OVERVIEW

Get a grip on the string funk factor.

Gauges: 13-17-26-35-45-56.

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!

Nanoweb coating permits strings with the feel, bright tone, and punch of traditional guitar strings. Elixirs 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 you put them on or how often you play.

Most players report that Elixir Strings keep sounding great 3 to 5 times longer than ordinary strings.

I am a full time musician, and I have used these strings on various acoustic guitars for many years. It is true that they don't sound quite as bright as uncoated strings when you first put them on....they sound more like new strings that have settled in after being played for about an hour. The cool thing is that they keep that sound much longer than any other brand of string I have ever tried. With uncoated strings I can only get about 8-10 hours of use before they need to be replaced, and the tone starts to deteriorate almost immediately. The Elixirs keep the same tone, even after being played on several gigs. I usually get at least 2 or 3 weeks of extensive playing before I replace them. Even then the tone is still pretty good, I just start to notice the intonation changing a bit. I recently put on a different brand of uncoated strings on my Taylor because I was in a bind and the local store was out of Elixirs. I recorded one song in the studio, and did two gigs, and the strings are totally shot. I am off to the store today to get more Elixirs! As far as Elixirs breaking.......I have never broken one! For those that claim that Elixirs break easily, I would suspect it is your guitar setup or your playing style that is the problem. I used to break strings often in my early days. Proper set up and improved playing technique solved that, way before I started using Elixirs!

I play an Ovation that has pretty low action. My cousin gave me a set of Nanowebs to try out because the Martin SPs that I had been using were tearing up my callouses. The smoothness of the Nanowebs were awesome and the lack of squeak when I moved up and down the fingerboard was great. I play about 3-4 hrs/day and am used to my strings lasting longer than a month and a half. That's how long the G lasted. It broke right in the middle of practice. Then the D broke 10 min before church started. The Nanowebs had a brightness and brilliance that can't be duplicated with Martin SPs or D'Addario Phosphor Bronze, but they also have strange chintzy, twangy highs. I'll play with them again if given to me, but I won't pay for them.

    they last a long time. I had a guitar that I did not use for about 5 years took the guitar out of its case and tuned it up and it played like the day I put the guitar away. the e string did finally give up its life a week latter.

    Comments about Elixir Medium Nanoweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I LOVE these strings. I play for hours at a time usually every day. These strings are the longest lasting and best sounding strings I have ever used. I was using Octacore strings on my Gibson J-100 Xtra and they were way too "bassy" for a large body guitar. I tried D'Addario strings but they only survive through a few hours of hard playing. A friend of mine who is an amazing pro musician recommended these strings and I have not played anything else since. They cost a little extra but are well worth the cost. They perform better than some strings I was paying much more for.

          I am self taught, play a 3/4 size electric acoustic guitar and needed richer tone.. A friend suggested trying a medium versus the light strings I was using.. So far great choice. Still getting fingers used to in but much, much better tone!

                My Luthier put my first set of Elixer Nanowebs on when he tuned up my Seagull Acoustic. He used medium where I was used to light strings, but they worked fine. I love the bright tone. I can play for 3 to 4 hours without my fingers hurting.
                Great strings. I use them on my electric too.

                  Comments about Elixir Medium Nanoweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                  I've been playing guitar for over a decade and have tried many different brands of strings, but Elixir continues to be my favorite for acoustic strings. After initial tuning, they have consistently rich sound, and can ably handle countless hours of playing. Literally! I am notorious for waiting extreme lengths of time between string changes, and not only do these last the duration until I change them (versus breaking from wear or age, which I have not had happen, over many sets of Elixir acoustic strings), but they maintain very nice playability and bright sound. I play both the Nanowebs and Polywebs, and highly recommend both kinds -- you can't lose with these strings; the're the best I've found. From light, expressive playing to long hours of intense practice, these nimble but sturdy strings can handle any kind of playing over the entire musical spectrum, with beautiful tone.
