Elixir Electric Guitar Strings are covered with an ultrathin, space-age polymer tube that contacts the string on the tops of the windings only. This leaves the all-important winding-to-winding-to-core space free from the fear of the enemies of tone! No more gunk and goo. No more DNA evidence. No kidding.
In addition to an ultrathin grunge-resistant tubular coating on the wound strings, Polywebs now have a revolutionary Anti-Rust plating on the plain strings to extend their life too.
Elixirs are the first major innovation in guitar strings in over forty years, and deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what you put them on or how often you play.

I've been playing Elixir strings since they came out.I've been playing 10's.I decided to give 9's a try. Love them!They sound great, play great,I highly recommend them!
this strings are softer and can be bended more easyly. the result is that you can play faster,, i noticed while playing a fast solo tht iuse to play in one of my songs. but the only problem, at least for me, are the armonics of the second and third strings, sounds a little diferent and weak than regular strings, but i don't complain for that..
You will not find a better quality Guitar string Set. I have worked at a music store for many years and had lived in Alaska for 3 years. I bought Elixir Polywebs for my main guitar while in alaska they stayed on that guitar for the whole 3 years when I came back to Chicago went to a music store and couldn't find Elixir's and was thinking I need new strings, so I bought D'Addario XL120 big mistake my old strings still sounded better than the D'Addario's even after 3 years! So I ordered them since guitar center did not have the 9-42's in stock and have never looked elsewhere. I have been a big Ernie Ball Super Slinkies, Fender, George L's and Dimarzio string fan for years before these came out and would have to change my strings every 2-3 months. Now I will only buy another brand in emergency until I can get my hands on a set of Elixir's! Hope this helps
at the start of my playing, i was addicted to blue steels for my american standard strat. once i went out on a limb and tried elixirs, i will never go back. i am blessed to know several gigging musicians, the most respected of whom gave me this advice..."try elixirs, blue steels have great tone but eat your fretts fast." then he showed me his example. as a player who's son plays as well, i want my fender strat to stay as well kept as possible. that way, he it becomes his, it may well still be pristine. Elixir polycoates feel great, sound great, and in my opinion, do less damage to your axe!
