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.

Phosphor Bronze brings more warmth to Taylor 514ce
January 14, 2022
I have used Elixir Polyweb 12-56 on my 514ce since new in 2003 and they were great.
Then, I tried these (Elixir 16102 Phosphor Bronze Nanoweb 13-56) and love them even more.
A little heavier 1st, 2nd, & 3rd strings and Phosphor Bronze brings a whole new warm tone.
These are my new "go-to" strings for my Taylor...
Consistent Quality

I always depend on the quality, longevity and tone of Elixir strings. I find the Nanoweb coating provides the perfect balance between natural tone and extended life.

Best Sound & Durability
May 13, 2019
Great for country & bluegrass on an acoustic dreadnought. Usually last from 7-12 months. .12 or .13 are perfect for hard aggressive strumming.
  • Durability
  • Affordability
  • Quality Sound
  • Amazing Feel
  • Makes you not want any other strings on

My Go To Strings For My Acoustics
October 8, 2018
These strings are perfect for taylors - and I have found great tone and longevity on my Gibson dreadnaught as well. They don't rob the Gibson of tone - but at the same time they do sweeten both of my taylors, compared with uncoated strings or other coated strings. These are my go to strings all around - I was changing strings nearly every gig until I switched to Elixirs. Now, I can easily go 2-3 weeks at the same playing frequency 3-4 gigs/week, plus rehearsals, etc. *Don't give up on Elixirs if you had tried them in the past - these don't flake off, and the tone lasts a Looong time!
  • Last much longer
  • Tone is great
  • Feel good under the fingers
  • More expensive - but last longer

Great strings!

Will make any acoustic guitar sound better and bigger with this medium gauge. Last a long time and the tone can't be beat. Highly recommended.
