Thread Name: Elixir Guitar Strings
Subject: RE: BS: Elixir Guitar Strings
I own 2 Taylor Guitars both Dreadnoughts , a 410 & an 810. I think the 410 sounds great with Elixir Guitar Strings ( Have not checked out the Nanowebs yet ), however this 410 sounded great in the studio with D'Addairio Phosphur/Bronze medium guage as well. I will admit that Elixir strings do last a few weeks longer and maintain fairly good brightness. Now on my 810 ( which has much more bottom ,then the 410 because of the Rosewood back and sides ) , the Elixir strings sound OK , however, I need to put D'Adddario's back on this guitar ( and Martin Marquis's and John Pearce Strings ) to do a true comparison. In the States ,you can purchase on -line or via phone from JustStrings.com . The Price of Elixirs about $11.50 per set . This does not include shipping. I'm really learning that your guitar and your own subjective ear will let you know what strings are really the best !!
