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.

Best Acoustic Strings IMO
This is the best strings I've put on my guitar. It brings the best out of my instruments. The highs, mids and lows are well balance and he tone is bright without being harsh. Combine that to the longevity of those strings and it wins all around!

ConsNone that I can think of!

Brilliant Warmth!
Elixir Anti-Rust PhosBronz strings lasted longer than the D'Addario PhosBronz Strings that I usually use. It's voice has brilliant warmth, good projection of bass and mid and balanced highs.

Long last strings
I dont like much the elixer as I feel uncomfy with the tension of them but I put them to the guitars I dont use oftenly. Last for a year at least.
Pros- Last long
Cons- Expensive - Uncomfy to play these strings.

The standard for acoustic strings
I've tried all the strings on the market searcing for that crisp, rootsy acoustic sound from my Martin D-28, and I have yet to find strings to come so close to that classic Martin sound as Elixirs do! Working musicians will appreciate the fact that these string last much much longer than any other coated strings on the market, they serve me up to 3 months (10 gigs per month on average).

Great strings
I prefer nanowebs over polys for their sound and they still last a long time. Overall they are great strings.

Can't go back to other brands
I've been using Elixir since 2010. After I played my acoustic guitar with these strings, I couldn't go back to other brands. It gives us a clear and warm tone, and lasts much more than any other brand I've tried. It's worth every penny!

Pretty Good Strings
The coating began coming off after the first few uses. They sound stays brighter for a longer period of time than conventional strings and feel good under the fingertips but in my humble opinion, are not worth the additional cost. This is my second experience with coated strings and they are not for me. The coating always comes off after a few sessions.
ProsSound seems to be brighter for a longer period of time.
ConsThe nanoweb coating becomes stringy & begins to ruffle up and comes loose after a few sessions.

Always a great string.
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.
ProsLong life. Great tone.

Perfect Acoustic Guitar Strings
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!

My favorite set!
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
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.
