OVERVIEW

Combat finger grunge!

Gauges: 10-14-23-30-39-47.

Super light touch for comfortable rhythm and fast lead playing

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 acoustic guitar strings with the feel, bright tone, and punch of traditional strings.

Elixir 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 013, .017, .025, .032, .042, .053
  • 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 SalesTrak® (US $ Vol)

A Wining Design!

Great sound, with the coating that keeps them from wearing out, and cutting my fingers due to rust!

These string are a wining design!
The sound of these are bright, even and consistent. Both in tone and feel. Nice and loose. I used to use Martin Acoustic SPs. There were a tiny bit brighter, but they would rust very easily.These also don;t feel oily like other coated strings I have tried. I play them on a Rogue acoustic I got from here years ago. It sounds and feels like a Martin. Anyway the quality is top notch.
Overall a great value. Just what I needed as far as gauge, tone, feel and longevity. Thanks again Musician's Friend for Being here. Keep up the great work!

When strings consistently break what can you say ?
I loved the sound of these strings on my Gibson J-45 but the G string would break consistently well before they would wear out. I switch to Daddario which don't seem to last quite as long but at least they don't break. Could be something wrong in the metallurgy? Since I don't break other brands it must be. I'm only posting this to help, hope it did. blessings

Best set of strings yet

Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Extra Light (.010-.047):

These are the best strings I have ever used. I recommend them to everyone who wants to achieve the best sound from their acoustic guitar. They make my cheaper acoustics sound expensive. My Taylor 314 sounds amazing. I will never switch, so buy a set you won't be disappointed.
Outlast any set on the market
Terrific sound, long lasting
May seem a little high when compared to other sets, but the tone and life of the strings pay for themselves.

      Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Extra Light (.010-.047):

      Elixir are the strings that Tayor installs on all their guitars coming from the factory. They are similar to a set of "10''s" on an electric guitar and much easier to play than the traditional, heavier gauge acoustic strings. Chording and picking is much easier. Maybe a little pricey, but remember: "The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price has been forgotten."

        I teach guitar and I use the Extra Light gauge strings for young students because it is a little easier on their fingers. The coating helps ease friction and softens the string. I recommend these also to get a little more tone out of a cheap, student line acoustic.

          My guitar seemed to buzz and sound harsh. I put on a set of Nonaweb extra lights and they provided smooth tone thoughout the neck. Chords sound uniform with excellent clarity without being too bright, or tinny.

            I have a Tele and a Epiphone Acoustic. Since I switched to Elixir strings both guitars stay in tune longer with a clear bright sound that far surpasses other strings that I have used in the past. I highly recommend for both the novice and pro player.

                  I bought these strings for my old Vintage Fender Gemini II guitar and they are amazing!!!! I only have to tune about once every 2 or 3 weeks!!! At first they did sound kind of metallic and unclear but that changed in about a week!! These are the best strings I have ever used!!!

                        The primary benefit of these strings is that they sound good longer. Much longer. An additional benefit is that the coating allows your fingers to slide up and down the fretboard with less friction. This makes playing easier and also reduces the noise caused when your fingers slide up and down the string. The one compromise is that at their best, they don't sound quite as good as their non-coated competitors. They're very close, but you can hear a difference if you play them side by side. However, the non-coated strings will hold this advantage for about 20 hours of playing and will then fall off dramatically, while these strings will continue at a high level for probably triple that time. So, if you're able to hear the slight difference, don't mind the added friction when playing, and are willing to change strings every couple weeks, then non-coated strings are the way to go. If you prefer easier playing and longer life and are willing to give just a little in initial tone, then these are definitely my pick for you. They are for me.

                          I've been using various acoustic strings throughout the years and have only come across a few brands that sound ok with my 83' Martin D28... the Elixir's were recommended to me by a friend but all I remember is trying some many years ago and they frayed pretty quickly and I really lost interest in them. I have to say I'm glad I gave them a try again. These are really good and the tone is fantastic ! Also, I've played a few gigs as well as just practicing around the house and they still sound great and chimey where as other strings were almost dead after I played one gig... getcha some !

                                I've been through them all, at 75 shows per year as a one man acoustic singer/songwriting performer, I need my string to sound great, stay in tune and last long and these are the best I've found.

                                    These strings last longer than one would think possible. My playing style is hard on strings, and I've never encountered a set of strings which held up the way these do.

                                    Easy on the fingers.
