EXP 46 Hard Tension Strings
I just wanted to report on the longevity of these strings installed on 10/11/2011 and replaced by 8/11/2012. 10 Months of daily play. I also wanted to comment on my environment which I believe comes into play for the sound for a set of strings. I live in Baltimore, MD. where the relative humidity range for my guitar is from 50% to 60%.

Follow-up on previous review
I just replaced the EXP46 strings on 8/19/2012. Once these strings settled in they required very little tuning between sessions. Tone and sustain was consistent until the beginning of August. These strings will let you know when they need to be changed. Was really pleased with their longevity. A great value for an excellent sounding set of strings. Replaced these strings with a free set of La Bella 2001 normal tension strings. Will review these once they settle in.

D'Addario EXP Coated Classical Guitar Hard Tension, EXP46
I purchased a Takamine TC132SC classical guitar in 3/11. Solid cedar soundboard and solid rosewood back. The guitar was strung with the EXP Normal Tension strings. I thought the guitar sounded great. Re-strung in 10/11 with the hard tension version based on some reviews I have read. What a difference. Much more sustain and the basses have a lot more depth. I do not have a lot of experience with nylon strings but I could definitely hear difference with the Hard Tension strings. Action was also a little quicker than the Normal Tension strings.

Disappointing on a Ramirez
I've been experimenting with different strings on my Ramirez classical. I had high hopes for the EXP, but honestly they were very ordinary. The wounds were okay but not as good as the Savarez red cards that I've been using. The nylons were muted and muddy sounding... that is on this particular guitar, of course.

These were the original strings on my Manuel Rodriguez e Hijos, i.e., Model C, classical guitar and I was impressed by the tone and longevity of the strings compare to the D'Addario Classical Guitar Pro Arte Normal, i.e., EJ45, which I have used for years and now I can say that I'm a convert to the EXP46.

They are what my Rodriguez FC came with. I tried others but the EXP46 makes the guitar sing and growl as it was meant to.

exp classical
I have tried a lot of strings. I have a 60 something Gibson classical and these strings sound the best on it. I also have a Carvin thin body classical that is a bit too easy to play...too slinky. I used these on it and it made a big difference as well as in sound quality.
