My father wanted to make his own set for his guitar because he has a bit sensitive skin (has bunch of skin problems, not to mention developing arthritis).

He liked flatwound strings because they aren't hard on the fingers but he wanted to try something new and missed the sound of the roundwounds.

He was impressed with the quality (they were removed and put back on on the guitar, I think, 3 times) and loved the coated feel they had. He claims they are not hard on his fingers.

They are still on after almost a year of use. I'd say he plays around 5-10 hours per week. Not bad I say!

My strings of choice for the last 8 years or so. Smooth, durable, crisp tones all day.

Lebt lange, aber nciht allzu lange
TripleX, 27.12.2009
Ich habe die Elixir Saiten eigentlich schon ziemlich lange. Für den Gelegenheitsgitarristen sind sie das Beste. Der Sound ist eigentlich nicht merklich von nicht beschichteten Saiten zu unterscheiden was sich sehen lässt. Spielt man jedoch in einer Band wird die Angelegenheit aber mit der Zeit teuer. Das Problem ist, obwohl es ja gar nicht so dünne Saiten sind, dass die G, B und E Saite trotz versprochener langer Lebenszeit vergleichbar oft reißt wie die normalen Saiten. Spielt man mit diesen Saiten haufiger kann man, wie gesagt, sich darauf gefasst machen viele Sätze im Jahr zu kaufen.

Wie man hier sieht musste ich schon einzelne Saiten kaufen, da sie doch nicht so lange leben.

Een heerlijke snaar
11.02.2016
Tja wat moet ik er van zeggen. Thomann vraagt mij of ik een review wil schrijven voor deze ene snaar.

Het beste aan deze snaar is dat je hem los kan bestellen. Als je in DADGAD speelt is de b-snaar meestal aan de lichte kant. Met een .018 los je dit probleem goedkoop op. Dus gewoon meebestellen met de medium .013 - .056
set ter vervanging van de .017
