Clear, bright tone and easy playing with enough tension to get the most out of your flattop.

Gauges 12-16-24-32-42-53.

Elixir Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings are the first major innovation in strings in over forty years, and deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what you put them on or how often you play.

Elixir Strings are covered with an ultrathin, space-age polymer tube that contacts the string on the tops of the windings only. This leaves the all-important winding-to-winding-to-core space free from the fear of the enemies of tone!

Most players report that Elixir Strings keep sounding great 3 to 5 times longer than ordinary strings.


At this price, you can afford a handful. Put some in the cart. It's not like you won't use 'em.

    Comments about Elixir Polyweb Acoustic Light Strings:

    Great strings are worth paying a bit more. I have been a life-long D'Addario user, and still use those on other guitars, but if you want that Taylor, or that Takamine Santa Fe to sound its best, these are the strings for you.

    Comments about Elixir Polyweb Acoustic Light Strings:

    I have had about ~5 sets of these on my Martin D15 and they seem to hit the sweet spot for playability, durability and tone. The tone is a full sounding warm -> balanced/clear mid range . So these are not what I would describe as particularly bright or trebly. Thats fine by me since celtic/gypsy sounds better mellow, I even prefer bluegrass with the treble rolled off a bit (no Taylors for me!). Great solid choice, usually last me ~ 6 months playing 4-5 hours a week. Last set went a bit quicker (~4 months). Sound transfers well to recordings. I will be using them til they change the formula.
