Combat string grunge!

Prolong your tone 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?

Crafted to last, these nickel-plated steel electric guitar strings boast a warm, robust tone while the POLYWEB Coating brings a slick, fast feel to the playing experience.

For a more traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel and a brighter, punchier tone, try Elixir's electric guitar strings with ultra-thin NANOWEB 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.

Features
  • Gauges 10-13-17-26-36-46
  • Electric guitar strings constructed with nickel-plated steel wrap wire
  • Played for a warm, robust tone
  • Original POLYWEB Coating provides a soft, slick feel that keeps the strings from getting in the way of playing
  • Patented coating technology protects against common corrosion, extending tone life longer than any other brand’s coated or uncoated strings (Elixir Strings player survey)
  • Anti-Rust Plating on plain steel strings ensures longer tone life for the entire set

I was thrown off at first by the price tag on the strings, but after playing on them for about a year, I've realized that they last about three times longer than any other strings I've played (d'addario and Ernie ball, mainly). They feel good as new even after extensive playing, and keep a very strong tone, unlike other strings, which seem to die after a few weeks. They pay for themselves after a while, and the tone is unmatched. Highly recommended.

The images and description of this item are misleading.

I quote the item description, "In addition to an ultrathin grunge-resistant tubular coating on the wound strings, Polywebs now have a revolutionary Anti-Rust plating on the plain strings to extend their life too."

Also, if you look at the images for the product, you will see they read "with Anti-Rust plain steels". Music123 will not send you the correct product. I received three (3) packs of Polywebs, just as I ordered, however, none of the three contained anti-rust steels. None of the boxes said anti-rust in the front. Each pack of strings lasted about two days until they tarnished, and here I am, a week later, and I just went through 3 packs of Elixirs.

Be sure to call Music123 ahead of time to confirm that you are going to receive what you want. Watch out for the misleading information on this website.

Great strings,nice tone,durable,last long time,no rust and great feel. Price is a little high as other brands make strings that are pretty much equal but not better for less money.Overall like them and will continue to buy them.

      ELIXIR STRINGS

      By 

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Elixir Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

      Let me put it this way.. When i am saying Grace during Thanksgiving and i am saying what i am thankful for...ELIXIR POLYEWEB strings are on that list. i have tried DR strings, which did not last to long. the elixir strings have lasted a very long time as advertised and still somehow maintain their tone. I just purchased 20 packs of these strings..For 8 dollars a pack...thats a steal!

      BEST STRINGS OUT THERE!

      By 

      from Seattle area

      Comments about Elixir Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

      Yes they are about twice the price but last about 4 or 5 times longer than regular strings. I use to use D'addario which are great regular strings. Everyone has there preference, I have 2 strats, and 2 les Pauls, I love them on the strat! I recently tried them on one of my Les Pauls after using DR brand strings. For LP's I highly recommend DRs. If you want the coated polymer get the DR coated strings.

      Great - tremendous - BUY THEM NOW

      By 

      from Durham, England

      Comments about Elixir Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

      I, like so many others, was put off at first by the fact that these strings are a little expensive - but after using the strings I can say - they are by far the best I've used. In the past I've used all sorts, from d'addario & ernie ball to gibson and fender - none of them come even close to the elixir's - only one bad thing... After being so used to the other strings - first time I played live with the elixirs, I was playing a lead and slid about 4 frets too far in the middle of the lead break... These strings absolutely blow every other string away - I'd simply say - BUY THEM, BUY THEM NOW

      By 

      from San Antonio TX

      Comments about Elixir Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

      I tried both the Nano & Poly Web versions becaus of the great tone & slickness of the strings but they break way too easy. Some people have said you don't have to play harder just turn up your amp. You can do that but your not doing it right if you're not giving it your all.

      I've tried many many strings, like DR's, blue steel, De'Addario, Fender, Ernie Ball and most of the other big names. I found that Elixers were the best. Simple as that.Very smooth feel, LONG life. A+. Try them!

      As soon as I tried elixir strings on my GibsonI was amazed at the sound, so I put them on myWashburn acoustic, my Ibanez acoustic also.I will never use any other string.There is simply not a better sounding string out there. They last 2 to 3 times longer!!! Amen

      Comments about Elixir Light Polyweb Electric Guitar Strings:

      I recently strung my BCRich with the Nanoweb superlights and they sound amazing! The coating makes it especially comfortable to play metal riffs because it isn't as harsh on the old fingers!
