Elixir 12052 Nanoweb Nickel Plated 10-46 Light Electric Guitar Strings
Elixir Strings are the originators of the coated string. Elixirs are known for their ability to repel dirt all the while staying bright sounding and clean feeling. These strings ship on many guitars straight from the manufacturer. Taylor and Rainsong being two of the biggies.
We love these strings for their ability to stay grime free. They have plastic wound into them which doesn't allow for sweat and dirt to penetrate into the nooks and crannies of the strings the way a typical untreated round wound string does. This keeps them from oxidizing, rusting, etc for longer, allowing for more time in between string changes.
We love these strings for players who sweat a lot or find their strings aging quickly due to their highly acidic sweat. Some players burn thru string (almost literally!) and these do a superb job add prolonging time between strings changes. We recommend 10 gauge strings as being the perfect balance between ease of playability and tone for most electric guitars.
The Music Gallery of Highland Park sells Elixir Strings for the Acoustic and Electric Guitar. We also have them on many guitars that are in stock and available to demo. So if you aren't sure about giving them a shot on your guitar, you can try them out on one of ours!
