Elixir Strings was born in 1997. Although we were working with guitar strings already, they weren’t anywhere near a guitar. Instead, we were using them as convenient test subjects in our attempt to develop a better variety of push-pull cable. As part of this work, our research team was coating the strings.
manufactured by W. L. Gore & Associates, are strings for electric, acoustic, and bass guitars as well as banjo and mandolin.
Elixir Strings are noted for their patented fluoropolymer coating. The coating extends the strings' life and tone by reducing the accumulation of debris and blocking corrosion from elements such as skin oil.
