Overview

Prolong your tone with the same acoustic guitar strings that experienced players worldwide trust to keep their incredible tone longer than any other string available.

Unlike other string brands, Elixir Strings coats the whole string. This protects not only the outer string surface but also the gaps between the windings where common tone-deadening gunk typically builds up in other brands’ coated and uncoated guitar strings. Anti-Rust Plating on plain steel strings ensures longer tone life for the entire set.

Who wouldn’t love more quality playing time between the hassle and cost of string changes?

Premium by design, these acoustic strings constructed with 80/20 (80% copper, 20% zinc) bronze wrap wire boast a crisp, bright tone with an expressive, vibrant presence. Compared to Elixir's original POLYWEB Coating, the ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating allows a more traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel.

For a slicker, gentler feel, try the original POLYWEB Coating on their 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Strings, which also feature a more robust and rounded tone. For more of a balance between bold and bright, Elixir's Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating deliver full-bodied tone and sparkling high-end clarity alongside the same traditional feel as these 80/20 bronze strings.

Of course, the kind of string you play is all a matter of personal preference. Not sure what tone or feel is right for you? Try them out for yourself, and find your new favorite string from Elixir Strings. For a more in-depth look at what makes our strings so special, scroll to the branded info further down the page.

Pricy But Smooth

By Old Hippie

from St. Louis, MO.

Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.011-.052):

I bought these for my son's guitar. (small beginner hands) He likes them better than anything else we've tried. He says they're "slippery"! Personally, I like the tone of Martin strings better...but for smaller, beginning hands, these are the way to go.

Great Acoustic Strings

By FranzMan

from N. Stonington, ST

Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.011-.052):

There is minimal squeak if that's a problem for you, it is for me, because they are a bit slippery, but you get used to it real fast. I bought these because i was really into the song Seven Nation Army by the White Stripes, and it's played on the acoustic, but in order to play the song, it was easiest to slide the finger up the string. the coating on these made no squeak and BONUS they stay in tune longer and don't lose that nice tone because of the coating... This beats Martin.

Very Bright

By Aaron

from Cypress, Illinois

Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.011-.052):

Admittedly, I've only been playing guitar 5 years or so, and I've never (until recently) owned an acoustic. However, I am a bit of a tech head and recording buff, so my ear knows what sounds good. A lot of my guitar buddies recommended Elixir strings, most of whom said the 11's were what they played with. I decided to go with these Nanowebs because they were supposed to be brighter, which is good if you're tracking a song or playing with other people and want the acoustic to stick out. I love the sound of these. Note that the bright sound wouldn't be suited for people who do a lot of solo playing as the bottom end isn't as heavy, but even a little EQ work can fix that problem if you're plugged it. These are awesome strings, and I hope they last me a long time.

great elixir strings

By pam

from Leon, WV

Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.011-.052):

I bought these for my husband and he is extremely pleased with these strings. He uses them on all his guitars and I must admit, they do have a better sound quality. He doesn't use any other type. AND they were a great deal. The shipping was reasonable and we recieved them very quickly.

Great Strings

By Gaylerd

from Keller, TX

Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.011-.052):

I have been playing guitar for over 45 years! I play on a Taylor C816. There just aren't any better strings than the Elixir NONOWEB, 80/20 bronze. I like the Custom Light, becuase they are easy to lay wether I am finger picking or strumming! If you are wondering what kind of strings to put on your guitar... look no further. Get the Elixir NONOWEB.

Great strings, great vendor, great price!!!!!

By Lynn Breaux

from New Iberia, LA

Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.011-.052):

I've been using these strings for ages on a GA Guitars Crown of Thorns, a Takamine FP360SC and a Baby Taylor. They are perfect for me, last a long, long while, and are just the right gauge for my playing. If you're buying them, you may as well get them for the best price. That is here at the Guitar Center. We do know that the best price isn't always the best price if the freight is kicked up, or the service sucks, but that's not the case here. Great service, great price, reasonable freight and quick shipping. Can't ask for more.

Only Strings I'll use

By Russ Grimes

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.011-.052):

These are the only strings I'll use on my Taylors. They'll last a good 3-months of heavy use. A bit more expensive per set Yes but considering the annual cost of strings...I'll take Elixir Nano Custom Lights over a dozen sets of someother guys strings...Just wish my local GC kept them in stock but with 3-day delivery who can complain?

Like a brand new guitar

By Justin Poole

from Philly, Pa

Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.011-.052):

My uncle turned me on to Elixir strings a few years ago.. I now string everyone in the family with them ! When people ask me about them(Or I go talking about them) I tell people, " You can throw them on a Wal-Mart guitar, and it will come out sounding like a Martin... Beautiful, rich tones, that I have never heard another string produce.

      Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.011-.052):

      I perform most gigs outdoors and mostly in summer temperatures. That means heat, sweat, humidity all have taken a staggering toll on my string life. I have not been able to find a brand that will last more than 1 or 2 shows until now. I have played 5 shows with this brand on my Martin with very little tone loss. The high E and B were the first to go, so just replacing them got me through 2 more gigs. Yes this brand is more expensive but seems to last twice if not three times longer for me. Have not had one break yet!

          I got my strings in early, thanx to Guitar Centers fast shipping! I opened my strings and put them on my guitar and they sound wonderful! I did have a little trouble out of the pegs that hold the string in place, the strings being custom light was a little smaller than I planned on them being, but with a little time I got them to work. (Please note that my pegs are old, and I should have bought new ones) I love the strings cause you can make bends with them and they are very clear and ring very loudly!!!!! I will definitely buy them again!
