Best I've found
November 9, 2019
I've tried different strings over the years to use with my Martin Om and Martin CE)-7 (OO)

and I always come back to these. As a matter of fact, I pretty much have stopped auditioning anything else, because Elixirs are consistently the best - great sound and coated in just the right way so as not to produce a lot of slides and squeaks.

Really love these Phosphor Bronze strings!
November 3, 2017
Length of life, tone and response is the name of the game when I'm hunting for strings and these puppies have all of the above. These are really the only Phosphor Bronze string I care to use! I love the way these strings feel on my fingers as well. No resistance and silky smooth! These strings have everything I want in tone, feel and length of life. I use the 11's for standard E tuning and the 12's for any alternate tunings I use for modern fingerstyle gigs. Give em a shot. You won't regret it!

Before Elixir strings I could kill a set of Martin strings inside of a week, and D'Addario in two. Elixir Nanoweb strings sound great and last for months. By far the better value for me.

Elixir Light - Mediums
February 17, 2014
Elixir 12 - 56 "light - mediums" Nano Webs are awesome. I tried them for the first time and I really liked them. I really didn't want the tension of true Mediums. So this was just the answer and the sound that I was looking for, not to mention the smooth feel! Keep'um coming Elixir - they're great. I highly recommend them...give them a try!

Only acoustic string I've used for over a decade. Never a need to change perfection.
Best I've found yet

I use dropped tunings for fingerstyle and without a doubt they hold up longer & retain their tone better than the many others (coated and non-coated) I've tried. Great product.

Light-Mediums rock!

I play a Taylor 812, and I've used Elixir off and on for about 15 years. Tthe phosphor bronze are WAY stronger that the regular elixirs, and the light -med strings add a new level to the tone I get from such a small bodied guitar. I'm Hooked.

Nice bright sound , and the heavier lower strings give the bottom end the punch the om needs.

Elixer Phosphor Bronze

Best sting in the world for my ears and hands! I have a set on my 12 string Washburn that doesn't get played but about once a month...been on there since 2004 still sound great believe it or not! And I'm pretty fussy about tone. But I do use a string cleaning cloth on all of my stings on all of my guitars!

Nanoweb light/med

Unquestionably the longest lived, highest quality strings available (6/10). I still like and play exp16's and they have better life vs the rest, but the nanowebs go another 7-10 days. By long life, I mean freedom from corrosion. On all strings, I encounter corrosion well before loss of tone.

Elixir Strings

What can I say. I keep trying other strings but come back to Elixir's. They just sound better and don't leave your fingers black. Phosphor Bronze are my favorite. Also I like the lights, however, the medium lights play best on one of my guitars. It got rid of the buzz without adjusting the neck.

"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.
