Additional Information about Elixir Strings

  • Why use Elixir Strings?

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

  • Differences between POLYWEB, NANOWEB and OPTIWEB Coatings

    Elixir® Strings are available in distinct protective coatings.  The coatings feature the same protection and extend tone life, but differ in tone and feel.

  • Extend Tone Life

    A string is "dead" when it no longer exhibits the intensity of frequencies it had when it was new. When you pluck a new string, you can hear the high-frequency harmonics that makes an instrument's tone vibrant.
