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.

I have played with many different kinds of strings and i have to say that this one is the BEST. I sound is rich and smooth and simply MIND BLOWING, not to mention they last a lot longer than other strings. You don't have to replace it as often because it is coated and is perfect for people with sweaty hands. Seems a bit more pricey, but worth it in the long run.

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.

        LISTEN!!

        By Keith

        from Newtown, PA

        Comments about Elixir Light Nanoweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I'm open-minded to new things and have experimented with a variety of brands through the years, so when the Elixirs came along with a price 3x that of the average pack, I was definitely curious to see what all the fuss was about. I have an all-solid wood concert-size acoustic that I gig with frequently. I've played it for endless hours and know how it responds to flat picking and finger-picking. I look for the response of the strings to be linear. (Particularly in finger-picking - Each string needs to be heard equally.) I put on the Elixirs and it was like half my guitar was missing. Lots of bright high-end sparkle, OK low end, but severely lacking mid's. I played them for 20 minutes; trying different techniques, different styles of music... Finally, I couldn't take it any longer. I ripped them off and put on a brand I have often used before...Ahhhh there's my guitar. I know a lot of people rave about how long these strings stay shiny and fresh and feel so smooth, but really, who cares how long they last or how they feel if they sound so poor to begin with? Experiment with different strings and see what they give you, but most importantly...LISTEN to your guitar.

        So far, AWESOME!

        By JOHN EHLER

        from TX

        Comments about Elixir Light Nanoweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I've been playing guitar for around 22 years and I'm quite impressed by these strings. They really seem to keep the new string sound. They sound better than other strings I've used, and in over 2 decades (I feel old now), I've used A LOT of strings. Also, they record VERY well, and seem to keep the tuning well. Much more sparkle, depth, and detail in my studio. I haven't noticed them playing easier (or harder), but they continue to sound awesome. So far (almost a month in) these strings totally kick a55! They just keep sounding new and awesome. :D Totally worth the investment. That's my $.02

        Best Light Strings Available

        By Jay Gould _

        from Hidden Valley Lake, CA

        Comments about Elixir Light Nanoweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I have used Elixirs on my son's Martin and they perform brilliantly. Lively, great tone, and they hold their tuning. I also have used Elixir lights on my Guild 12-strings for years. As such, it was not much of a surprise that they were standard issue on my new Taylor 614ce, as I found out they are on all Taylor guitars. These are just the best. A bit more expensive than some others, but worth every penny to the serious player.

        Sterile lack warmth bass responce

        By TOM LUKAS

        from Fremont, Ca

        Comments about Elixir Light Nanoweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I put these strings on my Martin D18 and was disappointed with them. These strings diminished the bass and overall harmonic overtones that I am used to hearing from my guitar when strung with Martin/D'Addario phosphor-bronze sets. This is the first set of coated strings I've used on my guitar so I can only judge them against non-coated strings.

        Long Life?

        By Mike Lavelle

        from Springfield VA

        Comments about Elixir Light Nanoweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I bought a set of these strings for my acoustic guitar and was very dissapointed. Keep in mind that I do not play acoustic guitar very often and when I do, I play very lightly. Just a few days after having these strings the coating started to flake off leaving dust and debris all over the instrument and giving the strigs a crusty feeling. If I am paying extra money for a set of coated guitar strings, I expect the coating to actually stay on. If you are looking for really good quality acoustic strings, buy "Auroras." I put a set of these on my guitar 3 years ago and have not had to change them since! There was litterally no sign of wear and tear untill I played "Dueling Banjos" at a concert last year. Lots of bright color options too! stringsbyaurora.com, check it out!

        Great Strings

        By carlos

        from mountlake terrace WA

        Comments about Elixir Light Nanoweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        These strings were by far the best ive had so far. Ive tryed at lest three other trypes of stngs that eather broke or frayed quicky and couldnt hold a note. The one complaint i had was, it took long time to get the strings broken in. Over all theyve held up to my constant abuse. I play hard rock and some metal with my guitar so these strings can take all you can give them.

        Nice tone, high breakage

        By Joe

        from Huntly, VA

        Comments about Elixir Light Nanoweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        At one point I couldn't get through a show without the G string breaking. Spent money having my bridge looked at by 2 luthiers to no avail. They always break at the bridge. On my HD28, D35 and Taylor. I thought I had bought some from a 'bad lot' but it doesn't go away, always the G, at the bridge, durn near every show. But the tone is exemplary...the 'longevity' of tone doesn't do much for me if I can only get 2-3 hours of good playing before I have to buy another $5.00 single string. So there is stopping in the middle of a song, changing the string, very awkward, just about every perfomance - @ one venue folks mention how weird it is if I actually get through a night without breaking one...that's pretty weak.
