Yup true, they last way longer then most of the strings i have used. But thats the only reason why i use them, otherwise at least in the first 2-3 days there's no difference IMO.

I expect I will give them a try sometime. I just don't have a problem, I have not had a string go bad ever except for broken top E strings, and those have just broken in the middle due to fatigue. I play a great deal. Maybe going to Catholic Church every day as a kid did this for me, dipping my hands into all the holy water, it gave them magical properties that keeps strings shiny and like new.

If you send me your strings, I will lay my hands on them and anoint them, for a fee, but I will be cheaper than Elixer.

Well I wipe my strings with cloth after playing more than 30 minutes.. just a quick swipe up and down .. I recently started doing this because some people are more "corrosive" than others, I happen to be a lot..

This have more than doubled the time before the strings will appear corroded, using Earnie Ball.

yeah... I use to, first wash my hands, second, frast fret and polish... the I play, and ALWAYS when I let the axe rest, I repeat the string cleaning. Actually, when I practice sitting down, I lay my guitar on a polish cloth that's on my knee. Also, if I change strings, I clean the fretboard with lemon oil too.

I think it's a good routine. Maybe too much, but I've always been very very kind and respectful with music instruments.

Cheers!

I recently tried them, but there was something with them I didn't like..? They have tone and all that, but...
I usually use Ernie Ball slinkys, and they have, how should I describe it, more sparkle to them. As if the note jump out faster from the fretboard than with the Elixirs... As if they are more responsive and trebley, could be the coating dampening just a little touch more. Well, it could be me imagining things, the difference is not that big anyway.

I have no problems with sweaty hands, so lifetime of strings is not a big issue for me, I'll stick with the slinkys for now..
