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,

Although the strings are advertised as having a long life, I've found them to break easily while bending or tuning. You have to consider that the nanoweb coating Elixer puts on these strings decreases from the monetary resources left over for the actual string; it ends up being cheaper in order to maintain a competitive price. The coating wears off easily and proves to be pretty useless except for serving to make the string slipperier and slidier. As a result, the strings feel smoother on your hands and create less noise from rubbing against them. I like this string noise, and the friction it's caused by helps me, personally, to feel the distance I'm sliding across the string. In other words, it's easier to keep track of where I'm at on the neck. The only possible reason I could think of to use Elixer's would be if you never bend and you really like the slippery feel that they give. I did use them for a while for this purpose, but I now find them to be too slippery. If you are a novice, please look at Ernie Ball or D'addario strings. They withstand more punishment and they have a much more popular, natural, human sound.

Sorry but won't buy again

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

I tried these strings because my sweat can kill a regular pair of strings in a couple of days. The coating works, the strings haven't corroded as fast as non coated ones. Having said that, I don't like these strings, they feel lifeless and to use a technical term "weird", they feel more like 11 gauge strings and are lacking something that has me focusing on the strings and not my playing. I want to get money's worth out of these strings before I go back to ernie balls but the coating works well so it may be awhile

        If you sweat when you play do yourself a favor. These are fantastic for that reason. No rust or dead sounding strings anymore. They will last and will settle in with very little tuning needed from week to week.

              Picked up learning guitar seriously about 2 years ago. These were recommended by a friend who is a very good player. Since I'm still at the beginner level, my ear hasn't developed enough to tell the difference in tone but I like that they stay in tune and last a long time.
