A favorite of such musical luminaries as John Paul Jones, Dave Mason, Melissa Etheridge and Chris Thile, Elixir guitar strings are known for a special coating that extend their life expectancy. These fluoropolymer coatings prevent the buildup of skin oil, sweat and debris that would otherwise cause the strings to corrode and dampen the natural tone of your instrument. These high performance guitar strings are available for acoustic, electric and bass guitars, as well as for mandolins and banjos. We offer Elixir strings with two types of coatings: Polyweb and Nanoweb. Not sure which guitar strings are right for you? The pros at Strings and Beyond can help.
Nanoweb or Polyweb Elixir Guitar Strings?
Nanoweb is a thinner coating that creates a bright sound, while the thicker, smoother Polyweb coating delivers a warmer sound.
The Nanoweb coating is so thin, the strings feel and sound just like uncoated strings. You'll still get the benefit of the protective coating, but with such brightness in tone that you'll forget it's there. Polyweb coated strings sound like strings that have been "broken in," with a more balanced tone. They're smooth to the touch, minimizing finger squeaks. Either coating will give the strings a longer tonal life than untreated strings. Strings and Beyond offers Elixir strings in a variety of gauges and lengths, as well as single Elixir strings. Buy bulk quantities and save even more. With any order of $35 or more, your Elixir electric guitar strings, bass strings, single strings or acoustic strings will ship free within the U.S.
