OVERVIEW

Combat finger grunge!

Gauge: .024.

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!

Elixir Polyweb coating permits strings with the feel, bright tone, and punch of traditional strings. 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.

Most players report that Elixir Strings keep sounding great 3 to five times longer than ordinary strings.

Comments about Elixir Polyweb .024 Acoustic Guitar String 4-Pack Singles:

MY EXPERIENCE - My Taylor 614CE came with Elixirs and I absolutely LOVED the sound. However, I've been playing acoustic for 40 yrs and could count on one hand the strings I've broke in that time - EXCEPT ELIXIRS I broke no less than 5 strings within the first year. Twice when I was simply holding the guitar between songs.  I love them, but can't trust them enough to play out. It could be the guitar setup, but c'mpn it's a Taylor. AND No other strings do this. None broken since I stopped.

Comments about Elixir Polyweb .024 Acoustic Guitar String 4-Pack Singles:

I'm going on 27 years of playing and 24 years or so pro playing. I always buy extra G strings in this gauge of acoustic strings because for me they break 1st and well before I break another string. Other players on other or same gauge may break the high E 1st. With regards to other posters comments as to why:

1 Wound .024 G strings have a core (which I don't know the dimension of) which I believe supports more tension then a .012 high E. My belief comes from comparing bend force needed. Try it, almost all other strings are easier to bend in this gauge. If your an electric player, a wound .024 could be a shock.

2. G .024 tension will indent the saddle quicker than other strings which leads to less life before breakage.

2. IMHO, A developed player in most styles will hit a G string more than any other. It's a middle range string.

3. Out of 10 or so acoustics I've owned, 100's I've tried and from what I've read... the G string in a single piezo electric acoustic will be the string most likely to have the least volume. Just the way it is... I know I tend to compensate by hitting the G string harder, leading to less life.

I'm just happy to be able to by coated single strings :)

Comments about Elixir Polyweb .024 Acoustic Guitar String 4-Pack Singles:

I'm here to tell you that the elixer Polyweb G strings, break far more than any of the others. I thought it was cause, I'm steady tweaking on it. I've heard dozens of reasons why the G breaks more often with these elixer's. However, I don't believe there is any rhyme or reason, and even if there is, I dont care, cause I love these strings. Just get some extra G's ... and note that the gauge of your G will depend on the width of strings you are using.... I use the light's, strictly polyweb, so thats .24

At least have easily breakable strings handy

By steelpig

Comments about Elixir Polyweb .024 Acoustic Guitar String 4-Pack Singles:

I find it difficult to believe that just maybe the Elixer G string breaks easily. After all, it is really the high E strings and the B strings that break the most anyway. Even so, according to other people's comments about strings like the G string from Elixer, I better think about buying this 4-pack of Elixer G strings.
