Elixir

Combat finger grunge!

Gauges: 11-14-18-28-38-49.

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

Elixir Plain Steel 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!

In addition to an ultra-thin grunge-resistant tubular coating on the wound strings, Nanowebs now have a revolutionary Anti-Rust plating on the plain strings to extend their life too.

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

    I may seem a wee bit over-zealous about this, but it simply makes no sense to me why more people do not use these. I adore the vintage tones that so many guitarists seek to acquire, but you do not have to settle for dead, dull, lifeless strings just to be vintage! I bought a brand new Gretsch g5125 hollowbody and was stoked at the complex tones I was getting out of the maple body and the dearmond single coils... but... the first couple packs of strings I tried were dead as a flippin doornail. I tried to deal with it but there was nothing classic or vintage about my immense lack of sustain and "plunky" tone. I was used to using Elixers for my acoustics so I said what the heck lets see if they help. I had already spent a week tweaking the bone nut, refiling grooves, adjusting the bridge and bigsby tailpiece... they all checked out. BAM! the elixers laughed in the face of those crappy Ernie Ball strings everyone uses, or D'Addario or anything else.Bottome line: do it now. forget what everyone tells you and try it! You will hear things in your guitar you never knew were there.

    Grounding issues

    I don't usually write reviews and I have loved Elixirs on my acoustic and still do ... they're simply the best. So it pains me a little to write this.

    I tried the Med. Nano electrics on my 335 style (semi-hollow), and around the same time I had to replace the output jack. After I did this I was getting some noticable noise problems, like a grounding issue. There was a buzz and everytime I touched something metal on the guitar it would quiet down. I assumed it was the jack that I didn't solder it correctly. Long story, short, I tried everything from replacing all my patch cables, new power supplies for my board, redid the output jack about 6 times, etc, etc. It was maddening because nothing was making the buzz go away.

    On a whim, I decided to check the continuity of my guitar with a meter ... and low and behold the low E, A and D strings weren't carrying much, if any, electrical charge. Only 1/2 of my strings were grounded. I changed my strings to uncoated ones and my noise problem disappeared.

    My experience might be isolated to this particular guitar but I'm thinking that this issue might be overlooked or mistaken for something else. I hope I can help out another player.

        Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Electric Medium Strings:

        I play for Churches...rock to everything else! I bought them once and from that point on been a believer. I tend to sweat when I play and regular strings are destroyed after one use. These last me a couple weeks. A few performances and everyday practice. I probably don't have to change them even then but I just want to sound my best.
        By the way, if you are like me and dispise changing strings all the time then these are the ones for you!

                  I've only recently received this order from MSS. I was totally impressed how fast I got them. No doubt the Strings themselves will hold up to what i've come to expect from them

                  Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Electric Medium Strings:

                  I've been playing the guitar for over 25 years. I still play almost every day. I wouldn't suggest any other strings to a fellow musician. I've been very pleased with the Elixir brand. They last longer, and maintain their sound longer, than any other brand I've played. A good string. Like everything else, I wish they didn't cost as much as they do, but that's life as we know it today.

                    These are the only strings I buy. They are smooth as silk and last forever. Buy them if you like a quiet, slippery feel, Skip it if you like string noise.
                    It's all smooth sailing

                    Broke way too easily

                    Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Electric Medium Strings:

                    Had the strings on my strat for less than a week before a string broke. I've never had a pair of any brand break like these did. Wal-Mart's strings can last longer than that set did! Maybe they were just duds, who knows? I'll never buy them again though. There's too many other better quality brands to buy that are not as expensive as these.

                    I'm very much a traditional guy and waited a long time to try these. I'll never go back. Traditional strings often didn't last a 4 hour gig for me; these last a month or more. Never broken one. I still think uncoated strings sound better for about the first 10 minutes you have them on, but it ain't worth it.
