Overview

Amp up your guitar’s tone life with the same premium electric 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.

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

Engineered to endure, these nickel-plated steel electric guitar strings boast a ton of bright, vibrant presence and dynamic punch. Compared to our original POLYWEB Coating, the ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating allows a more traditionally textured, "uncoated" feel.

For a slicker, gentler feel, try a set of electric guitar strings with Elixir's original POLYWEB Coating, which also feature a warmer tone.

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.

These strings have lasted me about three to four months without having to change them. The tone has even lasted through all down tuning I do with it, which means all the way down to drop A#!!!! I highly reccomend these strings to anyone looking for a great value!

I received these strings as a promo... and I must say with all honesty, even though they didn't cost me anything, these strings are not even worth the time and effort it took to put them on. After about 3 days, the magical "space-age polymer tube" that they gloat about started to peel off like dead skin and get all over my pickups and fingerboard. Ironically, after the polymer wore off completely (about 4 or 5 days) it only took an additional 3 or 4 days for the discoloration and rust to begin. So, in fact, this product did the exact opposite from what the advertising claims. I usually change strings once a month, but these didn't even make it that long. I highly discourage anybody from using this brand, especially since they feel the need to charge twice as much as a regular pair of strings.

Cant beat em'

By Kevin

from Davie, Florida

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.009-.046):

These string made me stop buying any ernie ball strings because ernie ball strings would always feel like there a year old after a month. It got annoying when i went to slide and they cut my fingers. But these strings can bend better then them and last wayyyyyyyyyy longer. They dont even compare. The price may be higher but its because they are that much better. Worth every penny. Just buy one pack and you will be oming back for more in a seciond.THESE STRINGS LAST SO MUCH LONGER.

The Coating

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.009-.046):

these strings are the most wonderful sounding and FEELING strings i have ever played. before i discovered elixir strings i was stuck on dean markley cryo's and since then i have played almost all the strings our there. elixirs have the best tone, and they don't feel sticky and gross like most other strings do. they're ready to play when you are and thats what i want out f a string. a great buy for me

Crazy good

By stratguy123456

from seattle WA

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.009-.046):

I been searching for just the right string for a while now and I found it. The 9-46 elixer are wounderfull becuase the top strings are nice and light, great for bending and playing really fast. Then the lower strings have a more thick sustianing tone, esspically great for playing clean. Then last it's been 3 months and I play 1 to 4 hours a day and they still sound brand new with that clear sound. I love this type of string!

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.009-.046):

In my experience, I̴��ve found these strings to be even better than the 9 42. Because of the fatter low strings, but all I need to do is put them on and wipe then with a claen cloth before I play and that̴��s it. just like new! they might not be perfect but they are greate

Great Strings

By Somebody

from Connecticut

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.009-.046):

These strings are the GREATEST! I literally put the string through the tuner, tuned the guitar and played it! Nothing like normal strings where you have to wait for them to stretch out or anything like that. The other thing I like about these is the gauge, 9-46 is perfect for me because I dont have the strength to bend 10s, but live I get the rich tone of 10s thanks to the heavy bottoms. They may be a bit more expensive.....ok so a lot more expensive than others, but you can FEEL and most importantly HEAR the difference!

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.009-.046):

these strings just feel right. i've been playing for about 15 years and have tried many different brands, but now i don't even like playing guitars at stores because of the stock strings. playing up and down the neck is smooth and almost skreech free. they also last much longer than any other brand i have used. i will recomend elixer to anyone and i wont play anything else

      They don't go dead. Save so much on strings over time. No other brand of coated string comes close.
