Product Description

Elixir® Strings Acoustic 80/20 Bronze with NANOWEB® Coating deliver a bright, lively tone together with extended tone life that players have come to expect from Elixir Strings. The #1 acoustic guitar string (MI SalesTrak® (US $ Vol)), Elixir Strings, provide consistent performance, smooth feel and reduce finger squeak. With less hassle and expense of frequent string changes, you enjoy more time making music. From the stadiums to the street, Elixir Strings players tell us their tone lasts longer than any other string, uncoated or coated. While other 80/20 strings lose their mojo fast due to dirt and debris, Elixir Strings is the only coated string brand to protect the entire string with an ultra-thin coating, keeping gunk out of the gaps between the windings. The Anti-Rust Plated Plain Steel Strings also resists tone-deadening corrosion, ensuring longer life for the entire set. Light Gauges: 012 016 024 032 042 053; Other Gauges Available Include: Extra Light: 010 014 023 030 039 047; Custom Light: 011 015 022 032 042 052; Light-Medium: 012 016 024 035 045 056; Medium: 013 017 026 035 045 056; HD Light: 013 017 025 032 042 053; Baritone: 016 022 030 047 059 070; 8-String Baritone: 016 022 030 047 059 070 012 014; 12-Sring Light: 010 014 023 030 039 047 010 014 009 012 018 027; 12-String Medium: 012 016 024 032 042 053 012 016 010 012 016 024; 12-String Heavy: 013 017 030 039 047 056 013 017 014 018 027 035.

They are very long-lasting and sound great!
Jake
When I play Elixir strings, they sound great when I put them on, and they still sound pretty good when I change them 3-4 months later.
Owl
These strings last so much longer than non coated....

I have a 25 year old Yamaha FG-200D(Domestic model, made in Japan) acoustic guitar. When I bought it, it was around 200 - 250 USD. I always liked the way it sounded. It was always loud, bass rich, but a little dull in high tones. Recently I purchased a set of Elixir Nanoweb Light strings. Afterwards, it sounded so great that I won't change it for a thousand dollar worth Martin. I realized that the difference was not in high strings, it was the coated low ones which now sounds crystal clear and still rich. I strongly recommend to any acoustic player.

two things that will make this simple for everyone. First off I will never go back to anything else for acoustic and second the polyweb are great but I HIGHLY recommend the nano. The tone is beautiful, soft and they last forever. If you want a higher sound with more treble go for the polyweb.

I have over 15 years playing experience and I would not have any other strings on my guitar.

I have messed around with many different brands and even the $1/pack I found online (which I wanted to change half way through a set) but there is simply nothing else out there at this price which lasts as long, sounds as good and makes playing such a pleasure as these.

I play mostly acoustic guitar in a one man show and play anywhere from 2-5 hours, though the average is around 3 hours. I finger pick but mostly strum with medium thickness picks. I tune frequently to open chords and there never is a problem.

I never leave home without a few packs in my case in case a string breaks, but I rarely need them until I decide to change all my strings. They last a long time and never seem to loose their vibrant sound.

I have been using these strings for 7 years now, since I began playing. At first, I was really apprehensive about them. I thought they were pretty expensive compared to other strings you can get for about $5. After all, they were only strings of metal, could there be much of a difference?

Elixir has so much more to offer than any other string. The tone and resonance are amazing, and on top of that these strings will not rust out easily. I originally used the polyweb coating, which was nice on my fingers - but the nanoweb is a definite improvement, since it is a thinner coating and slick for faster finger movements.

Regular strings always rust out pretty quickly for me. The tone doesn't last as long, within a few months the pitch turns into a "thunk", and I'm always, always, always re-tuning my guitar because they stretch so much.

I've had the same set of Elixirs on my second guitar for over a year now. There is absolutely no rusting and the tone is still there even though it is not as crisp.

I like the lights, because I don't play guitar as much as I used to, and the callouses on my fingers are not as thick.

And also, there have been times where I've had to perform short-notice and have actually changed my strings the day of. Usually strings take a day or two to stretch out, but with Elixirs I can literally string the guitar and go through a set without any fine-tuning.

Rather than changing your strings about every couple weeks, you can go months on end with an acceptable sound from the Elixirs.

I've used these strings longer than any other strings I've tried (about 7 years). Last year I switched to D'Addario EXP16's because they sounded better on the guitar I have now, but still keep a pack of Nanowebs as a backup. Here are my pros and cons of this string:

Pros:
+Easier to fret and play than other strings. I don't know why; I looked up the tension stats on these strings and they seem to be equivalent or higher than other strings. But they certainly are easier to fret (press down) and play than any other string I've tried, including other coated ones. The coating on the Nanoweb strings is thinner than the Elixir Polyweb series, but still feel very smooth and even 'slippery', as some people remarked. They have very little string squeak.

+Last longer than any other strings I've tried - maybe because of their brightness, these strings mellow with age (as all strings do) but never really sound dull. The only reason I saw to change them was when they became overly dirty or broke, usually every few months of regular playing.

+Very bright sound, which cuts through well playing live with a full band, and livens up the sound of cheaper guitars. However, this can also be a con (see below)

Cons:
-Cost more than most strings, including other coated strings.

-Can sound overly bright, especially on some higher end guitars. They tend to dominate the sound of the guitar, which is good for cheaper guitars without quality woods or construction, but not so good for a guitar that already resonates well. For this reason I switched to the EXP16 phosphor bronze string for my current guitar.

I've played with elixir strings since they first came out. I love the sound and the fact that they stay new for a long, long time. But it seems like about a year ago my g string started breaking way too early. I usually leave the strings on for about 3 months, but the g string has started breaking after about 1 month, or sometimes earlier depending on how much I play my acoustic. It breaks at the saddle and I make sure there are no burrs and that it's set up right, but it keeps breaking. I've talked to several other players in the area that have stopped using elixir for the same reason. If Elixir will get this fixed, I'll come back, but until then, I go with D'Addario DXR.
