Elixir Strings recently unveiled its latest innovation, the new OPTIWEB Coated Electric Strings.
OPTIWEB strings feature a lightweight coating that not only protects the string from the elements for longer tone life, but also allows the string to vibrate with less damping, for a crisp tone with a firm, natural grip.
“Guitarists who choose uncoated strings for their natural feel and tone used to have to compromise on tone life,” says Jason Zambotti, product specialist for W. L. Gore & Associates, parent company of Elixir Strings. “Now, with our latest advancement in electric string coating, you can have the best of both worlds—the performance of a natural string and the extended tone life of a coated one.”
Elixir’s Justin Fogleman demos the new strings in the clip below. “We designed these strings to have a really nice natural feel. They’re really comfortable and really easy to play, and just feel great under your fingertips,” Fogelman says.
Elixir OPTIWEB Coated strings are in stores now, available in Super Light (9-42), Custom Light (9-46), Light (10-46), Light/Heavy (10-52), and Medium (11-49) gauge sets.
