OVERVIEW

Combat twice as much finger grunge.

Gauges: 10-13-17-26-36-46.

Nanoweb coating permits electric guitar strings with the feel, bright tone, and punch of traditional strings. Elixirs are the first major innovation in guitar strings in over forty years, and they deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what you put them on or how often you play.

Elixir Plain Steel Strings are covered with an ultra-thin, 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!

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

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

I own a modest RG model Ibanez. I tried using other brands, but the strings would get stretched and go out of tune because of the floating tremolo. The Elixer strings are strong enough to stay in tune for months. I usually never have to tune up again after the initial stringing and tuning.

These strings do rust. However, it takes up to a year for that to happen and I have been known to leave one set of strings on for over a year, because they last. I have never had one of these strings break.

The sound quality is really superb. I haven't compared them to too many other strings. I'll leave the deeper analysis to someone else.

The only downside might be if you like to do really large bends. These aren't the easiest strings to bend. I recommend that everyone try them at least once. You could never know what you're missing if you don't try them.

3 stars is average.

I'm using this set on one of my guits and their 11s on another. Nickel DRs and Mangans on the rest.

These strings are OK. These strings are great when life expectancy is low due to humidity/sweat/corrosion. They are also good when you want to avoid finger screeches (eg recording). IME they break more easily than DRs. They also cost more than the DRs. They sound good.

    Comments about Elixir Light Nanoweb Electric Guitar Strings 2-Pack:

    It's a good string. No so bright as a D'Addario, but "D'Addario" bright takes just 2 days, and Elixir's sound holds for a month. If you are just a weekend player, your strings will probably play well up for 3 months. It's expensive but, for me, it definely worth it.

    PS: I also tried coated strings from D'Addadio (didn't like) and Rotosound Nexus (terrible - it came moody and rusty. I tried to contact Rotosound Customer Service but it didn't answer me). I'm curious to test Cleartone.

        I tried Elixir nanoweb acoustic strings some three years or so ago. Liked them so much I had to try the electric nanowebs on my strat. There again, Grate tone and longevity. So you guessed it, had to try the bass strings. WOW!! I am 100% absolutely sold on the ELIXIR strings. Thanks again for handling such an awesome product.
