Thread Name: Elixir Guitar Strings
Subject: RE: BS: Elixir Guitar Strings
I love the Elixer strings mostly because of their longevity... I usually change my strings (or should) every two to three weeks. With Elixers, I usually go at least two months or more before they need to be changed. In my area there's a music store that has them for $14.95 per set. I was able to talk them into selling me 10 sets for $100.00 which makes the savings huge considering how long they last.

I agree they don't start as bright as other strings but how long does that "brand new strings" sound last anyway? For me not even a whole gig.... jmho.....
