Some folks won't, but then some folks'll like Cletus, the slack-tuning yokel (with Elixir strings)

The Eric Johnson of Helsinki, 16.08.2017
Elixir gets those who care about their strings talking. If you get sweaty hands while you're playing, then just stop reading now and buy some. If not, like me...

Strings are like green tea: a little buys a lot. But coated strings DO affect your tone. Somehow they sound more hi-fi. Hence on my Chapman and Ibanez guitars (and my Ibanez bass) coated doesn't really matter, because this style of guitar is hi-tech anyway. I think my Chapman was shipped from Thomann with Elixirs and as is the case with Rob's guitars, they sound great. And even though it was designed in the mid- late-eighties, to my ears the Jem still sounds as though it comes from the future. So in these cases it doesn't matter much.

I've used Ernie Ball strings pretty much for thirty years now, and while they coat some of theirs, the original Slinkys seem that bit more "soulful." Also Gibson's Nickel strings are pretty stunning. And you can't beat stainless steel on a proper Tele. And what did Jimi use? What does Guthrie use? Rotosounds. Very cheap.

All the same, Elixirs DO sound good for longer, probably in excess of what they say in the adverts, actually, which in this age of hyperbole can't be bad! Somehow they seem to break less as well.

I'd not put Elixirs on my EJ Strat, but that's not what that sound is about. I can more-or-less guarantee that the Nanowebs will last longer than three sets of normal strings, which is why I'm giving them four stars. If you've got a workhorse guitar that you play every day for a few hours, then it's a no-brainer at least to try them out.

Elixir promises a lot with their Optiweb range but I haven't tried them yet. I'll let you know. In the meantime give these a shot perhaps. What's the worst that could happen?

Durable. Smooth. Non-corrosive.

Young-Bin, 09.07.2016
I have tried MANY guitar strings over the past few years and I ALWAYS end up back to the Elixir Nanoweb strings.
Not only does it save me money in the long run due to its durability, it has a nice "punchy" attack to it which I really like.
But the main selling point for me is the fact that it doesn't corrode with my HIGHLY acidic sweat.
I sweat a lot and it's very corrosive on the strings. Any uncoated strings will completely lose it's original lustre in just 2 hours of playing and it makes it harder to play with lots of friction and string noise. Other coated strings only last a bit longer than that.
Elixirs, however, are perfect for me as it lasts much longer and has a nice smooth feel.

1) Lasts much longer than ordinary strings
2) Smooth feel
3) No string noise
4) Nice Mid-range response
5) No dirt accumulated at the bottom of the strings

1) Tone is a bit lost with coating
2) The smooth feel could also be a con as not everyone likes it, so you have to try it out yourself.
3) I have yet to personally experience it but some people say that the G string snaps very easily.
4) Much more expensive than regular strings

These strings may be expensive but it saves you money in the long run so don't be scared and turned off by the price!
If you have an acoustic guitar, take a look at the Acoustic strings from Elixirs as well!

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
