Elixir Strings

Since their beginning in 1997, Elixir Strings has been considered the pioneer in coated string technology.  According to players, they retain their tone longer than any other string.  With Elixir Strings, the coating acts as a physical barrier between the string and its damaging environment. They are available in NANOWEB® or POLYWEB® Coating and are the only brand to coat the entire string – protecting not only the outer string surface, but also the gaps between the windings.

POLYWEB Coating

  • Warm tone
  • Smooth feel with less finger squeak
  • Extend tone life

NANOWEB Coating

  • Bright and lively tone
  • Feels more like traditional strings
  • Smooth feel with less finger squeak
  • Extend tone life
Elirir Strings Keeps the Gunk Out

Why use Elixir Strings?

Extend Tone Life

When Elixir Strings burst onto the string scene in 1997, our patented coating technology was unique – and still is.

Other strings are sabotaged by debris and skin particles, which get trapped between the windings when you play, contaminating your strings and killing your tone.

With Elixir Strings, the coating acts as a physical barrier between the string and its damaging environment. Elixir Strings is the only brand to coat the entire string – protecting not only the outer string surface, but also the gaps between the windings.

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

Elirir Strings Retain Tone Longer

You can see why the uncoated string is sounding lifeless. Tiny bits of tone-killing skin, oil and dirt get trapped in the windings of the uncoated string. The buildup of gunk keeps the uncoated string from vibrating. Elixir Strings is the only coated string brand to protect the entire string with an ultra-thin coating, keeping gunk out of the gaps between the windings. Results? Players tell us their tone lasts longer than any other string, uncoated or coated.

The photos above are examples of what can happen to your strings after approximately 15 hours of play.
