Looking for the Perfect Tone


Playing a guitar with OPTIWEB coated strings

That moment of joyful anticipation, feeling the natural grip under your fingertips and then playing those first few chords. You listen to the tone and realize: Right out of the package the strings have the crisp tone you desire. But there's also something more that makes these strings stand out.

Electric guitarists who are looking for this crisp tone, and a natural feel, often use uncoated strings. But in the past, this meant compromising on tone life. Not anymore. Thanks to an innovative new coating that Elixir® Strings applied to electric strings, they can have the best of both worlds.

Based on input from more than a thousand electric guitar players, Elixir Strings has expanded its portfolio with a new addition. OPTIWEB™ Coated strings, manufactured by W. L. Gore & Associates, sound indistinguishable from uncoated strings. And they share the long-lasting tone life Elixir Strings are known for.
