings but 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 traditional D'Addario EJ 80/20 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!

D'Addario has incorporated Corrosion Intercept Technology into their environmentally friendly packaging to insure your strings are green, and fresh for the pickin'! Check out the D'Addario Environmental Packaging Tab for more info. All D'Addario packaging is either produced from recycled materials or is completely recyclable.
Don't forget about D'Addario's Players Points Program as a cool way to collect free D'Addario gear just for being a loyal customer!
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.
