Put These Long-lasting Strings on Your Acoustic!

Elixir Acoustic Nanoweb strings don't just sound great; their micro-thin coating keeps them sounding great for a lot longer than average strings. If you want to keep your guitar tone consistently great day in and day out, put on a set of Elixir Acoustic Nanoweb strings. Their coating actually cuts down on unnecessary finger friction. You'll be amazed at how long they last! Fewer string changes means having to buy strings less often.

Elixir's 80/20 Bronze strings are made of 80% soft copper and 20% durable zinc, presenting a smoother, mellower tone than Phosphor Bronze acoustic strings. They tend to assume a warmer glowing tone, but the ultra-lightweight Nanoweb™ coating lets them move freely, giving their tone some of the gloss associated with more responsive Phosphor Bronze strings.

Great strings

I have tried many brands and types of strings over the years and have found these to be the best I have used. They last longer than many other strings I have tried. The tone stays consistent for a long time. They are worth every penny!

Still Looking but can't find anything better

I put these Elixir strings on my Martin ever other stringing. I like to try new strings in between. There are other strings out there that are brighter out of the box but for longevity and still getting a nice rich bass and mid Martin is known for I go with the Elixir Nanoweb even over the Martin Lifespan. I prefer the Martin light bronze over the lifespan actually. Pay twice the price and get three times the playability.

They Last Longer!

These strings are awesome. Before, I was using GHS Light Phosphor Bronze. My friend used GHS Light 80/20 Bronze, and they sounded way brighter than my guitar did. So, I read some reviews on Elixir Strings, and decided to try them myself. I went to the store, picked up a pack of these, and slapped them onto my guitar a couple of days later. They sound fantastic! Now let me tell you, I own an old Yamaha. Just a couple of years old. It's very crappy, has the worst pickup ever, and just doesn't sound good at all, especially plugged-in. But from reverting from GHS to these Elixirs, I have fallen in love with a new set of strings. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is because it tends to kind of tear after a while. Not while the strings are still good, but when the strings start to die. I have had them on for almost four months now, and by the third month, I started seeing little hair-like things sticking out from the strings, but I don't think that will effect the sound of the guitar in any way. These strings are especially spectacular for recording. If you're looking for that big brightness, fullness, and enthusiasm, give these strings a try.
