Elixir 16182 Nanoweb Phosphor Bronze HD Acoustic Guitar String Packs 小号
Elixir Acoustic Nanoweb strings don't just sound great; their micro-thin coating keeps them sounding great for a lot longer than average strings. If you want to keep your guitar tone consistently great day in and day out, put on a set of Elixir Acoustic Nanoweb strings. Their coating actually cuts down on unnecessary finger friction. You'll be amazed at how long they last! Less string changes means having to buy strings less often.

Interesting observations: Either these aren't official Elixir strings or Elixir is cutting corners on their Nanoweb coating. The glossy and cheap feeling box raised my eyebrow which caused me to conduct these tests.
1. Nanoweb coating should insulate electric current. These strings are clearly conducting and not coated with Nanoweb. I took the old strings currently on my D-35 for comparison, results were clear.
2. There should be obvious signs of Nanoweb coating on the strings starting from the base where the little metal o-ring is. Comparing my current authentic strings to the one I just received, there's a clear distinction on which has the coating. The coating also makes the strings look rose gold.
If you're sketchy that your strings are fake, look closely for a coating. Or feel the strings, if they don't feel smooth or your fingers don't easily slide, it's most likely fake.
But the important thing I want to stress is that if you are worried about receiving counterfeit Elixir's (or any top brand of strings that are also counterfeited) I think you're safe buying from Shoreline Music. I know I won't hesitate to buy from them in the future. By the way, there are sites that show examples of how to distinguish real Elixirs from counterfeits. The problem is that there have been packaging changes since the ones I found were put online and the close-up of strings are innacurate in some cases. For example, pictures of what is supposed to be real Elixirnanoweb PB strings show a very thick coating but the nano strings have a very thin coating that wouldn't show up in the pictures. There are other differences to that made those comparisons useless for me.
Luckily, I was apparently not born with a 'picky ear'. I can't tell the difference between one brand of string and another. They all pretty much sound the same to me. To me, the guitar itself seems to have a much larger influence on the tone than the strings do.
That said, the Elixirs have one thing going for them that uncoated strings don't. THE COATING!!! LOL
I have several guitars. Enough that if I tried to keep new strings on all of them, all the time, I'd be buying strings by the case, on a monthly basis. Sorry, but I'd rather spend that money on MORE GUITARS!
So instead of paying 6 or 7 bucks for uncoated strings (if that's still how much they are, I don't buy them anymore so I don't know), I pay 12 bucks, and instead of having to change them every month, I only have to change them once every couple of years.
The REALLY nice thing about them is, of course, the LACK of rust! I picked up a guitar at a friend's house not long ago and UGH!!! GOD THAT'S GROSS! Nothing worse than rusty guitar strings! It's been REALLY nice not having to deal with that for the last 10 years or so! It's nice to pick up any guitar in the house and it feels like the strings are still brand new.
I ordered these from Amazon. The packaging was the old art style, which I haven't seen in many years. The string felt rough and uncoated. It was also a different color than the authentic Elixir PBs I got from Musician's Friend. These fakes were a lot more brown looking. I think they are just a plain uncoated string.
STAY AWAY from Amazon.com's Elixirs, they are fake!
