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.

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!

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