Combat finger grunge!

The Nanoweb Custom Light acoustic guitar strings from Elixir give you impressive longevity and a natural playing experience. Their innovative Nanoweb coating is an ultrathin polymer that protects the strings from the buildup of gunk while providing an uncoated feel. The 80/20 bronze wrap wire and phosphor bronze wound strings produce a vibrant, well-rounded tone that sparkles. The plain steel strings are plated to prevent rust, ensuring consistent tone and intonation over time.

Nanoweb Coating: Unmatched Lifespan and Traditional Feel

Elixir's Nanoweb coating is a technological breakthrough that extends string life like no other brand while providing a natural, uncoated feel. The ultrathin coating prevents the accumulation of finger oils and dirt between the windings that can shorten string life. You'll experience fewer string changes and more consistent tone during each playing session.

80/20 Bronze Alloy: The Perfect Balance of Tone

The 80/20 bronze alloy wrap wire and phosphor bronze wound strings produce a tone that is both bright and full-bodied. The 80/20 bronze alloy, made of 80% copper and 20% zinc, delivers crisp highs and focused lows. The phosphor bronze bass strings provide warmth and round out the tonal spectrum. Together, these metals give you a balanced acoustic sound with articulate highs and rich lows.

Long-Lasting Intonation Thanks to Rust-Resistant Plain Steel

The Nanoweb Custom Light strings feature plain steel strings with an anti-rust plating. This protects the treble strings from corrosion which can negatively impact intonation and tone. The plated plain strings will maintain their pitch accuracy and brightness over the long lifespan of these strings. You'll enjoy perfectly intonated, harmonically rich chords and single-note lines from the first strum to the last.

A String for Every Acoustic Musician

Whether you prefer a slicker coated feel or an uncoated traditional feel, Elixir makes a string to suit your needs. The Nanoweb Custom Light strings provide a natural feel for those who want maximum tone life and minimal coating. For a silkier feel, Elixir's original Polyweb strings are also available. With a variety of gages and alloys to choose from, you'll find your perfect string match.
