Elixir Strings has expanded its lineup of electric guitar strings to include nine new sets for extended range guitars as well as two new Polyweb Coated Electric String sets plus 20 new electric singles are also available.

According to Elixir, seven- and eight-string electric guitar players have been asking for greater product selection across all three coating options since the launch of Optiweb Coated Electric Strings in March 2017.

“Player demand for more extended range gauges has been overwhelming and we’re excited to show once again our commitment to the electric string marketplace,” said Justin Fogleman, product specialist for W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc., parent company of Elixir Strings. “Electric players want long tone life, but don’t want to sacrifice their sound.  Extended range players are no different.  Now, with even more variety of electric gauges across all of our coatings, they don’t have to settle.”

Elixir offers three coatings for electric guitar strings to complement every guitarist’s desired tone and feel.  Optiweb Coatings are designed to offer a crisp tone and natural feel while the Polyweb Coating features a warm tone and slick and fast feel. Nanoweb, meanwhile, has a bright tone and smooth feel.
