    Product Description

    A great set of strings make your guitar sing the way it should. The Elixir Nanoweb 9 - 42 Electric Guitar Strings give you great tone and articulation.

    Gauges:

    9-11-16-24-32-42.

    Nanoweb coating permits electric guitar strings with the feel, bright tone, and punch of traditional strings. Elixirs are the first major innovation in strings in over forty years, and they deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what you put them on or how often you play.

    Elixir Plain Steel Strings are covered with an ultra-thin, 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!

    In addition to an ultra-thin grunge-resistant tubular coating on the wound strings, Nanowebs now have a revolutionary Anti-Rust plating on the plain strings to extend their life too. Most players report that Elixir Strings keep sounding great 3 to five times longer than ordinary strings.

    A brief guide to electric strings:

    The strings on your electric guitar have a major impact on its sound and playability. The wrong gauge makes playing harder, the guitar feel wrong and can seriously reduce your enjoyment.

    Most new guitars come strung with light-gauge strings. For beginning players, that’s probably a good place to start. As you develop and your fingers gain calluses and strength, you may want to gradually move up to heavier strings, depending on the music you play.

    Lighter gauge strings:

    generally easier to play
    allow easier bending of notes and fretting
    can break more easily
    produce less volume and sustain
    prone to cause fret buzzing, especially on guitars with low action
    exert less tension on the guitar neck and are a safe choice for vintage guitars

    Heavier gauge strings:

    are generally harder to play
    require more finger pressure to fret and bend notes
    produce more volume and sustain
    are preferred for low tunings such as drop D
    exert more tension on the guitar neck

    Common Types of string

    extra super light: .008 .010 .015 .021 .030 .038
    super light: .009 .011 .016 .024 .032 .042
    light: .010 .013 .017 .026 .036 .046
    medium: .011 .015 .018 .026 .036 .050
    heavy: .012 .016 .020 .032 .042 .054

    Keep in mind that changing string gauges may require adjustments to your string height or “action” at the bridge saddles as well as adjustments to the nut and neck. Depending on your skill and the type of guitar you own, this may be better left to a guitar tech.
