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.

FEATURES
  • Gauges: 11-14-18-28-38-49
  • 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 may seem a wee bit over-zealous about this, but it simply makes no sense to me why more people do not use these. I adore the vintage tones that so many guitarists seek to acquire, but you do not have to settle for dead, dull, lifeless strings just to be vintage! I bought a brand new Gretsch g5125 hollowbody and was stoked at the complex tones I was getting out of the maple body and the dearmond single coils... but... the first couple packs of strings I tried were dead as a flippin doornail. I tried to deal with it but there was nothing classic or vintage about my immense lack of sustain and "plunky" tone. I was used to using Elixers for my acoustics so I said what the heck lets see if they help. I had already spent a week tweaking the bone nut, refiling grooves, adjusting the bridge and bigsby tailpiece... they all checked out. BAM! the elixers laughed in the face of those crappy Ernie Ball strings everyone uses, or D'Addario or anything else.Bottome line: do it now. forget what everyone tells you and try it! You will hear things in your guitar you never knew were there.

Surprised how I don't like these. I suppose taste changes over time. Been a fan of elixir a long time so i decided to pick up a set of these and boy was i disappointed. Yes, they're great they last long but deprive themselves from good tone and dynamics. I guess it's a sacrifice for longevity. Back to uncoated strings for me, specifically nickel plated steel. Stainless doesn't do it for me on the plains. There's a strange hardness too the tone i don't like. I won't be buying these anymore.

    These strings came on my Taylor T5 and I have stuck with them ever since. Their play-ability is excellent and with the Gore-Tex coating, they really last. They are not overly slippery or "greasy feeling" like some coated strings can feel. Good product!

        I started using these probably almost 20 years ago. They are the only ones I will use, period. They have a Long life, consistant tone, resist corrosion. I don't know what else I would use that would be better at a fair price.

              I was playing a Taylor T5Z at Guitar Center and it felt so good. The strings felt like they were sprayed down with that Finger Ease stuff. I did a search on line to find out what strings the guitar came with... these strings. Amazing feel. They have plastic in them so I assume that's where the feel comes from. They sound huge; loaud but not too bright and they last a long time. Killer strings. Buy the .011 to .049 if you're looking for a more electric feel.

                I have been using Elixirs for the last four years or so and here's why. I used to buy the regular EBs but I got tired of the strings rusting and sounding dead after a couple of weeks and having to replace them so much. Now I only change my strings every six or so months and I could probably get away with waiting longer if I wanted to. These strings are very strong as well. I have yet to break a string (broke strings a lot with the EBs) and I do a lot of rough bending when I play. These are consistent, sound almost brand new after six months, and do not go dull. While these don't sound as good as the first two hours of playing a brand new pack of Ernie Balls, they sound 90 percent as good and stay that way. Also, these strings feel very slick and comfortable up and down the neck. Now when I play regular strings on someone else's guitar, they feel rough and unpleasant to deal with. I will never buy any other brand of strings again. Elixirs forever!

                I've had Elixir Nanoweb strings on 3 different guitars and 1 mandolin, and I have been extremely pleased with the longevity and tonal quality of these compared to 'major brand name' strings. They're very consistent and the lighter guage strings are not as prone to breakage as most others. Great product!
