January 28, 2014 | Update on D'Addario and Chris Thile on EXP strings
There has been recent internet chatter on a rekindled relationship with critically acclaimed artist Chris Thile and the iconic string manufacturer, D'Addario Strings. The mandolinist had a history with them in his younger years and it appears he favors the feel, tone, and longevity of the their EXP series mandolin strings.
We had the chance to hook up with our insiders--product specialists at last week's 2014 Winter NAMM, and confirmed these rumors. Target for release of a new special hybrid string, .0115 .016, .026w, and .040 in the EXP series appears imminent, although it will not likely be a signature set. He explains the gauging in the following video.
