Elixir’s Nanoweb phosphor bronze wound acoustic guitar strings were the first to popularise the idea “oil and sweat repellant” outer coatings. They have the classic rich, bright tone of phosphor bronze guitar strings but maintain their tone for AGES thanks to their proprietary coating. This also gives them a satisfying slidey feeling under the fingers.
“These new strings capture the rich, expressive tone of the finest phosphor bronze strings and extend that tone 3-5 times longer than ordinary strings”, says Craig Theorin, product manager at Elixir Strings. “Phosphor bronze players, who are typically accustomed to a short-lived ‘sweet spot’ of tone, report to us that they experience this coveted tone consistently through the entire life of the strings.” These Elixir Strings capture the sweet spot of that unique phosphor bronze tone and extend it 3-5x longer than conventional strings.
