OVERVIEW

Combat finger grunge!

Amp up your guitar’s tone life with the same premium electric 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.

Who wouldn’t love more quality playing time between the hassle and cost of string changes?

Engineered to endure, these nickel-plated steel electric guitar strings boast a ton of bright, vibrant presence and dynamic punch. Compared to our original POLYWEB Coating, the ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating allows a more traditionally textured, "uncoated" feel.

For a slicker, gentler feel, try a set of electric guitar strings with Elixir's original POLYWEB Coating, which also feature a warmer tone. 

Of course, the kind of string you play is all a matter of personal preference. Not sure what tone or feel is right for you? Try them out for yourself, and find your new favorite string from Elixir Strings.

NOTE: Your packaging may not reflect image shown as Elixir is changing packaging on this product.

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light/Heavy (.010-.052):

The last set I bought was December 2010! Yeah that is a little long but.. I put them on my electric the 23rd, after a little over a year I packed them away and put on a standard set that lasted about 4 months. The standard strings went dull and I got the same Elixirs back out and and strung them for a second time and they sounded great then and remained. Now about a week ago I finally took them off my electric and what? Put them on my acoustic! They sound really nice, full and warm acoustically and they didn't sound dull before I actually took them off my electric, only the high 'e' didn't survive the last re-tensioning. The exposed string looks surprisingly bright, there's some coating left (all except over the picking area and frets), they were cleaned one time at some point with a very handy oil, Ballistol.

I can hardly remember what they sounded like new, but three years later after being restrung 3 times they still sound good! These strings are strong.
I almost forgot, 10-52s is the best size ever for drop D and work perfect for me in standard tuning as well (I've had them in C standard and drop B before, they take it well enough to play with.)

    Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light/Heavy (.010-.052):

    I've always used regular strings and thought the Elixers were a sham until I played an acoustic that had a set and I was blown away. Fast forward two weeks and I threw them on my Ibanez RG420 and haven't changed them in two months! There's a little wear around the pickups but the rest of the strings are in great shape without any rusting. Great deal if you change your strings every 1-2 weeks like myself

    Simply Amazing

    Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light/Heavy (.010-.052):

    I've searched long and hard for good strings. I used to use Fenders, then I went to Ernie Ball, and then D'Addarios. A Friend recommended Elixirs and another recommended .010-.052 gauge, so I killed two birds with one stone and bought both.These things are great. Just amazing. I put them on and this Telecaster that I have makes me sound like Don Rich. Great tone to start out with that I could never achieve with any other brand. But it gets even better! I've had these strings on for two and a half months so far and they still sound like I just got done putting them on. I play upward of 3 or 4 hours a day, and these things have performed spectacularly. On a side note, people often complain about the nanowebbing fraying where to pick the strings. This does happen, however, it doesn't affect the tone or functionality of the strings at all.A great buy that more than pays for itself.

    I liked 'em

    By John-oDiWM

    Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light/Heavy (.010-.052):

    I've been using theses strings for 6 months now on my main electric. I play anywhere from about 2-6 hours a day and one set lasted about 3 months and just started showing wear. I have Floyd Roses on my guitars with that in mind strings are a real pain to change, I now don't mind because when I do change strings I know it'll be a good while before I have to again. If you want some quality long lasting strings go for these they are pretty awesome!

    Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light/Heavy (.010-.052):

    If you ask me, I believe that Elixer strings in Skinny top Heavy bottom gauge is bound to last much longer than Ernie ball strings (even though they say Ernie ball is the king of strings). Maybe on second thought, you can never go wrong with Elixer strings.

        Tuned to drop C on an Ibanez S. killer tone. Last forever and feel super slick. Might be switching from EB to these permanently!

          besides how bad old strings feel and sound I cant stand the weird odor from corroding strings. is it just me? these strings stay very nice and smooth for a long time versus regular uncoated strings and still sound nice and bright! they take a while to start going bad and dull which is very convenient.

              I got my first electric guitar 6 months ago and it sounded okay. But when I put the elixir strings on it sounded like a totally different guitar. The sound was so much better and it also stayed in Tune longer. The thick bottom strings give a real heavy sound while the the thin top strings make it easy to bend. If I knew how good these strings were. I would have bought them sooner.

              The tone is great. Love the deeper sounds from the heavier bottom strings. These strings last forever. The last set was on my guitar for almost a year and still sounded pretty good.

              I have these on my Dean Caddy and My Gibson USA Explorer. First, I'm a bassist, but play drums and lead guitar on my brothers' recordings. I don't play a lot of lead work or bend much on the lower strings. My rhythms sound nice and chunky with these strings, without EQ-ing. Also these last many times longer than other strings, making them well worth the price. I also use Elixirs on my bass. Best strings by a longshot IMHO.

              Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light/Heavy (.010-.052):

              Just got these in and put them on my Gibson CS336. I don't know what to say, but WOW! I was concerned about the heavy bottoms not fitting in the Faber ABR1 bridge slots, but I did not need any filing...They fit perfect and I now have the low end I have been craving for. What a punchy sound. Its like a whole new guitar. What tone. I will never use any other string or gauge than these Elixir 10-52s.

              this is a great product, i have had a set of these for a long time and never even thought of changing them. there is a great reduction on finger squeaking and they don't go out of tune fast. they also stretch into place nice and fast. i highly recommend you buy at least one set of these.
