I am using the Thomastik AC211 Plectrum strings with my Art & Lutherie 12 Cedar Antique Burst. I am not sure what kind of strings came with it originally, but those did not satisfy me. Therefore I tried the Elixir Nanoweb Medium 12 Str. Acoustic and the Thomastik AC211 Plectrum. The Elixir Nanoweb strings are not bad. They do last very long since they are coated strings. But the Thomastic AC211 Plectrum really do reach the next level. They are very brilliant but still warm. The sound is very balanced. Even if they do not last as long as the Elixir Nanoweb strings they are my choice. Using GHS Fast Fret they last long enough to become a better sounding alternative to coated strings.

Normally I have on all guitars 010 or 011 -er Elixir, wanted to compare as a comparison once polished strings. The first impression was very good. The strings are classed and keep the mood quite stable. The ground windings give a special feel, to which I had accustomed very quickly after 1-2 hours. However, in direct comparison to Elixir strings, they lose the brilliance very quickly and then sound right in the middle. After cleaning with 'GHS Fast Fret' my fingers were always black and the sound did not get any better. For me are currently the Elixir DIE reference, Thomastik are good, are very pleasant to play, but do not come into question for me permanently, because I like a lasting, clear and pure sound.
