Product Description

From the Manufacturer

EXP74, D'Addario's best selling coated mandolin set, is the EXP coated version of the standard J74 set played by the likes of David Grisman and Ricky Skaggs. Warm and bright phosphor bronze tone with the optimal blend of tight playing tension and strong projection. Loopend construction for universal fit.

D'Addario EXPs are the most natural-sounding, longest-lasting coated strings available. EXP Coated Technology starts with the highest quality wrap wire materials, precision drawn and micro-coated on our advanced proprietary machinery. Strings are then wound normally, delivering tone and feel identical to D'Addario's world renowned mandolin strings, with a minimum of 4 times more life. You won't believe they are coated!

D'Addario, the world's largest manufacturer of musical instrument strings, is known as The Players Choice with a reputation for unsurpassed quality and consistency. D'Addario's innovative packaging reduces waste and provides protection from corrosion. All D'Addario strings are manufactured in the U.S.A. using proprietary, digitally controlled, state-of-the-art machinery for unmatched performance, set after set.

Product Description

An ultra-fine layer of EXP Coating is bonded to the phosphor 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. EXP coated phosphor bronze mandolin 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.

These strings sound so good.
A. Gift For You
We all have our favorites...and for my mandolin, I will use nothing other than D'Addario EXP 74 strings.

I selected these strings as at least at one time Chris Thile noted that he liked them.

I have been playing these on my mandolin for years. I used to use Elixer coated strings, but after a few weeks the sound would start to go flat. I would use that and they would get hard to tune as signs to change them (budget didn't allow changing more often than that), usually at about a month. These sound great all the way to whenever I got around to replacing them, usually several months. Not a professional by a long shot, but i have been playing now for about six years, so have some track record.
I don't endorse strings usually, but these I do.

These are just like the J 74, only they last longer. No other manufacturer comes close to the quality of D'Addario!

I've found the EXP strings have good tone and last longer than the nanoweb Elixir stings. They are not quite as bright as regular, uncoated phosphor-bronze, but they are close enough for most gigging/jamming/practicing environments. And yes, they are easier on your finger tips than uncoated strings.

They are also consistently high quality. I have used around twenty five sets of these strings and have never gotten a string with a defect.

Somehow I found these strings and I love them. What a difference they make on my Loar mandolin. It's so much easier to play and sounds nice. I can't believe the difference that make. These are keepers!

I selected these strings as at least at one time Chris Thile noted that he liked them. I like them too, for their sound and their feel.

These strings sound so good. With the right pick combination it produces a sweet sound. They seem to last a little longer too.
