Every guitar in my house is stringed with strings of Elixir.
The Elixir-strings last three times more than regular strings. I compared it with strings from Ernie Ball and D'addario
The sound oft Elixir strings is a little bit metallic in my ears but only when the guitar is not amplified. It is not ear piercing, just a subtle change in sound.
For every guitar player who hates to restring his guitar, Elixir-strings are the best choice and in my opinion the only option because you really can play more than twice the time before restringing it again.
These are the best strings you can buy, so buy it!
