ELIXIR Guitar Strings from Gore are the technology solution for both the advanced and professional musician as well as the casual musician. ELIXIR Guitar Strings feature:
ELIXIR Guitar Strings Feature POLYWEB Coating, a unique high technology polymer that provides increased protection of wound strings from perspiration, dirt, and body oils, and still provides great sound. Of course, the coating wears off eventually, but sound quality is consistent during wear.
"Sound Quality That Lasts"
For Advanced, Professional and Casual Musicians.
Sound quality of ELIXIR Guitar Strings is rated by musicians,
as well as a sophisticated Dynamic Signal Analyzer (DSA). The DSA allows direct
measurement of frequency responses at all audible harmonics and overtones.
A custom, high speed Dynamic Mechanical Abrasion Tester is used to rate the durability of the POLYWEB Coating. The abrasion tester simulates aggressive play in the strum area with a heavy pick. String tension is adjusted to pitch during evaluation.
Sophisticated high-speed photography has been used by Gore engineers and musicians to better understand the vibration characteristics of a guitar string. The photography was particularly useful in increasing durability of the POLYWEB Coating.
