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.

As a professional musician, I have used the Elixer Brand on all my electrics from Tele's to 335's and all my acoustics from Taylors to Martins and they perform superbly every time. The feel is smooth, the sound is great, the string noise is minimum and they last long even through hard playing. The Elixer's record clean and clear in the studio. As a touring player, I have used them for years and will continue for may years to come. My advise to those that break strings, get a good quality guitar with a proper set up and your problems will be solved. Elixers are worth the money,

I use Ernie Ball Slinky 10's because they are affordable and sound good. However, I can tear through a set of those in 3 days due to the sweat my hand produces after playing for a while. I decided to try Ernie Ball Cobalts which sounded fantastic, and they did wear somewhat better, but not as long as I hoped for the price. Enter Elixer Nanowebs. They feel absolutely amazing to me, super slippery, very little string squeak, but the tone is really lacking. The coating on the strings definately takes away from the bright high end, and the bite my Strat normally has. Going from the Ernie Ball Cobalts to these was very dramatic, as the colbalts were very bright. If I could find the tone of the Cobalts with the feel of Elixers, I'd be happy, but I probably won't be buying these again. Its like shoving a sock in your guitars mouth instead of letting it sing. 5 stars for the feel and longevity, but tone gets a -5 from me.

Sweet Strings

By guitar stringer

from U.S

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light (.010-.046):

Elixir strings are some of the best strings out there. So when my guitar needed new strings I chose Elixir. They make my guitar sound like new and they're great for the price. They actually reduce fret noise when changing chords and they last 4 times longer than others. Be prepared to tune constantly for a few days and then they stay in tune great. Overall I'm chosing Elixir for my next string purchase.

Best strings on the market

By dude that knows

from anytown USA

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light (.010-.046):

The coating makes them last forever. I have a set on my SG standard that has lasted for over a year and if you played it you would assume they are new. No better strings out there, the guy that wrote the bad reveiw needs to learn to tune his guitar without breaking strings.

Elixir light nanoweb electric guitar strings

By Stantheguitarman

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light (.010-.046):

Heard impressive things about the sound and longevity of Elixir strings and have played them myself on accoustic electric. Yet this particular set of strings only lasted a couple weeks on my Les Paul Standard. Also, I was upset that guitar went out of tune way too often.

OVERPRICED FOR CHEAP STRINGS

By Mike

from Minnesota

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light (.010-.046):

Theres no way 1 pack is 10 bucks or more. I buy bulk on a few diffrent brands and get 10 sets for the price of this 1 set. THE 1ST STRING BROKE IN 3 DAYS. i have seen a dog make better strings than these. Anti rust...how could they rust since they dont last more than a week. BOTTOM LINE GO WITH AN OTHER BRAND NEVER BUY THESE

The only choice for professional players

By PVinKC

from Kansas City, Missouri

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light (.010-.046):

Since the moment I first tried these strings they have been the ONLY strings that I put on my electrics and acoustics. Just be sure to stretch 'em out good and put them on a decent instrument with a proper set-up and you'll have many hours of use. They take everything that I throw at them and keep on tickin'. The guy who wrote a bad review must work for another manufacturer or doesn't know how to tune or set up a guitar properly. BUY THESE!!!

BEST STRINGS

By I know what I'm talking about

from Pasadena, CA

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light (.010-.046):

These strings are quite amazing. Unlike other strings that just lose that new string quality these stay "fresh" for a really long time. Usually I have to change strings every couple of weeks but these have really lasted. Great tone they just need to be stretched out like every other string. They stay in-tune really well and if anyone complains that they don't they either don't know how to string a guitar or they need a new set up. Over all great buy, kind of expensive for strings but totally worth it.

Great Strings for Kicking Out The Jams

By Sloan

from Maryland / Tennessee

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light (.010-.046):

I've been using Elixers for quite a number of years now. They feel good a long time. I recently did a test with a set of regular Ernie Ball strings and concluded that within two hours of constant playing, they were already reaching an almost unplayable state. This just won't do since I usually play 4-6 hours at a regular gig. I've had a set on one guitar that have been there almost a year now. I still can't believe I haven't had to change them yet. The only reason I buy regular strings now is to use as backups so if I break a string, I can replace it in between sets. They may cost more upfront, but will save you money in the long run.

Great Product

By Colin

from Delaware

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light (.010-.046):

At first, I was skeptical. I had heard from my uncle that these strings had no tone. Well, he was wrong. I put these on an old junker guitar, and it sounded beautiful through a clean amp. The strings are coated, which help your fingers move better on the neck. They stay in good tune, and do not rust. I was playing 1+ hours a day, 7 days a week, not wiping the strings when they were done, and they lasted 4 months. I was amazed. They are a little more expensive, but they are worth their weight in gold.

I Have Finally Found the Right Strings

By Justin

from Tolland, CT

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light (.010-.046):

Originally I had thought the Elixir strings were all about just longer life. Also, I was skeptical and thought it might just be an over rated gimmick. Over the past three years, I've tried just about every one of the most popular lower priced strings. Some were good, but not great, and one in particular broke constantly. Then I bought a Taylor Big Baby that came with Elixir Nanowebs. It sounded and played so well I didn't want to try anything else. They really did last longer than other strings and they sound perfect. Now I tried these on my Epiphone Les Paul Ultra-II and it also sounds perfect and still sounds and plays great after about 3X the time of my previous strings. Plus with similar playing, no breakage. Just give them a try and you will see. And, if you price them per hour of play, they can actually come out less expensive than other strings...
