Elixir Strings was born in 1995. They provide various combinations of original POLYWEB® Coating and ultra-thin NANOWEB® Coating strings for acoustic and electric guitar, bass, mandolin, and banjo. Each produces a different tone “flavor,” but all are variations of the same basic idea: a microscopically thin, advanced polymer tube that surrounds the string to protect it from corrosion and dirt without making any contact whatsoever with the critical area between the windings where the "critical zone of tone" is found and each perfect note is born.
For these and many other reasons, Elixir Strings have struck a serious chord with musicians around the world. Whether you’re playing for yourself or for an arena packed with fans, players report their tone lasts longer than any other string, uncoated or coated. This means you buy fewer sets of strings, change them less often, and trust that your guitar is ready to go when you are.
