Elixir

A solution to gunky strings!

Gauges 10-14-23-30-39-47.

Enjoy the playing ease of an electric guitar with great note-bending ability. Elixir Acoustic Guitar Strings are the first major innovation in strings in over forty years. And they deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what guitar you put them on or how often you play.

Elixir 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!

Most players report that Elixir Strings keep sounding great 3 to 5 times longer than ordinary strings.


Try a set on your acoustic. We guarantee you'll be pleased.

    i donno if this really is long lasting...i used martin SP before i tried the elixirs. I was told how CRAZY these strings were and longetivity of it. I gotta admit that there's something different about these strings and they seem to be better, but i've broken more than 10 strings for the past 2weeks i played. I RARELY broke my martins...i'm getting doubts on these elixirs..

        Comments about Elixir Extra Light Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        These strings are unbelievable. I have a Martin 0M-28V that sounded great but for some reason was just a little bit harder to play than my other guitars. I put these strings on and couldn't believe it. The action now is so much better. They made playing the guitar effortlessly. I highly recommend these strings.

          Excellent strings

          By Richard Carew

          from Phoenix, AZ

          Comments about Elixir Extra Light Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          I'm only giving them a 9 because I think the Nanoweb Phosphor Bronze strings are a better string .
          For clear bell like tones the polyweb is the way to fly. I would rather spend the extra few bucks and buy the Elixir strings and sound my best (I need all the help I can get!). I just picked up a custom made custom inlayed guitar and these are the strings that are on it. I was going to switch them out with the nanoweb phosphor bronze strings but then I listened to the clear unamplified sound of the strings and it was so sweet. I figured I could wait to change strings until these wear out. Good strings. Good choice. Step up too the plate and get 'em.
          These strings last for more than two months which I find to be true accross the board with Elixxir strings. The best the competition can do is about a month. Good strings. Good choice. Get 'em!
          What more can I say, they last a long time Which means in the long run they are cheper to own.

          Makes Beaters sound Good!

          By Ron-N.yoN

          from APO, AE

          Comments about Elixir Extra Light Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          I've been putting these on my Taylor ever since I got it. I had a beater Johnson and ran out of cheap strings to put on it and decided to put some of these on it. I couldn't believe the great sound that came out of it. I put them on my small travel guitar and it made it louder and sound better. I will use these on all my acoustic guitars from now on.

          Brightest Strings I've Played!!!

          By AC0U51C7

          from Saginaw, MI

          Comments about Elixir Extra Light Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          These strings are great. They are brighter then any other acoustic strings i have ever played with, coated and non-coated. The brightness doesnt fade out as soon as the strings get broken in either. Long lasting and bright for weeks of play. The one drawback is that they arent the cheapest of strings and the poly coating on them flakes off after a few weeks but that can be fixed by wiping off the strings with a rougher cloth every once in a while. Great strings for someone searching for that bright strumming tone.

          Good on an acoustic

          By MrDinkleberry

          from Wichita, Kansas

          Comments about Elixir Extra Light Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          These are VERY good strings. They keep their crisp tone from the moment they come out of the box to the 3rd month they're on the guitar. I tried these out on my electric, to my surprise, I didn't like it. They just don't cut it as electric strings. Although these are the BEST acoustic strings I've ever tried.

          Comments about Elixir Extra Light Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          I have an old Takamine EF-341s Its an 89..I love this guitar for its playability. Tone has always been so so ...sounds great plugged in but sometimes lacked tone acoustic. I am cheap sometimes when it comes to strings...whatever is on sale is my string of the month...I always go D"addario on my electrics but wow I am really enjoying the acoustis tone on my tak with these strings...I found bass that wasn't there and the highs just sing...very nice...I'll spend the extra money again

          Amazing set of strings

          By The Zits

          from Stevensville, MD

          Comments about Elixir Extra Light Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          I just installed these on my Washburn D30S today and I couldn't believe the quality of these strings. I used to only use Martin SP's, because I thought they were amazing too. Well, I went out on a limb here and thought I'd shell out to try out the strings everyone is raving about. I was so impressed with the quality, the sound, and the coat of polyweb, that I think I'm just gonna use these strings for now on. Yes, they are pretty pricey but I think this is the best you can get for strings. Great buy.
