Elixir Polyweb Acoustic Guitar Strings are the first major innovation in strings in over forty years, and deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what you put them on or how often you play.

Elixir Strings are covered with an ultrathin, space-age polymer tube that contacts the string on the tops of the windings only. This leaves the all-important winding-to-winding-to-core space free from the fear of the enemies of tone!

Most players report that Elixir Strings keep sounding great 3 to 5 times longer than ordinary strings.

I usually rush to give out great reviews since I get excellent service from the L&M team on Lajeunesse in Montreal. I've always used the NanoWeb in the past and used to change them on a monthly basis. So, I bought the PolyWeb thinking they would last longer as the coating is a little thicker. The first set was great and lasted over 3 months; they had lost their sustain and sharpness but not their coating. Then, the last 2 sets of PolyWeb strings were a nightmare. When stringing the guitar, I noticed that the "G" string looked more like a regular Bronze string. The coating flaked off within 2 days and the string itself became oxidized and sounded dead. Then the "B" and the high "E" did the same and sounded dead as well. Within a week I changed the whole set to a new one, then, when stringing the guitar I noticed the following: the "A" (10th to 15th fret), "D" (8th to 11th), "G" (1st to 17th) strings seemed to have been missing some coating. The coating were already flaked out at the specific fret numbers mentioned above. They didn't rust, but they became oxidized after the first guitar practice which involved a light picking song I was learning then. I've spent an overall $500 in Elixir strings in the past 2 years (for Acoustic and Electric) and I won't buy them ever again. I'll still shop at L&M and will buy a different brand of strings.
