The strings are so comfortable to play and there is very little string noise.
We use these strings on my wife's Taylor mini because they maintain their quality tone longer than any other strings we've tried (and we've tried a few.) She wants strings that bring out the best in the guitar, but she also doesn't want to be changing strings every month. These Elixirs seem to last 4-5 months with no reduction in sound quality. Don't know how they do it, but we really appreciate the convenience - and the high quality that accompanies it!
I use uncoated strings on one of my guitars but find that coated works best on others. I have Elixir 80/20 Polywebs on a guitar now and, even though I think that PB will sound better, I love the way they feel! I have used Elixir PB on a Breedlove I used to own and really think they are the best coated string out there. Great feel and tone and worth the extra you pay!
Far and away, the best sounding and longest lasting coated strings. I need to use coated, and Elixir's last longer than all the others! I highly recommend them!
