Elixir Nanoweb 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings

Elixir Strings are brought to you by W.L. Gore and Associates, an innovator in PTFE polymer since 1958 (think Teflon). If you're a skier and a hiker like me, you've probably used Gore-Tex clothing for years. Now, they turn this expertise to making polymer coatings for their Elixir guitar strings, and the results are striking. You don't have to spend long in any guitar-related discussion before someone eventually begins praising the long-lasting tone of these popular strings. It's this long-lasting tone that has led many major guitar manufacturers to ship their guitars already strung with Elixir strings.

Nanowebs are the brighter version of Elixirs (Polywebs are the other), and in our shop they are the better sellers by far. The Nanoweb coating is thinner than the Polyweb coating, which gives these strings a tone closer to the out-of-the-box brightness of standard strings, as well as giving them a grip a bit more like uncoated strings.

What's not to like?

Elixirs are simply excellent strings. Great tone and feel. The real selling point is that they last 3-4x longer on my guitars than non-coated strings. When you have as many guitars as I do, it's a real plus to be able to have great sounding and playing strings that last long so I don't go broke constantly buying strings.
