Hello at all,
I'm a big fan of elixir strings as they stays way longer than other manufacturers strings and also have great tone. The sound of the strings is very bright and metallic, which I personally prefer. The actual coating. It is a very thin coating that feels like a mixture of rubber and plastic (not in a bad way though). The material is very fast and not sticky at all. You easily get used to the coated feeling of the strings, so that's no problem. While keeping the bright sound you can feel the coating wearing out after 3-4 weeks. Especially right above the frets the coating was totally worn out, which lead to more friction and resistance between the frets and the strings. They are worth the money because they outlast standard strings whilst keeping a crisp tone. The sound quality and tuning throughout the length of string is spot-on. Try them once and you'll be hooked! If you are looking for quality, tenacity and preciseness in your guitar string aim for the best and the best are Elixir strings. More durable and worth, that?s what you really want: To reach the right notes in your guitar.
