OVERVIEW

Supernatural feel with natural-sounding results.

Thanks to Elixir's OPTIWEB Coating, these nickel-plated steel electric guitar strings give you the performance of natural string – that crisp tone, natural feel and playable grip you know and love – without sacrificing the signature, long-lasting tone life of Elixir Strings. Compared to their POLYWEB Coating and NANOWEB Coating, the OPTIWEB Coating offers the most natural and familiar feel Elixir strings offers. This lightweight coating allows the string to vibrate with less damping, while also having a firm grip, putting you in control of bends, vibrato and sustain.

So choose 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 coat 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?

For a slicker, gentler feel, try a set of electric guitar strings with Elixir's POLYWEB Coating, which also features their warmest tone. Meanwhile, their NANOWEB coated strings sound bright and feel smooth, striking a dynamic balance between POLYWEB Coating and OPTIWEB Coating.

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.

    Don't listen to the other review. The dude must be deaf. These strings have amazing clarity and punch. They feel great as well.

    I bought a couple of sets of these to restring my Gibson Les Pauls. I was really disappointed. They STILL sound like old dead strings. Not as awful sounding as the other Elixirs, but they still sound like old dead strings. Back to the drawing board.

      Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with OPTIWEB Coating, Light (.010-.046):

      I cannot believe how absolutely stunningly close these come to uncoated strings. You get the metallic feeling on the g string against the frets, you get more character out of your guitar, and more "transparency" as I would describe it. I've played and loved nanoweb elixirs for years, these kill them no contest. I'm stunned, Elixir give yourselves a hand, if these last as long as the nanowebs, I'll never buy a different guitar string again. I really hope they make these for acoustics, and if they keep progressing with this super thin coating, they may very well make uncoated strings obsolete, even by tonal standards. These things are so close to the real thing it's unbelievable. Maybe this is just first blush reaction, but I'm absolutely sold.

          These new OptiWeb Elixirs are great. They are not as bright as the Nanoweb models, but they have great tone. They have an excellent feel as well. The NanoWebs feel a little stiff in comparison. They are much nicer on bigger bends and when playing barre chords. The only issue I had was a new set right out of the box turned my fingers dark gray and made my maple fretboard look dirty. If I remember to wipe down the strings before and after I play, it's not a problem.

            I gig every weekend. I would change my uncoated strings every 2 gigs and it was pretty annoying. I thought I would give these a shot. I never did like the nano or poly coating because I thought they sounded dull. The opti web are the closest thing to uncoated tone as I ever came across. And they LAST! I have 6 gigs and another 6 hours of practice on them (over 30 hours total) and they don't have any signs of flaking, wearing, or loss in tone. Try them out.

              Love these strings! Not sure what the dude that doesn't like them heard, but I have these on 3 guitars now and they all sound great and stay that way for a long time. They feel great to. They may cost 2 to 3 x's what other strings cost, but they are well worth it.
