OVERVIEW

Clear, bright tone and easy playing with enough tension to get the most out of your flattop.

Gauges 12-16-24-32-42-53.

Elixir Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings are the first major innovation in strings in over forty years, and deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what you put them on or how often you play.

Elixir Strings are covered with an ultrathin, 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 5 times longer than ordinary strings.

At this price, you can afford a handful. Put some in the cart. It's not like you won't use 'em.

I use to break the G string like everyone else but recently I bought a CA model GX and not only did I not break any strings, I played 8 three hour gigs, inside and outside in Louisiana (and I play pretty hard)and didn't even have to tune it! It's the most amazing combination of guitar and strings I've ever seen! The tone lasts longer than any other coated string on the planet!

So I've been deployed in Afghnistan for a little while now and there's not a whole lot to do but play some good ol' guitar ok? So I had my "el cheapo" acoustic sent to me along with a set of these strings. Let me tell you first that they DO sound amazing. I won't lie there, BUT...I don't know if it's because I have small hands or what, but these things felt like rebar, and I usually play heavier gauges than this on my electrics!! I could barely get the E string to bend 1 octave, and YES I did stretch them. I did that for 2 weeks everytime I broke out the guitar. And another thing, that Polyweb stuff is a joke. I use plain-jane Fender medium picks and that Polyweb stuff peeled off every the pick strikes the strings!! And well, this is my fault, so I can't blame Elixir, but I went to Drop C earlier today and as I tuning back up to Standard, I took the G string up MAYBE 1/2 a step and as I reached for the tuner it popped. And no, I didn't bring it up too fast, I dunno what happened. I think I'll go with Dean Markley next time, sorry. I just don't like plastic stuff flaking off my strings all the time, it looks like crap.

    Lovely strings! Sounds amazing, lasts forever. Medium gauge has slightly more body but brutal on my fingers after a couple hours. Won't use any other acoustic strings!
    Best pricing around only at Musicians Friend!

    Incredibe strings

    Comments about Polyweb Acoustic Light Strings:

    I've been playing professionally for over 50 years and have used many brands of acoustic and electric strings. Elixir strings have bright, even tone across the range of highs and lows and keep that tone over many hours of playing. After years of using Elixir Polyweb strings I'm still amazed at how long they last, retain tone and stay in tune.

        I like the tone of polyweb vs nanoweb coating. Quiet and mellow.
