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. 11-52.

FEATURES
  • Gauges .011-.052
  • Acoustic guitar strings constructed with phosphor bronze wrap wire
  • Played for a dynamic balance of rich, full-bodied tone and sparkling high-end clarity
  • Ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating provides a traditionally textured, "uncoated" feel Patented coating technology protects against common corrosion, extending tone life longer than any other brand’s coated or uncoated strings (Elixir Strings player survey)

A lot of reviewers have experienced some discomfort with the factory-installed Elixir 16052 Light gauge strings on many of their guitars esp.on the treble side. My new Taylor 114ce came with Elixir 16052 Light gauge strings. The high E (.012) and B (.016) were tough on my fingers. The Elixir 16027 Custom-Light is more comfortable (.011) and (.015) without sacrificing tone or volume. I purchased a cheap set of Ernie Ball strings just to change out the E & B before investing in the higher priced Elixirs. Here's a tip: the Taylor website has a video on how to change strings-take a refresher and view it especially the part on "stretching" the strings after the install and prior to final tuning. It is very helpful and the strings will stay very close to pitch when done. BTW my Taylor GS Mini Mahogany came with Elixir 16102 Medium gauge (.013-.055) but it is very comfortable probably due to the shorter scale length. Hope that helps!

I've been using elixers for around 2-3 years now on my Seagull Artist series. They get a wonderful defined high end. The lows aren't anything to speak of. One thing I really can't stand about them is how fragile they are. They are incredibly easy to break. The feel of them is great, I've had the bass strings on my bass for over a year and still have great tone! But I think that the fuller tone of CHEAPER strings(d'addarios etc.), not to mention the strenght of them, gives them an advantage over the Elixers even with the long life they have.

    I normally play D'Addario but thought I'd try these on my Takamine acoustic this time. I like them a lot and will buy them again.

            I have not used the Elixirs long enough to comment on their longevity, but early on they seem to have excellent tone, take little re-tuning after installation and sustain very well.

              I've tried all the Elixir acoustic strings for my 210 Taylor. From 13's to 10's. 80/20 Bronze and Phosphor Bronze. And a whole bunch for other brands. I settled on these Elixir custom light .011-.052. To me they are better fingering and sound. Bass and treble balance. No other strings for me, this is it.

                      So far I like these strings a lot on my Takemine GS series Cedar top. The custom gauge for me is a happy medium between playability and tone. I strung my son's acoustic with these as well and he is liking them also. They are also quiet. Not a lot of squeaks and string noise coming from them.
