  • What buyers say about Elixir Strings 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings w POLYWEB Coating


    I'm loving these, even if they cost a few bucks more, but I'm happy to pay that if I get double the string life.


    If you have high humidity, you should store your guitar in a room with no humidity and only control the humidity in the case.


    I've used other good ones, and I like Daddario Phosphor Bronze, but these are really good strings and they don't need changing even if you're sweaty.


    I love the sound of these strings on acoustic, they make my garage-sale fender sound like a taylor, and I know them, so I don't mind spending more money on them.


    They sound great for the longest time, but if you've never played a coated string, they'll take a little getting used to, but they'll win you over when they sound brand new for three times longer than strings you've used in.

    Common Questions

    Q:

    What is the difference between polyweb and nanoweb?

    A:

    The POLYWEB coating is thicker and works better at protecting the strings from hand oils, grime and the environment, which is why POLYWEB strings last for a long time.

    Q:

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

    A:

    I chose the nano web because I thought they were less likely to corrode.

    Q:

    Is the g string wound closed?

    A:

    Yes, all but the High E and B.

    Q:

    How do these compare to the Martin D-12-28 guitar?

    A:

    There are two thicknesses of Elixir coating available-polyweb andnanoweb, with poly being thicker.

    Q:

    I want to know if the Csg102a Yamaha student guitar is the right size and type.

    A:

    They are good strings that are easy to gauge for a student, but if your guitar is set up for heavy, they might buzz a bit.
