I don't like changing strings and these really last a long time. They sound great, I'm very pleased. Shoreline was great to deal with as usual.
Always love purchasing from Shoreline Music. Great customer service and great pricing. I was able to get these strings to a friend who swears by Elixir strings.
In my experience, Elixirs sound good when you first put them on but sound even better after they're on a bit and "played-in". They have that nice, bright sound that a lot of folks really like when putting on new strings. The difference is that it lasts, and lasts, and lasts.
I play fingerstyle guitar, a lot, and though most people are impressed by the way they feel on your fretting hand, I find it makes a difference on right hand nail longevity, as well. I do like the fact that you don't get the "string zing" that's normally inherent in uncoated strings, though that's not a terribly big issue for me.
If you like to change strings - don't buy Elixirs. If you want a great sounding and feeling string that lasts a LONG time, then Elixirs just might be your favorite string.
The current 2 for 3 pack that Shoreline & Elixir is offering is a great value. I missed out the last time they were offering these so don't wait - buy them while they last.
