Elixir 12-53 regular light NANOWEB coated phosphor bronze strings give you full tone and volume your acoustic guitar, yet they are easy to play. The regular light 12-53 gauge set carries slightly less string tension than medium gauge strings, but sound just as strong and rich. Made with phosphor bronze alloy windings, they naturally have a warm tone.
NANOWEB coating is invisible to the naked eye, but it locks out finger oils, grit, and contaminants that can collect in the spaces between the windings and rob the tone and the life of your strings. NANOWEB lets you enjoy your strings three to five times longer than ordinary strings, while retaining their natural tone and warmth.
The bare strings are also treated. They receive Elixir's Anti-Rust coating to prevent junk from sticking to them, and from killing their tone prematurely.
