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):

      I was using Gibson lights and tried these as a change. Immediately noticed these strings have a much brighter tone than the Gibsons. I broke the D string while I was tightening it to post (my fault not string) and had to go down to local music store to get another set. They were twice as expensive there so I appreciate the bargain I got at Musician's Friend.

              I like these strings a lot because they fit my guitar well. For some reason polyweb elixirs don't fit as well in my bridge pins. These strings are ever so slightly thinner than light polyweb and they sound just as great. They don't squeak and have great long lasting tone. I will always buy Elixirs, with never a second thought.

                    I love these strings. I have played guitar for over 40 years now and have used Elixirs exclusively for about ten years now. I've tried a lot of the other brands of coated strings but none last as long or sound as good as Elixir. This particular set with the .11 high E string are just the greatest ever. I love the sound and the feel. Not too heavy and not too light as the baby bear would say. :) And Musicians Friend is my sole supplier now. No one does a better job with available products, shipping and my satisfaction. I love MusFriend.

                    They feel so good to my finger tips! The tone is superlative. They do not, however last one day longer than M.F. strings. I don't play very well (yet) but I practice two to five hours EVERY day. I love these strings in all the sizes I have tried ( 11, 12, 13) but the data I have collected (12 months) shows that they gotta be changed at least once a month, just like the house brand. The big difference, to me, is the exquisite feel of a new set of Elixirs, comfy and sweet. There is a feeling and a sound that come only with Elixr but no, they don't "last" one day more.
