I had heard good things about these strings so I had high expectations when I got them, but I'm still impressed with them. I have been using Martin strings (which sound great, don't get me wrong) but they start to wear out way faster than these strings do. Maybe it's because I have sweaty hands, but the Martin strings will start to look a bit discolored after as little as a day if I'm playing a lot. I have been playing a fair amount on these for a few days now and they still look like (and sound like) I just put them on. Very vibrant sound. I've noticed the sound of my fingers moving up and down the strings seems to be quieter as well, the strings almost feel smoother if that's something you're looking for.
Peanut butter and Jelly, eggs and ham, Elixir strings and Taylor guitars what could be better? Great strings and other fine products such as guitar cables, too!
They feel awesome out of the box with very little string noise. They do have a wax-like coating but its not unfavorable. I like it, it makes sliding less difficult and the sound is impeccable. I would say that the whole set of strings can last you a month of playing everyday for a few hours a day, longer if you dont play as much. Just wipe down the strings after every session (I use an patch of an old t-shirt). Great strings worth the money for strings that you want on your guitar for awhile. Crisp and full, after about a month of everyday playing you can change the high e string and b string and you can easily get another month out of the strings! (the high e and b strings arent coated but thats good)
I play an Epiphone Masterbilt DR-500 now...I have had several other guitars & plenty of "cheap" guitars to carry with me, I like to have a guitar with me at all times, they get tossed around a lot in my vehicle, exposed to cold/heat conditions....I switched to these strings a long time ago and have never looked at any other strings since. They play great and hold their tone very well...don't worry about the price, worry about the sound & wear when you buy strings...they've made my cheap guitars sound like more expensive ones...excellent sound & quality !!!! ...money well spent !!!
elixir's are my absolute favorite strings. they are expensive, but they rarely need changed. They play like they are brand new strings until the end of their life and can make an ok guitar sound much fuller. And last and certainly not least they are very easy on the fingers.
Elixir Nanoweb Extra Light Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Strings are by far the best I have ever played... They do last much longer than others I have played but it does get expensive when you start changing strings on about a dozen guitars... I actually use a more inexpensive string on my instruments that are not played as much as my Martin, Carvin, or Takimine... I just wish they were a bit cheaper... You actually do get what you pay for with these strings...
