OVERVIEW

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'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..

    Comments about Elixir Extra Light Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    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.

    Comments about Elixir Extra Light Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    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.

      Comments about Elixir Extra Light Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      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.

            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.

              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.
