In movies and books, an elixir is usually some kind of magic potion... which makes it a fitting name for Elixir acoustic guitar strings. The 'magic' with these American-made strings is in the special fluoropolymer coating. It's been called the biggest advancement to come to the string industry in decades, and it gives them incredibly long life. Elixir's coating sheds dust, skin oils and other debris, so the strings keep on looking, feeling and sounding like new for much longer than traditional ones. The more use your guitar sees, the bigger the benefit - which is why Elixir strings are popular with hard-working musicians like Melissa Etheridge, Kenny Loggins and Miranda Lambert.
If you're ready to give Elixir strings a try on your own acoustic guitar, then all you have to do is look through the options to find the right set for your personal playing style and instrument. For fans of light strings in 80/20 bronze, there are choices like the Elixir Polyweb Acoustic Light Strings and the Nanoweb HD Light 80/20 Acoustic Guitar Strings. Prefer phosphor bronze instead? Check out the Nanoweb Light Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings. And there are plenty of sets for those of us who like things a little heavier, from the Elixir Medium Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings to the Nanoweb Medium Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings.
You'll also find lots to love about Elixir if you're the sort of guitarist who prefers to stock up. Of course, that's something you need to do less of when your strings last three to five times as long... But Elixir strings have such a great shelf life that you can get away with it all the same. Take a look at bundles like the Elixir Polyweb Light Acoustic Guitar Strings 8 Pack or Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings 8 Pack - they've got you covered whether you're a frequent performer building up a reserve, or a music teacher shopping for the whole class.
Even single strings are available in this section, so don't hesitate to look for exactly what you need - if it's in the realm of acoustic guitar strings, chances are high that Elixir can satisfy. They've been doing just that for about two decades, after all: delivering all the tone and playability of an uncoated string with even better durability than the average coated one. That formula makes it plain to see why they're among the most trusted guitar strings around.
