OVERVIEW

Gauges: 10-10-14-14-23-09-30-12-39-18-47-27.

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 Nanoweb 12-String 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.

Combat finger grunge!

Played 12 string since 1969. I've had cheap 12 string guitars all the way through to my current one which is a Martin D12-28.

I've used so many different sets of strings I've forgotten over half of the manufacturers.

Elixirs have been my strings of choice for the last 6 years and are utterly unsurpassed by anything else I've tried. They are superb. I string them with confidence using the method described in Martin's Dave Doll video. They tune up and maintain their tuning whether tuned to pitch or set a step or two down.

They ARE expensive, especially in UK, but when you know you are getting this kind of consistency, longevity and quality, you can order with confidence.

I enjoy the sound and longevity. I especially like that they stay in tune during a set. I do not like the the G string 023 keeps breaking at the bridge even after applying graphite. Elixer sent 4 replacement strings but changing this string every week is getting old. Problem is I have a Breedlove that does not use bridge pins, but these strings should still handle the tension

      Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Light 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      My son gave me my first set of Elixir strings. I gave him a hard time for spending so much on a set of strings. I told him all strings are about the same and just to buy the cheapest like I did. He put these strings on my acoustic and told me to watch and see how long they maintained their "new" brightness. He was right! They sound like new forever! Even on my guitars that sit out on stands in my living room exposed to dust, temperature swings, humidity, etc. Great strings! I use them on all of my acoustic guitars now.

            makes my gear sound like the pros. nanoweb offers rich broad tones, whether for solo work or playing with groups. i get best results with celloid hard pick too. good for finger pick style, keeps in tune when new.

                    Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Light 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                    My ONLY negative comment, is that the ultra-light guage of 12-string set isn't available at MF. In my opinion, if you intend to play rhythm guitar on 12-string w/ bar chords, you NEED those ultra-light guage strings regardless of brand.

                    I've played all kinds of guitars (mainly, rhythm) for ~30 yrs. I discovered Elixirs ~15 yrs. ago, & have been hooked on them ever since. If they make a set that fits an instrument I need to string, I'll make a dive avoiding any other brand. The tone is always excellent, and the durability top-notch. I haven't found a genre yet that doesn't benefit from the sound of Elixirs. I love the fact I don't need to clean the strings before putting the instrument away. Saves me a LOT of time & effort. I've never had an Elixir string break. (Except of course, the one time I was drunk, my B string was flat, & I kept cranking the E tuner trying to raise the B... Hee, hee, hee! The laugh was on me.)

                    A final comment: I found that using Elixir electric guitar nanoweb strings was THE solution for making my banjitar sound excellent both acoustically & amplified, as well as resolving playability issues re. a "dead spot" on the fretboard.

                    Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Light 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                    I have been testing the Phospher Bronze Custom Light guage Elixir strings on my Fender acoustic for 3 months now and they still sound beautiful. I have played 24 shows on the same set without a single incident. I can see some wear starting to show but the sound is still flawless.
                    My only complaint is with my dealer here in town who charges more than twice what MF charges which means I have to order them to save money...not that it is a problem, it's just inconvenient that I can't buy them locally at a reasonable cost.

                    I just purchased a Washburn 12 string the other day and already ordered a set of the 12's for it. That review will be coming at a later date.

                      Playing twelve strings means a wider neck and more "finger power". I had extra light strings on it last time and found them easier to play.
