Product Description

Elixir Nanoweb Acoustic Guitar Strings; Don't Mess around with An Ordinary String! Elixir Strings with ultra thin NANOWEB coating sound great 3 to 5 times longer than ordinary strings. They have the bright tone and punch of non-coated strings. All this and they still feel like traditional strings Elixir Nanoweb Acoustic String Features Great Sound that lasts 3 to 5 times longer than ordinary strings Bright tone and punch like that of non-coated strings The Same Feel you get from Traditional Strings What causes ordinary strings to go dead? You do. Every time you pick up your guitar and play, you leave tiny bits of dead skin, body oils, sweat, and all types of gunk loitering on your strings. Stuck between the windings (a space Elixir calls the Critical Zone of Tone ), these contaminants dampen vibration and accelerate corrosion. The result? Strings that are dead, rough and dirty. The Cure for the Common String. Elixir Strings are coated in a unique way to protect wound strings from your DNA and other contaminants. A flexible, strong, yet micro-thin polymer tube defends the Critical Zone of Tone from invading enemies. Nothing (including the coating) gets between the windings. The result? Strings that sound and feel their best three to five times longer than ordinary strings. The Choice is Yours Elixir Strings are available in two different flavors. Both deliver the same long life, but differ in tone and feel.

I didnt know that guitar strings could really make that much of a difference, but one try with these completely changed my mind.

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.

It's a joy to play on these strings. The soft coating lasts very long and they don't get dirty as quickly as the other strings that I have owned. You can painlessly slide your fingers up and down the neck as much as you like. However, the sound doesn't have enough presence. I have a Yamaha FG-series acoustic guitar which sounds absolutely amazing, but with these strings it sounds a bit more like an electric guitar. High notes sounds okay, but notes on the low E, A, and D strings don't have a warm and full sound. Good choice if you mainly play Pop with barre chords down the neck, but not for open chords and the dirty, slightly distorted blues sound you expect from an Acoustic guitar when you pick and slap those lower strings hard.

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.

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.
