OVERVIEW

Combat the gunk factor!

Gauges 12-16-24-35-45-56.

Elixir Acoustic 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.

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

Good for few hours before the D and G strings pop!

By Pastor Jdh

from Florida

Comments about Elixir Light Top/Medium Bottom Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

These strings are worthless if you play lead. I tried over five packs of these with the same results. First of all they are not as resounding as regular strings, because of their coating I assume. But worst of all they are the weakest strings I have ever used. Within two hours of playing time the D or G always breaks and whichever goes first the other is soon to follow. I have even tried playing very light, changing picks and constantly keeping in my mind that they are very sensitive and not only does it ruin the playing experience but it makes no difference because they are going to break anyway. They may be better for a back up player who plays softly but for a strummer who is leading they are worthless. One good thing is that the wound E and A strings last forever and stay bright for months. I leave them on my guitar and just use Martins for the rest of the strings and change the Martin's when they get dull. so if you just buy the E and A wound strings I give them a 5 star rating otherwise they are terrible.

great feel and sound, breakage

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Elixir Light Top/Medium Bottom Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I was happy to read ALL of the other 'breakage' reviews so that I knew my guitar was NOT defective. Simply put, these are great sounding and great feeling strings. I REALLY like them. Here is the problem: the D and G ALWAYS break during my gig. Like another review I read, I too have about nine new packs of Elixirs with just one or two strings missing. IF you are a quiet player and NOT a hard strummer you probably won't break a string and I encourage you to try these strings. Elixir could persuade me to come back by annoucing publicly they fixed the defect and will replace/sell individual strings. Until then I will have to go with another brand that will either last until I replace the entire set or that sells individual strings.

on the beach in Florida

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Elixir Light Top/Medium Bottom Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I play five days a week on the beach in South Florida. Before I found elixir, I had to change strings every four days or the salt air had turned them to dead sounding, rust covered, finger ripping wires. Elixir strings last at least twice as long as any other string out there.

Not bad

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Elixir Light Top/Medium Bottom Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

These strings will keep a pretty bright tone IF they last a long time... Quite a few players I know have the same problem with them, though. The first three strings seem to break quite often, and it doesn't seem to be due to strumming habit. I've recently switched to a different string band because they break so often and I like the tone of noncoated strings better. Be prepared to buy singles if you do lots of gigs with these things. Overall, they have a pretty good sound. I'd recommend them.

I have tried a lot of different strings, but these seem to last longer and have a better sound when playing live.

The only strings I put on my guitars.

By lodestar

from Wisconsin

Comments about Elixir Light Top/Medium Bottom Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

When I purchased my Taylor 814CE, the feel and sound of the strings was the best I had ever felt and heard. I wrote to Taylor Guitars and asked what strings they used and they said they put Elixir strings on their guitars. That was good enough for me. I only put Elixir Polyweb Lights on my guitar. I have to say that when they were not available one time, I did try out the Nanoweb and was disappointed - not the same warm, rich sound. Not bad, but not what I wanted. The Elixir Polyweb Lights are wonderful. Other musician friends have commented that my guitar sounds so much better than theirs, and part of that is that the guitar is terrific, but I have to say that the strings make a big difference. I put them on my Gibsons, Washburns, Epiphone, and Martin. The only ones I will use.
