Elixir's Nanoweb Bass Strings are the perfect string for anyone who likes the punch of an uncoated string but the feel and long life of a coated one. By using their amazingly effective yet micro-thin Nanoweb™ coating, Elixir designed a bass string that delivers both great feel and awesome sound. The Nanoweb Bass strings also retain their powerful edge for a lot longer than traditional bass strings. Think about it, if you don't have to buy strings as often, that means more money left over for other great gear. So if you want the best of both worlds, pick up a set of Elixir Nanoweb Bass Strings today! But more important is the joy of knowing that your strings are always ready when you are.
