What makes Elixir® Strings a favorite among artists like Clive Carroll?  It’s their great tone, smooth feel, no string squeak and extended tone life. And for Clive, it’s their wonderful depth of tone and playability that enables his guitars to sound and feel their best in the studio and at shows.

Elixir Strings is still the only brand to coat the entire string – protecting 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 string, uncoated or coated.*

When it comes to finding your tone and feel, Elixir Strings offers three acoustic premium string options.  The 80/20 Bronze with POLYWEB® Coating provides a warm tone and slick, fast feel.  The Phosphor Bronze with NANOWEB Coating is full-bodied with sparkling high-end clarity and a feel more like a traditional string. The 80/20 Bronze with NANOWEB Coating is bright and vibrant with a feel more like a traditional string.
