Overview

Prolong your tone with the same premium electric 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.

Who wouldn’t love more quality playing time between the hassle and cost of string changes?

Crafted to last, these nickel-plated steel electric guitar strings boast a warm, robust tone while the POLYWEB Coating brings a slick, fast feel to the playing experience.

For a more traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel and a brighter, punchier tone, try Elixir electric guitar strings with ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating.

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.

easy on your fingers and fretts!

By David Timmons

from indiana

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating, Super Light (.009-.042):

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!

You will not find a better quality Guitar string Set.

By Jim

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating, Super Light (.009-.042):

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

Game Changer

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating, Super Light (.009-.042):

I couldn't believe how good these strings are. I previously used Ernie Ball Super Slinky which are fine strings, but these are just on a whole other level. The tone seems to bring out more clarity and smooth out some of the unwanted harshness you get playing in a high gain setting. The coating allows you to just slide up and down the fretboard like melting butter, ultra smooth. They also seem to stay in tune a lot better than any strings I've played. These strings justify the higher price not just in durability, but in tone and feel.

Game Changing Strings

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating, Super Light (.009-.042):

I played the typical Ernie Ball pink package, Super Slinky strings for as long as I've played guitar and they are good strings. But these are great strings!! I've read some reviewers talk about the long life of the strings, which is a good bonus. But the feel of the coating on the strings, the warmer tone and the ability to stay in tune longer than most strings are my favorite features. The feel while I'm playing them with that coating is amazing. All of the strings just slide like butter in your fingers. The tone is also warmer than my old strings. Lastly, when I tune my guitar, the tuning isn't near as far out. Just slight adjustments.

super light.

By Joe

from jersey city nj

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating, Super Light (.009-.042):

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..
