Fight the grunge!

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.

    16 years and dozens of failed string testings. Polyweb is my choice of strings on all my guitars. From Les Pauls to Steinbergers, and anything that has a Floyd Rose you can not choose another brand. The Polywebs have a thicker, slicker feel to them compared to the Nanoweb. I prefer this feel, but either type has more life in them than any other string I tested. I can do a Floyd Rose string change and adjustments in just about 25 minutes. I don't need to be doing that every couple of weeks or month. With Poly & Nano, you can get between 6 to 8 weeks of moderate playing on them. If you only play occasionally you can easily get 3 months out of them. I advise to change them every 3 months no matter how much playing has been done. But just like any strings, the more bending you do the less life they will have. If you go nuts on the Floyd Rose every other moment you'll get no more than 4 good weeks out of them. But compare that intense playing with a set of Ernie Ball super slinky's and your lucky if you get 2 weeks life. Bottom line, they double your current strings life span no matter how you play them. Just change them every 3 months like you would an oil change on a car. The price is double cause they WILL last twice as long. If not 3 times as much.

    WORST STRINGS EVER!!!

    These strings break entirely too easily (started breaking on 2nd use). Polyweb does no good if the strings are all broken. Love Elixirs on my acoustic, but back to Boomers for electric!

    Comments about Elixir Super Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

    Normally, I go through a set of strings in a week or two. I play daily, though not professionally any more. I do play for audiences, however, several times a month. Normal strings only last a week or perhaps two. The Polywebs last for several months. They just kept playing and playing and...

    Comments about Elixir Super Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

    Before I started using Elixir's Polyweb strings I would have to change my guitar strings literally twice every night. This strings not only last forever but they both sound and feel amazing. Hands down, the best strings on the market. It is a shame however that the Polywebs are only available in only two gauges.

      These strings sound and feel great.
      When you smash a chord, it's like a crash cymbal.

          Bought these for my best bud, and he's loving them. I use elixir strings on my bass also, so I knew they were a quality product, now he does too.

            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.

            Best Strings Ever

            Comments about Elixir Super Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

            I have been using these strings for years now. I love them. They sound great and last twice as long as any other strings I've tried. Never wrote a review though until now. I recently tried D'Addarios new coated strings. Bought 3 packs of the Super Lights from Musicians Friend. Not sure why. They were terrible. Only lasted 3 to 4 weeks. That is why I decided to right this review. I still haven't found a better set of strings than Elixirs Polyweb Super lights...

            Best stings you can find

            By StrattyPlayer1

            from Honolulu, HI

            Comments about Elixir Super Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

            I was recommended these strings by my guitar teacher and i thought they were any old strings, i started playing them and after 10 minutes i was hooked. I live in Hawaii and a lot of strings go bad really fast due to the climate, Not these. I've have a pair of polyweb 9's on my jackson and a pair of nanoweb 9's on my fender both for about 5 months and I'm just starting to see a little residue, but they still feel and sound almost new. I'd recommend the polywebs though, the nanowebs are going a little fast. Overall these strings are amazing and I'm never going back.
