Every time you play your guitar, microscopic particles of your skin and body oils stay on the strings and decay their lifespan. This process also negatively affects the windings and eventually robs you of your tone. With Elixir NanoWeb Light Acoustic Guitar Strings, you won’t need to worry about that any more. Elixir strings are the only kinds of strings that keep dirt and oils out of the windings because the entire string is coated with an ultra-thin NanoWeb. This provides the lively and bright tone that lasts three to five times longer than any other coated or uncoated string. This means that you won’t need to change them as often. The coating is also thin enough that it is hardly noticeable, which gives them the same feel and sound of traditional guitar strings but with the added benefits of the coating.
