I have been using Elixir strings for years because they LAST a longer time before I have to change to new strings. Elixir can hold up to humid conditions. I like the tone and feel of the PB Lights. Competitive pricing at Shoreline Music with OUTSTANDING service!!!
I have to admit, it has taken me a little time to warm up to these strings. At first I found them a bit slippery. But after playing them for a while I appreciate the quiet non-squeak properties and eventually didn’t find them slippery at all, just different. They feel sensational for fingerstyle playing. Overall, they last a very, very long time with nice rich and even tone. The only downside is the coating fraying that is noticeable directly over the soundhole as the strings age. The fraying doesn’t seem to affect the tone, but looks funny. As always, Shoreline is a pleasure to do business with.
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!
