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.

I have had about ~5 sets of these on my Martin D15 and they seem to hit the sweet spot for playability, durability and tone. The tone is a full sounding warm -> balanced/clear mid range . So these are not what I would describe as particularly bright or trebly. Thats fine by me since celtic/gypsy sounds better mellow, I even prefer bluegrass with the treble rolled off a bit (no Taylors for me!). Great solid choice, usually last me ~ 6 months playing 4-5 hours a week. Last set went a bit quicker (~4 months). Sound transfers well to recordings. I will be using them til they change the formula.

      Lovely strings! Sounds amazing, lasts forever. Medium gauge has slightly more body but brutal on my fingers after a couple hours. Won't use any other acoustic strings!
      Best pricing around only at Musicians Friend!

      Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating, Light (.012-.053):

      I've been playing professionally for over 50 years and have used many brands of acoustic and electric strings. Elixir strings have bright, even tone across the range of highs and lows and keep that tone over many hours of playing. After years of using Elixir Polyweb strings I'm still amazed at how long they last, retain tone and stay in tune.
