Guitar Restringing Tips from ELIXIR® Strings

Instrument care and maintenance is an integral aspect of owning a guitar, and when carrying out your regular checks and cleaning routine, it’s important to check the condition of each and every component of your guitar. Did you know that a buildup of debris in the gaps between the windings of a guitar string can seriously impact the tone? The result is that you’re changing your strings more frequently – a time consuming and costly practice.

That’s where Elixir Strings come in. Elixir Strings sound better for longer, removing the hassle and expense of frequent string changes. Now players spend more time doing what they love most – making music.


When it comes to finding your tone and feel, Elixir Strings offers three premium acoustic string options each with a unique tone and feel:

  • 80/20 Bronze with POLYWEB® Coating, warm and played‐in tone with a slick, fast feel
  • Phosphor Bronze with NANOWEB® Coating, full­‐bodied with sparkling high-­‐end clarity and a smooth, more traditional feel
  • 80/20 Bronze with NANOWEB Coating, crisp and bright with a vibrant presence and a smooth, more traditional feel

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.*
