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.

worth a try


from NYC

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.009-.046):

I have always checked the reviews on music123 on gear I was interested in, but this is the first time I felt the need to write one. As with probably a lot of people the whole coated strings resisting rust and longer life claim caught my attention so finally I made the switch. I used to use Ernie Ball pure nickel slinkys, and the plain strings would rust pretty quickly, but here I am a month and some weeks later with the elixirs and they look, sound, and feel as good as new. They sounded a little brighter in the beginning, but a tweek on the amp changed that, and they feel a little slicker due to the coating. the feel caught me off guard at first, but now I like it. I have never had a string break, but I also make sure I have at least 2 coils around the tuning peg. actually the only draw back I could find is that they fall out of tune a little sooner then the slinkys, but then again I play a Les Paul with the light gauge tuned down half a step, so that can kind of be expected. All in all the strings have impressed me so much that I will be switching my bass, and acoustic strings also. The price at first may put off some people, as it did me, but now I consider it a bargain. Give them a try, and I think u will be impressed too.

Best strings ever!


from Gols - Austria

Comments about Elixir Electric Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.009-.046):

I used to play Ernie Ball Super Slinky - the choice of the best. Great strings but they get very fast rusty and so I looked for something new. Elixir Strings were the answered. With the new Anti Rust Coating they don't rust anymore. With my aggressive Tremolo use the last for about two months.I love them and I won't even consider trying something else!!
