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.

Bright & Smooth

They are bright and smooth as written on the package. I prefer uncoated 80/20 bronze strings on cedar top guitars but Elixir's phosphor bronze strings are very bright, and a great match with cedar top.
  • Last longer than uncoated strings.

Elixir is the overwhelming choice in the Harem
June 17, 2019
My guitar Harem includes two Martins, a Breedlove, an Epiphone Masterbilt, a resonator and two travel guitars. After experimenting with various brands, Elixir is the overwhelming favorite among the guitars in the Harem. Consistent, long-lasting tone that lasts longer is the formula that makes Elixir cross the finish line ahead of the competition. Since i like to bend strings, the Elixir G is slightly smaller that some other brands.

Lighter gauge strings that sound huge. Will make any acoustic sound better. Highly recommended.
