Combat finger grunge!

Prolong your tone with the same 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?

Premium by design, these acoustic strings constructed with 80/20 (80% copper, 20% zinc) bronze wrap wire boast a crisp, bright tone with an expressive, vibrant presence. Compared to Elixir's original POLYWEB Coating, the ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating allows a more traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel. 

For a slicker, gentler feel, try the original POLYWEB Coating on their 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Strings, which also feature a more robust and rounded tone. For more of a balance between bold and bright, Elixir's Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating deliver full-bodied tone and sparkling high-end clarity alongside the same traditional feel as these 80/20 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. For a more in-depth look at what makes our strings so special, scroll to the branded info further down the page.

Can't trust them

By 

from MN

Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light (.012-.053):

I used to swear by these strings for my acoustic based on the sound. Oxidized strings sound 'muddy' whereas the nanoweb preserves that fresh bright sound I'm looking for. However, every set of Elixirs I've owned has eventually broken a string at the bridge. I used to think I simply played them so much longer than other strings that breaking was inevitable. Unfortunately, I noticed sometimes they would break after 2 or 3 months of light use at inopportune times, like during a live performance. The final straw was when I put completely new Elixir strings on my guitar Friday night for a performance on Saturday night. On the first song a string snaps at the bridge!!! Embarrassing! Not even strung for 24 hrs! Previously, I had never noticed this problem on my guitar until I started using Elixirs. I haven't broke a string since with either Dean Markely or Martin Marquis. So I know for a fact it is not my guitar's bridge, which doesn't even have a pointy profile... it is rounded. As nice sounding as Elixirs are, I simply cannot trust them for anything that matters, like live performances.

Comments about Elixir 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Light (.012-.053):

wow. these are the best strings i have ever used. I am not considering switching to anything else. the elixirs have a bright vibrant sound and they nanoweb coated. These strings have an amazing sound and feel great on your fingers. Totally worth the price.
