OVERVIEW

Balanced voice across all strings.

Prolong your tone with the same acoustic guitar strings that experienced players worldwide trust to keep their incredible tone longer than any other string available.

Unlike other string brands, Elixir Strings coats the whole string. This protects not only the outer string surface but also the gaps between the windings where common tone-deadening gunk typically builds up in other brands’ coated and uncoated guitar strings. Anti-Rust Plating on plain steel strings ensures longer tone life for the entire set.

Who wouldn’t love more quality playing time between the hassle and cost of string changes?

Premium by design, these acoustic strings constructed with 80/20 (80% copper, 20% zinc) bronze wrap wire boast a crisp, bright tone with an expressive, vibrant presence. Compared to Elixir's original POLYWEB Coating, the ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating allows a more traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel.

For a slicker, gentler feel, try the original POLYWEB Coating on their 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Strings, which also feature a more robust and rounded tone. For more of a balance between bold and bright, Elixir's Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating deliver full-bodied tone and sparkling high-end clarity alongside the same traditional feel as these 80/20 bronze strings.

Of course, the kind of string you play is all a matter of personal preference. Not sure what tone or feel is right for you? Try them out for yourself, and find your new favorite string from Elixir Strings. For a more in-depth look at what makes our strings so special, scroll to the branded info further down the page.

Elixir HD Light Strings

      Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, HD Light (.013-.053):

      I saw the reviews about the HD Lights not being ground-breaking technology; however, the re-arrangement of some medium and light strings is just perfect for my uses. I play at church, normally finger-picking and an occasional flat pick. I put the strings on my Taylor 414 and 615. I've used Elixir for a few years. I will always use HD lights from now on.

          Tried a set of these on my Taylor 312ce instead of the regular lights by Elixir and love these. I have tried other brands of strings on my Taylor and it just didn't have the same sweet tone. Hoping they start making a multi-pack option for saving a little with increased quantity orders of these HDs.

              These strings have the same great feel as other Elixir strings but these punch up the highs and lows to fill out the sound of my Martin acoustic a little better. I play with several banjo players in our little group and those guys are LOUD so these help me hold my own.

                These strings are fantastic. They hold the tuning well, feel great on the fingers, and last a long, long time. They sound amazing! Some guy at a different guitar place tried to convince me that other Elixer strings are the same, but he was WAY wrong! Once you try these you will not want any others.

                  I love the warmth and tonal quality of these strings. I get about 2 months of serious use before changing them out. I use them on all 3 of my guitars.

                        These are new Strings that Taylor Guitars worked with Elixer to design. I have used the traditional Nano-web Light strings for years and these new HD strings are even better!

                          I have been experimenting with elixir strings and these are good quality with clarity and brilliance especially for finger style playing. I may try another version next time too.

                            I find the 13&17 E and B are to hard for me to play long periods of time. They have a very solid sound but I'm. Going back to 12 &. 16s
