Coated vs. Non-Coated Strings
Most manufacturer's use a coating process which provides the feel of traditional strings, rather than a coating that smooths over the ribbed texture of the round wound non-coated string. Elixir however, supplies both with the Nanoweb Coating for traditional feel and Polyweb Coating for a smoother feel.
Either coating process looks to preserve the tone quality of the original non-coated string, sometimes extending the life of the string 3 to 4 times longer. Maintaining your strings by washing and drying your hands thoroughly before playing, then wiping your strings down with a soft dry cloth after playing will also help preserve them.
