Elixir Acoustic Nanoweb strings don’t just sound great; their micro-thin coating keeps them sounding great for a lot longer than average strings. If you want to keep your guitar tone consistently great day in and day out, put on a set of Elixir Acoustic Nanoweb strings. Their coating actually cuts down on unnecessary finger friction. You’ll be amazed at how long they last! Less string changes means having to buy strings less often.
Elixir Acoustic Nanoweb Strings entered the string scene in 1997. Their patented coating technology was unique – and still is. Other strings are sabotaged by debris and skin particles, which get trapped between the windings when you play, contaminating your strings and killing your tone. With Elixir Strings, the coating acts as a physical barrier between the string and its damaging environment. Elixir Strings is the only brand to coat the entire string – protecting not only the outer string surface, but also the gaps between the windings. Result: Elixir Strings players report their tone lasts longer than any other string – uncoated or coated.
Guitar builders like Taylor, McIlroy and Collings use these strings as standard on their guitars. Guitarists like John Paul Jones, Richard Thompson and Sungha Yung put them on theirs too.
