Seeing complaints that these are too stiff. They are not, you are using them on the wrong instrument. These are primarily for squareneck dobro. I would not put these on a standard roundneck guitar.

I put these strings on resophonic guitar this afternoon. The tone of the 1st and 2nd strings are much better when playing with a slide and when using a regular medium gauge strings, which sound a bit thin. I am very happy with the EXP42 strings and will continue to use them.

Perfect!

Picked up a very nice Recording King resophonic guitar not too long ago and the strings were practically dead from the shop. I prefer to use coated strings on my acoustic instruments, anyway, so after a bit of research I found these EXP's and I couldn't be happier.

When I opened my resinator strings , the thin string was missing. Very Poor

They were quality strings from D'Addario to which I am accustomed, but they did not work out for my resonator guitar. They made it feel too stiff. I think the high strings being thicker had something to do with this. I went back to the medium guage EXP's and it is just GREAT.

"In 1974, D'Addario pioneered the use of phosphor bronze wire for the winding of acoustic guitar strings. D'Addario phosphor bronze strings were an instant and enduring success. A more costly alloy, phosphor bronze was widely known as a durable, long-lasting material used in machine bushings and bearings. After months of searching, a wire company was located that agreed to make sample wires for testing on music strings. The results made history. D'Addario phosphor bronze strings are bright sounding and retain their brilliance longer than other bronze and brass alloys.

Round wound phosphors are available in 6 different gauges for 6 string guitar, 3 gauges for 12 string, and 4 gauges in the Flat Tops series. Flat Tops are round wound phosphor bronze strings that are lightly polished to reduce finger noise and fret wear, and are an excellent choice for noise-fee recording. Phosphor Bronze strings are available in both environmental and standard packaging."
