      Elixir Light Nanoweb Acoustic Guitar Strings (101243814)
Availability:  


Combat finger grunge!

Gauges: 12-16-24-32-42-53.

Elixir Acoustic Guitar Strings are covered with an ultrathin, space-age 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 Nanoweb coating permits acoustic guitar strings with the feel, bright tone, and punch of traditional strings. Elixirs are the first major innovation in guitar strings in over forty years and they deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what you put them on or how often you play.

Most players report that Elixir Strings keep sounding great 3 to 5 times longer than ordinary strings.

  • Best Sounding Acoustic strings but not good for alternate tunings

    As reviewed by Kevin on 1/24/2008

    I absolutely love the way these strings sound and feel. They have the brightest sound and they last about 2 or times longer than your average acoustic string. The downside? Elixer acoustic strings are more exspensive than your average acoustic string. For any serious guitar player this shouldn't be a big issue. My main problem with the elixers is that they are horrible for detuning. I play a lot of funky tunings where I'll raise or drop my strings 2-3 steps. It never fails, the high E string and the G string always break when I detune. So In short if I were keeping my guitar in standard tuning or drop D only I would keep my acoustic strung with these, unfortunately with the amount of detuning I do and the price point of these strings it makes it difficult to warrant the purchse of them

  • These are all I use now...

    As reviewed by Moose Lewis on 1/19/2010

    I'm a little perplexed about some of the issues sited in the other reviews, since I have been using these for a few years now with no worries. Most 'good' strings dramatically loose their shine (especially for recording) in a few days. These hold their excellent tone very well, and I don't need to change them nearly as often. I use a wide variety of standard and custom tunings for my work, and have not had a problem with string breakage - period. Keep making them this good, and I'll keep buying them... going to my local GC for a set today. Cheers!

  • What did I pay for?

    As reviewed by Kyle on 10/24/2010

    I have been using D'Addario EXP's (EXP16 and EXP17) on a super-jumbo acoustic guitar. Just on a whim I decided to try these Elixir's (Light Nanoweb .12's) to see the difference in the two as I wanted to really lock down which strings I wanted to use as my choice of strings as I have narrowed it down to EXP and Elixir's because I've heard they were the best. I put the EXP's on and 5 months later I switched to these Elixir's. The EXP's were still practically new - no wear on them, still had really bright tone and lots of reponse. I put the Elixir's on and I will admit that the strings sound good. However, there is the problem - the STRINGS sound good. I want the strings to compliment how my GUITAR sounds. I want my guitar to sound like a guitar and the strings to really bring out the brightness and the bass aspect as well. With the Elixir's it felt like I was playing these expensive strings other than this gorgeous guitar. So overall if you want a coated string for a couple bucks less with, in my opinion, more response and tone, go with D'Addario EXP16's.
