"EXP Coated strings are fantastic. They sound great as soon as I put them on and their tone hasn’t changed after a couple gigs that would normally have destroyed regular strings!”D'Addario EXP's deliver the most natural-sounding, longest-lasting coated strings available." - Grammy Award Winning Jazz Guitarist Bill Frisell
D'Addario EXP Coated Electric Guitar Strings offer a distinct, bright tone, with excellent intonation and a "fret-friendly" round wound feel of traditional non-coated strings, that last 3 to 4 times longer. The EXP coating applied to the wrap wire before it is wound, and the tin plating process for the steel strings resist corrosion, extending the same natural tone and feel you would get from the world famous D'Addario EXL Nickel Round Wound Electric 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.
All D'Addario packaging is either produced from recycled materials or is completely recyclable.
