OVERVIEW

A solution to gunky strings!

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.

FEATURES
  • Extra Light gauge: .010 .014 .023 .030 .039 .047
  • Acoustic guitar strings constructed with 80/20 (80% copper, 20% zinc) bronze wrap wire
  • Played for a warm and robust tone that sounds “played-in” but still retains a remarkably clear mid-range presence
  • Original POLYWEB coating provides a soft, smooth feel that keeps the strings from getting in the way of playing
  • Patented coating technology protects against common corrosion, extending tone life longer than any other brand’s coated or uncoated strings (Elixir Strings player survey)

Try a set on your acoustic. We guarantee you'll be pleased.

I'm only giving them a 9 because I think the Nanoweb Phosphor Bronze strings are a better string .
For clear bell like tones the polyweb is the way to fly. I would rather spend the extra few bucks and buy the Elixir strings and sound my best (I need all the help I can get!). I just picked up a custom made custom inlayed guitar and these are the strings that are on it. I was going to switch them out with the nanoweb phosphor bronze strings but then I listened to the clear unamplified sound of the strings and it was so sweet. I figured I could wait to change strings until these wear out. Good strings. Good choice. Step up too the plate and get 'em.
These strings last for more than two months which I find to be true accross the board with Elixxir strings. The best the competition can do is about a month. Good strings. Good choice. Get 'em!
What more can I say, they last a long time Which means in the long run they are cheper to own.

i donno if this really is long lasting...i used martin SP before i tried the elixirs. I was told how CRAZY these strings were and longetivity of it. I gotta admit that there's something different about these strings and they seem to be better, but i've broken more than 10 strings for the past 2weeks i played. I RARELY broke my martins...i'm getting doubts on these elixirs..

      I am picking the guitar backup after 15 years and needed something easy on my fingers. After reading previous review I decided to give these a try and I am pleased with the results in feel and sound quality.

        No surprise on the Elixirs. They're always superb. The point worth making is that due to a sloppy handoff from UPS to the Postal Service, the strings did not arrive on time — in fact, very late. But when I called Musician's Friend about it, they sent me another set as an apology, even though it wasn't their fault. Another example of exceptional customer service from MF. Thanks, Elijah and MF!

          Heavy strings on my acoustic guitar prevented me from playing long periods of time.
          Extra Light Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings solved that problem.

                  These strings sounded terrible. Plink plunk, no chime at all, like a banjo. Replaced them with Martin silk and phosphor, way better.

                    I like to keep my guitars as close to factory/point of purchase stock as possible. I did go one gauge lighter for better playability being a singer/strummer and not having to worry about string breakage! Where I live music stores are few and far so now I rely Musician'sFriend for all my future musical needs.
