Combat finger grunge!
Amp up your guitar’s tone life 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?
Engineered to endure, these nickel-plated steel electric guitar strings boast a ton of bright, vibrant presence and dynamic punch. Compared to our original POLYWEB Coating, the ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating allows a more traditionally textured, "uncoated" feel.
For a slicker, gentler feel, try a set of electric guitar strings with Elixir's original POLYWEB Coating, which also feature a warmer tone.
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 NANOWEB Coating, Heavy (.012-.052):
These are the best strings I've ever played and I've played a lot of different kinds. GHS, Blue Steel, Ernie Ball of all different kinds, DR, SIT, these strings beat them all. The sound is amazing and the heavy gauge is perfect for downtuning (I tune to B). If you're new to Nanoweb strings, they feel kind of "greasy" because of the coating, but you get used to it fast. They retain their tone for a very long time, twice as long as my Ernie Balls did, and cleaning them with string cleaner seems to give much better results. Some people have reported early string breakage with lighter gauges but I have never had any problems with lighter gauges so long as you don't treat them like they're invincible. And with the heavier gauges, I have yet to experience any string breakage at all. I've even tuned these 12 gauge ones to standard E tuning and they took whatever beating I could dish out. All in all probably the best strings I've ever played and I don't foresee switching any time soon.
