OVERVIEW

Funky fingers? No problem.

Gauges: 45-65-80-100.

Nanoweb coating permits electric bass strings with the feel, bright tone, and punch of traditional strings. Elixirs are the first major innovation in bass 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 Nanoweb bass strings are covered with an ultrathin, 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 5 times longer than ordinary replacement bass strings.

      Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Light Bass Strings:

      The Elixer Nanoweb Light bass strings are perfect for long scale basses. They sound amazing, reduce finger squeaks, and last for an extremely long time. The sets are always consistent and have a great feel. Highly recommended.

          Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Light Bass Strings:

          I had never heard of Elixr until I bought an Ibanez that came with them on it, and I was super impressed. They sounded great, and I could achieve any tone I tried to get. I first wanted a nice twangy tone for slap and it was glorious. Then I wanted something for just long notes that didn't stick out and these strings just let you get whatever sound you want. And the tone does not change at all from the time you put them on to the time you take them off. I had a set on my bass for a year of constant playing and was amazed. These strings are worth every penny. The only small complaint that I have, that wasn't major enough to be a con, is the nano-web coating after about 8 months starts to come off slightly where I play. I only play with my fingers so. I strongly recommend these.

              Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Light Bass Strings:

              These are great strings that last forever. I get pain in my right finger joints when I play a lot. Elixir strings has dramatically helped the pain go away. They're slippery so there is less strain on the fingers. Seems weird, but its true.

                    If there's one product that I wished to be endorsed by it's Elixir strings. I started using Elixirs years ago after finding that a lot of brands were rough on my fingers and didn't have longevity. So I switched over and have been happy with this product ever since. Plain and simple these are great strings buy them, use them...you won't be sorry!!

                    The best strings out there.....period!

                    I've strung my basses with Elixirs for the last 6 years and they're just the best. If you're looking for tone that lasts, then get these strings. Until they some other company comes out with better strings, I'll continue to use Elixirs.
                    Great tone that lasts for a long time!
                    Nanoweb coating does come undone as time goes by.
                    For some, they may be a little pricy but in the long run, it's worth it.

                    I put them on every bass.

                    Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Light Bass Strings:

                    I fell in love with these strings after playing them on my Ibanez SR. They are so smooth, in feel and in tone. DRs felt like rusty barbed wire in comparison. Their tone is so much clearer than anything else I've ever played. They work as well on HiFi active basses as they do vintage passives and everything in between. My only complaint is that they last almost TOO long, I never get to experiment with different gauges. Going on 4 months and I have not noticed any deterioration in tone or clarity.

                    I have a set of these with an Elixir .130 taper wound B string on my Fender Jazz Bass and they are the best strings money can buy. It is really worth the extra money because they last so much longer. I have had the same set on for over 9 months and they still sound great.
