The ticket
September 16, 2015
I was a light gauge user(10-34). Tried these 11-42s and found that they didn't chew my fingers up. If you want to go with heavier strings, these are smooth and bright.

Way too bright a sound for my taste and they ruin the sound of any vintage oval hole mandolin. I still swear by D'Addarios phospher bronze but I've had some interesting results putting Elixirs on a couple "muddy" or heavy sounding mandolins. Actually to my ears Elixirs sound better when they're old! Too bright when they're new imho. I don't recommend them for Webers.

These are my standby strings for mandolin, and have been for at least five years. I love the tone and longevity. Interesting, I don't care for Elixir strings on my acoustic guitar, but I quite like them on the mandolin.

The only exception was on some oval hole mandolins I owned, they did not sound quite right to me. I have really liked them on every F-Hole mando I have put them on.

I ordered these strings for another band member. I can tell you that they will not use anything else. I introduced our bluegrass gospel group to Elixir strings several years ago and most of us swear by them. The only one we have problems with is the guitar G string keeps breaking. Other than that everyone loves them. If you find a solution to this problem our group would be exclusive to elixir strings.

It is a real pain to change mandolin strings.
These will last you a year to six months depending on how much you play

I have tried many many different mandolin strings over the years and I always come back to the Elixirs. The Nanoweb coating makes slides so easy and they have a really great tone. They do sound a little bright when first installed but that goes away after a day or two. They last a really long time and sound great the whole time, definitely my favorite mandolin strings.

NanoWeb Coated 80/20 Bronze Wound


"Thanks to a patented ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating, Elixir Strings for mandolin retain their full range of tone longer than any other string, uncoated or coated, according to those who play them. All our mandolin strings feature looped ends and our 80/20 bronze-wound strings deliver unsurpassed definition and sustain.

""Every time you play your mandolin, 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 mandolin is ready to go whenever you are."
