OVERVIEW

Gauges 09-11-16-24-32-42.

Elixir Electric Guitar 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! No more gunk and goo. No more DNA evidence. No kidding.

In addition to an ultrathin grunge-resistant tubular coating on the wound strings, Polywebs now have a revolutionary Anti-Rust plating on the plain strings to extend their life too.

Elixirs are the first major innovation in guitar 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.

Fight the grunge!

Got a set of these on an LP that I got a while back, they lasted quite a while, but I haven't used them since, as I was a loyal D'Ad user. But I recently got a bad lot of those with a consistently breaking D string, so another player recommended I try them again. So far, so good, but they are slippery, and I find my fingers slipping off on long bends. Still getting used to them.

        I strung my Swingster with NANO's 9's>46's and I loved the feel, but it was far to brite for the Alnico pickups and an old Flextone II. 10 months of Nano use and I wanted to try the Polywebs but they don't have a comparable size to the Nano's so I bought the 12000 Super Lights and the 12050 Lights and made my own top light/ bottom heavy Polywebs. Wow! I can turn the tone higher than 2! wonderful strings for the Swingster.More resonate for this guitar and my use.

            I was using fender bullets for years. Took a chance with these strings. They are AMAZING! I am using them on a Fender American Deluxe HSS Stratocaster, that came new with 9's. I am just blown away by the tone and playability of these strings.

                Just wipe these down after playing and they last for years. I have over 40 guitars. The Elixir strings are on all of them . When i take one out of the case i can wpie the strings with a good cloth and just keep playing on them. They stay very consistant in tone.

                    I couldn't believe how good these strings are. I previously used Ernie Ball Super Slinky which are fine strings, but these are just on a whole other level. The tone seems to bring out more clarity and smooth out some of the unwanted harshness you get playing in a high gain setting. The coating allows you to just slide up and down the fretboard like melting butter, ultra smooth. They also seem to stay in tune a lot better than any strings I've played. These strings justify the higher price not just in durability, but in tone and feel.

                      I played the typical Ernie Ball pink package, Super Slinky strings for as long as I've played guitar and they are good strings. But these are great strings!! I've read some reviewers talk about the long life of the strings, which is a good bonus. But the feel of the coating on the strings, the warmer tone and the ability to stay in tune longer than most strings are my favorite features. The feel while I'm playing them with that coating is amazing. All of the strings just slide like butter in your fingers. The tone is also warmer than my old strings. Lastly when I tune my guitar the tuning isn't near as far out. Just slight adjustments.
