User Feedback

Longevity is the main reason why people love Elixir strings, and this is a common sentiment in many reviews. Many are happy with how the strings sound and feel fresh, even after weeks of playing. The smoothness of the strings are also well appreciated, especially by those who prioritize playing comfort. For a light gauge set, many are surprised at how full sounding the Nano Web 80/20 is, and it does stay full sounding for much longer than regular non-coated sets.

Not everyone is pleased with the thin feel and sound of light gauge sets, and this set is not exempted from this drawback. Some are not happy that it is priced higher than their budget permits.
