Overview

Jam on and on (and on) with the same premium acoustic 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?

Crafted to last, these acoustic strings constructed with 80/20 (80% copper, 20% zinc) bronze wrap wire boast a warm, robust tone that sounds "played-in" right out of the pack while still retaining a remarkably clear mid-range presence. The POLYWEB Coating brings a soft, slick, and fast feel to the playing experience.

For a more traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel, try Elixir's ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating. The 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, for example, might be a good fit, especially if you’re also looking for a crisper, brighter, and more vibrant tone. For strings that strike a dynamic balance between full-bodied tone and sparkling high-end clarity, our Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings deliver exactly that alongside our NANOWEB Coating’s more traditional feel.

There's a reason Taylor guitars come from the factory strung with Elixirs...they are quite simply the best sounding, and the highest quality, strings on the market. The "polyweb" construction does result in the strings lasting at least twice as long as regular strings (if not a little longer). An unexpected benefit, is that the coating provides some protection against fret wear...it's polyweb vs. the frets, as opposed to a metal string vs. the frets. When playing on island venues, I've also found that the coating prevents the corrosion that was occuring seemingly overnight, due to the unavoidable exposure to the elements (such as high humidity).

I tried Elixir strings several years ago and literally cut them off my D35 Martin they sounded so bad. Recently playing a friends D35 Martin, I noticed how warm the phosphor bronze strings sounded. They had just the right mix of clarity and softness making it easy to harmonize vocals with the music. Unlike the tinny sound of most phosphor bronze strings used for volume in Bluegrass, these offered warmth that did not override the vocals. I checked the setup and found it identical to my own. She told me they were medium, Phosphor Bronze, Nanoweb, Elixir strings. I decided to try them again and this time they worked. I may have put Polyweb 80/20 Bronze strings on the first time but it is for sure these are not that first set I tried. The sound is rich and so far so good. I gave them three stars because, until I play them a while, I will not be able to really give an accurate account of their longevity in operation or sustaining tone. After using them for a while, I will update my evaluation of them.

              Polyweb vs. Nanoweb

              By Chris

              from Atascadero, CA

              Site Member

              Comments about Elixir Medium Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

              I've tried the Nanoweb and the Polyweb on my Blueridge and prefer the Polyweb. My guitar is naturally bright and the Nanowebs seemed to make it even brighter. The Polywebs seem to tame the jangle a bit and allow the deeper bass notes to shine through. The Polywebs seem to last longer since they have more coating, but the extra coating does take away from the natural feel unlike the Nanowebs. The Polywebs do give you less string noise in recording sessions which I like. All personal preference here, but that's my 2 cents.
