Product description

Size:Light (.012-.053)  |  Style:Single Set  |  Pattern Name:Guitar Strings

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 our 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 our 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Strings, which also feature a more robust and rounded tone. For more of a balance between bold and bright, our 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. Elixir Strings: Great tone. Long life.

5.0 out of 5 stars They last longer than you think.
By Acceco on November 15, 2018
When is a guitar string dead and time to replace it? Duh, that's easy. When it breaks.... Not quite true here but with these strings you might be more apt to have the sting break before they need to be replaced. I know, I know, I will get a lot of flack for that because some purists think that strings need to be super bright sounding and once that is gone then replace. I disagree. These string do start out bright in sound and that will fade. Then they got into to mellow tone with more pronounced bass and smoother treble but then something magical happens after that. They start to sing! The sustain builds and you get a seductive smooth sound after that. When that last tone shift hits, its music to everyone's ears.

When should you really change them out? For me its when the strings don't stay in tune after a song or two. But I play about an hour a day each day and sometimes more on the weekends, and yeah some days off as well and I haven't noticed a need to replace them after 2-3 months now. The nanoweb technology is amazing, period. Buy Elixor and never look back.

I play an acoustic Taylor 216 in case you are wondering.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not genuine Elixir
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 7, 2020
This is not 'Bronze' elixir string and the quality is awful. It doesn't even sound like new strings. The old strings that I just removed had a lot more tone and ring to them after 4 months of playing. I have been using genuine Bronze nanoweb Elixir for ages. As seen in the picture (with the old one removed) even the colour of the new set is not bronze - it's a kind of light yellowish colour. I'm very disappointed. I have already put them on my guitar and cannot ask for a refund, but it's not about money, it's about the fact that I can never know if I may receive genuine strings when I order in future. This is very disappointing.
