Best Strings EVER! May 03, 2008
By Matthew Brown
These are the best strings ever. I've tried almost every string on the market, and these are by far my favorite. They sound great and last forever. Believe the hype...they really DO last FAR longer than any other strings, and they sound great while doing it.
Many other strings will sound great for a short while, but as soon as they get "gunked up", they lose any brilliance and tone, and become dead sounding. Not these. They will sound great for the life of the string. In fact, the only way I know to change them eventually is not because they stop sounding good (which they don't), but because I'll start having intonation problems and I know the strings need to be changed. Normal wear and tear does that, but these strings last SO long.
I've tried the polyweb strings from Elixir as well, but I didn't like those at all. To me, they didn't FEEL right. Sticky or something (not like your fingers stick to the strings, but like you could tell they were coated). With the Nanowebs, they sound AND feel like regular strings, but last forever. The only string I'll use.

I would question any negative reviews here Dec 05, 2010
By E. Mccarron
I hardly ever review anything on Amazon, unless I really really think I should let people know about a great product and that's the case here. Sure these strings are pricey, and they do last a long time for sure, which should offset the cost somewhat... but to me the most outstanding aspect of these strings is the tone. I have a Gibson Les Paul and a PRS SAS and with these strings on both guitars seem to come alive in a way that is hard to describe. It's almost as if the guitar breathes better...if that makes sense. It's almost as if the guitars have a lighter finish, allowing more of the instruments natural harmonic overtones to come through... Highly Recommended.

Still feeling new Jul 05, 2010
My son bought these for his Steinberger, in hopes of saving money on strings. I can't tell you how pleased he is with these. For my son, regular strings have always started to feel "crummy" after only a week of playing, because of the build up of sweat and dirt. And that's with him taking the time to clean his strings. With these strings, weeks after putting them on, he says they still feel new. He's says they literally feel like he just put them on yesterday. Whatever miracle coating they use on these strings certainly works. My son likes them so much, he's getting ready to buy these for all of his guitars. This are great strings and well worth the price.

Love them Feb 14, 2010
By N. S. ALSINAN
Used a lot of strings (GHS, Fenders, Yamaha, D'Addario, Slinkys), by far the Elixir NanoWeb sounds best among them. They surly last a lot longer.
ALL STRINGS SOUND GREAT AT FIRST, they just have to. However, the Elixers do sound better in my opinion. They have a nicer cool mellow tone.

Very good. Hard to know when to change them. Aug 14, 2008
I really like these strings, because I have sweaty hands that tend to make the strings on my guitars corrode and rust very fast. I can play a guitar once, and leave it there for 2-3 weeks, and the strings will be rusty and nasty when I return to it. I now rub down the strings thoroughly after each session playing them, but this stil happens.
Then I happened across these Elixir nanowebs. They are great. I no longer need to rub down my strings so thoroughly, and they stay rust and gunk-free for 2+ weeks (of regular playing). However, I did encounter one strange thing. While playing at a rehearsal, my E-string just popped and broke, hurting my finger a bit. I was surprised, because outwardly the string didn't look that bad.
So that is the downside. With regular strings, you can tell the string is near the end of its life b/c it looks really bad. With these, they may still look okay but be close to breaking. Made me a little cautious.
I still prefer these 100% over other strings, though.
