Elixir 80/20 Bronze 12 String Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating,...
In stock at Guitar Center
Prolong your tone with the same acoustic guitar strings that experienced players worldwide trust to keep their incredible tone longer than any other string available.
Unlike other string brands, Elixir Strings coats the whole string. This protects not only the outer string surface but also the gaps between the windings where common tone-deadening gunk typically builds up in other brands’ coated and uncoated guitar strings. Anti-Rust Plating on plain steel strings ensures longer tone life for the entire set.
Who wouldn’t love more quality playing time between the hassle and cost of string changes?
Premium by design, these acoustic strings constructed with 80/20 (80% copper, 20% zinc) bronze wrap wire boast a crisp, bright tone with an expressive, vibrant presence. Compared to Elixir's original POLYWEB Coating, the ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating allows a more traditionally textured, “uncoated” feel.
For a slicker, gentler feel, try the original POLYWEB Coating on their 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Strings, which also feature a more robust and rounded tone. For more of a balance between bold and bright, Elixir's Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings with NANOWEB Coating deliver full-bodied tone and sparkling high-end clarity alongside the same traditional feel as these 80/20 bronze strings.
Of course, the kind of string you play is all a matter of personal preference. Not sure what tone or feel is right for you? Try them out for yourself, and find your new favorite string from Elixir Strings. For a more in-depth look at what makes our strings so special, scroll to the branded info further down the page.
Reviews From Buyers
I purchased these on a whim to string an old (1968) Ovation. I wasn't sure about the sound and the strings that were on it were the second set the guitar ever saw! I can't tell you how anyhting else would have sounded but these were fantastic. THe sound was bright, the sustain was moderate, the old soundboard has returned to life, and after two months on the guitar, I'm thinking about re-stringing it this weekend. I thought about Cleartones but decided I'd try them on '62 Strat. THe 12 string has found it's voice.
