OVERVIEW

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. 12-56.

I cannot praise these strings enough. One set lasts me 5 months, easy. Granted that i play electric more than acoustic, but if i played my acoustic more often (as in an hour every day), it would probably be between 3-4 months, although don't take my word on that. Like another reviewer said, these strings really do bring out the best in your guitar. they make my epiphone acoustic (which is alreaedy a decent instrument) compete with my friends' taylors. the sound is a little lacking in bass, but that's the guitar. with my latest set, i broke a couple of strings (my fault) and replaced them with uncoated d-addarios. whoever says that d'addarios are superior to elixirs are either crazy or ignorant. the evidence is in my guitar. already, after a few days, the d'addarios have gotten dull in both color and tone, while the much older elixirs still sound bright as ever. the reason why i gave it a 4.5 for value is because these strings are quite expensive, but they are pretty much worth it. buy some!!!

I purchased 2 sets of these strings for acoustic fingerpicking using fingerpicks. I expected them to be the best strings ever made, due to the advertising. Both sets wore out terribly within app. 3 weeks. Not just wore out, but several strings had to be replaced. I have gone back to using D'Addario 80/20s, which sound great and last longer. I was disappointed with the Nanowebs.

Unsealed packaging

Comments about Nanoweb Light Medium Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

Thought they were going to be in sealed pack, but they were in individual paper packs, in cardboard. So not sure on the shelf life. I bought specifically because I read they were sealed. Not true.

        been using elixirs for years and usually use light phospher bronze but my 815ce taylor came with medium guage and i replaced with lights. After going back to medium lights i see why they send them with mediums from the factory. Another reason would be the fact that its a jumbo so more tension on the guitar would produce greater vibration and movement out of the larger top!

                      I was not impressed with the sound of these strings at all. They sound like a piece of rubber muffled over the strings. For the price and quality I will never buy these strings again. Out of all the coated Strings I would recommend Clear Tones. These strings seem to flake horrible and seem very uncomfortable after a few days of play when the plastic comes off.

                        I've been playing music for over 50 years and have used these strings since they came out. I continue to try others occasionally but always come back to Elixers...Nothing else compares, AND they maintain a good crisp sound longer than any other strings.
