Almost great but not quite there
Raz , 11.03.2020
I'm using the strings in standard tuning on a Tele.

I bought these string because I live in a humid environment and I've always had to change strings often due to oxidation.

Pros: - Solved the issue of oxidation. The coating on the strings really works.
- They feel very smooth to the touch and getting up and down the neck is fast and easy.
- Tuning stability is brilliant. Once properly stretched and tuned, they stay that way for a long time (at least on a Tele/string-through or fixed bridge).
- The sound is very neutral, in the sense of they doesn't emphasize any frequencies.

Cons: - The tension is quite high and it makes for more difficult bending. I'll probably try a lighter gauge.

I think these strings are worth trying. I'm not completely sold on them yet simply because difficulty in bending.

Long lasting, great sounding.
29.12.2015
Use:
I use Elixers on all my guitars. Tele, PRSCU24, LP and a custom build. I gig at least once a week (twice most weeks) and practice for aprox 4 hours/week.
Pros:
They 'stretch in' really quickly and hold tuning excellently. These are lasting me for 8 or 9 gigs (as opposed to 2 gigs with Ernies or D'addies) and they still sound pretty new when I change them!
Cons:
Sound a little bit darker than uncoated strings and the coating starts to flake off (for me) after 7or 8 gigs.

Overall:
Excellent value for money on a £/gig basis. These are reliable, good quality strings and well worth the money.
Although they aren't quite as 'bright' as uncoated strings, they sound almost the same the day I take them off as they did the day I put them on. They don't go 'dead' the way uncoated strings do.
I definitely recommend trying a pack

The best strings i have ever tried!
Fesh avo cado, 04.05.2020
I have tried about 15 different pairs strings from many brands . I was never satisfied so I gave elixir a try and I can surely say that I will never buy strings from another brand again.

Perfect for that certain Guitar.
Gatdoc, 11.10.2018
I love these for their quiet finger response and slick handling. They also sound good both unplugged and plugged in and suit guitars where a smooth response to finger and pick attack is favoured, such as my DiMarzio powered HSH Walnut strat. In the box this set will languish until the previous set from 4 years ago finally die.
For someone like me who builds and also refurbishes vintage guitars for pleasure and has as many as 35 guitars hanging up ready to play, these strings and the other Elixirs are a real advantage. I am so grateful.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
