Product Reviews for Elixir Electric Guitar NanoWeb Coating, .009 - .042, 12002

Elixir Electric Guitar NanoWeb Coating, .009 - .042, 120023Dave BJanuary 17, 2012First, this review has nothing to do with string life. I also want to preface that Elixir electrics sound better on another guitar I have (Taylor T3) than other strings I've tried. I just finished an in home shoot out. Contenders were these, D'Addario and Fender 3150L (pure nickel). I was going for gauge, and D'Addario doesn't have pure nickel in this gauge, only plated, and Elixir doesn't state what these are made of. D'Addario pure nickel have slightly smaller bass strings. For the comparison, I changed strings after a few days so they still all sounded very good. These were third place to the Fender. The Fender were clearer above the 12th fret and I am guessing because of the bullet end (am using a Strat), on the string there was sustain. The Elixir were not as defined as either of the other two for chording. Again, this is a very good string. I choose the Fender because of perceived clarity above the 12th and overall sustain.

"Whether chicken-pickin', slingin' the blues, or rockin' the house, Elixir Strings Electric Guitar Strings deliver!

"Every time you play your guitar, tiny bits of you are left to invade the windings to contaminate your strings and kill your tone. Elixir Strings are the only strings that keep dirt out of the windings by coating the entire string. Our ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating provides a bright, lively tone that players tell us lasts longer than any other string, uncoated or coated. This means you buy fewer sets of strings, change them less often and trust your guitar is ready to go whenever you are.
