Elixir Nanoweb Light - Experience report on an OLP StingRay

mr_brownstone, 07.11.2009
For a long time I thought about whether I should really spend almost 50EUR on strings. Then I simply dared.

Elixir promises a 3-5x longer fresh sound through the ultra-thin Nanoweb coating. As a slap-fanatic it is important to me: Long have a brilliant and fresh sound.

I straightened the strings very much. The sound was ok. Something laff and not quite as alive as I like him (but that is taste question). On the StingRay replica he was really great, on a JazzBass I found it not so suitable.

But now to the question of the questions with these strings - do they keep their promise? My experience was the following:
The super-fresh start sound of the strings was no longer than with "normal" strings. But the phase, where the strings still sounded fresh and quite crisp, was significantly longer than I would otherwise be accustomed to by strings.
After about 3 months it went however nevertheless more and more downwards. This could be determined on the one hand by the sound, but also by the optics: the coating begins after a short time (in much pre-recorded places) to take off and that goes on and on. After that, it looks really a bit disgusting and despaired.

In the end, the strings did not make it into my "recall". This was mainly due to my sound taste, but also to the fact that the haptic was played after 3 months.
I prefer to buy 2x quite good strings and am happier than with these strings.

Who does not like these strings ....

Hansi_Bass, 06.04.2015
should possibly switch to another instrument. On the one hand, these things last forever compared to other strings with relatively consistent sound.

And that's it! The sound does not look like it at the beginning, but it does not fade after 3 hours as with all other strings. That the parts "freak out" does not bother me at all! I do not care if it looks good either - I go on stage with my bass to make music and not to present well-designed strings. Otherwise I would buy "Heidi Klum" signature strings!

I have been playing these wires for years and once raised more sane ones .... they were exactly 10 minutes on the board and then they were in the barrel. As good as the Elixir are no other - after Elixir I felt everyone else as fun brakes!

But who likes it cheap, please! In the end, 99% of the actual sound comes from the FINGERS anyway!

And .... if the bass finds it good, that every few days, new strings are raised, preferably even different manufacturers, I dare to doubt it. Just because you're screwing your neck every day does not make you play like Jaco?
