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 strings' 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.

These 10-47 Elixir Phosphor bronze light strings offer a sound alternative. Besides delivering the ultimate in long-lasting durability, Elixir Nanoweb Phosphor Bronze light strings give a rich, warm tone and crisp, balanced sound.

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 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 because it delivers a dynamic and lively sound with less frequent string changes and fewer string purchases. Best of all, you can get them here at Strings and Beyond at low prices with fast, friendly service. Free shipping to addresses in the U.S. is available for orders over $35.

Best Acoustic Strings IMO
April 20, 2017
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!
  • Tonal balance
  • Longevity
  • Feel
  • None that I can think of!

Long lasting strings
November 16, 2016
I don't like the elixir much as I feel uncomfortable with the tension of them but I put them on the guitars I don't use often. Last for a year at least.
  • - Last long
  • - Expensive
  • - Uncomfortable to play these strings.

The standard for acoustic strings
September 30, 2016
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).

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
May 28, 2016
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
May 9, 2016
The coating began coming off after the first few uses. The 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.
  • Sound seems to be brighter for a longer period of time.
  • The nanoweb coating becomes stringy & begins to ruffle up and comes loose after a few sessions.

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.
