NANOWEB® COATING
A New Range of
Elixir
®
Bass Strings
W hen
Elixir®
Strings set out to redesign their bass range they worked closely w ith the global bass community, asking
4000+ players w hat they needed from a bass string, and also recruited 1000+ players for field trials to help improve the
protective NANOWEB®Coating.
Their feedback drove the development of new Nickel Plated Steel and Stainless Steel Bass Guitar Strings. W ith improved
performance and a w ider choice, the new bass line that modern musicians demand is here.
The advantage of
Elixir
®
Strings
Big, bold and full round wound strings offer an unmatched tone that has become the standard for many bass players.
However, performance is compromised when dirt and debris build up between the gaps in the windings, contaminating
strings and killing tone.
But
Elixir®
Strings are different. The patented ultra-thin NANOWEB® Coating acts as a physical barrier between the string
and its damaging environment, ensuring that you sound better, for longer.
Elixir®
Strings is still the only brand to coat the entire string, protecting not just the outer string surface, but also the gaps
between the windings.
Elixir®
Strings retain their tone longer than any other bass string, uncoated or coated. * *
