Elixir Medium Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings are crafted for musicians seeking peak performance and playability. Boasting Elixir's innovative Polyweb coating, these strings retain a robust, warm tone while preventing the buildup of tone-deadening debris that plagues uncoated strings. The coating's slick and fast feel allows for effortless fingering along the neck.

Polyweb Coating: Protection and Playability

Elixir's patented Polyweb coating encapsulates each string, shielding not just the outer surface, but also the gaps between windings where gunk typically accumulates in other brands. This barrier keeps each string fresh-sounding, maintaining a clear midrange presence and playable feel. While uncoated strings can sound dull in just days, Elixir Polyweb strings provide up to 5 times more tone life.

80/20 Bronze: Full-Bodied Tone

Constructed of 80/20 bronze wrap wire, these medium gage strings produce a warm, robust tone that sounds "played-in" right out of the pack. The bronze alloy exhibits an ideal balance of brightness and depth, yielding rich overtones and harmonics. Combined with the Polyweb coating, these strings deliver a rich, nuanced sound with crisp articulation.

Medium Gauge: Versatile and Responsive

With gauges of .013, .017, .026, .035, .045, and .056, the medium set offers a versatile and responsive feel for a variety of musical styles. The slightly lighter first and second strings facilitate intricate fingerpicking, while the heavier lower strings provide full projection and sustain. This balanced tension also minimizes fret buzz, allowing each note to ring out with clarity.

Built to Last

Elixir Polyweb strings are designed and tested to endure the challenges of consistent play. Anti-rust plating on the plain steel strings prevents premature corrosion. The durable Polyweb coating is highly resistant to buildup and wear, enabling these strings to outlast all other coated and uncoated acoustic guitar strings currently on the market.
