The best
Thomas5142, 28.09.2017
I've been playing a Simon and Patrick mini auditorium for 3 years now; during this period I have tried out 4 different string sets: Dean Markley Alchemy Gold Bronze 12-54,, Martin phosphor bronze custom light 12-54, D'Addario EXP16 Phosphor Bronze Light 12-53 and Elixir Nanoweb in both 11-52 and 12-54 variations. My experience so far is pointing on the Elixir, which is providing the best sound compared to all other choices above. The only concern lies with the price, as it is the most expensive of all;
I will give a try to the Dunlop DAP1152 Phosphor in the future, but I'm somehow feeling that I have already met the best choice for the particular guitar (and my particular ears of course!).

however. These last for ages

can't go wront with elixir!
Ivekpivek, 02.05.2019
I haven been using elixirs on all of my instruments (electric guitar, bass and now acoustic), there simply isn't anything better than elixirs (and i have tried a lot of different strings).The sound and quality (coating) is amazing and they last for a very long time.

Like playing on cotton
JAAA, 10.11.2018
A few years back I started experimenting with thinner strings on my electric and loved it. I was still under the impression then that you should never go thinner than .12s on acoustic. Well, now I have and I will probably never go back. These on my Taylor is an absolute joy to play.

I love these strings!
18.02.2017
I use these strings on a very nice limited edition Taylor 410 with walnut back and sides. In fact, I would use these strings on any acoustic guitar. I just love them. Whatever about them being long lasting, they are quite simply my favourite sounding acoustic guitar strings.

As a lover and admirer of Thomastik strings for instance, I decided to take a break from the Elixir's and try Thomastik's acoustic guitar strings. What a mistake! A couple of days and I was back to my Elixir Custom Lights. They sound fabulous. They feel fabulous. They last for a long time. Sometimes the third breaks up on me but that's usually after they've been on for quite a while.

I love the balance of tension with these custom lights. They feel just right under my fingers, not to heavy, not too light, and I can play. They record beautifully too.

As somebody who used to have to change strings every couple of days when touring, I find these Nanowebs a God-send. Also, for anyone who is not in the know, nano webs are so much better than the original polyweb variety, which tend to peel away with use very early on, so if undecided, go for these nanoweb strings, you won't be disappointed. The difference is that on the nanoweb strings, the coating is applied before the strings are wound, so that they actually feel like a regular string, whereas with the polyweb variety, the coating is applied to the already wound string.

I can't recommend these strings highly enough, they keep their tone and have the same life as newish strings many months later. They will save people a small fortune!

best coated strings for smooth and fast slide playing
azad.music, 14.02.2019
i am using a taylor acoustic guitar with Elixir coated Nanoweb light strings and i must say these strings are best compare to other strings in the same or mush more then this price. i live in saudi arabia and because of a-lot of humidity my strings just lasts around a month but these coated Elixir strings are really giving me 6 to 8 months easily with proper sound . also it enhance my acoustic guitar playability because its really smooth to slide and bending notes without buzz and weird noises .

The perfect strings
182182, 19.06.2019
Use:
I use it on my Taylor 214dlx. It's so good and gives a fantastic sound. Really rich and deep sound but with sparkling highs and they last really long. They are on the pricier side but you pay for quality.

They make my guitar happy!
Andrei M., 13.01.2019
There strings are a work horse. They last absolutely forever and still retain that new string sound we all crave for so much. I bought these so I wouldn't feel the need to change my strings every 2 weeks.. and boy did they deliver! Great tone, great feel and great life. Go buy them!

Worth every cent
30.05.2016
Having been skeptical for a few years, I was given a gift of a set of these strings, and I was instantly converted. I have found cheaper strings very uneven in output, the G and D tend to be far quieter than the outer strings. Not so with Elixirs. Every string rings out, and stays bright to the end. On average, I find they last more than twice as long as cheaper brands, and never become dull-sounding.
I have tried a number of other coated brands, all very good, but not nearly as long-lasting as Elixirs.
Buy one set. It won't be your last.

Sound that lasts
dondi, 03.07.2018
I play acoustic guitar in a Professional trio and I use this strings for three years now. At First I resisted to put this on my guitar because I didnt like the slepery touch on it. But after 4-5 days I use to it and now when I play guitar with other strings it feels strange. The sound of the strings is bright, tight and it lasts for a month - with everydays three hours perfomance. Buy it!

Elixir Nanoweb Custom Light Acoustic
Robert814, 11.10.2015
I don't have sweaty hands, even after 90 minutes playing. I wash my hands before each session. I doubt that I really need these. I only got them out of sheer curiosity. The concept is great, but I keep my hands and guitars and strings completely clean and grease free at all times. I don't even eat or drink while playing. Great idea, but rather OTT for me.

Get the 3 set pack instead with substantial cost savings. De facto standard strings known for its high quality and lasting value. Go for it.

finally i found them!
Thomas Starfox, 14.06.2017
Those are my new favorite Acoustic guitar strings, i use them in a Fender Sonoran and an Ibanez and i really love them! The don't have too my low frequences and nice smooth high frequence tones. With my Ibanez I hat the problem that with thicker strings, the neck bended quite easy, this is the perfect strength for all of you who want a smooth sound for their 6 strings which can be bent easy and don't need too much finger pressure.

Elixir 11-52
John437, 28.06.2013
Good crisp sound from these strings, coating does protect against rust, however will still become worn from pick strumming. Gauges 11-52, good for bending/lead playing

Used them almost exclusively
25.05.2016
Tommy Emmanuel doesn't like them he told me, but I do. They last long enough for me to actually play them not waste time changing them.

Slightly too bright for some and may be the case true but the coating at least lasts a fairly long time.

RonanM, 24.04.2016
they started to look worse for wear quite soon after they were put to use. Here's the unusual thing though, they still sounded fantastic... So yeah, the sound better than they look.
