OVERVIEW

Fight the grunge!

Gauges 09-11-16-24-32-42.

Elixir Electric Guitar 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! No more gunk and goo. No more DNA evidence. No kidding.

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

Elixirs are the first major innovation in guitar strings in over forty years, and deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what you put them on or how often you play.

FEATURES
  • Gauges 09-11-16-24-32-42
  • Electric guitar strings constructed with nickel-plated steel wrap wire
  • Played for a warm, robust tone
  • Original POLYWEB Coating provides a soft, slick 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)
  • Anti-Rust Plating on plain steel strings ensures longer tone life for the entire set

I bought these to replace factory strings on my new Ibanez Expressionist. I don't care for an unwound 3rd string. Also, they seem stiff. They may work well for you. Strings are a matter of personal preference.

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating, Super Light (.009-.042):

Normally, I go through a set of strings in a week or two. I play daily, though not professionally any more. I do play for audiences, however, several times a month. Normal strings only last a week or perhaps two. The Polywebs last for several months. They just kept playing and playing and...

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating, Super Light (.009-.042):

Before I started using Elixir's Polyweb strings I would have to change my guitar strings literally twice every night. This strings not only last forever but they both sound and feel amazing. Hands down, the best strings on the market. It is a shame however that the Polywebs are only available in only two gauges.

        Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating, Super Light (.009-.042):

        Got a set of these on an LP that I got a while back, they lasted quite a while, but I haven't used them since, as I was a loyal D'Ad user. But I recently got a bad lot of those with a consistently breaking D string, so another player recommended I try them again. So far, so good, but they are slippery, and I find my fingers slipping off on long bends. Still getting used to them.

        Great strings! Probably the best on the market. The polyweb is much lighter than the nanowebs and feels more natural, very easy on the fingers
