Well, why did you buy them if they were to expensive? They're coated, so the tone lasts longer. Logic being they are 3x as much as regular strings so they should (although may not) last 3x longer tonewise.

Let's just say that one of my guitars has had Elixir 11s on it since January, and it still sounds pretty fresh and snappy and keeps tuning well.

im not sure why i bought them... lol i just have a tendancy to buy stuff and then feel stupid for spending too much money (or any money at all in some cases). i guess i made this topic hoping people would reassure me that i didnt waste money because i dont have much of an income...
#6
yeah, it is kindof rediculous. i protest by not buying them.
dont take any guff from these bastards man

$199 with the plan is a pretty good price for a well-enabled phone.

Go ahead.

Seriously, people say some dumb things on here.

And TS, Elixir strings are probably the best strings you can buy, well worth the money I'd say. They last ages.

Some stores get more than others the one where I live gets 10 bucks a set. I used to buy em but they have a really bad habit of breaking. Some use em with no problems. But Im hard on strings. So they didnt last longer than regular strings for me.
#16
They're actually nice strings. The will last alot longer as well. The thing that gets me really pissed off though is when I break one!!!

I just got some new strings for my violin. They were $70
I haven't tried elixirs, but if they sound decent and last as long as they're supposed to, I don't see how $15 is out of line.
P.S to the people who call strings crap because they broke-
ever stop to think that you just had some bad luck, or need to file your saddles? Surely you don't think that one string breaking is indicative of...well, anything at all? Data is not the plural of anecdote.
