The least amount of wait time to receive the products I ordered and at the best price. Mahalo from Hawaii!

powerful sound and tone...

These strings make my guitar 'sing'...the power behind the tone is appealing while not being overbearing in the least...the highs and lows are perfectly matched to give an even presentation...they sound just as good in the studio as when we're playin live...I won't use anything else.

String praise
March 11, 2018
These strings are the only ones I'll use on my Larrivee lv-10. I use the mediums and tune the guitar down a full step. Sounds great even when I play in drop d tuning and have the low e tuned to C. They last as close to forever as you can get out of strings. Well worth the premium in cost. The phosphor bronze sounds the best to me on a rosewood guitar.

Can't beat these strings!
April 2, 2015
I put these on my Blueridge BR-140A and they sound great. It usually takes a day or two of playing to really sound their best, but after that it's just month after month of good sound. The set I have on now has been on for about a year and still sound good. I know a new set will sound even better so I'm ordering more. I'm going to try 80/20s next because the guitar has such a mellow sound and 80/20s I have on another guitar sound nice and bright. You can't go wrong, they sound good and keep on sounding good. I play a few hours a week but friends that play in bands tell me they last for months instead of weeks for un-coated strings.

I put a set of these strings on my Martin D45GE and my guitar sounds like a cannon! Beautiful strings. I'll buy them every time.

These are the strings that I've used on my personal and the ones I build for others. Bright, great tone and even across the range. Big sound on small and full jumbo size guitars for sure!

The best strings for the money. I chew through other strings within a couple of days and these will last a couple of weeks. Great tone. I switch between the standard nanoweb and the phosphor bronze, but either type is excellent.

These are simply the best strings out there for any acoustic guitar. Best tone and the NanoWeb coating makes the strings last 3 times longer than conventional strings. You will love them!

The best strings I've ever used, and I've been stringing guitars for 30 years. Sounds great without string "squeek" on my D41 Martin and '58 model J45 Gibson. Lasts at least 3 times longer than any string on the market! Try them. You'll like them!
good strings

Good if you are looking for a good brassy edge, the only drawback is a little bit of raspy sound to the strings. The nanoweb is great, you can still feel the grooves in the windings but gives that nice smooth feel.

""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.
