Great all-rounders

I find these strings a perfect pairing with my mahogany top guitar.

The sound is warm but also clear, well balanced between the different strings. I think singer-songwriters would favor these strings.

The feel is very smooth however the strings are very tough before being broken in. I took 3 days before they slackened enough to be comfortable for me.

I think the sound is great for most styles of music however I have difficulty imagining bluegrass being played on them.

I have been using different gauges of these strings for the past 4 years and I have settled on 11-52 as they have plenty of bass, mellow but clear and present highs and very smooths mids.

I recommend for OM, Grand Concert, Grand Orchestra style guitars.

Probably the best acoustic strings there is.

These strings work just great for me. After years of experimenting with various brands, I always come back to Elixir. For the acoustic guitar it's definitely the best option - strings stay fresh and "sparkly" for a longer time, even if playing regularly, and the protective cover they put on the strings somehow feels very comfortable. When using a fast-fret for cleaning, these strings retain the "just changed" feeling for at least some weeks. I also enjoy the phosphor bronze string sound - it's a bit more "mid-rangey" than bright in the upper end, but IMO that's the sound an acoustic guitar should aim for anyway.

Only con would be the price - Elixir costs almost twice as much as some other OK acoustic strings, but since they also last twice as long, it's worth it, although, when on a budget, it makes a difference.

Great Strings, Dodgy Quality

I love the Elixir Phosphor Bronze strings. Firstly, they sound great. The sparkle off them is just fantastic and, like it says on the pack, they last for ages. They really do.

Now, if I were to have a criticism of these strings it is that they break just a little too easily for my liking. They are expensive. In the .11-.52 pack, the G is a 0.22, It is extremely light. So when I order a pack I always have to order at least one extra G (0.23) because the 0.22 will snap during the first hour of the gig.

The E and B are also prone to snapping quite a bit too but other than that they are great strings and when they don't snap the freshness lasts ages. They are capable of withstanding months of heavy gigging and still sound great.

I love these strings but the whole G thing is very annoying.

Once you try them, you never look back

The first day with these strings may feel strange, they need a day or two to settle. But then the sound is brilliant, crisp. And they last for a very long time compared to other brands which justifies the price
