Overview

Jam on and on (and on) with the same premium acoustic 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. 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?

Crafted to last, these acoustic strings constructed with 80/20 (80% copper, 20% zinc) bronze wrap wire boast a warm, robust tone that sounds "played-in" right out of the pack while still retaining a remarkably clear mid-range presence. The POLYWEB Coating brings a soft, slick, and fast feel to the playing experience.

For a more traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel, try Elixir's ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating. The 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, for example, might be a good fit, especially if you’re also looking for a crisper, brighter, and more vibrant tone. For strings that strike a dynamic balance between full-bodied tone and sparkling high-end clarity, our Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings deliver exactly that alongside our NANOWEB Coating’s more traditional feel.

There's a reason Taylor guitars come from the factory strung with Elixirs...they are quite simply the best sounding, and the highest quality, strings on the market. The "polyweb" construction does result in the strings lasting at least twice as long as regular strings (if not a little longer). An unexpected benefit, is that the coating provides some protection against fret wear...it's polyweb vs. the frets, as opposed to a metal string vs. the frets. When playing on island venues, I've also found that the coating prevents the corrosion that was occuring seemingly overnight, due to the unavoidable exposure to the elements (such as high humidity).

Guitar strings are a subjective thing, and it comes down to the users preference, so note that my take on these is based on my preference and not an indication of the quality of the product.
I bought these because I had heard many good things about Elixirs, but as I suspected the difference between coated/uncoated strings is not a positive one for me. These are labeled as being "slick & fast," but I find that they do just the opposite for me - the coating actually stops my fingers from sliding across the strings. The tone seems OK - I like a "duller" tone, as opposed to that bright, metallic new string sound - these are "warm" as labeled, but I'm still not really impressed with the tone they impart on my Martin D-28. I think I'm better off with the Martin strings that came on it. But again, this is just my preference, and the only way to really tell is to buy a pair and try them out. It's an inexpensive way to experiment with the tone/feel of your guitar.

Poor Man's Strings

By Eric

from Newnan GA

Comments about Elixir Medium Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I don't really have the money to buy a Martin Or Taylor. A buddy of mine told me about these strings, so I bought some-and I was blown away! They made my $100 Squier sound like a $1,000 Martin! And I have had them on it for almost a year now and they sound almost as good as the day I put them on. I'll never buy another string for my acoustic. Thanx, Elixir.

Great Strings

By TaylorPain

from Arlington, TN.

Comments about Elixir Medium Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I'm glad to see Elixir back on the shelf at GC. I get so much more for my money with the Poly Web strings. They just seem to last longer than any other string that I've tried. I love that bright, lively sound.

Great tone and a long life

By ibanez man

from Alexander,NC

Comments about Elixir Medium Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

There is 4 people in my family who play guitar we all choose Elixir.They have a great tone and a really long life, since there coated it is really easy to slide on these strings unlike martin strings; Dont get me wrong martin strings have great tone but a short life. Bottom line these are the best strings on the market.

Polyweb vs. Nanoweb

By Chris

from Atascadero, CA

Site Member

Comments about Elixir Medium Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I've tried the Nanoweb and the Polyweb on my Blueridge and prefer the Polyweb. My guitar is naturally bright and the Nanowebs seemed to make it even brighter. The Polywebs seem to tame the jangle a bit and allow the deeper bass notes to shine through. The Polywebs seem to last longer since they have more coating, but the extra coating does take away from the natural feel unlike the Nanowebs. The Polywebs do give you less string noise in recording sessions which I like. All personal preference here, but that's my 2 cents.

Great Quality But Sound Could Be Better

By Sophia

from Clarksville, TN

Comments about Elixir Medium Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I loved the quality of these strings. The coating is nice and keeps the stings clean. However, I must say the sound you get with these strings is not quite as clear as the sound you get from non coated strings. Also, the medium size made finger picking difficult.

Comments about Elixir Medium Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

Never ending tone quest brought me back to Elixir. Got a Taylor gs mini Koa and tried out several different brands. The guitar came with Elixir nanoweb. These Polywebs gave a smoother sound to my ear. Elixir brand is always top quality.

    Comments about Elixir Medium Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    Exactly what I wanted out of a set of strings. First time using mediums and man do they sound thick. Love it. The highs aren't all the way there but that's to be expected from using medium gauge strings the lows and mids however are absolutely fantastic. Highly recommend them to any player.
