Nothing Sounds Better Than A New Set Of Strings!

Elixir Strings with the Polyweb coating have the warm tone and smooth action of non-coated strings, yet they feel like softer to the touch. The ultra-thin Polyweb coating keeps these strings sounding fresh and new for a lot longer than conventional strings. The Polyweb coating cuts down on finger squeak while reducing the bite of the strings on your fingers. They have a mellow and warm tone, and maintain their original sound and feel longer than most strings.

Elixir's 80/20 Bronze strings present a smoother, mellower tone than Phosphor Bronze acoustic strings. They tend to assume a warmer glowing tone, and the Polyweb™ coating further subdues their high end, resulting in a rich, full-bodied tone.

Bye-bye finger squeak!

I like both the Nano- and Poly-coated Elixir strings, but the thing I particularly like about the Polyweb strings is the reduced finger noise when you slide your fingers up and down the strings. Apparently the thicker coating fills in some of the space between windings on the wound strings, and this greatly reduces annoying finger squeak. Some people have the opinion that this coating reduces the brightness of the strings. Although I have not done a comparison of both types of new strings on identical instruments, to me, these strings sound fantastic. I've tried both types, and I think the Polyweb strings sound wonderful, and the reduced finger noise is the reason I prefer them. I use only Elixir strings because they sound great and keep sounding great many times longer than other strings I've used. I play acoustic guitar about 5 hours a week, and I use a set of strings for about 3 months before changing them. After 3 months, they still sound good, but a new set sounds better. Concerned about the price? I get over 60 hours of playing from a set, so the cost per hour is trivial. I know some people use them much longer than I do. I used one set for a year, and I still thought the guitar (a great guitar, by the way) sounded good. Changing them every 3 months feels like a luxury I can happily afford. People tend to hear what they expect to hear. I suggest trying these strings with an open mind. I think you'll like the way they sound very much.

Can't make them wear out!

I have had a set of these on my J-35 for 6 months now. I can't wear them out. I play on average about 30-45 minutes a day. The polyweb coating isn't peeling like the other coatings do, the tone has not changed at all. I used to go through a set of strings every 2-3 weeks until I found these. No deadened tone, no peeling at all, and no breaks. Have a friend that has the electric guitar version and he is going on over 10 (yes, TEN) years on these strings without a single change or broken string. Amazing product.

Very Good Product

Since my first pack of Elixir not long after they were invented I've used no other. For years I had to change out other brands after just four hours of use (one gig) due to I guess me having high acidity that simply crusted over the strings with corrosion. Not Elixir. They also can be cleaned up a bit after months of use and return the ring. I've tried other brands of coated strings but they just don't seem to have the sound and lasting power of Elixirs.

Beautiful product, came as promised and shipping was prompt! I only order elixir strings for my guitar. Customer service was wonderful, they even called to confirm the order. Thanks Sweetwater, I will be ordering from you all again soon!

pretty good

visible coating, but it does temper the bright sound, which i like. I'm happy with this purchase.
