Bolder, stronger high end
Fuller, warmer low end
Balanced voice across all strings
Gauges: 13 17 25 32 42 53
New Elixir HD Light Strings have a bolder high end and fuller low end with a balanced voice across all strings. This was achieved by blending the plain steel strings of a medium gauge set with the wound strings of a light gauge set, bridged by a custom .025 third string. The increased tension of the treble strings improves their articulation. The interaction of the tension profile with the soundboard also adds to the harmonic content of the bass strings. The HD Light strings deliver the extended tone life that players have come to expect from all Elixir Strings.
"They are rather lovely strings! - using a 000x1 Martin and comparing to my usual 12's the HD's are significantly 'fuller'. Across all strings there is more 'punch' and 'warmth'. With 12's when dropping to the dark depths of Bb the strings are so slack the sound is very thin and there is a significant loss of sustain and tone, the HD's give a bit more continuity across all tunings..." - Chris Woods,
