Overview

Thanks to Elixir's OPTIWEB Coating, these nickel-plated steel electric guitar strings give you the performance of natural string – that crisp tone, natural feel and playable grip you know and love – without sacrificing the signature, long-lasting tone life of Elixir Strings. Compared to their POLYWEB Coating and NANOWEB Coating, the OPTIWEB Coating offers the most natural and familiar feel Elixir strings offers. This lightweight coating allows the string to vibrate with less damping, while also having a firm grip, putting you in control of bends, vibrato and sustain.

So choose 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 coat 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?

For a slicker, gentler feel, try a set of electric guitar strings with Elixir's POLYWEB Coating, which also features their warmest tone. Meanwhile, their NANOWEB coated strings sound bright and feel smooth, striking a dynamic balance between POLYWEB Coating and OPTIWEB 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.

    Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with OPTIWEB Coating, Light (.010-.046):

    Okay, so I currently work at Guitar Center Jackson Mississippi, as a guitar rep. They gave some of us a pack of these and I said, sure I'll give them a shot! I recently converted to NYXL strings after a 10 year love/hate relationship with Ernie Ball. When I got these Optiweb strings I put a standard gauge on my LTD 401QM. At first I didn't think much of them. They felt like a new string. Sounded fresh. They seemed to be very basic. But as I took them to gigs, which I do very regularly, I tended to notice my other guitars onstage would have the usual crud on them. But not these Elixirs. After wiping them down they looked and felt new. And what's nice is they feel really well made, not like a cheapy string. And I should also add I've never been a fan of Elixirs or coated strings until I got these. Definitely not the usual treatment. I've been playing very regularly onstage and practicing daily on these strings for about a month. Still good. IF you don't like changing your strings often and you have a bit of extra cash, try them. You may like them! I don't think these are a gimmick and I would know because I sell them. I gotta say, I'm impressed. Well done Elixir!

    Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with OPTIWEB Coating, Light (.010-.046):

    Tried these today and am VERY IMPRESSED ! Already a fan of Elixirs;which are the only strings I use on acoustic and electrics, I have been using Nanowebs on all of my guitars for over 10 years. IMOP , they are the best sounding , feeling and longest lasting strings on the planet. I cannot believe these strings have any coating on them,but they do ! They are crisp and full of tone when bending and with vibrato. They have a semi slick feel and are very comfortable to play.As far as I can tell ,these are my new and ONLY strings for electrics, although Nanowebs are great , I now like these better. Once again ,praise to Elixir for making great strings.

    Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with OPTIWEB Coating, Light (.010-.046):

    I recently borrowed a Jazz bass at a show and fell in love with the neck. This model had a very similar neck combined with the Precision body and what seemed like more versatile tone options, so I upgraded.

    Besides slightly loose volume pots, the build quality is phenomenal - the frets are very well dressed, finish is consistent all over, and nothing else is amiss. It's a lovely instrument.

    So far I've only played through my smaller amp (a Rumble 100), but the pickup combination delivers the expected tonal range. I mostly like the bass/low mid bloom of the Precision-style pickup, but I can get that while still having note definition with this bass. I'm excited to run it through my higher wattage amps.
