OVERVIEW

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

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.

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 tried Elixir strings several years ago and literally cut them off my D35 Martin they sounded so bad. Recently playing a friends D35 Martin, I noticed how warm the phosphor bronze strings sounded. They had just the right mix of clarity and softness making it easy to harmonize vocals with the music. Unlike the tinny sound of most phosphor bronze strings used for volume in Bluegrass, these offered warmth that did not override the vocals. I checked the setup and found it identical to my own. She told me they were medium, Phosphor Bronze, Nanoweb, Elixir strings. I decided to try them again and this time they worked. I may have put Polyweb 80/20 Bronze strings on the first time but it is for sure these are not that first set I tried. The sound is rich and so far so good. I gave them three stars because, until I play them a while, I will not be able to really give an accurate account of their longevity in operation or sustaining tone. After using them for a while, I will update my evaluation of them.

                          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.
