OVERVIEW

Combat finger grunge!

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 met a dobro player at a bluegrass festival. I was very interested in his dobro playing he was very good. Since I was learning how to play he was giving me tips. He said elixir strings are the best. This is my second set of strings, and I am convinced they are the best.

      Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Resonator Acoustic Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating (.016-.056):

      Have played for many years. I love Elixir Strings. The uniformity of tone is immediate. Not for someone that likes the uber-bright sound of a new set of conventional, uncoated strings. Elixir is a not as bright. For me, Elixir sounds like the strings have already been 'broken in', right out of the box. That rich tone remains for weeks and weeks of playing. It seems like a stronger string, too. Even when I use different tunings, the strings don't 'die' from the stress, and seem hard to break. I was skeptical of the price, and even any sort of coated strings - I wish I had changed sooner. Best strings I have ever used for all my acoustic guitars. These strings are also great when other strings gum-up, or (hot gigs etc...) I am the type that keeps his strings super clean/wiping etc. Elixir sounds like they are clean, even if you don't, and still remain playable.

      Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Resonator Acoustic Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating (.016-.056):

      I play heavy picked slide blues. I beat the hell out of the strings. I put a set of these on my Rouge metal resonator as soon as I got it, and have come to LOVE the combination. No local dealers had these strings, so when it came time to re-string I put a set of GHS Acoustic Slide strings on...What a Letdown! the Elixirs were superior in EVERY way, but had voicing on the lower strings that the GHS cannot match, and the GHS mid range tones are very thin and cheap sounding compared to the Elixirs....ONLY Elixirs from now on, Thank You...I'm ordering three more sets right now!

      Resonator Strings?

      Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Resonator Acoustic Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating (.016-.056):

      This just seem like elixir polywebs sold in a custom gauge. There really doesn't seem to be any difference in the way they are made, just the gauges, and for some reason my A string was phosphor bronze and the rest were 80/20 bronze... Very strange... and not too great. They don't seem to be able to tune very high with the thick e string, and the other strings always seem lose... They sound fine when you put a slide to them... but.... They sound like the normal more affordable, longer lasting Elixir polywebs... and the nano webs have better tone..IF I were you I'd just buy elixir Polywebs... And take a slide to those.

      Elixir comes thru

      Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Resonator Acoustic Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating (.016-.056):

      Take it from me...I've tried 'em all. Looking for the perfect feel, tone, durability. From stainless, nickel, & bronze, to everything in between; I've settled on Elixir's as the best of the best. The TONE is outstanding of my D60. One thing I've noticed is that I can tune way up without breakage. Not that you will, but I do for certain reasons. I know their pricey, BUT they're worth it. They do last & I like to change strings often. So they've given me everything I want & are at about the break-even price point for strings I usually buy! Thanks Elixir
