OVERVIEW

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

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 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!

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

Steel on the inside, space-age polymer on the outside!


Get more mileage from your strings! Order a set of Elixir's today!

I recently purchased a new Martin DCPA3 and I loved the tone. When it came time to change the strings I got a set of PolyWebs out of my other guitar case and slapped them on. The PolyWebs are soooo much better. That squeeky treble and funky high mid ring is gone. The Martin came new with Life Spans on it and sounded great but these Polys made my Martin sound more vintage and seasoned even though It's a brand new guitar. These PolyWeb strings dont have the high end treble of the LifeSpans but the mid is a lot smoother and the bottom is bigger but not dead or boomy. They give my guitar a sweet and perfectly Balanced tone over all playing styles where really bright strings are only good in 1 style. Overall the Balance of the PolyWeb is super nice and the string squeeks are gone which is good in the studio. Plus they last 3 times as long as other strings so dont worry about the higher cost because its like buying 3 sets for 1. Get a set and play them for a while and you'll be hooked. They are that great. Also I recomend the Poly over the Nano hands down so dont even waist your time, PolyWeb all the way.

I've got a new slogan for Elixir.LONG LASTING TONE ON NON-LASTING STRINGS!I bought a medium set of Nanos for my acoustic to check out the hype. First thing I noticed, was the greasy feel. While it makes for good sliding, it also makes for bad bending and I personally don't like it. They did retain their new 80/20 snap for almost a week instead of the few hours of plain bronze strings. They have a great bright and chimey sound, but because of the coating, you have to pick hard to unearth it, otherwise you sound like strings dipped in candle wax. Which leads me to the problem - if you pick hard, your gonna break them. I did not stretch them after putting them on and let them settle naturally. Still, before two weeks had passed, I had broken the g and d strings. What's the point in making strings with long lasting tone, when the strings themselves don't last?! Medium strings should handle enthusiastic picking. I know the fault is not in me or my guitar, because I have never broken a D'Addario string, so it's possible to make them strong. I'm not entirely happy with the sound of D'Addario EXPs though, bad note separation and weak bass, so I began experimenting. I will never buy Elixir again. Dean Markley Alchemy range will be the next thing I'll try.

                      Every instrument has its on personality and a reliable set of stings like the ones I purchased make a musician more relaxed each time the instrument is picked up to play.

                        I read about some other reviewers breaking the E and G strings. I have never had this problem. In fact I cannot remember the last time that I broke a string.
                        I perfer the Elixers over Martin's Lifespan. The Elixers give my D 28 Martin the sound that I want plus they last for a long time.

                              So, I don't believe these strings are as good as D'Addario. I don't hate them either. My local guitar shop, and Musician's friend were out of D'Addario. For Electric, Elixer is the way to go, but for acoustic... it just isn't quite as good in my opinion. However, they do work, I do appreciate the workmanship, but I feel they lack an edge that D'Addario gives you.
