Combat string grunge!

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

Elixir Electric Guitar 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! No more gunk and goo. No more DNA evidence. No kidding.

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

Elixirs are the first major innovation in guitar strings in over 40 years, and deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what you put them on or how often you play.


Tired of restringing all the time? Give Elixirs a try today!

    I rated a 4 because they are pretty expensive. I used them long ago and decided I would try them again in case I missed something. I have had a set on my 335 for about a month and they still sound "new" even though they sound sort of broken in when I put them on they haven't lost any sound. I just put a set on my PRS. Several things I have noticed:

    1) They have a very smooth feel, I liked that right away. Some people might not like the slippery feel.
    2) There is less "String Talk" that is you get less fret noise. Also they don't have that annoying sitar sound I was getting from the other strings I was using.
    3) They seem more balanced. Usually I change strings after the low "E" starts sounding dull even if they are holding their tuning. The wound strings seem to be hold up and still have a good tone.
    4) When installing they seem to hold tune better right away. I normally tug on each string and re-tune until they hold, these require less tugging. I'm hoping this will help with tremolo use, it does seem they come back in tune very well.

    I have heard that these string are easier on frets so that frets won't wear as quickly. Time will tell.

    I'll keep using them for awhile. If they last as long as some people say then maybe they aren't that expensive if you don't have to but strings as often.

    Wow the long term good sound, the smooth feel of the strings, the.... Awww dangit I broke one. See.. would you rather break and have to replace a 14 dollar string... or a 3 dollar string?Buy cheaper strings in bulk and youll find that about 12 packs of EB Slinky's will equal 3 of Elixer. And with cheaper strings you dont have to pray that string wont break when your in the zone. And ALSO! The sound quality of EB Strings vs Elixers is pretty darn close.In conclusion, all you hard rockers out there and all you acid fingered people, these aint your bag.

      Comments about Elixir Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

      Greats sounding strings that last a long time and are easy on the fingers. They seem to have a little more tension that the average set which I like but you may not so I thought I'd mention it.

        These are the elixr of life for guitars. Simply the best. Like willy wonka of strings invented these. This company will do fine to keep these on the market, as in my humble opinion they are the best and I've tried everything from dean markley's to ernie balls to high end expensive (more so) than these.

            These are truly the only coated strings that are worth your time. Excellent tone, lasts a long time. What more can you ask. The Polywebs only, not the Nanowebs.

              BEST STRINGS ON THE PLANET

              By Fran Silveira

              from Clarksville TN

              Comments about Elixir Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

              I would highley recommend you purchase these strings.
              I have tried several types of strings from Dean Markley, Dr strings, to fender. the elixir polyweb .10-.046 absolutley rock!!! when i play i don't get the slide sound..the strings sound faniminal. They are a little pricey but then again you get what you pay for. Don't belive me? Try some fender strings, or Dean Markley..i am not longer afraid that i wil cut my pinkey finger off on the high E.. With Elixir strings i can go up and down the neck all day and not worry about anything. I highley reccomend these.
              Simply the best strings you can buy
              Could be a little cheaper but not to bad if you buy in bulk

              Comments about Elixir Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

              These strings are pretty cool. Definitely a different feel from any other strings I've tried. Too soon to really tell whether I'll continue to enjoy them or not, but as of now, I think they're gonna be pretty nice.

              Comments about Elixir Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

              The poly-web Elixir's are great strings. I use the on both my acustic and eletric guitars. The last ones I put on my acustic lasted about five months. I play Ibanez guitars and these stings give me great tone for all types of music I play. They are definatly worth the money.
