OVERVIEW

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.

A solution to gunky strings!


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

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.

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..

    Heavy strings on my acoustic guitar prevented me from playing long periods of time.
    Extra Light Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings solved that problem.

            These strings sounded terrible. Plink plunk, no chime at all, like a banjo. Replaced them with Martin silk and phosphor, way better.

              I like to keep my guitars as close to factory/point of purchase stock as possible. I did go one gauge lighter for better playability being a singer/strummer and not having to worry about string breakage! Where I live music stores are few and far so now I rely Musician'sFriend for all my future musical needs.

              Thank goodness I ordered 2 packs of strings. I wanted to put these on due to reviews I have read about being easier on the fingers. I am a novice. I did break the G string upon install, but blame myself for too fast of a tightening or whatever.
              These are easier on my fingers an ring out just fine. I like and will order more for next time.

                I've been using Elixer's medium polywebs on my accoustic for years, just assuming they were the best choice. As I age, my hand strength has decreased, so a freind suggested the Extra Lights. I balked, thinking, "No, those will sound tinny with no bottom." Wrong. They sound great, and are much easier to sound at the first fret. Try em, you'll like em.

                  I use both Nanoweb and Polyweb Elixirs. I have found both to be top quality, lasting about 3 times longer than other brands. They sound great, feel good and are priced right for the amount of time they last.
