OVERVIEW

Combat finger grunge!

Gauges: 12-16-24-35-45-56.

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 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.

      I used to play a too hard and loud on my acoustic and would often break a string even using heavy weight. After I got a good amp and began to plug in I switched to light strings for tone quality. But I fount that the light strings just didn't have the bass umph I was looking for. I often play stand-alone and really need that low end to fill in. Someone at a local guitar store suggested these strings and wow! Great tone quality and flexibility of the light strings, but with a beefier low end. They work amazingly well. And that along with the Elixir quality and longevity. I had a friend guitarist pick up my guitar and just rave about the sound and he was shocked to find out that the strings were nearly a year old. I see no reason to ever go back to another string style or brand. These fit my purposes perfectly.
      The price is higher than other brands, but well worth your money. You won't regret it.

      My acoustic guitars are a 1965 Gibson J50 and a Martin HD28 2006. I usually use Martin medium gage strings but I decided to give these a try based on the reviews already posted here. I replaced a 2 month old set of martins on my D28, which were past their prime, with a set of these. The old Martin strings sounded as good or better than a new set of Nanoweb Elixir strings. Disappointing to say the least. I then replaced the Elixir strings with a set of light gage Martins that I had laying around. What a difference! No more elixirs for me.

          This is the first time I have used Elixir strings, and I am very impressed. The tone quality and feel are great. They are not as hard on my fingers as my old strings were. Time will tell how they hold for me, but I am very pleased so far!

            Replaced Medium Martin Strings on my booming concert jumbo Epiphone EJ 200CE and Martin D-16 (fan-freaking-tastic picking guitar!!) with these strings ... big big difference! Playability time between sets is way noticeable! The bass is not too deep and the bright first three strings are pure heavenly in tone. My path toward these strings came from the Aussie pro cover artist, Pete Last. Not sure about other post(s) which have their set "going dull" part, but these strings are worth every penny to me!

              This is the fourth set of Elixirs (over many years) I decided to try again-because I bought a maple bodied guitar that was too bright, and I knew these were strings that went dull in a week or so.
              used less than a day, gave them to a fellow picker to try.
              Way too expensive, as I usually change strings at least once a month, often much sooner.
              I'm sticking with D'Addario EJ16's.

                It's been almost a month. The strings are just now starting to sound better. Not sure if they'll be great, but they are tough!

                Great Balance of tone and longevity

                By Steven Duitsman

                from Illinois

                Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Light Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                For me, the compromise of having the bottome strings Medium and the top strings light work well with my style of playing and for my guitar.
                I have tried many different strings over the years for my Taylor 914. I keep going back to the Elixir. I feel that the 80/20 bronze sound better than the phosphor bronze on my guitar.

                I am not a professional but do play in a praise band regularly, plus in another band that plays a lot of acoustic rock from the 60s and 70s.

                I knew that I did not want to go to Medium strings because I do a lot of finger style but I do strum as well. I found that the light medium strings to work well with my style of playing. The top 3 strings are from a light set, and the bottom 3 are from a medium set of strings. When I strum or pick hard I do not have as much fret noise on the lower strings, but the top strings are still subtle and suitable for finger style playing.

                These were a great find.
                Have always had good luck with Elixir
                cost 2 times as much as regular strings but the tone last at least twice as long. So if you are critical of your sound, these are worth it.

                Best Strings on the Market

                Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Light Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                When I bought my Martin HD-28V, before I took it home, I requested that we replace the Martin strings (which came special order straight from the factory with the guitar, so those strings fairly new), with the Elixir Light Medium gauge. The guitar playability and sound noticeably improved, even the guy at the guitar store decided to change all the strings on the other Martin guitars to these particular Elixirs, because of the sound, playability and longevity. I find the Light-Mediums to be a terrific balance of weight and tone. Lasts incrediblly long!! It's amazing. And a major bonus - I no longer have to put up with the shreaking squeaks when sliding.
