Default string brand that comes on Emerald guitars?

Anyone know? I wonder if it's the same brand on all the 6 string guitars.

When Sean was at Emerald Guitars he told me my X20 came with D'Addario EXP26 and
my X7 came with EXP .012, .016, .026, .036, .046, .056.

Both mine came strung with D’Addarios. As far as I know, that’s what they still use, but I don’t know which variety it is these days.

Go to their website and look at the faq section. They have a chart with the strings for every model.

Why, look at that! Very useful - I’d completely missed that.

Both of my X20s came with what looked to be 80/20 D'Addario lights. Way to bright for my taste, I replaced them with EJ16 PBs. Warmed up the sound nicely.

As shown on the FAQ, my X30 came with D'Addario EXP19s - coated medium/light phosphor bronze with medium bass strings and light trebles - they are GREAT - too bad the EXPs are being phased out.

I was able to order EXP-19 through Sweetwater. I just got 4 sets. They are plastic wrapped, supposedly airtight, so they should last a while. I am going to order another 4 sets.... If I can.

I would assume the uncoated EJ19s should behave very similar to these, and the good news is these are half the price and they are not going anywhere! Next time I do a string order in a month or so, I'm gonna stock up on the uncoated EJ19s
