OVERVIEW

Fight the gunk!

Gauges 09-10-13-20-09.

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.

Elixir Banjo Strings are covered with an ultrathin, 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 5 times longer than ordinary strings.

FEATURES
  • Gauges 09-10-13-20-09Banjo strings constructed with nickel-plated steel wrap wire
  • Played for their rich, golden tone
  • Original POLYWEB Coating provides a slick, fast 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)
  • Coating also reduces finger squeak

    Comments about Elixir Banjo Strings with POLYWEB Coating, Light (.009-.009):

    It's my first time stringing up the banjo so maybe I did something wrong so I may not be the best judge. It sounds very different . I did it right though I measured from the nut to the twelfth fret and doubled it to place my bridge and kept everything else the same.

          Comments about Elixir Banjo Strings with POLYWEB Coating, Light (.009-.009):

          I've been a loyal customer to Elixer for 6 years now. Never would've thought that they made a set for Banjos. These stings are absolutly phenominal. To be honest, the Banjo was not even mine to begin with, I just decided to do the owner a favor and change his strings for him. So I hope he'll like these.
