Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

June 8, 2013 | Chris Thile on EXP strings

Always great to hear and see mandolin royalty on YouTube, and the latest collaboration of Chris Thile and D'Addario Strings certainly no exception. Though the 3 minute video is more or less a commercial for the EXP mandolin strings, Chris's playing is always easy on the ears.

If flatwound strings are not your thing and you really need the punch of a phosphor bronze construction, we think the EXP series is the best solution out there. They are more expensive than the standard J series, but the longevity of the strings because of the coating makes it a worthwhile investment. Also, the strings are slightly smoother, cutting down on finger friction and noise.
