OVERVIEW

Combat finger grunge!

Gauges: 11-15-22-32-42-52.

Elixirs are the first major innovation in strings in over forty years, and they deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what you put them on or how often you play. Nanoweb coating permits strings with the feel, bright tone, and punch of traditional strings.

Elixir Acoustic Guitar Strings are covered with an ultra-thin, space-age polymer tube that contacts the string on the tops of the windings only. This leaves the all-important winding-to-winding-to-core space free from the fear of the enemies of tone!

Most players report that Elixir Strings keep sounding great 3 to five times longer than ordinary strings.

FEATURES
  • Gauges: 11-15-22-32-42-52
  • Acoustic guitar strings constructed with 80/20 (80% copper, 20% zinc) bronze wrap wire
  • Played for a crisp, bright tone with an expressive, vibrant presence
  • Ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating provides a more traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel
  • Patented coating technology protects against common corrosion, extending tone life longer than any other brand’s coated or uncoated strings (Elixir Strings player survey)
  • America’s #1 acoustic guitar string brand – MI Sales

Elixer Nanos are the best strings out there for me. We all know there's a ton to choose from but with the smooth feel and extended life you just can't go wrong. Pricey to some they are but you really get that back in more ways than one. I prefer the Custom Lights because they feel right. Bending the E - G strings is effortless while the D - E hold a good bottom end. Even with other brands in the past I've preferred Custom Lights because they offer the best playability. If you've never tried Elixir Strings you owe yourself the treat to experience the best. I believe you will stay with them like I have.
Nice smooth, silky feel to the fingers and longer play time
Second to none
A little pricey. With '3X Longer Life" I guess they can charge '3X Normal Price'. Around $10/set would increase sales, I'm sure.

I adore the sound of the Elixers on my Alvarez acoustic guitar, but the .23 gauge string breaks after about two hours of playing- every time. The other strings seem to be relatively long lived, however.

Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.011-.052):

So I got these by my guitar teachers suggestion. I saw them and I was kinda like meh... Elixir? Sounds kinda weird. The following day I came back and Picked up my guitar, went home and started playing them. My first thought was "Whoa there slidy (if that's a word)" They have a thin layer which was like slidy and stuff! I played them for about a minute and I couldn't put my guitar (a washburn, awesome) down. I LOVED THEESE STRINGS! I don't think i'll ever get another brand. I've had them for like 4 months and there still not flat and good. I highly reccoment them!

ONLY STRINGS FOR ME!

By Ace Murray

from Oregon

Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.011-.052):

I have used Elixir strings on every acoustic I have owned for several years now and I just can't imagine using anything else. They stay fresh much longer than strings I have used in the past. I have tried during rough financial times to use something a bit cheaper, but always end up right back with the Elixirs.

Do yourself a favor and try these strings

By Frankspeare-ZCTF0

from Fountain Hills, AZ

Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.011-.052):

I've been a pro player for many years and got used to changing my strings once a week, and the difference was notable with a new set. Not with these strings. I now go 2-3 months without changing strings and don't miss it at all. :o) This coating works, the strings sound great, and they last and last.

      Yeah it's good. I use this brand for my Taylor guitars just because Taylors recommendations. After using it 14 times, i feel/hear the set doesnot have its good tone/brilliance so I replace it.

      Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.011-.052):

      A comment here said the these strings break easily, mainly the G string. True if you are a hard picker. But that isnt the string fault. Select the string for your style of playing. I use this set and also the regular light set depending on what I am playing. For soft strumming and fills that do not run over other the other music, these strings are great. To me they are a hybrid between the light and extra light gauges. Sure the B G and E are lighter, and more prone to breaking but I have broken strings in this set only twice. And both times it was due to tuning from standard to drop tunings and back several times back to back. Also, install strings PROPERLY. If you dont know how (and a lot of pickers still dont know), go to Taylor guitars web site for info on that. Just a tad lighter that standard light gauge strings and if you barre chord high on the neck a lot, these strings make it easier on the fingers because of less string tension. Its a long life string. I can play every day and still get up to 6 months on a set of these strings with still having great sound. I have one Taylor that has this string on it for a year. Its not played a lot but the coating helps prevent corrosion and degradation of the string. The coating will start to fray when you play a lot but they will still be playable. That is when it is my queue to change strings.

      Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.011-.052):

      I've had these on my guitar for about a week now and minus the fact that the tone is so bright yet that I have to wear sunglasses, they sound really nice. They seem to be a very strong string; however, there is a little resistance when doing bends, hammer-ons, etc.

      Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.011-.052):

      overall these strings sound and play wonderfully, and last forever. the price is a tad high, but its still well worth the exrta money.
      high quality strings. they sound great for months, and i have never had a single string break on me.
      they are reletively expensive but they outlast and outplay cheaper strings tenfold.
