Overview

Strum confidently 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?

Engineered to endure, these acoustic strings constructed with phosphor bronze wrap wire boast a dynamic balance of rich, full-bodied tone and sparkling high-end clarity. 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 strings with their original POLYWEB Coating. The 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating, for example, might be a good fit if you want a more robust and rounded tone. On the other end of the tone spectrum, Elixir's 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating deliver a brighter, crisper tone alongside the same traditional feel as these phosphor bronze strings.

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. Jam on and on (and on) with the same premium electric bass guitar strings that experienced players worldwide trust to keep their incredible tone longer than any other string available.

Specially developed based on in-depth feedback from more than a thousand bass players just like you, Elixir Strings' tailor-made selection of bass strings proudly includes nickel-plated and stainless steel construction options, four-, five- and six-string sets, long and extra-long scales, and virtually every gauge range you could possibly need. All with their innovative string coating technology. And 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?

Premium by design, these electric bass guitar strings constructed with nickel-plated steel wrap wire boast a rich, rounded tone with incredible clarity and a heavy mid-range presence. Meanwhile, the ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating, redesigned specifically for bass guitars, allows a smooth, natural feel that also enhances grip and reduces finger squeak.

For a brighter bass tone, try our Stainless Steel Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating.

Of course, the kind of string you play is all a matter of personal preference. Not sure what tone is right for you? Try them out for yourself, and find your new favorite string from Elixir Strings.

My Taylor 314 CE came loaded with these strings and I thought they sounded pretty good. I listened to the sound of the strings on my Big Baby Taylor which were not Elixir's and thought the strings sounded better. I had an extra set of the Elixir HD Lights so rather then put them on the 314 CE I decided to use them on the Big Baby. Months went by and these little champions never went flat and they tune right up nicely in fact if anything these strings have aged so nicely I am not even thinking about changing them for a while. The other strings I put on the 314 CE just got replaced with these Elixir's ... I have found my "go to" strings and will use these strings from now on. I love the .053 to .013 gauging for a "light" string. These strings are absolutely awesome!

Got a set of these to replace some medium, coated Martins, on my Gibson Songwriter Deluxe. They have great feel and action but are a little stiffer than I would think a "light" set would be.

If I had it to do again again, I would get a light PB set and be happier. YMMV.

Finally! Acoustic Tone

By Von Martt

from Finger Lakes area, New York

Comments about Elixir Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, HD Light (.013-.053):

For years I've been buying and installing a .013 and .017 on 1 and 2 and now this is so great to be able to buy a set all together with a added bonus of the 3rd string being .024 [just slightly heavier]. As a fingerstyle player this HD set is perfect and strumming chords seem cleaner. all I can say it's about time...Thanks!

Great Tone

By John Rich

from Fountain, CO

Comments about Elixir Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, HD Light (.013-.053):

I have played Phosphor Bronze strings for years. I also always upgraded the first string to a .013 because I liked how it feels and sounds. The Elixir HD Phosphor Bronze light strings make the two guitars I put them on sound the best they have ever sounded. Tone is subjective of course, but I have changed to Elixir HD Lights and agree with their assessment of the sound and feel of the strings. All six strings sound great, but the top three improved an almost unbelievable amount. Try them.

Great strings so far

By Mike Viles

from Bend, OR

Comments about Elixir Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, HD Light (.013-.053):

I have been using Daddario EXP16 light for 3-4 years with no problems but I was interested how the heavier gauge strings of the Elixir HD lights string worked. I put them on my Breedlove C25SMe and I am impressed so far (2 weeks). The trebles and bass strings seem a little better balanced. Something else I notice is less tuning issues when using a capo. The treble strings are not as sensitive to how I put the capo on.

Sound amazing

By MATTHEW

from los angeles, ca

Comments about Elixir Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, HD Light (.013-.053):

The nanoweb coating decreases string noise, lasts forever, and is easier on your fingers. couple that with a set of strings that sounds great and makes small body guitars sound full, and you got yourself a sweet set of strings!

    Comments about Elixir Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, HD Light (.013-.053):

    I've used this brand for a long time and loved the tone. They last forever compared to any other brands I've tried. When I bought these online I didn't realize that they were different then the regular light strings I usually purchase in the store, however I will make sure that I buy these from now on since they sound even better. I didn't think I could find anything better than the light nanoweb, but leave it to elixir to one up themselves. I'm a big fan!

    Comments about Elixir Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, HD Light (.013-.053):

    I decided to check out what the hype was all ablut, and am I glad I did. I usually use medium gauge strings so it took a some playing to get used to the tone of these... But now that I have, oh my! These things simply ring with perfection unlike anything I've ever heard before. I put a set of these on a hundred dollar guitar and it simply sounds amazing. 10/10 will definitely be using these from now on.

              They sound great. I recently had 2 G strings break in a row at a performance when I attempted to raise the g string pitch to A, for a modal tuning. I play with an agressive style that involves pulloffs on some songs. These strings tear my fingers up somewhat when playing those songs.
