Thanks to Elixir's OPTIWEB Coating, these nickel-plated steel electric guitar strings give you the performance of a natural string—that crisp tone, natural feel and playable grip you know and love—without sacrificing the signature long-lasting tone life of Elixir Strings. Compared to their POLYWEB Coating and NANOWEB Coating, the OPTIWEB Coating offers their most natural and familiar feel. This lightweight coating allows the string to vibrate with less damping, while also having a firm grip, putting you in control of bends, vibrato and sustain.
So choose 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. 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?
For a slicker, gentler feel, try a set of electric guitar strings with their POLYWEB Coating, which also feature our warmest tone. Meanwhile, their NANOWEB coated strings sound bright and feel smooth, striking a dynamic balance between POLYWEB Coating and OPTIWEB Coating.

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with OPTIWEB Coating, Light/Heavy (.010-.052):
I have more than a dozen guitars so over the years I've used just about every kind of string there is. I started out back in the 60's with Black Diamond flat wound strings. There have been many changes over the years but today's strings are superior in every way compared to where it all started. The Elixir Optiweb strings are the best all around strings I have used in a long time. I got the set that goes from 10 to 52 and the bass response is just amazing. The price has gone up considerably but so has the quality. They sound better and last longer than ever before. If you haven't tried these strings yet, do yourself a favor and give them a try!
