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!

Thanks again MF! Peace.............Read complete review

Thanks again MF! Peace.............
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

The main reason I use it is the very much reduced squeaking of the strings without the dull sound of flat wound strings.

        I play a lot of outside gigs in the spring/summer. These strings hold up well, almost twice as long. The tone is consistent through the life of the string. The tone is bright and not muddy at all. Just a great sounding set of strings

            Perfect for my Taylor GS Mini. I must add, I had a professional replace the originals rec'd with the Taylor which were just too demanding on my female fingers, along with performing a better setup for me, which I highly recommend

                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."

                    Replaced some "well-seasoned" strings on my old Gibson acoustic. I never heard this guitar sound so bright and clear! It was like a whole new instrument. I've been using D'addario strings up until this point, but I think the Elixirs are going to be my new go-to.
