Still like the phosphor Bronze better.

I wanted to try the 80/20 PolyWeb Coating. They were excellent strings and I can see why people love them. But the Phosphor Bronze Nanoweb still works better for me!
I guess with strings as excellent as Elixirs, it just comes down to personal preference and what works better on the guitar you happen to own. I had to try them - just to silence the voice in my head that says "how do you know you don't like it - if you've never even tried it?" So.... now I know!
Long lasting Sound Great Stay in tune Huh?

I've used these strings on my Martin HD-28 now for over 6 years. Like Brian Watt, I am gigging and recording all the time. These strings sound better than anything I've tried. Tone and balance are equal from set to set. Last a LONG time. And they sound really good with a nice studio condenser near the 12th. :)

Elixir strings are the only strings I play on acoustic. 13's have amazing tone for studio, and playing out. They're built to last.

I started using Elixir strings shortly after they came on the market and liked them immediately. When they developed the nano web formula I went with them up until they produced the phosphor bronze, which I then started using exclusively on all my acoustics. Once in awhile I'd put on a set of coated strings from other manufacturers, but none of them seemed to hit the same satisfaction spot as well as the Elixirs. The only complaint I've had is over string breakage, (mostly the"G"), sometimes on the same day I put them on and always at a gig of course. I keep a log of all string changes and why so I"ll certainly let you know. You can ditto this note for the polywebs as well. Thanks for the interest.

I have been using the Elixir 80/20 Poly-web bronze mediums on my Martin D28 custom for four years. The strings feel great to play, last much longer than regular strings and sound superb on my guitar.

They are OK they do last longer than some but lately they don't seem to. Is it because of the summer heat and humidity? They still do sound the best for my dreadnought Larrivee'.

I play 3 - 4 gigs a week and Elixirs last about 5 times longer, sound great for ages and repel the copious amounts of sweat I subject them to. No other string I've used rates a mention next to these.

The best sounding and longest lasting set of strings I have ever used.

These strings are exquisite! I used to use Dean Markley's. No more! Elixirs are the way to go!! They last FOREVER and still seem new! These are the strings I'll use 'til the day I die!

PolyWeb Coating






"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.
