Elixir

Combat finger grunge!

Gauges: 11-15-22-32-42-52.

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. Nanoweb coating permits strings with the feel, bright tone, and punch of traditional strings.

Elixir Acoustic Guitar Strings are covered with an ultra-thin, 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 five times longer than ordinary strings.

    Elixer Nanos are the best strings out there for me. We all know there's a ton to choose from but with the smooth feel and extended life you just can't go wrong. Pricey to some they are but you really get that back in more ways than one. I prefer the Custom Lights because they feel right. Bending the E - G strings is effortless while the D - E hold a good bottom end. Even with other brands in the past I've preferred Custom Lights because they offer the best playability. If you've never tried Elixir Strings you owe yourself the treat to experience the best. I believe you will stay with them like I have.
    Nice smooth, silky feel to the fingers and longer play time
    Second to none
    A little pricey. With '3X Longer Life" I guess they can charge '3X Normal Price'. Around $10/set would increase sales, I'm sure.

    I adore the sound of the Elixers on my Alvarez acoustic guitar, but the .23 gauge string breaks after about two hours of playing- every time. The other strings seem to be relatively long lived, however.

      Yeah it's good. I use this brand for my Taylor guitars just because Taylors recommendations. After using it 14 times, i feel/hear the set doesnot have its good tone/brilliance so I replace it.

      Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      There was a problem with shipping. When I contacted Musician's Friend, I ended up with a Return Authorization for an item I had not yet received. It was so frustrating that I cancelled the order and drove to my local music store and bought the strings there.

      Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      A comment here said the these strings break easily, mainly the G string. True if you are a hard picker. But that isnt the string fault. Select the string for your style of playing. I use this set and also the regular light set depending on what I am playing. For soft strumming and fills that do not run over other the other music, these strings are great. To me they are a hybrid between the light and extra light gauges. Sure the B G and E are lighter, and more prone to breaking but I have broken strings in this set only twice. And both times it was due to tuning from standard to drop tunings and back several times back to back. Also, install strings PROPERLY. If you dont know how (and a lot of pickers still dont know), go to Taylor guitars web site for info on that. Just a tad lighter that standard light gauge strings and if you barre chord high on the neck a lot, these strings make it easier on the fingers because of less string tension. Its a long life string. I can play every day and still get up to 6 months on a set of these strings with still having great sound. I have one Taylor that has this string on it for a year. Its not played a lot but the coating helps prevent corrosion and degradation of the string. The coating will start to fray when you play a lot but they will still be playable. That is when it is my queue to change strings.

          I have a Taylor 214CE acoustic guitar, these strings give a crisp and clear sound with my guitar. I just wish that the price was a little cheaper.

              I've had these on my guitar for about a week now and minus the fact that the tone is so bright yet that I have to wear sunglasses, they sound really nice. They seem to be a very strong string; however, there is a little resistance when doing bends, hammer-ons, etc.

                The Elixirs manage to sound great and last a long time, probably double or triple the life of a regular set of acoustic strings- great product!!!
