I've tried Elixer strings on both electric and acoustic in the past. On electric, I've never been fond of the feel. To me they're a combination of a little too tight and a little slippery under my fingers. On 6 string acoustic they're okay but a little too bright sounding for my taste. However, when it comes to 12 string (I only use mine for around 10-20% of a standard acoustic gig) I see them as excellent value for money. I have little patience for changing strings on my 12 string Takemine so like to do it far less than I would on my Martin D28. These keep a nice bright consistent sound for a long time and aren't too easy to break. I'm a pretty heavy hitter as a player and using them on 6 string is impractical to me due to the higher cost of Elixer strings. This is a nice gauge also. Slightly lighter than the last set I used (Martin) which makes certain things more comfortable to play on 12 string. Will definitely buy again!
Having a good twelve string guitar is awesome! Right up until the time when you have to restring the thing! Especially (as with mine) if it is a slothead? ANYTHING that means I can go longer between pit stops is welcome. These strings REALLY do last a lot longer than any other brand I?ve tried. The sound they give does not seem to change over time, they are very consistent. I?ve never snapped one either! The sound is excellent, they are not as bright as some other brands can be, but this is not necessarily a terrible thing. Overall they provide a well-balanced tone, and a very comfortable playing experience. The protective coating on these strings seems to have improved compared to the earlier iterations of Elixir strings, the coating no longer seems to ?peel? in the way it used to. More playing, less restringing! This can only be a good thing.
