Last 3 to 5 times longer than uncoated strings.

Strum confidently 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?

Engineered to endure, these acoustic strings constructed with phosphor bronze wrap wire boast a dynamic balance of rich, full-bodied tone and sparkling high-end clarity. 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 strings with their original POLYWEB Coating. The 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with POLYWEB Coating, for example, might be a good fit if you want a more robust and rounded tone. On the other end of the tone spectrum, Elixir's 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating deliver a brighter, crisper tone alongside the same traditional feel as these phosphor bronze strings.

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. Jam on and on (and on) with the same premium electric bass guitar strings that experienced players worldwide trust to keep their incredible tone longer than any other string available. 

Specially developed based on in-depth feedback from more than a thousand bass players just like you, Elixir Strings' tailor-made selection of bass strings proudly includes nickel-plated and stainless steel construction options, four-, five- and six-string sets, long and extra-long scales, and virtually every gauge range you could possibly need. All with their innovative string coating technology. And 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?

Premium by design, these electric bass guitar strings constructed with nickel-plated steel wrap wire boast a rich, rounded tone with incredible clarity and a heavy mid-range presence. Meanwhile, the ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating, redesigned specifically for bass guitars, allows a smooth, natural feel that also enhances grip and reduces finger squeak.

For a brighter bass tone, try our Stainless Steel Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating.  

Of course, the kind of string you play is all a matter of personal preference. Not sure what tone is right for you? Try them out for yourself, and find your new favorite string from Elixir Strings.

        Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Light Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        Elixir makes the best strings, hands down. I don't play as much as I used to and when I pick up one of my guitars after sitting for months the sound quality is remarkable. I have the same set of strings I put on my Ovation over two years ago and the quality is still very good. I've not been able to do that with any other strings.

        Worth a couple extra bucks

        By 

        from Tillamook, OR

        Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Light Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I've been playing for more than 40 years, and using Elixer nanos ever since they came out (and the polys before that), and as advertised, the phosphor bronze version does give me a much warmer and more balanced tone on my Larrivee L-series. As to longevity, I've never had any trouble in that regard with Elixers, although I'm noticing fraying of the coating in the area over the sound hole after only a few days, where I usually note this only after a couple weeks or so...GORE, TAKE NOTE! I hope this fraying is an anomoly (only reason I didn't give 5 stars), because I really like the way these sound and play.

        Great strings

        Long lasting, very nice, bright sounding strings, highly recommended. These last much longer and sound much better than any Martin or Addario strings I have used, coated or not coated you can not beat Elixir

        Amazing longevity

        By 

        from Fargo, ND

        Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Light Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I originally put these on my Taylor 414 as part of a case study for Elixir. I had the strings on my guitar from Jan - Mar for 7 live shows of 4 hours each plus practice time in between. I never wiped them down after a show and never cleaned them. The bass player in our group could not believe that they were the same strings I had on for 3 months. The brilliance and bright and balanced tone never faded. Plus the coating helps them stay in tune because they don't 'stick' in the ivory nut on my Taylor. There was a slight peeling of the Nanoweb coating after 3 months which is similar with other Elixer Nanoweb coated strings I've tried. I used to use D'Addario EXP Acoustic strings because they are less expensive but the extra tone and longevity you get out of these Elixir strings is well worth the extra money. A great product!

        Greatest Strings!

        By 

        from Blacksburg, VA

        Comments about Elixir Nanoweb Light Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I have been playing the acoustic guitar for 40 years and these are by far the best strings I've used. I play a Gibson Hummingbird and a Gibson J-50, and these have a very bright, expressive sound that lasts for months. After a brief "break- in" period of about a week, the sound is great and lasts much, much longer than non coated strings. And the Phosphor Bronze strings have an even better sound than the original Light Bronze. Definately worth the extra money!
