Item Description

Get the feel and touch of non-coated strings with the long life and like-new sound of coated strings with the Elixir Anti-Rust Nanoweb coated guitar strings.

Elixir’s ultra-thin Nanoweb coating keeps contamination from getting into the windings of your guitar strings and causing corrosion that will deaden their sound and shorten their lives. That lively tone of new strings will last longer and you’ll spend less time and money on changing and buying strings. Elixir doesn’t just coat the wrap wire with its Nanoweb treatment, but instead treats the entire string for extra protection. But the thinness of the Nanoweb coating means the string feels like a traditional non-coated string.

Just read the reviews and you’ll see that your fellow musicians are raving about how the Elixir Nanoweb coated strings last longer and keep sounding like new.

Choose from a wide selection of gauges of the Elixir Nanoweb strings. Or, see the entire range of Elixir strings in Strings and Beyond’s huge inventory of guitar strings.

I have players who use these exclusively because their hands sweat and rust just about everything that isn't coated. So strings like these really come in handy.. I personally don't like coated strings because I find it gives a flappy almost bass like sound as Ryan Bruce (fluff on youtube says) it's like rubber bands but a 5 star because the customer i ordered these for is very happy with them.

Best string I've used.
June 23, 2014
45yrs of playing guitar and these are the best strings I've used. I play only Strats and these perform well on my guitars. Last much longer and are more alive sounding than other string makes. They last max 2mos depending on how much use they get. Of course I'm really fussy about tone so others that aren't so fussy might keep them on longer.

The Gold Standard
May 28, 2014
Elixirs are my go-to strings. I've tried a half dozen or so other coated/long-lasting brands, and none of them exceed or match Elixirs in both value and performance. With my acidic skin, most strings last a week, two at best; with Elixirs, I go months on end before swapping them out. It's tone might not be as earth-shattering as some other strings fresh out of the package (though it's still really good), the consistency over time is well worth the trade-off.
long-lasting smooth feel consistent tone

Elixir's are great for long lasting playability!
January 10, 2014
As expected, Elixir's strings remain sounding good and being rust-free for quite a while. While some may say the sound isn't as good as some Ernie Balls or other stuff, this is not what they're meant for, they're meant for durability. And also, if you're not a very frequent player, you won't even notice the sound difference. On a side note, just in case other Brazilian people thinks about buying, mines were sent on November 23rd, 2013, and arrived at Pernambuco, Brazil, at January 10th, 2014. It took a long while, but they actually arrived! :)
Nothing specific.

Long-life tone
November 28, 2013
This strings, on the beggining, doesn't sound so great like some other strings, but they sure does keep the good sound for even few months. They don't need to be wiped with some chemicals for cleaning strings, they just need to be wiped with some piece of clothing after playing and they will keep the great sound for months.
Great sound and tone even after few months of use.

I play about 2-3 hours everyday, and predictably go through a lot of strings. Before I put a set of these on I was only able to squeeze about a week out of my strings, at which time they would be dead, corroded, and unplayable. I decided to order a set of these as a trial and WOW do they last a long time. I put them on all my electrics and 2 months later, they still look, sound, and play as well as they did the first day I put them on!
- Great sound - Exceptional string life - very playable and bright
- Nanoweb coating takes a day or two to get used to, but once you do you stop noticing it all together

Living up to their marketing quote
March 13, 2013
Yes, they really last 5x longer than anything else. I owned (and own) 3 electric guitars and 2 basses, and while they ARE a bit more expensive than other strings, I don't change them as often, which in the end is more cost effective. Needless to say, they sound terrific.
- guitar with really low budget wood and tuners STAYS in tune with these... unbelievable. - they really last longer, the saying on the package is not a joke
- actually nothing, they are worth 5 stars in every aspect

My favorite strings
October 2, 2010
These are my favorite electric guitar strings. They sound like new strings for a long while, and FEEL like a new string for an even longer while. That is absolutely fantastic. The coating can get a bit flaky where you strum, but it is not noticeable in the sound or playing nor does it affect the longevity of the string.. Highly recommended, they are more than worth their price.

Best Strings Ever!!!!!
May 15, 2010
The best stings ever to buy..... I play Metal rythm in Drop A with Elixir Nanoweb heavy's - with the profuse sweating of my hands when I play, they last more than 3 times longer than all others resisting sweat, dirt, corrosion and retains a bright warm sound far much longer..... well worth the investment in buying these strings - once you try them you will not go back to any other kind of strings due to longevity from corrosion and sustain a rich sound 3-5x longer.

Best strings I have tried. I,ve spent years trying to make my strings slick using everything from talcum poweder to olive oil. This was before fast fret and finger ease. These have a perfect slickness to them and good tone. Did wonders for acoustic and Bass playing and reduced finger noise! I thonk so much of thre=ese strings, I should have an endorsment deal!
