Elixir Strings, provide playability and long lasting tone that top artists worldwide depend upon! These Elixir Strings capture the sweet spot of that unique phosphor bronze tone.
Every time you play your guitar, tiny bits of you are left to invade the windings to contaminate your strings and kill your tone. Elixir Strings are the only strings that keep dirt out of the windings by coating the entire string. Our ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating provides a bright, lively tone that players tell us lasts longer than any other string, uncoated or coated. This means you buy fewer sets of strings, change them less often and trust your guitar is ready to go whenever you are.
These classic Elixir guitar strings provide warm tone and smooth response of "played-in" strings right out of the box!
"I don't know how Elixir managed to improve upon the best, but they did! I find the new Elixir Plated Plain Steel strings require even less maintenance and last considerably longer, while maintaining the same excellence in tone, clarity and intonation I have come to expect from Elixir Strings," said world-renowned guitar player Johnny Hiland.
Elixir's original POLYWEB® Coating on this 80/20 Bronze string offers a balanced tone with a smooth responsive feel which reduces finger squeak, while lasting 3-5 times longer.
The #1 acoustic guitar string in the US, Elixir Strings doesn't just coat the wrap wire, but coats the entire string preventing corrosion and contamination from accumulating on the surface and in the space between the windings.
Anti-Rust plating on all Elixir's plain steel strings resist tone-deadening corrosion, giving you a clean feel every time you play your guitar.
