  • 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


    What is the difference between polyweb and nanoweb?


    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.


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


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


    Is the g string wound closed?


    Yes, all but the High E and B.


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


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


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


    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.
