OVERVIEW

Steel on the inside, space-age polymer on the outside!

Jam on and on (and on) with the same premium 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?

Crafted to last, these acoustic strings constructed with 80/20 (80% copper, 20% zinc) bronze wrap wire boast a warm, robust tone that sounds "played-in" right out of the pack while still retaining a remarkably clear mid-range presence. The POLYWEB Coating brings a soft, slick, and fast feel to the playing experience.

For a more traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel, try Elixir's ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating. The 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, for example, might be a good fit, especially if you’re also looking for a crisper, brighter, and more vibrant tone. For strings that strike a dynamic balance between full-bodied tone and sparkling high-end clarity, our Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings deliver exactly that alongside our NANOWEB Coating’s more traditional feel.

I've been using the Polyweb Elixers for years, and I can say from experience that with a normal amount of changing, I have never broken one, and they always sound great, even a month into playing! If you're ever in doubt as to whether you should spend the cash on Elixers, tha answer is yes. Always yes. If you're a beginner or someone who doesn't play often, but these and string your guitar with them. They'll last longer and won't corrode out and get junk all over your fretboard if you don't string or play them often. Totally worth it.

I am the youth worship leader at my church. After reading a review on the strings I thought I would give them a try. I practice several times a week to get ready for Sunday, by no means am I a shreader or a string killer. I usualy use the Musicians friend brand and have had no real complaints other than they tarnish quickly and they don't last long but what strings do on an acoustic? Though I have yet to have any "peeling" as mentioned in other reviews I did notice that the poly web makes the strings thicker which is just more for my clumbsey fingers to buzz on. They do however do seem to last longer. I am still trying to kill the strings so that I can put a new set on, which shouldnt be much longer. For the money I could have bought several sets of other name brand quality strings. Not realy worth the extra money for the coating, I think I'll try some bronze strings next. Don't waist your money.

    You get what you pay for when it comes to guitar strings. I've used many brands but have found Elixir strings last longer and sound great. Wish they weren't so pricy!

        I replaced my acoustic guitar strings with these strings and I couldn't be happier.
        So easy to play and they sound great.

                        I use custom lights on both my acoustic and my electric, my only complaint is the peeling of the Polyweb coating. Still a great string for me.
