OVERVIEW

Last 3 to 5 times longer than uncoated strings.

Strum confidently with the same premium acoustic guitar 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 guitar strings. Anti-Rust Plating on plain steel strings ensures longer tone life for the entire set.

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

Engineered to endure, these acoustic strings constructed with phosphor bronze wrap wire boast a dynamic balance of rich, full-bodied tone and sparkling high-end clarity. Compared to our original POLYWEB Coating, the ultra-thin NANOWEB coating allows a more traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel.

For a slicker, gentler feel, try a set of strings with their original POLYWEB Coating. The 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating, for example, might be a good fit if you want a more robust and rounded tone. On the other end of the tone spectrum, Elixir's 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating deliver a brighter, crisper tone alongside the same traditional feel as these phosphor bronze strings.

Of course, the kind of string you play is all a matter of personal preference. Not sure what tone or feel is right for you? Try them out for yourself, and find your new favorite string from Elixir Strings. Jam on and on (and on) with the same premium electric bass guitar strings that experienced players worldwide trust to keep their incredible tone longer than any other string available. 

Specially developed based on in-depth feedback from more than a thousand bass players just like you, Elixir Strings' tailor-made selection of bass strings proudly includes nickel-plated and stainless steel construction options, four-, five- and six-string sets, long and extra-long scales, and virtually every gauge range you could possibly need. All with their innovative string coating technology. And 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 guitar strings.

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

Premium by design, these electric bass guitar strings constructed with nickel-plated steel wrap wire boast a rich, rounded tone with incredible clarity and a heavy mid-range presence. Meanwhile, the ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating, redesigned specifically for bass guitars, allows a smooth, natural feel that also enhances grip and reduces finger squeak.

For a brighter bass tone, try our Stainless Steel Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating.  

Of course, the kind of string you play is all a matter of personal preference. Not sure what tone is right for you? Try them out for yourself, and find your new favorite string from Elixir Strings.

I have two acoustics, one Brazilian Rosewood, the other Mahogany, now strung with these. Both have superlative sound quality, noticeably enhanced by these strings. However be advised that the wound strings have a very coarse pitch, by which I mean the windings are of relatively thick wire with deep valleys between windings. Your fingers will notice the friction, especially if you do a lot of vertical position shifts. The nanoweb coating is thus VERY different from the polyweb which gives much less friction but also a lot less sound. I'm still deciding whether the increase in sound quality is worth it.

The set that did not break lasted for years and sounded grea

2 of 3 sets ordered had a G string break while installing them. The one that did not break lasted for years.

I've used Elixer poly on my `94 Strat, my Les Paul & on my Alvarez acoustic/electric for years, gauge appropriate of course. These lite nano phosphor bronze strings are bright, smooth, resilient long lasting tone that make my ears happy. Worth the extra cost easy ...

    Comments about Elixir Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Extra Light (.010-.047):

    I have been playing electric guitar for many years but recently made the switch to acoustic. I finally found the strings that make an acoustic sound like an electric with the Elixirs. If you like a bright sound like me you will not be disappointed. Elixirs keep their tone longer than any other strings I have used in the past. Give them a try!

    Best strings for my guitar

    By Richard Carew

    from Phoenix, AZ

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Elixir Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Extra Light (.010-.047):

    These strings cost a little more but you can tell the difference with these strings. I invested a lot of money in a custom guitar and I want it to sound its best so these are the strings I choose.
    The phosphor bronze adds some depth to the strings. Something in the alloy makes strings that are sweet even sweeter.
    These strings always have the sweetest tone. On my Taylor (Maple b/s) they sound like a piano, very bluesy On my custom guitar (rosewood b/s) they give it the voice of an angel.
    I rated these a 10 whereas I rated the plain old nanoweb strings a 9. The alloy makes a difference in tonal quality. My new custom guitar sounds so sweet with these strings it brings tears to my eyes.

    Comments about Elixir Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Extra Light (.010-.047):

    Been using this brand for years, tried some others but missed the smooth feeling that these strings give as well as the crisp sound. As an occaisional player I light the extra light - easy on the fingers. The strings don't boom the lows - but thats OK with me.

    Work great on a semi-hollow!

    By NikolaiIronfist

    Comments about Elixir Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Extra Light (.010-.047):

    I bought a set of these for my Agile AS-820 and they sound amazing! I've used the electric polywebs in the past, and I am so much more satisfied with these strings. They have a great tone, and I have had no issues with finger movement being inhibited. The wound G string takes some getting used to on an electric guitar, as to be expected with acoustic strings =P Overall, a great buy!

            I broke down and bought these one time and these are all that I buy for my acoustic guitars. These are lighter than I use normally, but I thought my son who is a beginner should start with these. Fully expecting that they would sound thin, they still have some boom to them and project pretty well for light gage strings. I'm considering trying these for my next set. Hey, it's hare enough to play acoustic, if I can lighten up the gage a little and still get the sound, I will.

                          Bought a Composite Acoustics guitar. Quite expensive and well made and it comes with these strings. Part of why I bought the guitar was the sound and the way it played high up on the neck. That's why I want to keep using what they chose to put on the guitar to begin with. Love these strings.
