Product Description

Taylor Guitars worked with Elixir Strings to create a custom string set that brings bolder highs and fuller lows to the Grand Concert and Grand Auditorium guitars. Elixir Acoustic HD Light Phosphor Bronze Strings with NanoWeb Coating deliver bolder high end and fuller low end with a balanced voice across all the strings making them ideal for narrow bodied guitars. Comfortable balanced hand feel together with extended tone life.

Elixir HD Light NanoWeb Phosphor Bronze Strings Features
  • Bolder, stronger high end
  • Fuller, warmer low end
  • Balanced voice across all strings
  • Gauges: .013, .017, .025, .032, .042, .053
  • Developed with Taylor Guitars
One sign of a great guitar is its ability to sound like the same instrument from the lowest note to the highest note. In Bob Taylor's view, Andy Powers has a natural instinct for how to create that in a guitar, as demonstrated by the uniformity of character in the notes of the Grand Orchestra. A guitar's type and gauge of strings can play an important role in helping to express this.

For the 800s, Andy began by switching from Elixir Acoustic 80/20 Bronze Strings with NANOWEB® Coating, which we've been using for years, to Elixir Acoustic Phosphor Bronze Strings with NANOWEB Coating.

The phosphor bronze strings have a nice, rich shimmer on the high end, with a richer, broader warmth overall,’ he says.

Andy and the rest of the product development team liked them so much that they made the decision to install the Phosphor Bronze sets on all of Taylor's steel-string models for 2014.

More specifically, as Andy looked to optimize the tone for each body shape within the 800 Series, he explored alternative string gauge options, particularly for the Grand Concert and Grand Auditorium. Andy felt the overall articulation could be enhanced by creating the right tension profile at the bridge. Or, as Bob put it: ‘He wanted more guts out of the high end.’
