Simply, Great Strings!
December 2, 2022
I string all of our acoustic guitars with Elixir acoustic 80/20 light Polyweb 12-53 strings.

These strings provide exceptional tone, volume and long life, for our bands' live shows and also recording projects.

I highly recommend this wonderful product! Simply great strings!

I must add...Just Strings is an incredible company! I place my order/s and it is processed immediately! Absolutely stellar customer service!
Exceptional tone, volume and long life! Darlene and I are very pleased! None

This isn't my first order of Elixirs. They last me a fairly good while and have a great tone.

These strings last forecer

I have been using these Polyweb strings for years on all my guitars. (I have also strung my guitars with many other brands, including several other coated strings, in the process.) The Elixirs don’t necessarily have the warmest tone especially when new, but I play mostly through a PA so their bright tone is actually a good thing for my style of playing. I have always been impressed with how many hours I can get out of a set before there is noticeable tone loss and I have never broken one of these strings.
These strings last forever. The coating makes them easier on the fingers than most other strings on the market. They are well made and do not break easily. Because of the coating there is less and slide ?squeak? when moving up and down the fretboard. Not the warmest of times, so depending on your playing style and the type of music you play, this may be a con for you.

I've been using juststrings.com for the last three years. They are reliable and often feature sharp discounts on popular string bands.

They are friendly. Try them.
Great prices, dependable service. None.

These are my strings of choice for all my steel string acoustic guitars!

Length of life, tone and response is the name of the game when I'm hunting for strings and these puppies have all of the above. I tend to prefer the 80/20's to Phosphor Bronze for tonal purposes but both really work beautifully when going Elixer. I love the way these strings feel on my fingers as well. No resistance and silky smooth! These strings have everything I want in tone, feel and length of life. I use the 11's for standard E tuning and the 12's for any alternate tunings I use for modern fingerstyle gigs. Give em a shot. You won't regret it!

if you want a significantly warmer sound and can live with a slight reduction in acoustic volume (great for my old archtop) you can't go wrong. Plus they last much longer than standard strings.

No matter how aggressive you might play them, they come back every time.

I'm addicted to these strings for a few reasons. One, the coating is applied on the outside of the windings, so they feel very slick, and that helps me with all the sliding I do. Two: Between the coating and the anti-rust small strings, the strings do not rust. Three: They sound good for much longer than conventional strings. Four: I really like the tone of the strings.

Maybe a five

My Taylor is really bright, wanted to go a little warmer and these strings do that nicely. I haven't had them on long enough to judge the wear, but if they wear like the nanos then these will be a five.

My husband loves them. He won't have anything else. Ben Rochester (The Rochester Family) told him about them and he has been using them about 3 or 4 years now. They last a lot longer than other strings.

The strings are longer lasting than any string I've tried, they are easy on the fingers also. I play Taylor guitars, and have been a musician for 25 years..

I play in the Gulf Coast Florida panhandle area (Pensacola/Daphne/Mobile) where the air tends to be very humid and salty. I've had this set on now for about 6 weeks and our Soundman hasn't had to change my EQ at all. The strings are maintaining their brightness and ability to produce overtones - the harmonics are still "clear as a bell". I'm 59 years old and been playing since I was 12. I see no reason to use any other Acoustic Guitar strings but Elixir.

"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 original POLYWEB Coating provides a warm 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.
