"As good as they say - bright, full, loud and durable"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Excellent strings. Brings out the tone of my guitar. Tone is now a lot brighter, fuller and louder. I've heard these last ages compared to other ones. I used to cheap out on strings but I've decided to finally go for the expensive ones. Haven't tested the durability but it already feels like it would last. The nano coating is excellent, makes play-ability a lot smoother. These may end up saving me a lot more $$ compared to buying cheapo ones and changing more frequently. It's really as good as they say. Made in the USA. I won't be buying any other strings. They're worth it!

Acoustic Phosphor Bronze with NANOWEB Coating.

Many players prefer the rich, textured tone of phosphor bronze strings. These Elixir Strings capture the sweet spot of that unique phosphor bronze tone. And, players report their tone lasts longer than any other string, uncoated or coated.

America's #1 selling acoustic guitar strings, Elixir Strings, retain their tone longer than any other string, uncoated or coated, according to players. They provide the playability and long lasting tone that top artists worldwide depend upon.

  • Nanoweb coating permits acoustic guitar strings with the feel, bright tone, and punch of traditional strings.
  • Elixir Strings are covered with an ultra-thin, polymer tube that contacts the string on the tops of the windings only. This leaves the all-important winding-to-winding-to-core space free from the fear of the enemies of tone.
  • Elixir Strings keep their lively tone three to five times longer than ordinary strings.

Mfr part no: 16052 – Elixir Nw Acoustic Phosphor Light 012–053.

Elixir Strings revolutionized guitar strings by finding a way to extend the life of wound strings without compromising the tone. Elixir Strings with NANOWEB Coating sound and feel more like traditional, uncoated strings. They are bright and lively, and the coating is so thin that you can barely tell it's there. Elixir Strings with POLYWEB Coating have a balanced tone. They sound like strings that have been perfectly “played in”. They are comfortably smooth and help reduce finger squeak. Both feature patented protection and deliver extended tone life.
