D’Addario Phosphor Bronze Round Wound

The most popular strings are EJ16 12-53 and EJ26 11-52

D’Addario EXP Coated 80/20 Bronze

A 50% thinner, more concentric coating is applied to the wrap wire BEFORE it’s wound onto the hex core. This is in contrast to Elixir who wrap the entire finished string in a Cortex type jacket. Due to the different approach D'Addario use for this coating they feel and sound far more natural. In our experience you would struggle to tell the difference in a blind test with two identical guitars strung with coated and non coated.
