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.


Great sound. They feel good. And they last a long time. Order your Elixirs today.

    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 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.

          Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Light Medium Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          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.

                  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.

                        These strings give a good tonal balance for my '92 Takamine G-Series acoustic/electric guitar. They also allow the guitar to project very well which is especially useful when practicing with other acoustic instruments. This way, you aren't 'drowned-out' by the other instruments.

                        The best acoustic strings I've ever used!!

                        I have tried many different brands of strings looking for the best tone, and while some may have a good tone the poor playability and squeaking always kill it for me. Elixirs alway play easier and sound good longer than strings that cost much more. I'm hooked!
                        Great tone, comfortable and quick, easy on the fingers and the last!
                        less string breaking, no tarnishing

                        Purchased these for my Dean V-Coustic, after fitting them on and tuning they made it come alive. These strings really are an improvement, from their longevity to their sound quality. I now put Elixir strings on all of my guitars, and highly recomend them to my friends.
