OPTIWEB Coating provides players the performance of a natural string – that crisp tone, natural feel and playable grip they know and love, but with the long-lasting tone life of ELIXIR Strings. But don't just take our word for it, listen to the strings in our Sound Xperience and hear for yourself which electric string is the right fit for your sound.

Choosing the tone and feel of a traditional string used to mean having to compromise tone life. Not any longer. With ELIXIR Strings the entire string is protected. The coating – whether it be OPTIWEB, NANOWEB or POLYWEB – protects not only the outer string surface, but also the gaps between the windings. As a result, ELIXIR Strings retain their tone longer than any other brand's coated or uncoated string.*
