EXP NY Steel String Strength
D'Addario EXP strings are created using advanced proprietary machinery. Starting with a micro-coated wrap wire that is precision drawn, EXP strings with NY Steel are then wound normally to maintain feel and tone. The only difference a player will notice is that the string lifespan is a minimum of 4 times longer.
EXP NY Steel Pitch Stability
D'Addario EXP strings with NY Steel deliver the natural, vibrant sound of regular phosphor bronze and 80/20 bronze acoustic strings with an unparalleled pitch stability. EXP strings not only last substantially longer, but they hold their tune better than any competitor strings.

If you love the tone and feel of nicely broken in strings, but hate changing them when they inevitably wear out, then you need to pick up a set of D'Addario's EXP-coated phosphor bronze acoustic guitar strings. They sport the same durable hex-shaped cores and top-quality wrap wire as their regular phosphor bronze strings, but there's more to these amazing strings. An ultra fine coating keeps the nasty oils on your fingers from eating away at your strings, keeping them bright and fresh up to four times longer than regular strings.

All that being said, I used these strings to fix up my Father In Law's guitar. Needed a new saddle, bridge pins, and a few other things. I used these strings once I got it pieced back together and the guitar sounded fantastic! It's been a few months since then and the strings are still in good shape, and they still give off a great tone.
was that they did not start quite as bright as the non-coated versions of the same strings. That pronounced
harpsichord sound of new strings was slightly diminished. On the other hand, the decline of the strings
seemed to be slower. If you really like day-one of the non-coated variety, these may not be for you. If you
like day-seven, these will keep that sound for longer.
Skill level of the players: advanced and intermediate
Guitars: Martin D35, Martin HD28, Guild Acoustic (not sure of model)
String used were medium weight in all cases and D'Addario coated and non-coated varieties.
Update: So after choosing Elixirs for my Taylor and Takamines and being quite satisfied, I bought an all-wood Alvarez that came with EXPs and had a great, deep sound. Of course, I switched back to Elixirs when the EXPs wore out and boy what a drop in sound quality, so now I switched back to EXPs only for my Alvarez. The lesson here is that some guitars sound better with Elixirs and some with EXPs. I still feel Elixirs are the way to go in general for quality and tone but my Alvarez demands EXP. Go figure!
