OVERVIEW

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.

Combat twice as much finger grunge.

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.

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.

          I have been using these strings, almost exclusively, for over ten years now. When I can catch them on sale for about six bills a pack, I get several. They do not rust, period, no dark stripes on my fingertips, ever. Literally six months to a year of putting them on, they still play and sound fine. I guess one can figure, I recommend them.

              Been dealing with Musicians Friend for over 25 years, probably more.
              Greatest company for music. Big fan of Yngwie, saw him
              many times in concert but the most memorable was
              at a Musicians Friend Store.. Wow! Up close and loud! Great !

                  These strings are great! They have a very long life without corroding or losing tone. The nanoweb coating makes them feel much better than conventional strings. It makes them feel so smooth and easy on the fingers compared to others. I almost can't stand playing normal strings anymore.

                  I have been using these strings for several years now on the recomendation of a fellow fabulous guitarist. They have been everything I could expect of a string. The retain their clear crisp sound and they last forever without losing their resilience. I can't even remember the last time I broke a string.
