Elixir Anti-Rust Phosphor Bronze Nanoweb Coated Acoustic Guitar Strings

Item Description

Not all guitar strings are created equal. Even after just a few hours of play, dirt, sweat, skin oils and other debris will build up between the string's windings, causing corrosion in the metal. The result is a noticeable "deadening" of the string's tonal quality, which can happen very quickly with uncoated strings.

Elixir Phosphor Bronze strings begin with anti-rust plated plain steel strings that are corrosion resistant. They provide a clean feel and bright, vibrant tone. Both the steel core and its phosphor bronze winding are then treated with Elixir's patented Nanoweb thin polymer coating that completely envelops the entire string. This results in a long-lasting, rich tone with more audible high-frequency harmonics. The ultra-thin Nanoweb gives you the natural feel of untreated strings without sacrificing that important protection. This revolutionary product is a great value, as it means a dynamic and lively sound with less frequent string changes and fewer string purchases.

Always a great string.
February 25, 2016
I've been using these sets for well over a decade now. They put out a great sound, with a singing tone. The string life is long, so it more than balances out the cost of the strings. Great projection.
Long life. Great tone.

Perfect Acoustic Guitar Strings
May 19, 2015
These are the best acoustic strings that money can buy. I've had mine on for 5 months now and they look and play almost the same as the day i put them on. Not bad for 5 months of almost everyday playing!! I will admit that i brought the 11 gauge and they are probably a little too lite for me, i'll try the 12 gauge next and let you guys know! But the clarity and "spank" on these strings are amazing. Run out and get a pair and see for yourself. And i guarantee you, if you buy 2 packs, you wont buy strings for almost a year!! Don't believe me, try them!

I won't string my guitar with anything else. The sound is bright, and the tone lasts forever. You get your money's worth with these babies.

My favorite set!
September 21, 2014
Great tone from these strings. I use them primarily for bluegrass and old-time and they make my old D-18 sound awesome.

long lasting and smooth feel
September 14, 2014
I really like the smooth feel of these. Not just the wound strings...the trebles seem smoother than my Martins. I wish they came in a true-medium, balanced tension, as I end up having to buy a separate low E, high e, and high b. They don't produce my absolute favorite tone, but they sound good, and work well for amplified performance with reduced squeak.

Beautiful Tone
September 1, 2014
I recently switched to these for Celtic and open tuning fingerstyle on my Taylor 514-CE. They sound equally as great for flatpicking bluegrass on my Martin D18. Beautiful tone that can bark when pushed.

Best strings for my Dreadnought
August 20, 2014
You probably want to have guitar strings that are comfortable to play on and that stays in tune for a long time. The answer to this is Elixir Nano web. Furch/Stonebridge guitars use this when guitars are delivered from factory.

Great tone, long life
July 15, 2014
These really last longer than other strings, coated or not. I actually prefer the feel of coated strings, as there's no string squeak and it's easier to move around the neck. They have very bright tone for the last couple of weeks which turns into slightly warmer but still not dull tone that lasts more.
long life, tone, feel

Elixr Phos/Bronze Mediums
April 23, 2012
I have tried to save a buck or two, but the sound results are not worth it. I love the sound on my Taylor 315ce and will stay with the Elixr Nano strings. I do get loud low end, and really bright mids and highs. Playability is very good.

Great strings!
July 20, 2011
These are my favorite strings! I've tried all the brand of strings and to me Elixirs are the best! They have a VERY nice feel. They are nice and loud and it has a nice bright,clear tone.I recommend these strings to people who's hands sweat (causing corrosion). Life of the string is great! Bit pricey though but other that these strings are great. If you haven't tried them i suggest you do.

Nano PB lights.
February 4, 2010
These last long, have slinky feel but don't compare to others as far as snappy tone from low E and A strings. The slick feel can be nice but I like my low E and A strings to bark and growl - not these.

Phosphor Bronze nanowebs
January 21, 2010
I've tried all the available coated strings and the Elixit Nanowebs are the only ones that last as advertised and sound fantastic throughout their lifespan. I definitely prefer the phosphor bronze ones too.
