Last 3 to 5 times longer than uncoated strings.

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.


Great sound. They feel good. And they last a long time. Order your Elixirs today.

    I switched from using elixir phosphor bronze acoustic lights to phosphor bronze custom lights. I play a lot and have been experiencing some left hand fatigue even though the action on my guitars are low. I tried extra lights, but they were too delicate-I tended to overplay them with aggressive strumming. But the custom lights are just right! Noticeable less tension on strings, no more fatigue in my left hand and they sound bright and smooth in phosphor bronze. I string up my taylor 814ce (standard string length 25.5") and my T5 custom maple (short string length 24.74"). Thanks elixir!

    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:

    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.

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

      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.

            I love to tone with these strings. I have been using Elixirs for about 4 years and am very pleased with how long they last. I wish they made some a little lighter though. The plain strings are hard to bend.

            I usually use Extra Lights, but for my kid's acoustic Parkwood, I got these with a little heavier bottom.

            One of my favorite sets of strings

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

            I have been a huge fan and avid user of Elixir Strings for about 5 out of my 10 years as a guitar player. I have primarily used the Polywebs. I love the overall Elixir Experience. The combination of tonal longevity, durability and feel made me fall in love with playing the guitar all over again. Elixir provides a very focused set of strings pack after pack and I have never been disappointed. I decided to give the Phosphor Bronze set a try as phosphor bronze strings were what I was using when I was learning to play the guitar. I always loved the warmth of phosphor bronze and I thought, if Elixir makes great strings then their Phosphor Bronze must be awesome. I put them on my guitar and did not like what I heard at first which was too many mids coming through. However, after a month or two I grew to love them. I found that once they broke in, they were incredible and made themselves at home on my guitar. The bass notes are very focused, the treble is sweet and smooth, bright, but not overbearing. Elixir always delivers an even and equal eq across the board and the tone is always genuine, never artificial or shallow like some other brands. They are great for strumming, excellent for finger picking, tapping, popping, they work incredible for all of the alternate tunings I do. They get the job done. And the bonus is that they always sound and feel brand new for incredibly long period of time. Not to mention they look great!

            great tone length

            By Andy-aOf6u

            from Undisclosed

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

            I have had nanoweb and polyweb coated bronze elixirs in the past, but I wanted to give the phosphor bronzes a try. What a difference it makes! I've been playing for two years now, normally about an hour or two every day. For me, the polyweb strings wore out within 2-3 weeks. Nanoweb bronze lasted about a month before losing its tone/coating wearing off. The phosphor bronze has lasted almost four months without going dead! I will never go back to regular strings, phosphor bronze only. Their sound is very unique and clear. Get these if you can put in the couple dollars extra over regular elixirs because they will last longer! (at least in my experience)
