Not the best sounding strings but last a VERY long time
TrEr, 07.06.2021
I've tried lots of different coated strings and the Elixir Nanowebs are in a league of their own when it comes to durability. These strings last an impressively long time! I have them permanently mounted on guitars I use regularly (practise, rehearsals, even gigs).

I do not use these strings for recording if I can avoid it though. The sound isn't quite as good (for MY taste) as many other strings out there. Still, they're not poor sounding, just not quite up there with my favorites.

Great strings for rehearsals/practise/touring. Not my first choice for recording.

Long-lasting, gives you the bright tone you're looking for
Diatonico, 07.02.2021
What else is there to say? These are great strings — they last long and give you a crisp tone with enough bottom end to balance it out (assuming you have a decent intstrument, of course). Totally worth the extra money.

Probably the best strings in the world, but some guitars does not like this strings. Fits best for premium guitars. Playability is outstanding 'cos of the flexibility of these strings, but it does not impact well to intonation. The harder strings gave a little bit better intonation, esp. for dreadnought size guitars.

Perfect
Melanie E., 06.04.2014
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.

The only ones I use for my Taylor
ABScott, 19.01.2019
These strings have been the warmest sounding and long lasting ones I've been able to find, haven't found any other brand that can make my Taylor 214ce and Taylor 210ce sound as good, espicially in gig situations on cruise ships where you are constantly faced with different atmospheric conditions on a daily basis with drastic changes in temperature and humidity.

Elixir Nanoweb Light Phosphor Bronze
Greg_T, 04.05.2020
String is a personal thing but these are praised by a lot of people listening to my guitar. Very nice balance between being not too bright and not too dark. These strings are really lasting much longer than standard strings.

Great sounding acoustic strings. They have a great feel and stay really nice and fresh over a longer period of time. Nothing more to say: amazing strings, worth every penny.

And as it is expected, it lasts a long time.

G String lasted a week
LorcanRyan, 02.05.2021
Nice sounding strings - recommended to me by a professional musician however the G-string has died after only a week and 1 2-hour session. I was expecting a much longer life from them.

Quality Strings!
14.03.2016
I play a lot of live shows and have used Elixir Nanoweb strings for around 2 and a half years. These strings are marginally more expensive than the Martin ones I used previously but they last about 3 times as long.
The only negative I can give really is that the brightness you usually get with a brand new set of strings isn't quite the same with these, almost like the Nanoweb coating is deadening that tone slightly. Don't get me wrong, these strings sound GREAT! Obviously the brightness I'm referring to only lasts a day at the most on a non-coated set of strings before they start to deteriorate. I can get 4 or 5 gigs out of a set of these if I need to whereas I used to change after 2 gigs.
Totally recommended by me!

Best acoustic strings so far
granny, 26.01.2021
Very nice tone (pretty bright right out of the box) long life - you could strech the use up to a year if you don't play them too often but I recommand a replacement every 3-6 months and storing them detuned half a step.

The Best Strings I Have Ever Use
aealtinbas, 27.01.2021
I especially recommend phorphor bronze. Its voice is bright, loud and durable. However, if you are not used to it, 012 gauge may force you a little while playing solo.

I used these strings with Faith FVL and Gibson G45. I observed a noticeable difference with the other strings.

Not the worst, but far from good
23.11.2016
I bought this set with the idea to replace the strings of my new acoustic and still be able to enjoy the bright sound of the factory phosphor bronze strings. However I was truly disappointed by the quality of the product.

The first problem appeared when I was changing the strings. As I was finishing tuning the 1st string, it just snapped, and after close examination I established that the winding on the ball end of the string was gone, meaning that it has faulted at it's joints. This has never happened to me before even with the cheapest string sets, and I have been setting up guitars for the past decade.

Another drawback of this set is that even though their top layer is made out of phosphor bronze, they still sounded far mellower than they are supposed to, especially for being a light gauge. However, they did retain a good tone for quite a long time. After I took them off I noticed that the nanoweb coating is actually a nylon-resembling sheet that is "laminated" onto the string... to me that is the reason why they sounded so mellow.

Overall, I wouldn't buy them again. I have switched to D' EXP 26 and I am far happier with them.

BEST ONES
Steve Z, 11.05.2020
These are maybe the best strings I 've ever used on my electo-acoustic guitar and give a warm and full sound to my ears even when playing acoustically...Of course their thickness counts a lot as far as the sound is concerned since the 11s but mostly the 10s (which i will never use again..) are not playable for fast playing and hard strumming and and they wear out faster than the 12s..Your guitar also needs cording less often than thiner sizes and other brands..elixir are the best!

paperclip , 25.12.2020
I have used these for about half a year now, and i keep buying them every time. They really are on the pricier end but they last me at least four months. The sound is amazing, super warm. Really advice these for any acoustic guitar.

Elixir Nanoweb Light Phosphor Bronze
Owen G., 24.03.2014
These stings (Like all Elixir strings) are amazing! These stings are the best I have ever used. They give the guitar a beautiful and bright tone. These strings also feel quite good against the hand while playing. These strings are the longest lasting stings I have used! I have had them on for at least a month now, playing a few times a day and they still sound as well as they do when i put them on.

My favourite guitar strings
UserBXL, 19.09.2019
Maybe I got all convinced because of the "coated strings, longer life" marketing they have, but since I first tried them in 2008 I only use Elixir strings for my acoustic and electric guitars. Now, I always vary string sizes, so I cannot say if the 12/53 is better than any other (and I guess that's more a question of personal taste). What I can say is that these guitar strings are great for the fingers, very comfortable, they sound great, they last a long time and don't break nearly as often as other brands.

Lovely sound
jojob, 17.08.2019
I bought these to replace a different set I was using on a Fender CD-60 acoustic. The old strings were starting to sound dull. These new strings gave the Fender a fuller, brighter sound, especially for the lower notes. Recommended!

Best coated strings
Matteo B., 31.07.2018
I tried these strings because my hands sweat a lot during the performances. I found a great sound, a perfect feeling and they last more than 5 times the other strings. I tried strngs that play a little better than these, but after a couple of gigs I had to change them, and even on the second one, the sound had already changed.
Elixir are very good because they maintain the same sound until they are done... but it takes a long time. Try to believe!!

Great set for my Dreadnought
01.07.2016
I don't play acoustic guitar that much anymore and by having Elixir's on it now it means I can keep them on longer because of their extended life.

They sound great with my Dreadnought guitar, warm sound and good sustain.

I found the coating of the Elixir's protects the strings from my sweat, which compared to other manufacturers were getting rusty pretty fast. This is why I've been using Elixir strings for my electric as well.

Fully recommend.

OK but nothing special
Anthony8207, 08.08.2015
I have a Yamaha CPX900 which has quite a full sound with a strong bass response. I have tried Martin SP, which did not suit the guitar at all - too rich a sound, and Yamaha's AEP12, which worked very well - bright, crisp and clear, but allowing the full sound of the guitar to be heard. The Elixirs are somewhere between the two. They are a better match than the Martins and they are a little fuller sounding than the Yamahas, but not so crisp and clear. The Elixirs have a nice slick feel with reduced string noise and they should last much longer (but they are much more expensive).

Lasting strings
backwardsguitarist, 13.04.2020
I use this product with my Taylor BT2. The strings feel good, they sound good and they last a long time with heavy playing - at least one month with heavy playing and low maintenance! Worth the money. Speedy delivery and items packaged properly as usual.
