  • What buyers say about Elixir 16052 Strings Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings w NANOWEB Coating

    The seagull coastline spruce is a short scale, lower string tension, and lasts a long time, but it's not as slick as the exps, but not enough to affect play.

    I have been using these strings for the past 5 years and they are really good, but I have never written a review before, but damn these are really great strings. I own a Jasmine by Takamine, a cutaway acoustic and this is my first time changing it myself and for the

    The guitar strings with the NANOWEB coating are great, but not here since Amazon did not charge sales tax. These strings last longer under pressure.

    The strings are bright, great sustain and they stay in tune right from the start, which is why I am not going back, they are sweet, bright, great sustain and they increase my speed and accuracy, not to mention the comfort factor on my finger tips.

    I need to change them because I leave them on for a long time for my home practice and for my performing guitar. I used to change those other guys very gig or every other and that was with using string.

    Common Questions


    What is the difference between 80/20 and phosphor bronze? Which is warmer, less bright?


    The polywebs will be warmer, but you can get more balanced volume out of the nano-webs when you really want to drive the strumming.


    Which one should I buy, a soft rope or a hard rope?


    I recommend the Elixer 16027, D'addario XSAPB1152, or the Martin MA535S.


    Are the 6 strings bronze and/or anti-rust coated, or are they E-1 and B-2 anti-rust plain steel?


    The wound strings have "Nanoweb coating" written on their paper packets.


    What are the number of strings in the package?


    There is a full set of 6 strings for an acoustic guitar.


    Do you think this would work for a Taylor 816ce?


    That guitar is on my wish list, it's made by Taylor and comes with Elixir strings.
