The long time undisputed acoustic guitarist’s favourite string! Elixir’s Nanoweb coating is still the leading and highest performing in the industry! Nanoweb is their thinnest acoustic guitar string coating and will reliably increase your typical string life by 3-5 times, along with the plain strings which are also anti-rust treated! This means you get bright, clear and full tone for so much longer than you usually would.
Under the hood (aka the coating) is an industry standard phosphor bronze string which has the perfect balance of volume, projection and playability completely unsullied by the coating.
The consensus among many musicians is that phosphor bronze strings offer the most sensitive, expressive tone that brings out the very best in guitars—virtually taking them to a higher level of play. However, that tone can be short-lived. Elixir Strings has solved this classic conundrum by applying an ultra-thin layer of NANOWEB Coating to protect the string’s windings hence preserving the coveted phosphor bronze tone.
"These new strings capture the rich, expressive tone of the finest phosphor bronze strings and extend that tone 3-5 times longer than ordinary strings", says Craig Theorin, Product Manager, Elixir Strings. "Phosphor bronze players, who are typically accustomed to a short-lived ‘sweet spot’ of tone, report to us that they experience this coveted tone consistently through the entire life of the strings". Many players prefer the rich, textured tone of phosphor bronze strings.
These Elixir Strings capture the sweet spot of that unique phosphor bronze tone and extend it 3-5x longer than conventional strings.
