Gearank Recommendation

The EXP10 appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic Guitar Strings from September 2017 until February 2021 when they were out-ranked by other string sets.

Overview

This set in particular, the EXP10, is a great example of why D’Addario strings have been the strings of choice for musicians all over the country.

The strings are made from 80/20 bronze, which is known for its bright tone. The set’s gauge also works towards enhancing its brightness. So while these strings are coated, it’s still a very bright sounding set of strings overall.

The EXP10 set also uses D’Addario’s patented NY steel. This steel was created with the intention of producing strings that are more durable and stable than traditional guitar strings, and the company has succeeded with this.

If you're looking for easy-to-play strings from a reputable company, then check out the D'Addario EXP10.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Acoustic Guitar Strings.
