I recently picked up a 3 pack of Elixir Light Nanoweb strings as a favor to my brother-in-law, who needed to borrow my guitar for a few weeks while his was in for repairs. I normally play uncoated strings, but his body chemistry literally killed them in one day! So I went online to Shoreline and ordered a 3 pack (one for my guitar now, and two for him later!), and a few regular sets of other strings. I haven't used Elixirs in quite a few years, and I also have only been using medium gauge strings on my D18, so my plan was to let him use it for a few weeks, rip off the Elixirs and get back to business as usual. Boy, was I shocked at how good my D18 sounded and played with these on it! The highs were clear, the mids loud, and the lows full! And the "new string zing" that I love so much (but had always felt that Elixirs lacked) was there, too! Not to mention how great the light gauge felt to my fingers! After 2 weeks, I still have them on, and I'm really happy with the results. Perhaps it was more my guitar opening up over time, or maybe my own ears changing, but I don't think this will be the last time I put these on my D18!
Also, more to the quality and longevity of Elixirs, as I mentioned, my brother-in-law can kill uncoated strings in record time, but these Elixirs sound, feel, and play just as good 2+ weeks in as they did day one! Thanks John for a great price, great service, and great products!
Consistently good sound that lasts a LONG time. Not as good a sound as a fresh pair of John Pearse strings, or they'd get 5 stars!. But then, I'd have to change Pearse strings every 2-3 weeks, and the sound would decline even before that. These Elixirs last for months! They're durable too. Haven't broken a string in several years. Give 'em a shot. As for Shoreline Music, they get 5 stars for sure. Our favorite musical supplies dealer, hands down.
These have to be the best acoustic guitar strings around ! Even better they are priced better than anyone at Shoreline Music. Thanks guys!! We play over 250 gigs a year as STEFnROCK here in Las Vegas so we needed these strings from Shoreline and will continue using them for our needs.
I bought the three pack of 80/20 nanoweb strings for my anderson crowdster and couldn't be happier! They sound great and at a great price and they arrived in three days!Shoreline rocks!! Tell your fellow musicians!
The 80/20 Bronze strings give me the bright sound I like, the Nanoweb coating makes them hold that sound longer than other strings I have used. Shoreline has the best prices and the fastest service on the internet. I got my strings in three days!! Note that the three pack is not three singles bundled together, so you'll need some tape or a rubber band to keep a single set in your guitar case
