Elixir’s are my favorites!
February 27, 2021
I like the feel and that they last a long time.
I use them on my acoustic and electric 6 strings and on all my bass guitars as well.
I’ve been a fan of Elixir since they came out.
I’ve tried other brands and sizes but always come beck to these.
Awesome feel Last long Sound great Haven?t found any

Last a long time...BUT
March 20, 2019
These strings last a very long time. As far as they sound and feel I hear and feel no difference at all between these and uncoated strings. They are made out of metal (like all strings), and do the same thing as any other metal string--but the coating definitely makes them last a long time. I gig every week and at points many gigs per week. And I pickup and play every day--the strings last for months and months. The worst time for me is summer when I go through more strings because of sweating--but these even do better in the summer as well. HOWEVER (ELIXIR, ARE YOU LISTENING?), why doesn't Elixir make a set with these higher gauge high strings like this set AND higher gauge low strings (like 32, 42, 52). I find the lower gauge wound strings to be too slinky. PLEASE make a gauge like: 11, 14, 18, 30 or 32, 42, 52 or something similar. I know a lot of people that would like that.
Last for a very long time even with lots of gigs. No heavier wound strings like: 30 or 32, 42, 52 along with the heavier 11, 14, 18 unwound strings. Why?

Amazing Strings
January 2, 2013
I normally use Ernie Ball .10's and put up with the usual buzz and finger squeeks but my son got me these for christmas and I just happened to get a new Peavey JF-1 with crappy factory installed strings so I threw these on. Well I am extremely impressed. They are fantastic and will be the string of choice from now on. I have ordered 10 sets and as I need to replace the strings on my other 5 guitars I will use these. 5 stars is not enough but thats all I can select.

Almost perfect!

Tried them all on my Eastman T186MX and you cannot fool your guitar. It knows when it's right. I don't like flats or the twanginess of regular rounds. These have a punchy mellowness to them without being muddy. Nice jazz tone. I only wish this set had a wound 3rd like the D'Addario 115W set. I just swap out the 3rd. I love the reduced finger squeak. I hardly ever change strings so using Elixirs makes a lot of sense... but after playing these I actually enjoy changing strings now! You don't play your guitar....you play your strings!

The item was excellent. The delivery was as fast as I thought possible as I live in Australia. The selection of strings is amazing. I used a local string supplier in Australia to get some strings that I needed fast. They still haven't turned up and I was meet with average service. This was not the case with just stings. The service and communication was of an very high standard. I will recommend this company to anyone who asks and maybe some that don't ask. Thanks

Great Strat String
May 19, 2010
If you want your Strat to cut through the mix then this is the string for you. Try em and you will never use another string on your Strat.

They are still the best strings for me to play. I was just replacing the Elixirs that I had been playing for the past several months. Total satisfaction and I have previously recommend them to others and of course will continue to do so.

Great strings, great tone, and I really love the longevity I get with these strings. Hard to beat, for sure.

Love the feel
August 16, 2009
The one thing I've always hated about strings was that gummy feeling after a little use. I've used everything from Fastfret to talcum powder. Elixir strings are the only strings to have that feeling right out of the box.

Really the best thing going, its like having a flatwound without the flat wound. smooth, responsive, and i heard through the "grapeving" that these strings are really made by D'Addario! But with the Gore nanoweb coating! Go figure, who would of thought of it, although D'Addario does have its own "coated" strings.

I like Elixers better. Period.

"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.
