Just Strings & Elixir Strings
December 10, 2021
I really enjoy playing on these strings. Sound and feel great… last a good long time with much less tonal deterioration over time. Just Strings is a pleasure to do business with. Easy ordering and quick delivery. Thanks Just Strings! — Hunt
Hold tone and feel good. None.

Great sounding strings
November 29, 2021
Put the .10’s on my acoustic after changing out from the .12’s. Same great sound but a lot less pressure on the fingers.
Great sound but less pressure on the fingers. Prices going up.

I use Elixir strings on all but one of my guitars. Every thing from a O Recording King, - to a Martin D28. That totals up to 11 guitars. I've tried a number of brands, but always go back to Elixir. Long life, Great tone, Low string noise.

Elixir strings are the "no worry" strings.

With all the concerns of live performance I know I can always depend on Elixir strings. I have never had one to break. Even when I know I should change them, they still sound better than regular strings. I hope I never have to use any other strings.
Minimal stretching and great tonal quality even when they need to be changed. I have never had a bad experience with Elixir strings.

My old standby

I recently bought some sets of a few other famous brands mainly because of price. I couldn't leave any or them on very long and i"ve returned Elixers. They give me the sound and longevity I need.

Coated Strings
July 21, 2016
I have used these and other coated strings and they have some excellent uses. Sweating on the strings can shorten the string life, especially during hot weather. The coating can help minimize the problem of sweaty hands deteriorating the strings over a length of time.
Some players hands corrode strings rather quickly and these strings can be VERY beneficial to those players.
But the bigger factor would be the amount of playing you do. If you play several hours daily, you will likely wear strings out long before the effects of corrosion deaden the string. Feel the backside of the wound strings to see if the frets are wearing deep indentations into the windings, especially on the G string.
If corrosion is not a major issue in your guitar use and if you play many hours each day, it will likely be more cost effective to buy good uncoated string sets and just change them more frequently.
These are excellent strings but they cost almost 3 times as much as uncoated strings. If in your use they last 4 times longer than uncoated strings, they make good sense.
Bottom line, these strings are excellent for guitars that do not get high amounts of use or for players who have issues with string corrosion due to the nature of their hands or environment.

Okay for recording, but some tone quality is sacrificed for no-squeak.

I like them a lot. They stay in tune very well. Although I have been busy and and only play in spurts. I'm sure that I will buy THEM again if they stay this way for a while. I'm pleased that I gave them a try.

Elixir Acoustic Guitar Phosphor Bronze NanoWeb Coating, .010 - .047
September 7, 2010
As I play more electric than acoustic, I wanted a string that would have more of an electric touch and still not detract from the tone of my acoustic. I've enjoyed Elixirs since starting to play again about 3 years ago... These do the job. I'm happy!

Not a fan of these at all... They don't feel natural and impede my playing... Don't really care if they "last longer," they don't feel correct on a guitar, period. Thumbs down.

Elixir Phoshor Bronze NanoWebs
May 10, 2010
I was excited when they came out with the Phosphor Bronze line. So I bit the bullet and bought a set.
You know when you put on a new set of strings the sound is really bright and crisp for the first few time you play, then they mellow out over time (which is a good thing!). These NanoWebs sound the same from the moment you put them on till you replace them.
And they really bring out the tones of your guitar.
They are a little more money, but they are Sweet!

Very good strings: I use them often on my Sobell acoustic archtop and my custom Michael Dunn Selmer-style guitar. Very reliable, very easy to play. Highly recommended.

"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.
