OVERVIEW

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.

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.

    Comments about Elixir Super Light Polyweb Electric Guitar 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.

        Comments about Elixir Super Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

        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.

          Comments about Elixir Super Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

          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.

            These strings are hands down the best that are being made today, If you take care of them, you might never have to change them. If you use a guitar with a Floyd Rose bridge, These are a must.

            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.
