    Comments about Rotosound Nexus Polymer Medium Light Coated Acoustic Strings:

    I recently went on a quest for alternatives to Elixirs. I like Elixirs but was curious what else was out there. These RotoSound Nexus acoustic strings were very interesting for two reasons, first is that the feel is almost exactly like Elixir Nanowebs, you cannot see the coating but that slippery-ness feel is there, also the tone is better in the sense that these Nexus strings are more well balanced. The Elixirs tend to be a bit heavy on the high end, not enough bass to balance the strings tone wise so you end up with a kind of shrill tinny-ness especially on some guitars. Well these Nexus strings are much better balanced and they have this very interesting "dry, open, woody" sound. Where some strings have a dense lush sound, these strings have a dry beautiful clarity to their sound, honestly I've not heard anything quite like it. The website says these are the coated version of the Jumbo Kings strings by RotoSound. The only thing I noticed about these Nexus strings is that they *seemed to me* to be a little less volume wise compared to the Elixirs but not enough to make me go back to Elixirs. For the time being, these are my new coated acoustic strings, give em a try, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised!

    Nexus is the next best

    Comments about Rotosound Nexus Polymer Medium Light Coated Acoustic Strings:

    I discovered Rotosound Jumbo King strings two years ago and have not yet found a string that will beat it. Roto Jumbo King is THE best sounding acoustic string ive ever heard. It cant be beat. I tried the Nexus thinking it might be even better but I was wrong.IMO, they dont sound as good as Jumbo Kings and at twice the price, even if they lasted longer, you get two sets of JKs for the price of 1 set of Nexus. Nexus is a good string and I will admit they have a sweet sound but nothing compares to the Roto Sound Jumbo Kings. The tone loss in the Nexus simply isnt worth the extended life. Even if they were both priced the same Id buy Jumbo Kings. Stick with Jumbo Kings. They are Faithful and True. Why fix it if it aint broke?
