Do you have any customs problems or the strings come without any taxes?

Indeed! biggrin.gif

A little bit off topic, but I can share some "inside information" that Elixir also will make guitar cables now (well, It's not a secret anymore since they announced it at NAMM). It comes with all kinds of guarantee about quality etc. so it sounds interesting and think I'll give that cable a try smile.gif

So you don't apply fastfret to the strings anymore? That's great news. Those strings must be great!

Well I still do sometimes,by mistake,it's more like bad habit now. wink.gif
There's no need too really,you can easily remove all dirt with cloth,
it just cannot affect steel part of string,coating does all protection.

I am using Elixir strings on my acoustic guitars and love them, but I have never used them on my electric guitars so far, how do you like them compared to other strings?

I've been using Polyweb 009-042 for more than 2 weeks by now,
it feels great,sound is the same as on first day,shining etc.
Perhaps it has a small amount of "muddy" sound,
like week old regular steel strings,there's is no too much of ringing,if you know what I mean.
But I don't miss the ringing as long as strings are shining like new ones. wink.gif

I haven't tried Elixir on an acoustic guitar yet, but I love them on my electric! Maybe it's a matter of taste, but I actually like the "feel" of the coating smile.gif It seem there's not as much resistance, compared to other strings. I haven't noticed any major difference in the tone though, I think they sounds about the same as other high quality strings.
