Formerly found exclusively in our electric sets, Anti-Rust plated plain steel strings are now available for our acoustic sets as well. This technology extends the life of plain steel strings by 3-5 times. The breakthrough plating process works to prevent rust and corrosion to give you fresh feel and tone every time you pick up your guitar.
Elixir Strings revolutionized guitar strings by finding a way to extend the life of wound stings without compromising tone. Our Anti-Rust plated plain steels complete the long-life set. Now, acoustic guitarists can enjoy the same advantages as electric guitarists—a lifespan three to five times longer than ordinary guitar strings and lasting tone throughout the entire set.
The Choice is Yours
Elixir Strings are available in two different 'flavors'. Both feature the same patented protection and deliver the same extended life, but differ in tone and feel.
|Elixir Strings with ultra thin NANOWEB coating… |
- Have the bright tone and punch of non-coated strings
- Feel like traditional strings
| || |
|Elixir Strings with original POLYWEB coating… |
- Have a balanced tone and smooth response
- Feel comfortably smooth and reduce finger squeak
What's the difference between NANOWEB and POLYWEB coatings?
The difference between our coating 'flavors' is found in the tone and feel of the strings. NANOWEB coated strings sound and feel like uncoated strings - they are bright and lively, and the coating is so micro thin that you can barely tell it's there.
POLYWEB coated strings have a balanced tone and smooth response - they sound like strings that have been 'played in'. In addition, POLYWEB coated strings feel comfortably smooth and help reduce finger squeak.
