OVERVIEW

Don't let your bluegrass lose its twang.

Prolong your tone with the same premium mandolin strings that experienced players worldwide trust to keep their incredible tone longer than any other string available.

Unlike other string brands, Elixir Strings coats the whole string. This protects not only the outer string surface but also the gaps between the windings where common tone-deadening gunk typically builds up in other brands’ coated and uncoated mandolin strings.

Who wouldn’t love more quality playing time between the hassle and cost of string changes?

Crafted to last, these mandolin strings constructed with 80/20 (80% copper, 20% zinc) bronze wrap wire boast a bright, bell-like tone while the NANOWEB Coating allows a traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel.

FEATURES
  • Gauges 11-15-26-40
  • Mandolin strings constructed with 80/20 (80% copper, 20% zinc) bronze wrap wire
  • Played for a bright, bell-like tone
  • Ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating provides a traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel 
  • Patented coating technology protects against common corrosion, extending tone life longer than any other brand’s coated or uncoated strings (Elixir Strings player survey) 
  • Coating also reduces finger squeak

I had been playing Martin strings on an inexpensive Rogue mandolin. I was not happy with the tone of the instrument and was thinking of upgrading the mandolin. I first tried these strings and I couldn't believe the difference. The tone was fantastic and the playability was great as well. Before you give up on your mandolin, give these strings a try. They are well worth the extra few bucks.

Wouldn't buy them again

They don't stay in tune. The G and D strings sound fuzzy.

Beautiful Tone!

Comments about Elixir Mandolin Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Medium (.011-.040):

I've always used Elixir strings for all my instruments, and when I went to re-string my Michael Kelly Legacy mandolin, I decided to go for something cheaper and get some martin strings. Huge mistake. As soon as I put them on, I was horrified and immediately ordered some Elixirs. These strings have a gorgeous bright tone, and don't lack any substance on the lower notes. They feel smooth as can be, and last for so long. Over all I would highly suggest you get Elixirs for any string instrument you own!

Comments about Elixir Mandolin Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Medium (.011-.040):

I bought this along with my Rogue RM-100A mandolin. While I didn't really dislike the sound that the original strings had, they were kinda abrasive for doing slides. These are much smoother.

elixir mandolin strings - worth the price

By Joseph Barrett

from NJ

Comments about Elixir Mandolin Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Medium (.011-.040):

Features? They're strings
Major improvement over the strings that were originally shipped on my Rogue mandolin (play guitar, got the Rogue mandolin to try it out w/o breaking the bank). They stay in tune longer and have a much brighter, fuller sound.

great strings. I got so used to having that coating on my strings that when i put a set of my old standby's on, it felt like my fingers were sticking to the strings. I noticed that the rating on these string was kinda low and don't understand why. GREAT STRINGS.

Comments about Elixir Mandolin Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Medium (.011-.040):

I use elixir for all my instruments from my Breedlove acoustic to now my Mandolin. I've used other types of strings on my Mando but these are the best. Definitely worth purchasing they make my Epiphone sing. I'll never buy a different brand again.

Comments about Elixir Mandolin Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Medium (.011-.040):

I've used Elixir strings on my guitars from the beginning ( once they hit the correct coating). Now they are producing them for the Mandolin. I can only find them in the nanoweb for the Mandolin and hope they develops a polyweb version (which last longer) The Mandolin strings are very bright and do best on an instrument that is lower to mid range in tone. They work very well on my KM-1000.

                  With a house full of stringed instruments, I pay a little extra to not have to change strings so often. These were for my sons mandolin and he likes them because they're a little easier on his fingers.

                      I have been using Elixir strings for years, I'm always confident they will perform great for me. I play pretty hard on stage and at practice , but I almost never brake a string, they sound great and are long lasting, the only brand I use.

                              I've played guitar for about 35 years. I began using Elixir strings about 5 years ago. After trying different brands I've stuck w these and they are consistent, they stay in tune and last forever before loosing sustain and sounding dead. So when I bought my mandolin I bought these for it. Same results as on my guitar. They're awesome strings. If you're thinking of buying some...buy em
