D’Addario EXP220 Coated Nickle Guitar Strings delivers all the tone and performance of our popular EXL220 bass set, offering the ideal combination of bright, booming tone and light, comfortable feel with 4 times more string life.
These strings are designed for long scale basses (34”+) and have a taper at 36 – 7/8”. Environmentally friendly, corrosion resistant packaging for strings that are always fresh D’Addario EXP220 Coated Nickle Guitar Strings are the most natural-sounding, longest-lasting coated strings available.
D’Addario EXP220 Coated Nickle Guitar Strings 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 XL line of bass strings, with a minimum of 4 times more life. You won’t believe they are coated!
An ultra-fine layer of EXP Coating is bonded to the nickel plated steel outer 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 nickel wound bass 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.
