OVERVIEW

Combat finger grunge!

Gauges: 9-11-16-26-36-46.

Nanoweb coating permits electric guitar strings with the feel, bright tone, and punch of traditional strings. Elixirs are the first major innovation in guitar 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 Plain Steel Strings are covered with an ultra-thin, 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!

In addition to an ultra-thin grunge-resistant tubular coating on the wound strings, Nanowebs now have a revolutionary Anti-Rust plating on the plain strings to extend their life too.

Most players report that Elixir Strings keep sounding great 3 to five times longer than ordinary strings.

FEATURES
  • Gauge: .009 .011 .016 .026 .036 .046
    Electric guitar strings constructed with nickel-plated steel wrap wire
  • Played for their bright, vibrant presence and dynamic punch
  • Ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating provides a traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel
  • Patented coating technology protects against common corrosion, extending tone life longer than any other brand’s coated or uncoated strings (Elixir Strings player survey)
  • Anti-Rust Plating on plain steel strings ensures longer tone life for the entire set

I have been using the Elixir .10's for awhile now and I really like their feel and long life. I am starting to really bend the strings on solos so a friend suggested going to .09's. I thought that the sound might be too thin, I like some body and fullness on the high notes. These sound just as good as the .10's on my MIM Tele. Happy with the result, I'll be ordering them again.

I like the sound very much. The only problem I had was with Polyweb coating on the lower strings. I use Fender Light guitar picks, and after a week of non active playing, the coating started to wear down (probably scratched with a pick) in the strumming area above the pickups, like I would use brass or aluminum guitar pick (which I don?t).I assumed that Polyweb coating has more resistance to the strumming. I had the same problem with electric and acoustic guitar sets.Otherwise, the strings last very long, and the tone is extraordinary.

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.009-.046):

I don't know why these got a 3 star overall rating. Ive been using these live and in the studio for years and never had any issues at all. The tone is superb, the longevity is inspiring, they're just great strings. I don't see myself using anything else for a long time.

Best Strings Ever

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.009-.046):

I got a new Ibanez guitar with a set of Elixers and replaced them with another brand. I immediately noted the guitar sounded much better with the old "worn out" Elixers. I took off the new strings and replaced them with a new set of Elixers. They are so much better than any other string I have used in 20 years of playing, it's not even close. They're punchy, loud, chimey and ring a long time. They make other brands sound dead, even when they are new. I have used several sets and have had no problems with the coating coming off. Try em, you won't use anything else.

                I've been using Elixr Nanowebs exclusively for as long as I can remember. I love the tone that stays consistent throughout their life and the fact that they are coated just makes them seem to last forever. I hate changing strings because I have so many guitars. I want to be playing my guitars and not spending half my life changing their strings.

                  I've tried many other brand's of guitar strings and Elixir's are by far the best i've used. They provide excellent long lasting tone, even after 2 months of daily use my elixir's still sound new. If your looking for guitar strings that have a consist long last tone then look no further.

                  I use these because they seem to keep their original brightness as long as I leave them on. I do a lot of concert work, so they get used, and I only change them because I'm afraid they might break if I leave them on too long. So far I haven't broken a single one in years.

                  I've been using these for 5 years and I've never had a problem with the coating coming off. They sound great and last forever, what else do you need? I have an Amer Deluxe Strat and a Gibson Nighthawk and I use these on both and they sound great.

                    Nobody beats Musicians Friend. Where else can you get bottom line pricing and free shipping right to your front door. Elixer strings are great strings, and Musicians Friend makes getting them that much easier.

                    I like the sound very much. The only problem I had was with Polyweb coating on the lower strings. I use Fender Light guitar picks, and after a week of non active playing, the coating started to wear down (probably scratched with a pick) in the strumming area above the pickups, like I would use brass or aluminum guitar pick (which I don?t).I assumed that Polyweb coating has more resistance to the strumming. I had the same problem with electric and acoustic guitar sets.Otherwise, the strings last very long, and the tone is extraordinary.
