Elixir, the pioneers in coated strings, is shipping its newly expanded line-up of electric guitar strings which includes nine new sets for extended range guitars. In addition, two new Polyweb coated electric sets plus 20 new electric singles are also available. The new sets were unveiled at the Frankfurt Musikmesse in April.
Elixir says seven and eight-string electric guitar players have been vocal in asking for greater product selection across all three coating options from Elixir Strings since the launch of its Optiweb electric strings in March 2017.
‘Player demand for more extended range gauges has been overwhelming and we’re excited to show once again our commitment to the electric string marketplace,’ said Justin Fogleman, product specialist for W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc., parent company of Elixir Strings. ‘Electric players want long tone life, but don’t want to sacrifice their sound. Extended range players are no different. Now, with even more variety of electric gauges across all of our coatings, they don’t have to settle.’
Elixir Strings offers three coatings for electric guitar strings. Elixir says: ‘Optiweb coating offers a crisp tone and natural feel while Polyweb coating features a warm tone and slick and fast feel, and Nanoweb coating offers a bright tone and smooth feel. All three coatings offer the renowned tone life of Elixir Strings’.
