Elixir Strings with POLYWEB® Coating have the warm tone and smooth response of "played-in" strings and reduce finger squeak.
Why choose coated strings?
Uncoated strings do not have any protection from the direct contact with your fingers, and as gunk builds up in the string winding, the string is unable to vibrate as freely as when it was shiny and new.
With Elixir Strings, a protective fluoropolymer coating is added to the string via a patented process. The coating forms a barrier between the string and the environment. Since the entire outer surface of the string is coated, the gaps between the winding are protected. As you can see in the photos, after just a few gigs, an uncoated string shows the debris and corrosion in the winding, while the Elixir String remains nearly pristine.
Result: With Elixir Strings players tell us that their tone life lasts 3-5 times longer than that of an uncoated string. You’ll spend less time and frustration changing strings, and more time playing.
