About These Strings

Every time you play your guitar, tiny bits of you are left to invade the windings to contaminate your strings and kill your tone. Elixir Strings are the only strings that keep dirt out of the windings by coating the entire string. Our ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating provides a bright, lively tone that players tell us lasts longer than any other string, uncoated or coated. This means you buy fewer sets of strings, change them less often and trust your guitar is ready to go whenever you are.

Elixir's Ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating on this Phosphor Bronze string gives you a rich, textured tone with the feel of traditional non-coated strings, while lasting 3-5 times longer.

The #1 acoustic guitar string in the US, Elixir Strings doesn't just coat the wrap wire, but coats the entire string preventing corrosion and contamination from accumulating on the surface and in the space between the windings. Anti-Rust plating on all Elixir's plain steel strings resists tone-deadening corrosion, giving you a clean feel every time you play your guitar.

Smooth strings

By: on 29 December 2020
These strings have a nice sound and feel smooth under the fingers, and they arrived super quick after ordering. I'm beginning to get used to that from Artist Guitars though, service seems so quick.

Great strings

I've brought these strings a number of times off Artist Guitars and they're cheaper than a music store and delivery is always within a week. Sorry for any owners of music stores that maybe reading this but I'm on a tight budget. The strings also hold their new tone for longer than other strings. Recommend giving them a try.

Long lasting

By: on 21 February 2015
Purchased these strings before off Artist Guitars Price is good and so are the strings. If you're not one to change your strings as often then these are for you. I find the clarity of the strings lasts longer. Delivery is normally within a week too, so you're not waiting for ages with some ebay sellers which we all know is a real pain. Give them a try if you haven't already
