    Best Acoustic Strings Ever

    I am just a fan of fresh, lively strings. These stay alive for 3-6 months, easy. I do not like the phosphor bronze though, too dark. The regular bronze are terrific and I highly recommend. And, knock on wood, they don't break on me either. The gauges starting at 11 are also really usable. I like the flexibility of playing solos and being able to get a slight bend, but they are still solid enough to not feel slinky for chord and finger style Travis stuff. I gave'em a 5 star rating!!!!!

    Tired of changing strings?

    I started using Elixer nanoweb custom lights on my acoustic guitar 7 or 8 years ago. I am in a country band that plays 2-3 show a week. Sometimes I will also do an occasional acoustic show on a weeknight as well. These strings are a good bang for the buck.
    That being said, I can usually play on a set of strings before they start losing tone for 4 to 6 weeks before changing strings. The key to keeping these or any strings sounding "alive" is to clean each string with a dry rag before putting up your guitar after every ( and I mean every) you play. These stings will start to look worn long before the tone starts to go away and you know they are done when you start having to tune after every couple of songs.
    Overall, I highly recommend these strings both the acoustic and electric version. Been using them for years and have tried some others over time, but always come back to these.

    These are the real deal

    I am the worship leader at my church, and I have been playing on the same set of Elixirs on my Takamine EF-341c for the last 10 months. Even though the strings are visibly worn, they still sound AMAZING both through a mic and DI into the sound system. I have played Martin SP's, Dean Markley, Kaman Adamas, and many others in the past 20 years, but these are the ONLY ones I have ever had that would stand up to the punishment I deal them.

    I HIGHLY recommend these for ANYONE looking for great sound as well as great longevity from their strings.

    How long can they last???

    I just replaced a set that had been on my acoustic for 2 or 3 years... They still sounded decent. I hope they are as good on an electric guitar!

    Great Strings

    Strings perform as advertised and feel a bit smoother with reduced noise and noticeably less squeak. Tone and volume are great, no complaints there- wouldn't be able to tell the difference based on what/how I play.

    This was my first try at using coated acoustic strings (normally play Martin 80/20s) and after reading some postings on other sites I worried that they might be hard to get a grip on and bend, but that's not the case at all.

    Great if you've got 'acid hands' like mine and run through strings - if not then you might not get the extra mileage out of them.
