Elixir® Acoustic 80/20 Bronze Strings with POLYWEB Coating deliver a warm, "played-in" tone together with extended tone life that players have come to expect from Elixir Strings. 

Extended Tone Life

When Elixir Strings burst onto the string scene in 1997, our patented coating technology was unique – and still is.

Other strings are sabotaged by debris and skin particles, which get trapped between the windings when you play, contaminating your strings and killing your tone.

With Elixir Strings, the coating acts as a physical barrier between the string and its damaging environment. Elixir Strings is the only brand to coat the entire string – protecting not only the outer string surface, but also the gaps between the windings.

Result: Elixir Strings players report their tone lasts longer than any other string – uncoated or coated.

 

Differences Between POLYWEB and NANOWEB Coatings

Elixir® Strings are available in two distinct flavors of protective coating. Both feature the same patented protection and extend tone life, but differ in tone and feel. Some players prefer POLYWEB Coating and others NANOWEB Coating. It's a personal preference!

  • Smooth feel with less finger squeak
