Elixir Strings Electric Guitar Strings w NANOWEB Coating, Custom Light (.009-.046)


Amp up your guitar’s tone life with the same premium electric guitar strings that experienced players worldwide trust to keep their incredible tone longer than any other string available. Unlike other string brands, Elixir Strings coats the whole string. This protects not only the outer string surface but also the gaps between the windings where common tone-deadening gunk typically builds up in other brands’ coated and uncoated guitar strings. Who wouldn’t love more quality playing time between the hassle and cost of string changes? Engineered to endure, these nickel-plated steel electric guitar strings boast a ton of bright, vibrant presence and dynamic punch. Compared to our original POLYWEB Coating, the ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating allows a more traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel. For a slicker, gentler feel, try a set of electric guitar strings with our original POLYWEB Coating, which also feature a warmer tone. Of course, the kind of string you play is all a matter of personal preference. Not sure what tone or feel is right for you? Try them out for yourself, and find your new favorite string from Elixir Strings. For a more in-depth look at what makes our strings so special, scroll to the branded info further down the page. Elixir Strings: Great tone. Long life.

An Ode To Normal Strings (Comparison) Can’t go wrong with Elixir’s, I’ve used them for years and they’re just plain jane superb sounding strings.To me, I’ve tried these versus regular strings, and truth be told they’re both really good in different ways. I tried d’addario nickel wound, and the differences I found were that the D’addario were a little more transparent on the high strings, and the low strings were a bit dull sounding, but still clear enough to hear the sound of the guitar & pickups. I really liked them,…

Once you break them in and get over the slickness of the strings …you’ll find it hard to go back to “regular” nickel-wound varieties. At roughly $10-$13 for a set, depending upon where you buy them from, they are pricey but the longevity and ease of playing make them worth it. As a beginner guitar player who is still exploring accessories that best suit him, I played the 0.10-0.46 set (and I was fortunate to find a low price of $5.99/set on Amazon) and they felt like I was playing a 0.09-0.42 set from the likes of Ernie Ball, D’addario, etc. I had…

Best. Strings. Ever. The best guitar strings I’ve ever used in my 9 years of playing. I used to just get cheap string like Ernie Ball and I thought that was fine, but I hated having to change them so regularly. I initially tried the Elixir polyweb with my acoustic, and even though they do last a long time, there was always a noticeable coating on them. Then I tried the nanoweb acoustic string. They are absolutely fantastic and I wondered if the electric string were good as well. After trying the electric strings…
