OVERVIEW

Don't let your bluegrass lose its twang.

Gauges 11-15-26-40.

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.

Elixir Nanoweb Mandolin Strings are covered with an ultrathin, space-age polymer tube that contacts the string on the tops of the windings only. They're coated with the patented Nanoweb technology. This leaves the all-important winding-to-winding-to-core space free from the enemies of tone!

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

I had been playing Martin strings on an inexpensive Rogue mandolin. I was not happy with the tone of the instrument and was thinking of upgrading the mandolin. I first tried these strings and I couldn't believe the difference. The tone was fantastic and the playability was great as well. Before you give up on your mandolin, give these strings a try. They are well worth the extra few bucks.

Wouldn't buy them again

They don't stay in tune. The G and D strings sound fuzzy.

      Comments about Elixir Medium Nanoweb Mandolin Strings:

      I've played guitar for about 35 years. I began using Elixir strings about 5 years ago. After trying different brands I've stuck w these and they are consistent, they stay in tune and last forever before loosing sustain and sounding dead. So when I bought my mandolin I bought these for it. Same results as on my guitar. They're awesome strings. If you're thinking of buying some...buy em

          Consistent great quality. For both house concerts to public performances, these strings give the quality that I have come to expect, both for the product and Musician's Friend. I am a longtime customer of Musician's Friend and I appreciate the ratings of individual items. Still a satisfied customer.

            The stock strings on my Rogue A-100 mandolin were only functional. I bought the Martin strings on one broke during installation. I bought these strings and the results are AMAZING. This is now the preferred brand among all my string playing friends.

                    I've used Elixir strings on my guitars from the beginning ( once they hit the correct coating). Now they are producing them for the Mandolin. I can only find them in the nanoweb for the Mandolin and hope they develops a polyweb version (which last longer) The Mandolin strings are very bright and do best on an instrument that is lower to mid range in tone. They work very well on my KM-1000.

                      Comments about Elixir Medium Nanoweb Mandolin Strings:

                      The Mandolin is a second instrument for me, I love to play it but it has time shared with guitar (which also gets Elixirs) and bass (my primary instrument). That being said, my mandolin may sit for days, even a week or two without being played. With Elixirs I don't pick up my mandolin after a hiatus to find the strings are dead. They cost a tad more, but for my use the extra expense is worth it.

                      Before switching to Elixirs I used Gibson "Sam Bush" strings and can find no discernible difference in tone.
