OVERVIEW

Elixir Nanoweb wound acoustic guitar strings are sheathed in a thin polymer coating that retains a natural feel while protecting the windings from the gunk that shortens their life and ruins tone. The coating gives them a smoother feel and reduces finger squeaks. 11-52.

Last 3 to 5 times longer than uncoated strings.

A lot of reviewers have experienced some discomfort with the factory-installed Elixir 16052 Light gauge strings on many of their guitars esp.on the treble side. My new Taylor 114ce came with Elixir 16052 Light gauge strings. The high E (.012) and B (.016) were tough on my fingers. The Elixir 16027 Custom-Light is more comfortable (.011) and (.015) without sacrificing tone or volume. I purchased a cheap set of Ernie Ball strings just to change out the E & B before investing in the higher priced Elixirs. Here's a tip: the Taylor website has a video on how to change strings-take a refresher and view it especially the part on "stretching" the strings after the install and prior to final tuning. It is very helpful and the strings will stay very close to pitch when done. BTW my Taylor GS Mini Mahogany came with Elixir 16102 Medium gauge (.013-.055) but it is very comfortable probably due to the shorter scale length. Hope that helps!

I've been using elixers for around 2-3 years now on my Seagull Artist series. They get a wonderful defined high end. The lows aren't anything to speak of. One thing I really can't stand about them is how fragile they are. They are incredibly easy to break. The feel of them is great, I've had the bass strings on my bass for over a year and still have great tone! But I think that the fuller tone of CHEAPER strings(d'addarios etc.), not to mention the strenght of them, gives them an advantage over the Elixers even with the long life they have.

      Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Custom Light Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      Started using these on a Taylor GS-mini. Was so impressed I outfitted my straight acoustic Martin D-18 with them. I love the way they let the instrument sing. I play at home a lot and it nice to have really good sound without messing with electronics. Recently added a Taylor 512 CE to my pool and immediately replaced the strings with these. They work well with the Taylor Expressions-2 system and can be used in small venues producing an amazing sound.

        Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Custom Light Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I got a new 2014 Breedlove Stage Concert on Stupid Deal and figuring the strings have been on the guitar for quite a long time I decided to go with these Elixir's. They did not disappoint. Tone was excellent and they were quite easy to tune with the onboard tuner.

            Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Custom Light Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

            First time I've used these strings, was experimenting w/ different guage strings. I play acoustic fingerstyle and lights were a little too heavy, ultralights too light but these custom lights are just right. The tone on these strings is excellent, good balance and everything crisp and clear. Can't say much about the longevity yet but my overall first impression of these strings was very positive, will definitely continue to buy them.

            Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Custom Light Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

            I've been using Elixir strings since 2004 when my Alvarez acoustic came with them. For the price and quality you can't beat these strings. The harmonics and tonality sound great especially for Nanoweb Custom Light's. Deep rich bass and mids, the lows especially sound good for folk and grunge type playing. Been playing guitar since 1992 and out of all strings these are the ones for me.

              I've played music for 30 years, but just started using Elixir's a few years ago. I bought a set of the old strings I use to use. Man could I tell a difference. The strings felt like they were cutting my finger tips. The coating on the Elixirs are well worth the difference in price. Great for beginners or professionals. Makes picking enjoyable & can pick much longer.

                Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Custom Light Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                As a gigging guitarist/singer, I've been an Elixir strings user since I was sent a free set during their beta testing period in the early 90's. They blew me away then and they still do, more than 20 years later. The "polyweb" coated strings set new standards for tone and long life, and Elixir set the bar even higher with the release of their "nanoweb" coated strings several years ago. There's a reason Taylor ships all their new guitars with Elixir strings installed and all the other string sellers have been chasing Elixir in the coated strings marketplace. They simply play better, sound better and last longer than conventional strings.

                  I have tried many strings and these are the best so far. I've had them for 3 weeks and they still sound brand new. Better than Ernie ball and all those other brands. Now I don't have to worry about changing the strings so often.

                  Great string, great sound, great life! I have been playing guitar for about 12 years or so and Elixer is always the trusted name that I choose. I have a Kona acoustic that I installed a Fisher pre-amp on and with Elixers, the sound is amazing!

                    These Phosphor Bronze custom lights are a fine mix of pliable action and rich tone. Best on solid wood but they will light up your laminates too.
