Elixirs are the first major innovation in strings in over forty years and they deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what you put them on or how often you play.
Elixir Nanoweb Mandolin Strings are covered with an ultrathin, space-age polymer tube that contacts the string on the tops of the windings only. They're coated with the patented Nanoweb technology. This leaves the all-important winding-to-winding-to-core space free from the enemies of tone!
Most players report that Elixir Strings keep sounding great 3 to 5 times longer than ordinary strings.

I hate to gush, but these strings are the best! I love the feel, and sound. The sound was and still is spot on after several weeks of heavy playtime. These strings also just slide so easily, and I love having that option. Some strings I've used, like martin and john pearse, have only been good for sliding on when they were brand new. Elixirs blow them away as far as feel and sound. Nice even sound, balanced. Not really loud like other strings I've used! Hardly any "string talk" to speak of. Mandolin strings can be loud, like annoyingly loud, tinny and twangy. Of elixirs, I have found no equal.
I am a mandolin player as well as tenor banjo and guitarist also fiddle in Celtic, Jazz, Bluegrass bands. I discovered the great sound of Elixir strings through a friend. After using these strings I have found that with Elixir one can get such a better sound especilly in acostic settings. The overall string life is unbelievable, if you are a true musician, you owe it to yourself to go with Elixir. 5-star rating, and what more can I say, go with the best!
These are the best strings I have ever played on. They really do make a difference. They are easy to slide on and have a great tone!
