Great, Long-lasting Strings
May 8, 2022
I've been using Elixir strings for 20 years - they have unbelievable longevity. I play a lot outdoor summertime gigs and my hands (and strings) are always sweaty. Regular, non-coated strings are shot after 2 or 3 such gigs, but not Elixirs... I wipe them off and they're good to go. A set can last me an entire summer.

While the tone is not quite as good as some uncoated strings, it's still very, very good. Unless you are an absolute purist, you will be happy with the tone. I've tried many other brands of coated strings and in my opinion, Elixirs are the best on the market for longevity and tone.

Excellent longevity Great tone

Elixirs are long-lasting. They settle in quickly - usually the same day I install them on my bass. The sound is consistent throughout the range of each string. The feel of each string is excellent thanks to the nanoweb coating on the strings. I highly recommend them.
Longer life than most strings Consistent sound throughout the range of each string Comfortable underneath fingers due to coating Settles in quickly on the bass (less than 24 hours) Somewhat pricey Limited gauge sizes

I couldn’t care less about the strings, it’s this website that is the true rock star. Find the strings you want and order them. Sign up for the mailer and get discounts!! Seriously, I ordered 4 sets, and one set was on back order, they included a note regarding and sent the extra set a day later. They also include generic picks that work great for jam sessions and no one can find a pick !!!!
Great service - free picks !!! Bass strings are expensive

I have played Elixir strings in the past with no problems. I bought a new Ibanez SR5BBLTD that had Elixirs and the tone is just sweet. No problems after 6 months of playing daily!

shredded coating
September 19, 2013
Although I've used Elixer bass strings for three years, a few months ago I bought an Ibanez BTB675-M bass and it came with Elixer strings on it. After two months, the B, E, and A string started shredding. They turned into "hairy" strings and were so distracting that I finally had to remove them. I must say the coating is very tough and hard to remove.

Great price. I use Elixirs on my five string fretless basses. I love the smooth feel and long life. If they made a set in 35-95 I would use them on my fretted basses as well.

The Elixir strings that I've bought on your shop are great, the sound is really cool, and the shipping was quite quick.

The best all around strings on the market for playing different styles. They rate high and are the longest lasting string I have used. They work well with different techniques.

Seems like I need extra long scale on all my 5 string basses... I've purchased long scale in the past only to find out the "B" string is too short... My fault I guess for not investigating deep enough.
Other than that I love these strings. They are the best coated strings I've used to date... Believe me I've tried them all!

"From deep, rich lows to bright, punchy mids to sweet top-end detail, Elixir Strings deliver the full range of bass tones.

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

Light/Long Scale Gauges: 045 065 080 100 130

5th & 6th string singles available
