Overview

Jam on and on (and on) with the same premium 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?

Crafted to last, these acoustic strings constructed with 80/20 (80% copper, 20% zinc) bronze wrap wire boast a warm, robust tone that sounds "played-in" right out of the pack while still retaining a remarkably clear mid-range presence. The POLYWEB Coating brings a soft, slick, and fast feel to the playing experience.

For a more traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel, try Elixir's ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating. The 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, for example, might be a good fit, especially if you’re also looking for a crisper, brighter, and more vibrant tone. For strings that strike a dynamic balance between full-bodied tone and sparkling high-end clarity, our Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings deliver exactly that alongside our NANOWEB Coating’s more traditional feel.

  • Original POLYWEB coating provides a soft, smooth feel that keeps the strings from getting in the way of playing
  • Patented coating technology protects against common corrosion, extending tone life longer than any other brand’s coated or uncoated strings (Elixir Strings player survey)

My 14 year old daughter began to apply her knowledge of Music Teory, Keyboard, and Trumpet, to my 1978 Ibanez Acoustic (Martin Copy). It was strung with Medium to High-Grade, Medium-Gauge strings. I decided I was long overdue to give this guitar a completely fresh Set-Up, and chose these strings, and I began to give her the guitar lessons she's been asking for. When I was done, she picked up this guitar, and after playing a few of her Self-Taught Chords and Melodies, the smile on her face was PRICELESS! The Tone Quality Excellent! I was truly amazed, especially for such Light Gauge Strings! The Ease Of Playing, compared to some of the previous strings I've used on this guitar, is much better, with very little, if any, loss of a nice, rich tone! After a couple of hours, she was playing Rhythm, as I played Lead and varous Melodies on my Stratocaster! I was sure glad I paid the few extra dollars for these strings! Enough Said! Try These Out! You'll Be Glad You Did!

i donno if this really is long lasting...i used martin SP before i tried the elixirs. I was told how CRAZY these strings were and longetivity of it. I gotta admit that there's something different about these strings and they seem to be better, but i've broken more than 10 strings for the past 2weeks i played. I RARELY broke my martins...i'm getting doubts on these elixirs..

      I am picking the guitar backup after 15 years and needed something easy on my fingers. After reading previous review I decided to give these a try and I am pleased with the results in feel and sound quality.

        No surprise on the Elixirs. They're always superb. The point worth making is that due to a sloppy handoff from UPS to the Postal Service, the strings did not arrive on time — in fact, very late. But when I called Musician's Friend about it, they sent me another set as an apology, even though it wasn't their fault. Another example of exceptional customer service from MF. Thanks, Elijah and MF!

            These strings sounded terrible. Plink plunk, no chime at all, like a banjo. Replaced them with Martin silk and phosphor, way better.

              I like to keep my guitars as close to factory/point of purchase stock as possible. I did go one gauge lighter for better playability being a singer/strummer and not having to worry about string breakage! Where I live music stores are few and far so now I rely Musician'sFriend for all my future musical needs.

              Thank goodness I ordered 2 packs of strings. I wanted to put these on due to reviews I have read about being easier on the fingers. I am a novice. I did break the G string upon install, but blame myself for too fast of a tightening or whatever.
              These are easier on my fingers an ring out just fine. I like and will order more for next time.

                  I've been using Elixer's medium polywebs on my accoustic for years, just assuming they were the best choice. As I age, my hand strength has decreased, so a freind suggested the Extra Lights. I balked, thinking, "No, those will sound tinny with no bottom." Wrong. They sound great, and are much easier to sound at the first fret. Try em, you'll like em.

                    I use both Nanoweb and Polyweb Elixirs. I have found both to be top quality, lasting about 3 times longer than other brands. They sound great, feel good and are priced right for the amount of time they last.
